|Geneen Roth. Anne Lamott, intro.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||224 / 2019|
After years of teaching retreats and workshops on weight, money, and other obsessions, the author of Women, Food and God realized that there was a connection that held her students captive in their unhappiness. With humor, compassion, and dead-on insight, Geneen Roth takes a deep dive into what lies behind our self-criticism, whether it is about the size of our thighs, the expression of our thoughts, or the shape of our ambitions. Here Roth makes the case for stopping the search to fix ourselves by realizing that on the other side of the "Me Project" is spaciousness, peace, and the capacity to reclaim one's power and joy.
