The GPS from the Twilight Zone
The biggest obstacle to transformation is the critic in your head telling you it’s impossible. What’s the point? It says. You’ve always been like this; you’ll always be like this. No one ever really changes. Might as well eat. By the way, what were you thinking when you wore those pants today? People have called this inner commentator the superego, the internalized parent, the inner critic. I call it simply The Voice. […]
Feed Your Soul
By Geneen Roth There are some things in life you take for granted: Your children will outlive you. No matter how tough it gets, you won’t poison your spouse with arsenic-laced toothpaste. And if you have a best friend, you will attend her wedding. But life sometimes upsets our most basic assumptions. And although I […]
Make Peace With Your Body
By Geneen Roth Hot weather is here. Time to lighten up on clothes. Time for shorts, sleeveless tops, swimsuits. Translation: Time for bare thighs, bare arms, bare back. Sigh. I have a friend who dreads summer because of what she calls the unveiling of her body. Peeling off her clothes, she says, reveals “the horror […]
On Retreat with Geneen
November 7-12, 2017
Pacific Grove, CA
What happens at a retreat — when you are away from your day-to-day life — is an unfolding that cannot happen or would take years longer to happen otherwise. After a few days, the membrane that separates you from yourself and your deepest longings begins to dissolve … and you move into the life you long for.
The Cookie Burglar: Stop Binge Eating
A few years ago, I worked with a woman who had decided to stop her nighttime bingeing by locking her food in cabinets and giving her husband the key. “It sounded like a perfect plan,” she said, “until I spent the hours after my husband went to sleep searching through his pockets, his drawers, and […]
When You Stop Judging Yourself
When You Stop Judging Yourself – NEW! During this lively, personal and inspiring talk (complete with questions and answers), Geneen reveals how judgment, criticism and shame never ever lead to transformation. With humor and compassion, she speaks to our familiar but often-missed physical and emotional reactions to inner judgment, how wily and true The Voice […]
Forgiveness is such a big word. And although we know it’s important to cherish ourselves and to accept the ways we are imperfect, we often don’t know where or how to start. During this inspiring talk …
Do You Love Your Thighs?
People usually come to my retreat because they want to lose weight. They want to stop suffering. They want to be happy. I talk to them about trusting themselves and about listening to their bodies. Once you do that, I say, everything — your relationship with food, yourself, your body — tends to fall into place.
How to Eat Less and Enjoy More
A few years ago, I was working on my laptop, developing a new workshop program, when one of my favorite series of all time came on TV — Pride and Prejudice (the one starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy, although let’s be frank: Is there any other?). So I nestled into the couch, preparing to […]
The Extraordinary Ordinary
When I was younger (well, really, until two years ago), the ordinary sounded boring. Just the word “ordinary” made me feel cranky, as if I was being sentenced to a lifetime of wearing faded brown muumuus that could fit my aunt Lucy, my cousin Poppy, and me. I wanted big success, big love, big highs […]
The Big Bad
Most of us are attached to our pain. Why? Because we’ve had it for so long. And we’ve made an identity out of it: “I’m somebody whose mother didn’t love her.” “I’m somebody whose father left.” I could feel this recently when I saw my own mother. I was with my best friend from college, […]
