What is Growing Human(kind)ness?

Trying to control the cravings, manage the overeating, or find the perfect diet that will finally cure you of your desire for food doesn’t work. What does work is healing the drive for food in the first place.

Learn how to heal the inner dynamics that drive you to seek out sugar or food. It’s this inner healing that creates behavioral changes in how you eat, what you eat, and how you care for your body. With this gentle path for healing, you can find hope, relief, and freedom. Explore the blog, podcast, and courses like the 30 Day Lift to transform your relationship with food.

Growing human(kind)ness is a developmental, heart based approach to outgrow overeating, binge eating, body obsession and sugar addiction. Rather than learning strategies to control or manage the food compulsion, Karly’s “heart over binge” approach heals the inner dynamics that drive it by creating an internal refuge, building emotional tolerance, and supporting neuroplasticity.

Growing human(kind)ness teaches you how to trade the false refuge of food or sugar for true refuge:  loving relationship with yourself, others and Life. This relationship is 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 or sugar.

This deep yet gentle healing is what creates both inner and outer freedom from sugar addiction and binge eating – lasting transformation without “white knuckling” it.

Loving relationship 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.
