Food and Emotional Nourishment
Food is an essential building block of not only our physical body, but our emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as well. Food is our initiation into culture and belonging as nourishing pieces of our identity. Food shapes (literally and figuratively) our relationship to our body. How we learned to relate to food informs how we relate to others and physically engage a sense of self worth every single day. In this episode (originally a webinar,) I discuss food from a spiritual perspective and offer insights as well as practices to encourage you to engage more deeply your own relationship with food, self-worth and belonging. If you are interested in ancestral and ritual practice, you will especially enjoy this class. *If you are interested in my Goddess Cleanse, purchase at the link below and use code NOURISH at checkout for 50% off!

How to Heal: Food, Sex and Self-Expression with Sarah Pachelli
I spent the afternoon interviewing my peer and soul-sister, Sarah Pachelli yesterday, and came away with some sweet downloads:  food, sex and pleasure are basic human needs. How we relate to our basic needs is our primary indicator of our self-worth and overall health.  HOW we relate to ANYTHING determines whether it will be toxic or medicinal. the way to know if something is "right" for you is to be with the feeling of pleasure before, during and after your interaction. the quality of your digestion is the precursor for the quality of your discernment. your gut literally shines the light so you can see clearly where you're going, what you're doing and what's needed. "not knowing" in your front-brain, but knowing in your gut is very feminine, very primal, very soul-based wisdom, and it is, unfortunately, a skill that most of us are cultivating. women, food, sex, pleasure and fulfillment ARE not only the sources of life, but the meaning of life Find Sarah on Instagram (@sarahpachelli) and Facebook (Sarah Pachelli) or through her website (https://www.sarahpachelli.com)
