The topic of my first published book, The Yoga of Eating, might seem very different from those of civilization, money, crisis, and transition that I explore in my other writing. There is a deep kinship nonetheless: The Yoga of Eating seeks to undo the “war against nature” in its interior dimension. It therefore advocates deep self-trust and explains how to recover authentic appetite, so that desire and willpower, health and pleasure, no longer need to be opposed.
The best endorsement of this book comes from a participant at a workshop long ago, who said, “After three decades of struggle, finally I am at peace with food.”
The chapter "The Illness Seeks the Medicine" has been translated into German.
