Are you well nourished? – not just your body but your whole self?
We tend to think of food as nourishment for the body only, but we often overlook nourishing the other dimensions of our lives. Balanced eating and exercise is important, “but unless we nourish all the parts of ourselves,” writes author Andrea Lieberstein, “our lives can feel empty at the core.” In this practical guide to mindful eating and living, Andrea identifies eight aspects – eight “bodies”—that need to be satisfied in order to live a fulfilling life. And these bodies want to be nourished in distinct ways. For example, we may feed our physical body with food when it’s our “emotional body” that is hungry for more meaningful connections. Filled with tools, meditations, mindful practices, and step-by-step guidance, Well Nourished shows how to create new patterns, heal one’s relationship with food, and cultivate a life that is fulfilling on all levels.
Praise for Well Nourished
This is a wonderful book that integrates a practical and inspiring path to nourishing the whole self, honoring mind, body and spirit. Clear tools and mindful practices based on scientific research, wisdom practices and Andrea’s expertise are offered throughout that if followed open the door into living a life that is nourished, fun, resourced and whole – with food in its place as a source of nourishment not struggle.
~ Joan Borysenko, PhD author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
This book is medicine for your soul. It will take you on a journey exploring the different aspects of your self, showing you how to receive deep nourishment and be happy from the inside out. The clear, powerful practices give you tangible ways to balance and nourish your own life and, through your own fulfilled life, help nourish the world.
~ Marci Shimoff, New York Times Bestelling author of Happy for No Reason
Well Nourished is a beautiful book. Its message is not about depriving ourselves of food but truly serving ourselves with a feast that supports health, happiness, and a meaningful life. I highly recommend this wise and loving book that guides us in living the life we want to be living.
~ Bob Stahl, Ph.D., co-author of A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, Living With Your Heart Wide Open
The spirit of this book is all encompassing, creating a path to higher wisdom through deepening our relationship to food, eating and our bodies. This broad wisdom is complemented by many practical elements to help you along the way, tools to be used and questions to be reflected on, drawing on that capacity for mindfulness that we all have to cultivate deeper understanding and balance.
~ Jean L. Kristeller, Ph.D., Author, “The Joy of Half a Cookie”
Andrea Lieberstein’s book helps the reader with an essential task – realizing the full potential of their life. This workbook guides us through an assessment of eight realms in our life that require “nourishment” through mindful attention. These include the realms of the physical, emotional, psychological, social intellectual, creative, spiritual and worldly. Through her clear writing, stories, science-based practices and creative exercises the author guides the reader in forming a plan for a life that is well rounded, well nourished and personally satisfying.
Well Nourished is a rich and comprehensive guidebook that not only helps the reader establish a healthy relationship to food, but uses it as a vehicle to greater experience consciousness, mindfulness and true fulfillment in all areas of one’s life. As a result it allows your goodness to shine through and help awaken it in those around you. An excellent offering.
~ James Baraz, author of Awakening Joy: 10 Steps to Happiness and co-founding teacher, Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, California
Andrea Lieberstein’s Well Nourished is a delightful feast combining behavioral science research, practical exercises, and a heathy dose of personal and professional experience. She has crafted a sensible and compassionate guide to nourishing yourself in body, mind and spirit.
