Welcome to the Eating Peace Core teleclass. An course to truly get the hang of the approach to eating issues where we look at our inner world to find relief, and freedom through self-inquiry and The Work of Byron Katie.

If you would like to address the deepest underlying beliefs around what makes you eat, or reach for food, when you are not hungry….this is a fabulous, safe and powerful place to do it.

In the very first week, you will have the opportunity to think about the boundaries and parameters of what you will commit to when it comes to eating, during this program (and likely beyond). It may be “to eat without ever bingeing” or “to eat a balanced diet–and you can get this from a doctor or from a program that works for you–and not move outside this food plan” or “to eat without ever forcing myself to purge with exercise or throwing up”. You could even decide your plan is “three normal meals per day, with a one-serving dessert at every meal” if you want to explore allowing fearful foods into your life like never before.
This plan would be for you to explore, so you’ve got a basic structure for yourself and solid ground to stand on during this program. If you need a structure and haven’t found one, I can direct you to how. We’ll discuss this on the very first call.
Here’s what we’ll cover during this 12 Hour Core Course in Eating Peace (sometimes 8 weeks for 90 mins each, sometimes 6 weeks for 2 hours each).
Module One: Underlying Beliefs
Classes 1 & 2 — Finding the underlying beliefs that cause you to feel you have no choice but to reach for food, think about food, starve yourself, or eat food you don’t really want. I’ll give you the top underlying beliefs I’ve found people have who eat out-of-balance and we’ll explore them using The Work of Byron Katie. Everyone will consider and decide their eating plan and send it to me, so they know what their basic structure is and can track their (very quick) behaviors. You will be invited to keep to your eating model/plan and connect honestly if you need to adjust it or want to move away from it.
Module Two: Judging The Body and Body Image and The People We Blame
Classes 3 & 4 — You will focus on what you don’t like about your body and allow your thoughts to show you how this is similar to other things you resist about your life (the never-ending drive to change). You’ll get to consider what it is you really want, if you had your body just right….or even your mind “just right”.
Even if you know not to blame other people for your sorrows and frustrations with eating…there are some people who have strong influence over what you believe. Mother, father, siblings, society, other family of origin, partners. Where did you learn some of your concepts about food, eating, bodies and feelings? Who taught you? Did anyone criticize you? Did anyone suggest you diet? Who withdrew love, approval or appreciation….and made conditions (if they did)? We’ll explore the influence of others and how it ignites eating in us.
Module Three: Peace Beyond Beliefs
Classes 5 & 6 — We’ll look at other core beliefs we’re thinking that seem to propel us towards food (or other compulsive behaviors). If your eating doesn’t have to do with food….what else is there not enough of? What else is there too much of? What kinds of feelings would you prefer to avoid? Or seek? In this final module, for these last two classes, we’ll look together and core beliefs about life and reality that live within, that bring about compulsion with eating.
Highly recommended to get the most out of this course:
- Come live to the calls or listen to the recording if you miss a class
- Read Loving What Is by Byron Katie
- Keep a Journal during the course
- Be willing to get facilitated outside of the class by someone using The Work (Help Line or a class partner or someone else you know)
The best part was joining with others
“The best part was the joining-with part. Joining with you and the other participants, hearing their work, sharing my own. To not feel alone with this anxiety, to hear my experiences are the same as others’ experiences. To have a place to share where shame and embarrassment are irrelevant. A place where others understand the importance of coming to grips with this particular situation.” ~ Seattle, WA
