Lectures and Meditations by GENEEN ROTH
Geneen’s work spans 30 years and follows a well-defined and reliable path of transformation, and each CD describes different aspects of that path.
Three Steps to Change: Awareness – Choice – Action
In this inspiring talk, Geneen explains the three steps for changing your life-long relationship to food: awareness, choice and action. Because awareness and compulsion cannot co-exist, Geneen shows us how in every moment, we have the chance to re-direct our attention and make a conscious choice to not only break free from compulsive eating, but to have a life directed and inspired by our choices. This engaging 45-minute talk was recorded live at Geneen’s Women Food and God Retreat.
Radical Kindness: An Eating Meditation
The daily meditations at Geneen’s retreats are filled with huge insight, humor and, of course, radical kindness. In this hour long CD, Geneen works directly with retreat students during a meal, and all that is revealed on our plates when we break the automatic, hand-to-mouth compulsion. The depth of truth telling and insights that unfold are breath-taking and will affect how you eat and feel about the food on your plate.
Ending Obsession: The Universal Principles
Meditation is a way to come home to yourself. A way to be yourself. Everything that happens is here and now, and when you take time to steep in what you already have, you begin to inhabit a world in which you are fully and abundantly alive. Perfect for everyday use, Geneen guides you through an entire meditation session complete with instructions, softly ringing bells, moments of silence and gentle reminders to come back to this moment.
The Cure Begins Here
During this deeply affecting talk recorded at one of Geneen’s recent residential retreats, she explore turning points — those moments when life offers you a choice to turn toward or away from yourself. Describing her own turning points, Geneen reveals with candor, insight and laugh-out-loud humor how to use those moments in your life to discover the richness of your true nature. Where do you turn away from yourself and go for the metaphorical “hot fudge sundae?” Discover how to begin that journey in this powerful one-hour talk.
Drop The Struggle
This live talk is about ending the struggle of dieting, forcing, depriving and continually trying to fix ourselves. Through a process called inquiry, Geneen teaches how to actually feel our feelings instead of numbing them with food. Included is a deeply revealing visualization to help us drop below the continual chatter of our busy minds to a direct experience of presence and clarity. Instead of repeatedly struggling for the next thing that will surely, finally make us happy, we can realize that all we want –- all we ever wanted –- is right here, right now.
Hidden In Plain Sight
Using the principles of breaking free in this live talk, we learn the fundamentals of freedom from the obsession with food. And are reminded that what we truly want is not the one or two or three things we think will finally make us happy, but that our peace and contentment is always with us waiting to be known.
Being With What Is
In this live talk given at a retreat, Geneen uses candor, humor and insight to describe the process of being in the present moment — “what is” — as we go through the many moments of our lives. Since the past is gone and the future is not yet here, the only place that life unfolds is in this very moment. The audio ends with a guided invitation to eat a meal, while noticing your relationship with what you eat. Included are insightful answers to questions from retreat participants.
The Portal to Everything
In this exciting and live lecture, Geneen introduces us to a step-by-step process that enables us to come to ourselves by reclaiming our wholeness, exploring our inner stories, and diving into our depths with wonder, curiosity and acceptance.

This audio is designed to be used in the morning, when you first wake up, and at night, before you go to sleep as a way to remember and be present for the treasure that you call your life. Beautifully scored by Kit Walker.
The Deepest Hunger of All: Emotional Eating and Spirituality
In this live lecture, Geneen eloquently and compassionately addresses the underlying causes of emotional eating patterns — and the process of turning what many of us consider to be our worst problem into our greatest opening. Since the way we eat is the way we live, what we do with food is an opportunity to wake up to the entire rest of our lives, and how we deprive ourselves, how we give to ourselves, whether we allow ourselves to receive pleasure, joy and happiness. This audio presents the path of healing and radical transformation that emotional eating provides.
Everyday Eating: Amazement at Mealtimes
Amazing thing happen when we pay attention to what we are eating! When we actually taste the food that is in our mouths, our feelings abut ourselves, food and life changes dramatically. In her retreats, Geneen spends time with participants while they are eating — and these experiences turn out to be surprising, joyful and utterly profound. This audio provides the opportunity to have the hands-on workshop experience at home, before, during and after a meal. With Geneen’s expert guidance, re-experience the full splendor of taste, texture, color and aroma of food in your everyday eating. Grammy-award-winning composer Kit Walker wrote the ambient score to accompany this audio.

What To Do in the Middle of a Binge: Guidance When You Need It Most
Binges are frantic, fierce times. We feel as if we are possessed, overtaken, and helpless to do anything about the wild energy that wants to consume everything in sight. In this CD, Geneen infuses compassion and kindness — qualities of which, when bingeing, we are in short supply — into the very heart of our compulsion to eat when we are not hungry. Music for this audio was composed by Grammy award-winner Kit Walker to lovingly support your inquiry. Geneen’s voice brings invaluable and compassionate guidance to the times you feel most despairing and alone.
