Fasting

Leave a comment

We often think of fasting as “giving up” those special nourishments we enjoy such as chocolate or a latte. We also may decide to eat simply or to try a food cleanse.

Fasting can also be a way to cleanse us from the distractions, busyness, and activities that feed our daily life. These “foods” may provide short term nourishment yet they can prevent us from an even deeper awareness and nourishment.
