What I did not know coming into the program was how incredibly supported I would be every day... There are other people to connect with, and a lot of contact from Grace. I could not have imagined this. This daily, constant support as a part of the program is amazing. If I had realized the support, I would have felt resolved with any question of price or time. It’s a great comfort to know this program supports my lifestyle. I could never have seen it coming. Thank you. ~ Eating Peace Experience 2020

Eating Can Be Joyful and No Big Deal

No matter how far down the road of suffering you’ve gone, or for how many years you’ve been struggling and upset with eating or your weight….there’s a place for you at this table of life.  Join us in Eating Peace Experience. 

Not another diet, exercise and willpower program, or complicated psychological analysis of compulsions. This program supports people who are tired of the pain of *thinking* about eating, food and their weight to shift how they think and feel, and act, when it comes to eating, food and their weight. 

This is possible for anyone who is willing to shift and question their belief systems. You don’t have to know how….you only need to be willing to try. 

New Program Beings: October 19, 2020 - March 18, 2021

You can join from anywhere in the world, and do this program from the privacy of your own home.  You will learn foundational practices for eating peace on key topics to deprogram stressful belief systems and rebuild your self-love, understanding and confidence around eating and your body image.

Eating Peace Experience is a robust, thorough immersion in identifying and deleting the beliefs that drive off-balance and disordered eating, and dissolving them through self-inquiry and peaceful thinking.

Eating Peace Experience is a unique program of its kind that focuses on the original energy, belief or birth of a craving, or a stressful thought about the body, food or eating.

We apply inquiry and practices in shifting upsetting mental habits using The Work of Byron Katie, mindful awareness and compassion, to end the obsessive thinking or behaving with food.

We find when we address the stressful thinking, and can observe with an open mind, we get to face the thoughts that declare “I’m ugly” or “I must eat” or “I can’t lose weight” or “this is urgent” (including the urge to eat immediately). When we see it and investigate, and understand it, it can fade away.

We don’t have to believe everything we think. 

Eating Peace Experience is a PROCESS. It is a practice in transformation. We orient ourselves towards kindness, gentleness, safety and forgiveness when it comes to what we’ve done and felt with food (and with our thinking about life)! You can find freedom from obsessive eating quickly. 

Solutions to address eating problems have existed for decades. Most of the solutions involve finding the right diet, and a priority on weight loss. The focus is on grabbing the bull by the horns, growing your willpower and discipline, and concentrating your efforts on tackling this “problem” full out.

Often there are menus, shopping lists,  measurements for portion sizes, and a concentration on measuring, data, weighing and memorizing what you’re allowed or not allowed to eat.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Controlling the intake of food, and examining the contents of the food itself, is a fascinating and amazing study.

But most of us are experts at nutrition and dieting! And yet, still tortured by eating….we know what “should” or “shouldn’t” be eaten, but we find the cravings and emotional experience overwhelming.

Eating peace, I never found, focuses on the diet.

Diets generally live in the realm of control and adding knowledge and documentation to each day, each meal, and each bite. It meant I could not be trusted to eat freely, so I needed structure and rules.

And it seemed like I couldn’t trust myself! I never knew what would happen if I walked into a room with a table covered with food! All hell could break loose! I felt so powerless! 

However, treating myself like someone who needed shackles and a leg bracelet that would beep if I went into a fast food joint was so sad, and something seemed off about it. Was this really the solution? Was I really simply unable to cope in certain situations without eating? Is the only solution to powerlessness to tighten up the control?

Was it true that if I EVER took one bite of sugar, I’d keep eating from one end of town to the other, inhaling all the sugar in sight? Was it true that certain foods would forever freak me out? Was it really true I was unable to trust I could be in a room with loads of delicious food without obsessing about it, wanting it, and consuming it against my best interest?

The Eating Peace Experience is a program of transformation, awareness and deep practice in self-inquiry, so that we can access our true balanced relationship with eating. We move step-by-step through common stressful thoughts that cause reactive eating.

It is your privilege and birthright to be in the world at a natural, right-sized body, freely enjoying the taste of food and not fearing it. In the Eating Peace Experience, we’re lightening our thoughts and hearts, so our bodies and relationship with food follows.

You can do this, with the tools we use. It doesn’t matter if you’ve felt mild concern with food and eating, and a constant need to lose ten pounds, or an intense rigidity around maintaining a thin physique…..

…..or if you’ve felt completely insane when it comes to food, like I did.

I once saw a video somewhere long ago, where one person I admired in the art scene was in a green room with others for a little pre-show fun and conversation, all being video recorded. There was something sweet on a large plate–either cupcakes or special cakes with elaborate designs, apparently expensive desserts shared with this group of entertainers.

One young man saw the plate and proceeded to ask the others in the room who wanted to save one for later, because he needed to do something with the plate so he wouldn’t start consuming it with a vengeance. People looked at him curiously, or made little jokes knowingly. Some took a treat and placed it near them. He asked one more time “does everyone have a cake who wants one?!”

Then, he reached beneath a cabinet in the room, took out some kind of cleaning fluid, and sprayed the entire plate of the remaining beautiful treats with poisonous cleaning fluid, used to clean bathrooms. “Now, I won’t eat them all later!” he exclaimed.

When I saw that video, it had been many years since I had binge-eaten, or obsessed about plates of food like they were the enemy, and something to “fight” or wrestle with. But I still remembered the torture of feeling like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde when it came to eating. I understood what that young man was doing when he sprayed the beautiful cakes with cleaning fluid.

I also did NOT want to live like that, ever again.

Violence, counting, control and willpower is often the only thing we consider will ultimately work, when we’ve been suffering with food.

But there is another way.

It requires energy and “work”, but it’s an investigative work, not a laboring drudgery work or a forceful work, as so often offered in solutions to eating woes. We question our conditioned responses to life, to food, to eating, to our thoughts about ourselves.

Our Eating Peace Method is a path is to regain power, instead of feeling powerless when it comes to food. To work with our fear in a way that brings true safety and self-respect. And to be with emptiness or boredom by discovering satisfaction, fulfillment and joy.

It’s a method of permanent healing and change through un-training, un-doing, un-conditioning yourself.

process or method or experience is a series of steps and actions taken that add, enhance, shed light, offer discovery, and give you clear support for ending the imbalanced and agonizing experience you’ve had with eating.

Eating Peace is really a way of life. It’s a practice of uncovering hidden agendas, hidden fears, and the places we feel conflicted.

It becomes easy to simply enjoy food, whatever kinds of food you eat or don’t eat. Acceptance and open hands becomes the approach, not defending and closed fists.

Eating Peace is a live program where we rediscover our innate ability for sanity and freedom when it comes to eating–we were born with this ability to eat in balance.

If you’re ready to foster and grow true eating peace (and body peace) through thinking peace, while avoiding diets, drudgery, shame and willpower…..here’s how we’ll get you there.

New Program Begins: October 19, 2020

Frequently asked questions:

How much time will this take?

First, it may be helpful to consider how much time your eating and relationship to food and your body has taken? I spent hours with my head thinking about food, acquiring food, eating food, and hating myself.  We have simple exercises you’ll be engaged with daily. 

Every two weeks, a pre-recorded module is released--you decide when to watch it.

We have 2 virtual meetings per week: both for Q&A and coaching in self-inquiry (the primary tool is The Work of Byron Katie). Each meeting is approx 60 minutes. These are recorded and many participants listen to the recorded session as soon as they can instead of attending live.

Something is offered in the way of support all week for your eating peace, plus support forums for sharing.

When will I stop eating or change the way I eat?

You will intend lovingly to observe yourself and learn with the deepest kindness you can find within, as your peaceful approach. You will immediately begin to challenge your old stories. Eating your true way is not eating out of control, panic, rage, rebellion or self-hatred.

Some people stop their extreme behaviors within a week or so, some take it more step-by-step over the weeks they’re in the program, some make big headway in transforming their experience to peace and then plateau awhile, then make a big jump to new awareness again.

Can I participate from Europe or in another time zone? When are the live calls?

You can participate from anywhere. We meet on zoom. You can check your timezone here to see when we meet in your local time. Our live calls are scheduled for 11:00am Pacific Time Monday and Friday.

Praise for Eating Peace Online:

I like this format a lot, the presentation, which I like to watch and hear via the recording so I can pause it. And then the interactive work on live calls. Also, this particular subject, with its emphasis on feelings, seems to be particularly “opening” for me. With gratitude! 

Thank you Grace! The format was great. I enjoyed hearing the beautiful ways that people wrote their own responses. I also like how you summed up the techniques we already have been given at the end… it makes me feel more organized and less confused. 

In this program, I never lost interest, there was never anything that did not feel like it didn’t apply to me in some way. Some things really stuck for me, like the Stop/Go dialogue and the emphasis on using imagination – who would I be? I SO appreciate this topic – this is so huge for me and I’m so glad you gave this class. I would take the entire program again!

Grace is like the fairy godmother who is objectively and lovingly looking at what’s going on in behavior, thoughts and feelings. The content of the class felt comprehensive and well thought out. I would certainly recommend the course. Thank you.

Thank you for the wonderful writing and videos. I had a big breakthrough that came after watching a few of your videos again. I’ve realized that what’s been happening for me since the EPP course ended is that my inner mentor has been coming forward more and is now ready to be fully in charge….It’s been powerful for me to see that this is ME and not an external character….It’s so clear now. I feel an indescribable peace.

Grace, you have a REMARKABLE ability to embrace anything that comes into our Work, and weave it in. I love your light-hearted but serious style, and that you can tell your own stories. Looking back at what I wanted to get out of the program, I can say that I got a lot more than I imagined. Thanks, so much.

My stressful thinking went like this, and you might relate:  

*My body is disgusting *I can’t succeed in eating the right amount *I feel more attractive if I’m thin, I hate being fat *I feel empty, and I can fill the hole with food *I can’t handle hunger, fullness, feelings, being seen by others, figuring this out *eating normally is impossible *cravings are maddening and insanely hard to control *I don’t know what to eat *something terrible is going to happen (and I’ll break my diet, or binge) *none of this matters anyway–I can’t win, I can’t be happy, I may as well enjoy food  

What I know now is that anyone can end the fight, struggle, argument or stress involved with eating, food, or body….It’s your birthright to live peacefully with the experience and joy of eating.  

Eating was not created to hurt.

If you don’t feel peaceful with eating, then likely somewhere in your life, like me you began to believe painful thoughts about thinness, fatness, weight, attractiveness, joy, love, foods, connection and eating.

There is a way to enter into the experience of peaceful eating, permanently.  

How do I know?  

Because it happened for me.  

I was a binge-eater, bulimic for a decade (binge-eating and vomiting or over-exercising), borderline-anorexic for several years, and constantly tortured by violent thoughts about food, weight, and eating. I weighed too much, then too little, yo-yo’d up and down, and hated my body. I felt nervous around large quantities of food. I said things like “I can’t keep x in my house!!” because I’d think about it obsessively until I ate it.  

But it’s over now.  

Food can be wherever it is, including covering a huge buffet table in my presence, and it doesn’t scare me or create anger or make me say things like “careful! stay in control!”  

That kind of unrest can be over for you, too.  

I used to isolate, stay home, avoid gatherings with large amounts of food, go to gatherings with food just to eat it instead of pay any attention to people. I felt lost, lonely, terrified and thought I was going crazy.  

I spent hundreds of dollars on binge food. I drove into fast-food restaurants for meals one after the other trying to act “normal” to the employee working behind the counter instead of desperate and almost in tears.  

I went to Overeaters Anonymous, weight watchers, therapy, in-patient treatment for eating disorders at Porter Memorial Hospital in Denver, completed Living Binge Free program, People House, more therapy, Beyond Dieting program, Course in Miracles, Alcoholics Anonymous, est, Context Trainings and group therapy.  

All of these helped a little, my eating slowed in its excessiveness, but nothing cured my compulsive thinking.  

And then, between a very powerful group therapy program and learning The Work of Byron Katie, I found a lightness and freedom from eating wars I always dreamed of but never thought possible.  

This approach to Eating Peace gathers three vital and important principles together, and lives out of them:  

Eating (or any activity and consuming) is a part of the flow of in and out, up and down, of life….and everyone can live eating peacefully with that flow, like the tides going in and out…..everyone. Without any upsetting fluctuation in weight. 

You are not a special case that can’t be cured, no matter how long you’ve been suffering with this problem.

Eating, food, and body image has grown to have more importance in your world than it should because of your perceptions and unconscious, limiting, very stressed mental activity. You can find out what you need instead of food or eating. You’ll learn what you need to say “no” to in your life, and most importantly, you’ll question the stressful lies you’ve been believing that drive off-balance eating. 

Eating that isn’t peaceful is a deep, internal, often unconscious invitation to growth and expansion, a deep desire to return to balance. Instead of placing focus on your eating and body, you may long for more in other completely different areas of your life. It may not be as difficult as you think.

You don’t have to figure out all your feelings, resolve dilemmas, or feel good all the time. (You won’t). But you can stop overeating or eating or starving obsessively or thinking about food or your weight….and bring your focus to where else you don’t feel free, and question your mind.  

The Eating Peace Experience approach dives into changing at a profoundly deep level, so you actually become free and find a balanced weight without any dieting. We work in the realm of mindfulness, feelings, questioning our old beliefs, and living in freedom–we address our eating obsessions at the root level.  

You do not have to be controlled, or to follow, the directives of your unquestioned thoughts. You can end the cycle of insanity. Your life includes the possibility of joyful, balanced eating.  

It is possible to end your obsession and concern with food, forever.  

I’m living proof. So are other people who have done this work.  

No control or rigid plans are necessary. (Although you will learn how to review, refine and clarify your own eating and continue to stick with peace).  

Eating Peace Experience Online Program: Along with the pre-recorded video presentations each week for you to follow along, we have a Q&A and a smorgasbord of ways to stay connected. Come and go as you wish and need. You can’t do it wrong. Your inquiry leads to peace. Eating Peace.

What people say about eating peace experience online

"“This class has been huge for me since I was so new to Byron Katie's Work. My sense of peace around food is wonderful and I thank you deeply for helping me find it.”


"Thank you so very much for your help in the wonderful program you gave. You gave me much to think about, and I can feel a sense of peace that I can’t remember the last time I felt. Thank you, thank you.”  ~ Eating Peace Process 2018




“The slides, the presentation, the fact that I could watch whenever I was able made it possible for me to participate from Australia. When I questioned ”I need to eat” one day at night, I suddenly remembered The Work. I turned it around “I don’t need to eat.” I couldn’t believe it worked. I didn’t eat, for the first time in years. ~ Eating Peace Process 2018




“I had an amazing night. Woke up around 2.30 and worked ‘I need to control my eating’. I clearly saw that fears are what drive the eating. It feels like I cracked the code! So simple. I've done some work on my eating but not at this depth! Thank you so much." ~ A.A. Eating Peace Basics 2017




"What I did not know coming into the program was how incredibly supported I would be every day. I can be quiet, I can be loud, whether I reach out or not, I am supported. There is something every day. There are other people to connect with, and a lot of contact from Grace. I could not have imagined this. This daily, constant support as a part of the program is amazing. If I had realized the support, I would have felt resolved with any question of price or time. My experience was that Grace was clear, focused and directed. It’s a great comfort to know this program supports my lifestyle. I could never have seen it coming. Thank you. ~ J.O.
