I always knew there was a connection between spirituality and weight loss and Marianne Williamson is now teaching it with clarity and passion.

Marianne Williamson is a New York Times best-selling author, and she is brilliantly bringing this knowledge to you in 21 spiritual lessons that will inspire you  to surrender your excess weight forever.

She addresses the spiritual, emotional, and psychological elements involved in what Marianne refers to as “conscious weight loss.”

Whether you are a food addict or a compulsive eater, or if you have loved ones who are, you will treasure this book.  I think it would be a perfect Holiday gift  for someone you really care about.

A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever will take you to the root causes of your addiction to food and brings back the natural intelligence both of the mind and of the body.  A lesson at the time, you will be guided to integrate body, mind and spirit into the truth that as you let go of fear, love, the true essence of who you are, brings in sanity, healing, and real beauty.

Here’s the special offer I just found out about:

If you order today, you will receive FREE gifts from Hay House, including a video seminar on A Course in Miracles, meditations from the Meditations for a Miraculous Life CD, and audio downloads of the Age of Miracles audio book and Being in the Light CD set.

This is just one of the pearls you will receive from Marianne:

“The spiritual theme of my book is this: the realization that while an addictive impulse can trump your better knowing and conscious will, the power of God will trump your addiction. While we often intellectually understand this principle, it can be difficult to actually apply to our lives. And that is why I wrote this book. It provides simple lessons in restoring your mind to its highest, most loving functioning. And in the presence of that love, all dysfunction disappears.”

Feeling the Touch of Nature

This morning, I woke up early. I went out where my porch faces east, and I watched the sun rise up out of the ocean. It was an amazing, sensual experience.

The colors flooded across the sky in spirals. Their bright reflection in the quiet river amazed my heart. It was just as sensual an experience as the sensation when my lover came up behind and slipped his arms around me in a hug. I was in bliss! On my front I had the warmth of the sun, and on my back the loving touch of his chest, and the strength of his encircling arms. The moment was so wonderful, that we we kissed, other greeting the glorious day in front of us.

Birds were hopping from treetop to treetop pecking at nuts and seeds. Seagulls and pelicans were gliding over the beach with complete freedom, squawking joyfully. The wind blew the palm fronds one way, then another, creating a moving carpet of green all along the shore. I felt so connected to nature, and really centered and fulfilled in my heart.

Because I took those 10-15 minutes to connect with nature before jumping into work, my whole day was more productive and much less stressful.

What happens to you when you take time to connect with nature? Have you taken a moment lately to see the beauty around you? Are there ways you can work in just a few minutes a day to slow down and ‘smell the flowers’ – maybe even the real ones?

Blessings,

Fun & Facts on Orgasm

Mary Roach is the author of Bonk, a wander through comtemporary sex research, full of fascinating tidbits & anecdotes about human sexuality.  Here is an engaging, funny talk she gave at TED about what she found out about orgasms while researching the book.

By the way, if you have never heard of the TED Conference, it is an annual gathering where speakers are invited to present for less than 20 minutes on their discoveries, thoughts, and art.  It is a gathering of the most remarkable thinkers, artists, and scientists on the planet.  And all the presentations are available online at the website.  Go visit!  You will be amazed, entertained, and uplifted.

David Deida on Orgasm

For Him:

“Sex can be a time of total dissolution in love. Sex can bathe every cell in your body with light, bliss, and life force. Sex can be an ecstatic practice of open-hearted communion and surrender to infinity. Or, sex can be 10 or 20 minutes of genital stimulation ending in a spasm of biological relief.”

A New Good Year

A new year has begun, and already we are inundated with messages about making resolutions to ‘fix’ our failings. I believe we serve our greatest potential better when we come from the positive instead of the negative. Read more

How Can These Uncertain Times Help Us Connect with the Divine?

Today I received a phone call from a friend who is feeling sad and discouraged about life. I checked in with myself and I realized that it is more challenging to stay focused on the positive even for me .

Passionate Lovemaking to Welcome the Spring

The best way I know to celebrate the coming of the Spring Season is Tantric Lovemaking.

Nature is preparing to come out of hibernation and to sprout billions of flowers and leaves. Our human heart wants to sprout, too. It wants to give life to a new, fresher, deeper love. We long to celebrate life’s infinite abundance and joyous expression with our human nature, giving spring a brighter color. Read more
