Retreats and Workshops with Geneen Roth

I am still reeling from the transformation that I never thought was possible. I was at a point where I thought I was stuck forever. But to actually experience freedom with food, and how that translates to my partner and children now that I am home -- well that is beyond miraculous.

— Jamie Hernandez


Your relationship to food is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. No matter how sophisticated, wise, or enlightened you believe you are, how you eat tells all. If you want to understand and change your beliefs about abundance, scarcity, deprivation, relaxation, kindness, and what you deserve to give yourself, the world is on your plate. When you begin to understand what prompts you to eat when you aren't hungry, the process takes you deeper into realms of spirit to the bright center of your own life.

Beginning with the longing to be free from issues of eating, wanting more, and never having enough and using the strength of that longing, we will explore basic questions such as: What am I really hungry for? How can I have what I want without suffering afterwards? Can I see myself and be seen for who I am? What would happen to my world and who would be threatened if I were happy? Is it possible to contact the source of love, light, stillness, peace and to live my life from that place?


Workshops with Geneen

End the Struggle.  In this weekend workshop, you will learn the tools of inquiry, body-sensing, meditation and Geneen's Seven Steps to Freedom with Food that are the basis of the journey itself. Rather than getting rid of your conflicted relationship with food and your body, you will become aware of what's standing in your way. You will learn to welcome what is already here, contact the part of yourself that is fresh and alive, and live the life you truly want.

Retreats with Geneen

There is an unfolding that happens in this time away from your regular life that cannot happen or would take years longer to happen otherwise. After a few days of being away from your day-to-day life, the membrane that separates you from yourself and your deepest longings begins to dissolve. The thoughts and beliefs that continually keep you from being yourself become apparent. In this safe, nurturing space you will move into what you really want for your life.

The time we spend together will be soul, body and spirit time. We will explore what keeps us from committing to the promise of ourselves. We will explore the foundation upon which we build our lives and open the direct experience of spaciousness, happiness and joy by sensing our bodies, living with support, and developing the ability to feel emotions without acting them out or repressing them.


  • Discovering that no situation or feeling is unworkable
  • Directly working with eating itself, learning to listen to your body and feed it what it truly wants
  • Understanding what keeps you from freeing yourself from the pain around food
  • Turning off the "crazy aunt in the attic" and treating yourself with exquisite kindness
  • Discover gratitude for and confidence in your own life, and find peace within yourself and your world
  • Letting go of the constant battle with yourself, food, money, and having enough
  • Learning and directly experiencing what enough is
  • Building on all that is already good and already working in your life
