“The need for meaningful symbols, beliefs, stories, and rituals by which to organize our lives and understand our purpose has not disappeared. In fact, we are starving for them.”
Michelle M. Lelwica, The Religion of Thinness: Satisfying the Spiritual Hungers Behind Women's Obsession with Food and Weight

“Myths are not simply stories we believe in, they are stories we dwell in. We grow up surrounded by them, but we are often unaware of their power.”
Michelle M. Lelwica, The Religion of Thinness: Satisfying the Spiritual Hungers Behind Women's Obsession with Food and Weight

“I find meaning in my effort to use the various experiences I have in life—whether good or bad, stressful or soothing, predictable or surprising, or something in between—as opportunities to wake up, to open and expand my heart, and to be present to my life and the lives of others in ways that bring peace and healing.”
Michelle M. Lelwica, The Religion of Thinness: Satisfying the Spiritual Hungers Behind Women's Obsession with Food and Weight
