Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much like Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in Women Who Run With the Wolves, Anita Johnston uses metaphor and storytelling to show women how to reconnect with their inherent inner wisdom. By weaving practical insights and exercises through a rich tapestry of ancient tales, multicultural myths, legends, fairy tales, and folktales, she teaches women how to find the metaphors hidden in their own life stories, in their dreams, in their bodies, and in their relationship with food so they can break free from compulsive eating and food obsessions. Eating in the Light of the Moon takes readers on a journey to freedom from food, fat, and dieting by helping them to understand the root issues that lie beneath disordered eating habits, and develop the life skills necessary for recovery from disordered eating; learn the difference between physical and emotional hunger; understand how to read body signals so that they can eat when they're hungry and stop when full; use dreams to gain insight and direction; understand how their menstrual cycle can help them gain the awareness they need to break free of disordered eating behaviors; improve their communication with themselves and others by using words instead of food for expression; and much more.
