Product description


Applies the 2,500-year-old principles of Zen Buddhism to the modern struggle with the vicious cycle of dieting and regaining weight by teaching readers how to find freedom from eating problems and the desires that trigger cravings.

From the Author

The Buddha's nourishment plan for the heart
The Four Noble Truths, discovered by the Buddha more than 2,500 years ago, are a specific set of instructions to help people find peace and satisfaction within themselves. He outlined the way to accomplish this by instructing people to follow certain recipes. But these recipes have nothing to do with food. They focus on nourishing the heart - because that kind of nourishment is what lasts and what makes us feel full. This book offers a step by step guide to freedom from the tyranny of desires that keep us searching for satisfaction in places where it can't be found. By practicing these recipes, you can cultivate a deep sense of happiness that can't be found elsewhere. It's priceless and something no one can take away from you. Lasting nourishment comes from intimacy with yourself and with all experiences - including our sorrows as well as our joys. The Buddha said, "Freedom is just as available to you as it is to me. Look within." So please follow these 2,500 ! year old recipes that nourish your heart and enjoy the peace and fullness they offer to you. I wish you well on this journey.
