What is Growing Human(kind)ness?

Growing human(kind)ness is a developmental, heart based approach that heals the roots of food compulsion and eating disorders. Growing human(kind)ness teaches you how to trade the false refuge of food, sugar or the eating disorder for true refuge:  loving relationship with yourself, others and Life. This relationship is then the foundation for growth: changes in how you eat, how you care for (and feel about) your body, and how you relate to the needs, impulses and emotions that can drive you to food.

Rather than controlling symptoms or managing behavior, you’ll heal the inner dynamics that drive the food compulsion in the first place. This deep yet gentle healing is what creates both inner and outer freedom from food compulsion, what creates lasting transformation without “white knuckling” it.

Loving relationship – secure attachment, belonging and connection – brings your heart and mind to rest. It softens the brain’s natural defenses, releases wounding, and opens the heart. Through loving relationship, your true self unfolds in the world.
