More about Peaceful Weight Loss

[Editor’s note: After reading Brandt Passalacqua’s excellent blog post, I had to admit that my curiosity was piqued. So Brandt thought it might be fun to do an interview. Our schedules and distant time zones made it hard to connect and but we managed, through the magic of email, to get it done.]

I have had the privilege of working with many experienced meditators on their personal food issues. It’s always a real pleasure when a long-time practitioner walks into my office. As they tell me about what’s troubling them I often hear the phrase “how could I have missed this?”. Total confusion, sometimes even desperation, is in their eyes.

It’s often a relief for people to hear that so many of us “miss this”.

Something as basic as eating - is a big deal. How do we really look at something this primal without judgment? How do we change our reactions to these ideas and patterns that have formed before birth?
