Interested in Creating Inner Ease,
but not sure if it's right for you?
Some answers to frequently asked questions/concerns:
Our dieting culture embraces a failed paradigm. It teaches us that our bodies need to be controlled rather than trusted.
Instead of overriding your body's needs during this month, you will be spending a concentrated time tuning in to what foods makes you feel comfortable and vibrant and figuring out what gets in the way of inner ease.
We'll begin by adding in self-care practices that enhance our well-being. If you care to also reduce or eliminate certain foods or ingredients, you can do that too. Reduction and elimination may be helpful IF YOU CAN DO IT WITH KINDNESS.
Part of this experiment will be to consider the possibility of food sensitivities that can wreak all kinds of havoc in your body. Identifying these can be so helpful in resolving chronic digestive, mood, hormonal, skin and pain issues. We'll be taking a gentle look at the foods that take us out of our bodies (like sugar, caffeine and alcohol).
This is not a calorie restrictive program. You will be encouraged to eat when you are hungry. No white knuckling or fighting against your body, because ultimately, restriction causes an backlash...this is your body's way of seeking balance.
Throughout our month, you will eat from a wide variety of nourishing, tasty whole foods. You will be given a collection of recipes you can use to expand your repetoire in the kitchen.
This is a month of experimentation. I will provide recipes for you to experiment with. You can stick to my recipes, or just include some of them into your rotation.
The plan: discovering what you love to eat and what makes your body feel great.
I know that sounds weird, as if it's not hard enough. That's part of our diet and restriction-loving conditioning.
There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” way of eating. We are a sum total of our beliefs, experiences, identities, attitudes and unique biologies.
Our program is designed to meet you at your starting point with you as the ultimate expert of your body and guide you in making supportive and sustainable adjustments to your current nourishment practices.
The goal: more peace and more trust in your body.
Keep in mind that there are different tracks of participation. We will all participate in the "Adding In" track.
For those participants who want to determine if food sensitivities are undermining their well-being (in the form of chronic symptoms), they can choose to also participate in the "Testing" track. Even there, there are choices to be made about what participants want to experiment with. The goal here is to reduce agitation and inflammation in the body that could be causing inflamed moods, skin and joints, or causing anxiety, digestive issues and energy loss.
During the month participants will learn how to re-introduce any eliminated foods back into your diet (if you so choose) to find out how they are affected. The results can be life-changing.
Continue to feel your best and even reverse conditions that were being caused by unknown food sensitivities. We have clients that have discovered food sensitivities that were causing headaches, bloating or other signals. Once you are listening you can discover what those are for you. So liberating!
The course is built in a program called Ruzuku. It is an online program so you will be able to access the materials from wherever you are.
You will also be added to a closed Facebook group where you can be a part of an encouraging conversation, additional tips via FB live, and recipe shares.
You will have access to the course materials for 6 months. This will allow you to start at a different times if life gets in the way or if you want to repeat the program. This access will also allow you to check back in with the content as you continue your journey nourishing your beautiful body.
Supplements are not required.
You will have access to vetted supplements at a 15% discount which will continue after the month.
Supplement recommendations will be provided.
We will talk about movement as an important aspect of self-care and experiencing the gifts of your body. We will focus on pleasurable ways to move your body as opposed to exercise to change the shape of your body. All abilities supported.
