In our culture today,
what are women truly hungry for?
How can women support one another in overcoming the self-image issues that so many of us face?
How can women empower themselves to find the spiritual strength they so desire?
To answer these questions and more, join us at the Soul Hunger Workshop with Anita Johnston, PhD. Anita is an internationally renowned story-teller, speaker, and the author of the life-changing, enlightening book: Eating in the Light of the Moon.
Through her passionate, energetic story-telling of myths and metaphors from around the world, Anita explores the archetypal energies of the woman’s soul while guiding us on a spiritual journey to learn how these energies relate to us personally. Anita teaches that women struggling with food, eating and body image issues are actually experiencing a deeper longing inside, one to which the world’s vast history of Sacred Feminine myths and metaphors holds the key.
In a culture where issues around eating and body image are the norm among women, it is refreshing and enlightening to understand these challenges from a different perspective, and to realize that these issues are not beyond your control.
Do you find yourself perpetually
Where is that sweetness absent in your life?
Why do we gorge ourselves on food?
Is there something we are trying to push down or keep from feeling?
These are only two of the many ways to see eating and food cravings as metaphors and relate to them so we can find clarity and freedom.
Through shifting our perspectives, and using the myths and stories of the past as guideposts, we can learn to understand ourselves more clearly, and recognize how our cravings and hungers can give us valuable insights into what it is we desire in life. In this way we, as empowered women, can understand what we truly hunger for and move to fulfill our true craving instead.
It is by tapping into the timeless Sacred Feminine energy flowing through each of us, the energy of gentle compassion, clear intuition, and true power, that we discover and learn to utilize our own strength to heal and grow as women.
