This week I spoke with the amazing Dr. Anita Johnston. We spoke about using metaphors with food to help us decode what things we are really “hungry” for. When we can decode what our cravings are telling us about our life we can learn so much valuable information that we can use to transform our relationship with food and ourselves. We discuss the meaning of soul hunger and give you lots of good resources to start this work on your own. We touch on Waldorf education and the work of Rudolf Steiner and how he inspired her work (which is especially exciting for me as I am a teacher at a Waldorf school)
