Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

The Present of Presence

“When you … fall into presence … you know it instantly, feel at home instantly. And being home, you can let loose, let go, rest in your being, rest in awareness, in presence itself, in your own good company.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn

Think back to the holidays last year. Can you recall the joy and frustrations, the peace and nourishing connections? Most people cannot.

So often we show up, but we are not really present in what we are experiencing. We dash around getting things done, but we do not pay attention to what we are doing. We eat without awareness of our hunger and fullness signals. We swallow our food without really tasting it. We push ourselves to go on when we need to rest. We interact without really connecting.

As the new year approaches, imagine experiencing the rest of the month with such exquisite awareness that the joys, frustrations, peace, and nourishing connections may easily be recalled one year later. Imagine being able to be awake to what is and fully present to each moment, despite commitments and life’s pressures.

Imagine truly tasting what there is to be tasted, seeing what there is to be seen, sharing what there is to be shared, and feeling what there is to be felt.

Imagine giving yourself and those around you the gift of presence.

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
