  • Reconnect with who you really are in the mind of God.
  • Build a new relationship with food that supports your physical and emotional needs.
  • Access your internal and spiritual power to transform your addiction and get you unstuck.
  • Completely surrender to the power of God as you begin to dismantle your fears in favor of love.
  • Partner with your body and spirit to emanate health and happiness.

Then this course is for you. We will be using Marianne Williamson’s ground breaking book; “A Course in Weight Loss”. It will set you on a journey to discover the 21 Spiritual Lessons for surrendering your weight forever.

This program will help you to...

  • No longer have faith in the power of your addiction and compulsion but place your faith in the divine power of God to illuminate your true self.
  • Counter the violence of eating toxic food by seeing eating as an act of self-love.
  • Stop eating as an act of self-sabotage and instead eat as an act of kindness that nourishes your mind, body and spirit.
  • Give up relying on your own discipline and will power and partner with God to transform your obsession with food into a love affair with food.
  • Establish rituals around sacred eating as you develop ways to say no to things that no longer serve your highest good.
  • Eliminate toxic food that will no longer seem exciting and begin to crave natural healthy foods.
  • Develop a practical approach to weight loss by calling on the divine to guide your way.

If you’ve tried to implement change on your own and you’ve either been unsuccessful or unable to sustain it; you’re not alone. When you join this program you will get the support and motivation you need to finally overcome your weight loss challenge.
