When Food is Your Mother
September 14 - November 12
It’s easy to look at overeating or any kind of overdoing with food as proof of ‘badness,’ a moral failure. It might seem like a lack of character or strength.
But there are good reasons why you overeat! When we feel overwhelmed, stressed, and caught in painful emotions, everything in our neurobiology is wired to connect.
In the absence of true connection, we can turn to other places of safety and holding – like food. When we’re under stress, we can turn to food as a ‘mothering presence’ – a place of care, nurturing, and understanding.
So the motivation behind overeating is to offer ourselves care – to self nurture.
In When Food is Your Mother, you’ll learn how to soften a pattern of using food for self nurturing, soothing, and stress relief and how to deepen true refuge – true connection – with yourself, with others and with life.
What makes When Food is Your Mother unique is that it weaves in the understanding and insights of attachment science and developmental psychology into the area of overeating.
