Bestselling author of Women Food & God, Geneen Roth
We respect your privacy. Your information stays with us.
It’s been eight years since Women Food and God exploded on the national stage, reached millions of people, and spent six months parked on top of the New York Times Bestseller List.
With Women Food and God, Geneen Roth began a radical and revolutionary conversation about the far-reaching effects of our relationship with food: that everything you believe about everything—love, pleasure, joy, scarcity, deprivation, fear—including what you are allowed or not allowed to have in your life...is on your plate.
After the publication of Women Food and God, Geneen made a remarkable discovery—she realized that she could use the same process that allowed her to heal her relationship with food with all the areas of her life that she struggled with such as self-criticism, low-level anxiety, feelings of worthlessness, lack and discontent.
By turning towards all that she’d been avoiding facing, or judging as wrong and flawed, something miraculous and unexpected began to happen. She discovered that happiness, joy, intimacy, love, passion, purpose and fulfillment were RIGHT HERE in the midst of imperfection and messiness.
It turns out that what we call the messiness of our lives is the DOORWAY to the magnificent. There is no need to keep searching out there for answers. You already have them, although most of us have not been taught how to find them.
Join Geneen for the recording of this 2 HOUR VIDEO special event where she’s going to share a preview of the long-awaited Women Food and God follow-up book, This Messy Magnificent Life.
She’ll be joined by special guests, literary legend Anne Lamott, who wrote the forward to This Messy Magnificent Life and is also the author of many New York Times bestselling books including Bird by Bird, Hallelujah Anyway, Help,Thanks, Wow; New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lesser, founder of Omega Institute and author of Broken Open and Marrow; and hosted by Dr. Claire Zammit of the Feminine Power programs for women.
This Messy Magnificent Life is about getting down into the hidden secret places where we all feel that we’re unworthy or “not enough” or we don’t have the right to take up space. It’s about transforming those old, core beliefs so that we experience—even when we are sick, sleepless, anxious, or cranky—the true re-enchantment of everyday life.
"In this book we experience Geneen Roth's signature divine wisdom and hilarious humanity—but she also shows us something new and important: how our individual body and food obsessions are directly linked to our collective oppression as women—and how getting free from our personal prisons is crucial to seeking liberation."
~Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 New York Times bestsellerLove Warrior and founder and president of Together Rising
“This book delivers a brilliant, funny, and frank offering at the stroke of midnight (just when we need it). This Messy Magnificent Life is magnificent, hilarious, and 100% the generous, complicated gift that is Geneen Roth’s imagination, experience, and soul, on a platter. 2018 will be made easier to navigate with this book by my side.”
~Kathy Najimy, actor, activist, director
“I’ve long admired Geneen Roth’s approach to food and its place in our lives. In This Messy Magnificent Life: A Field Guide she goes beyond food and shows the complex interconnection between our minds and the bodies we have the power to heal. Her insights and simple practices will help readers rediscover the power to live their most vibrant lives.”
~Dr.Mark Hyman, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat Fat Get Thin

~Dani Shapiro, author of the New York Times bestsellers Hourglass and Devotion
