Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone, Happy New Year! 

I hope everyone experienced an especially joyous and blessed holiday season. 

One of my New Year intentions is to share with all of you more often, so I’ll be writing again soon to tell you about some amazing opportunities and events I’ll be offering in 2012  – including a Miracle Journey to Peru.

But first I have something exciting to offer to you that can be taken advantage of immediately…

With the holiday season behind us, there is a lot of news circulating about how many people are buying eReaders like the Nook, the e-ink Kindle, the iPad, and the new Kindle Fire. I was shocked when I saw the numbers. I recently read that over 1 million Kindles alone are being sold every week in the US, and that’s not even including iPads and iPhones with Kindle apps! This means that lots of people, just like you, are going to be on the lookout for great books to read on their new devices.

It looks like I may be one of the few people on the planet who doesn’t own a Nook or Kindle now. I admit, though, that I have joined the ranks of those who are testing the eBook waters – via a favorite new addition to my life, the iPhone 4S. Not minutes after I turned it on for the first time, I added the first two titles to it’s empty iBooks library shelf – my own! – Soul-Full Eating and my newest release, Food: A Love Story. I love being able to carry them around with me in such a compact way.

So in order to allow as many people as possible access to my new book, Food: A Love Story with their e-readers, I’ve just made it available for a limited time at just $2.99. It will soon be listed at $9.99, but it’s my goal to inspire and liberate as many people as possible, as early on in the new year as I can, so take advantage of this offer yourself and then please do share this offer with your friends and loved ones.

Food: A Love Story

by Maureen Whitehouse by Axiom Publishing
Kindle Edition ~ Release Date: 2010-04-06
List Price: $2.99

In case you are not yet familiar with the book, Food: a Love Storyis just that, a love story. One which will give the countless millions who are typically focused on New Year’s diet resolutions and post-holiday weight loss something infinitely more satisfying to chew on than a bland and dissatisfying diet plan.

It is written as a parable, much like Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist, but it focuses on food and its impact on our relationships and everyday lives.
It’s the story of Kate, a girl who seeks help for her yo-yo dieting and weight gain-definitely looking for more than just another carb-counting quick fix. She’s tired of both herself and an endless parade of nutrition and fitness advice, and doubts that any diet can help her overcome her compulsive eating
habits to find the perfect weight.
The seemingly ordinary “life coach” who agrees to take Kate on as a client, has more than Kate’s waistline in mind. This unconventional approach is a complete overhaul of body, mind, and soul, causing Kate to question some of her most cherished beliefs, and let go of past regrets along with mealtime baggage. As Kate’s mentor guides her into unknown territory, they uncover an aspect of eating Kate had long ago forgotten-joy.
Throwing all rules and restrictions out the window, Kate is led by one simple principle, “Eat with love, what’s grown with love, prepared with love and served with love.” A warm-hearted and fiercely direct dialogue ensues, as the two women clear Kate’s kitchen, assess her wardrobe and uncover a brilliantly confident woman that Kate never realized was hiding under her own skin.
Enjoy your first hours and days of 2012. What a wonderful year we can make this be! I look forward to sharing much joy, creativity, adventure and miracles with you in the coming months.

Maureen Whitehouse

 
Abundant Blessings,
Maureen

Soul-Full Eating:

A (Delicious!) Path To Higher Consciousness

There are so many obvious ways that we can miss the opportunity to live a supremely fulfilling life. But what surprises most people is that eating offers an aspect of satisfaction which is often overlooked… that is, choosing foods which resonate with your Soul!

Here’s the key:

Eat with love what’s grown with love,
prepared with love, and served with love.

It’s one based on the love of food that anyone–no matter what your faith, religion or personal philosophy–can follow.

  • Become aware of simple, yet dynamic changes you can make in the way you select, prepare and eat food that will increase your vibrancy and personal energy.
  • Deepen your spiritual connection on a daily basis.

~Catherine Ann Johnston, Founder, The Body Positive.

“Read Soul-Full Eating and get active in your Soul’s purpose with every meal.”
~Peter Cervoni, Natural Foods Chef and Cooking Instructor

Maureen Whitehouse expansive knowledge in the field of nutrition grew from the demand to maintain a “picture perfect” image as an international model and commercial actress. This lead to decades of experiences traversing the globe voraciously studying the world’s nutritional and spiritual traditions.

Done with Dieting: 30 Days of Soul-Full Eating

When Kate seeks help for her yo-yo dieting and weight gain, she’s looking for more than just another carb counting quick fix. Tired of both herself and an endless parade of nutrition and fitness advice, Kate doubts that any diet can help her overcome her compulsive eating habits to find the perfect weight.

But the seemingly ordinary “life coach” who agrees to take Kate on as a client, has more than Kate’s waistline in mind. This unconventional diet is a complete overhaul of body, mind, and soul, causing Kate to question some of her most cherished beliefs, and let go of past regrets along with mealtime baggage. As Kate’s mentor guides her into unknown territory, they uncover an aspect of eating Kate had long ago forgotten: joy. Throwing all rules and restrictions out the window, Kate is led by one simple principle, “Eat with love what’s grown with love, prepared with love and served with love.”

A warm-hearted and fiercely direct dialogue ensues, as the two women clear Kate’s kitchen, asses her wardrobe and uncover a brilliantly confident woman that Kate never realized was hiding under her own skin.

Join Kate on her journey from “I’m not” to “I am!” by receiving one installment of the story each morning for 30 days, accompanied by daily exercises and meditations to integrate Kate’s discoveries into your own life. Accompanied by Kate, the path to health and radiance has never been more engaging or appealing.

Sign up now, and you’ll receive a month of teleconferences with Maureen, plus unlimited access to her via email, Free!

You may sympathize with Kate if you’ve ever…

  • Quit a diet that you swore you’d stick to, feeling defeated and self-loathing.
  • Triumphantly reached your dieting goals, only to yo-yo back to your original weight, while frantically trying to control your fluctuating waistline.
  • Felt frustrated and confused by the hundreds of diet “plans” and “experts” all with their own, often-contradictory methods of achieving the perfect body.
  • Grown sick of listening to other people tell you how you should eat, exercise and look.

What if you could end all of your struggles with food and stop dieting forever?
You can!

Most traditional diets rely on pre-planned meals, regimented lists of “shoulds” and “shoudln’ts”, and carb, fat and calorie counting—methods which only create more guilt and mealtime stress, and often causing dieters to quit altogether or quickly bounce back to their original weight.

Kate’s Awakening, by contrast, tackles mealtime and dressing room woes at their very source—the deep-rooted feelings of guilt and self-loathing that most of us associate with those experiences—and which keep us from trusting ourselves to decide when, what, and how much we should eat.

Over the course of this 30-Day email program, you’ll learn to trust yourself to make healthy, wholesome decisions about food. You’ll learn how to indulge without guilt, to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, and to eat—and live—in a way that leaves you feeling satisfied, and not aching for more.

Expect your newfound confidence and appreciation to expand into the rest of your daily experience—get ready to love your life!

It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love,
are so entwined that we cannot think of one without the other.
~ M.F.K. Fisher

A Message About Done with Dieting from Maureen:
At first, my motivation to become supremely knowledgeable about nutrition and wellness was entirely self-serving and superficial. As an international model, I wanted to be “picture perfect” and “marketable,” so I could be successful and make a living. But as I watched friends and co-workers turn towards drugs or develop eating disorders, I realized that my interest in full-body wellness and spirituality had helped me not only maintain a desirable physique, but also stay sane in an often crazy and self-destructive industry.

Over the course of a quarter decade, I read literally hundreds of books, attended lectures, workshops and retreats by every known (and unknown) wellness authority of the day. As time passed and I thankfully matured, I realized that there is no “expert” and no one can be anyone else’s “diet authority.”

No matter how learned, how many degrees or titles someone may have after their name, the person who is most expert about you, is you!

In fact, the more I came to know myself, the more evident it became to me how ludicrous it is that any expert should be given the authority to tell me, or any one, what precisely I should eat, at any given time of the day!

I am not here to tell you that this food is good and this food is bad. It’s time to rise above all of that, and allow you to pay attention to your own body and your own needs, to give you the space to decide what is right for you, right now.

Despite a world littered with fast food restaurants and seductive junk food commercials promising ultimate satisfaction there are people who are able to stay thin and healthy and can negotiate their way through the synthetic food jungle every day. And even quite peacefully and consciously indulge from time to time. How?
They are focused on self-love, and have learned what satisfies their own needs, rather than endlessly filling a void and riding the cycle of self-guilt.

Have you ever watched a small child eat? They eat what they want when they want it, and stop as soon as they are full. They never binge or intentionally starve themselves, or feel guilt for not eating the “right” amounts of the “right” foods.

That is, until the child begins school, where there are allotted times for eating, and using the bathroom, and playing, and paying attention. At dinnertime, adults tell her that she has to either finish everything on her plate or stop eating so much of certain foods. As the child grows older, she loses touch with what her body needs, instead relying on experts to tell her what will make her feel and look “perfect.” She might overindulge to ease emotional pain, or restrict herself to feel more in control of her life and image. Soon, mealtime becomes a complicated mess of “shoulds,” “don’ts” and “wants.” Wouldn’t it be nice to return to those childhood eating habits, when you just ate whatever you liked, whenever you felt hungry, with no guilt?

In this 30-day “non-diet” program, you’ll purge yourself of mealtime baggage, and learn to trust yourself to make healthy, wholesome decisions about food. You’ll learn how to indulge without guilt, to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, and to eat—and live—in a way that leaves you feeling satisfied, and not aching for more.

Every human has two things in common,
1. We all Eat.
2. We all feel a certain, albeit often undeniable pang of emptiness that whispers, “there must be something more than this.”

Sure we can quiet that voice, from time to time, just like our body’s hunger for food, making it subside by burying it under layers of material consumption. But the only time that any of us are ever truly, deeply full, contented and satisfied is when we feel deeply loved.

That void is the voice of your Soul calling you to live your own life fully and freely, led by a deeply fulfilling interior motivation that is aligned with self-love and awareness. A life guided by, infused with, and impassioned by love.

Wouldn’t you much rather learn to love yourself than temporarily trim your waistline by mastering another diet, only to find yourself yo-yo right back to where you were before you started it?

Meal Prayers and Inspirations from Around the World, by Maureen Whitehouse

A companion book to Soul-Full Eating

For millennia, humankind has expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the life-sustaining nourishment of food through the rituals of prayer, meditation and simple quiet moments of contemplation.

The many expressions of gratitude that are contained in this book have evolved over time. They come from all corners of the earth, perhaps initially sung or spoken by candle light in the inner sanctums of monasteries, around massive feast-laden tables, or possibly over meager meals eaten by the fireside under the moon and stars. They’ve been offered not only as thanks for what is visible in the form of food, but for the invisible, immeasurable elements–the life sustaining miracle inherent in breaking bread.

These prayers and petitions are complimented and further elevated by food inspired short stories and vignettes illustrating that mealtime is the perfect opportunity to bless, to acknowledge the miraculous in the mundane, and to realize we all are ultimately nourished by the same Source. This book is offered with the hope that you will find treasures within it and possibly feel inclined to share them and even hand them down for millennia to come. I hope it will be for you an inspired passageway that brings you closer and closer to the Divine inherent in all, until you find the doorway opened wide that ever beckons us to be consumed–to enter in and fall into the heart of God.

Just Sit There

Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
Just rest.

For your separation from God
Is the hardest work in this world.

Let me bring you trays of food
And something that you like to drink.

You can use my soft words
As a cushion
For your
Head.

~ Hafiz, Persian Poet (1320-1389)
