At the Institute, here's what we believe
Food and body challenges are not
Food and body challenges are not the enemy.
We're dedicated to...
helping people around the world see the hidden wisdom in their food & body challenges, and learn how to use that wisdom to transform the way they eat, think, and live.
Here's what we'd love you to know
Life today is richer and more challenging than ever before, which can cause more pressure, stress, and overwhelm - affecting every area of life, including our relationship with food.
Food and body challenges can have multiple causes, whether rooted in our biology, psychology, emotions, or spirituality.
Regardless of their cause, eating concerns are an opportunity to grow and transform.
Every eating challenge has a hidden message of wisdom.
Everyone has their own beautiful and unique journey with food.
Therefore, you deserve an approach to healing your eating concerns that celebrates and honors your uniqueness.
Life gets good when you decide it is - not when you reach your “ideal weight” or “ideal body” or have the “perfect” eating style.
Your new relationship with food and body starts NOW.
All of our life domains can impact our relationship with food.
As you become the person you’re meant to be, your relationship with food and body will naturally arrive at a place of freedom and peace.
Our natural physiology wasn’t designed to live in a state of such heightened stress, but here we are: as messy, human, and complex ... as we are beautiful, awe-inspiring, and magnificent.
So let’s take a
different approach -
One filled with self-compassion, self-love, self-acceptance and self-trust.
What if we understood the biological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual reasons for our eating challenges, and worked to tend to those places inside ourselves in need of care?
What if we could relax, open our minds, and offer ourselves support and kind thoughts?
and we’re on a mission to make it happen by:
❤️ Sharing our holistic understanding of what eating challenges really represent: a doorway into our hearts, minds, and souls
✨ Inspiring you to see the beauty, goodness, worthiness, and inherent potential in yourself as a human being
🔥 Exploring the biological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual purpose of food and body challenges, and catalyzing real, lasting transformation
💭 Bringing Eating Psychology to the table and retraining your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings about food and body, alongside all other aspects of your life
🔦 Helping people develop the courage to go into their dark places, and ultimately find the light waiting on the other side
🌎 Training coaches in Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition so our mission can be spread around the world
Here’s what we believe:
You were born to: Experience the joy, heartbreak, love, loss, fulfillment, and happiness that makes life rich. You were also born to be an eater and to nourish yourself with good food.
You need to: Let go of perfectionism. Listen to and learn from your food and body challenges, and heal yourself from the inside, out.
You deserve to: Feel worthy, simply because you’re alive - without doing, achieving, or changing anything about yourself.
You can: Choose to feel good about your body, nourish yourself with good food, and create the life you want.
You will: Transform your relationship with food and body as you open your mind to the lessons that lie within your eating challenges.
