On Monday Morning
Here’s Monday’s reminder to notice — and maybe even be dazzled — by the wonders of the day.
The Big Life
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 muumuu’s that could fit my aunt Lucy, my cousin Poppy, and me. I wanted big success, big love, big highs […]
Somebody at one of my retreats said once, “I get a gold star for choosing this.” But the thing is that there is no one in the sky giving gold stars. Nobody’s giving you a gold star for doing it right. I mean, maybe you’ll get a promotion at work. That’s great. But if you’re […]
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 […]
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 […]
Feed Your Soul
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 haven’t resorted to […]
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, […]

“A compelling, gorgeously written, searing, funny, and utterly inspiring book. You won’t be able to put Lost and Found down and when you’ve finished it, your relationship with money will never be the same.” – Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money
Women Food and God Online Course 2: The Eating Guidelines
Part Two of the Women Food and God Online Course goes into exquisite detail on the If Love Could Speak (to you about food) Guidelines.

It matters whether what you eat enlivens you or makes you lethargic. In this online course, food myths are deconstructed, and you discover how to eat what your body (not your mind) wants as a peaceful relationship with food becomes your day-to-day reality.
