My book is now available on Amazon. If you're ready to stop the dieting madness and embrace a solution that lasts, read on. Today’s diet and exercise schemes continue to fail us, but rather than dig deeper for real solutions, we seem content to pursue the next quick fix. The multi-billion dollar weight-loss industry preys on our food and weight obsessions, fueling eating disorders in the process. It’s Time to EAT challenges the status quo, addressing the core issues underlying disordered eating and serving up answers that can change your life.Part memoir, part self-help guide, this book examines not only what drives some to the extremes of obesity and anorexia or bulimia, but also why more and more people are latching on to unsustainable raw, gluten-free, Paleo and other insane diet fads. Through candid personal insights, researched scientific theories, and spiritual practices, author and integrative psychotherapist Inge Sengelmann, LCSW, SEP, RYT-500, presents a clearer picture of what a healthy relationship with food, body, and self looks like and provides a road map to experience the freedom for yourself. As you enter a process of conscious embodiment, you will regulate your eating habits on a neurophysiological level. This unification of mind and body renews you from the inside out, offering a life-changing solution that lasts.
Physical Embodiment through somatic awareness, yoga postures, breathing techniques, as well as mindful and expressive movement. These techniques can help you feel good in your body and at home in your own skin, as well as enhance your health and overall wellness.
Emotional and Mental Embodiment through embodiment-based therapies designed to observe, understand and calm the mind and the emotions to promote wise responses to life challenges. I practice the third-wave trauma treatment of Somatic Experiencing, a bottoms-up limbic-calming approach grounded in an understanding of the polyvagal theory of the autonomic nervous system. I also am trained intensively in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a third-wave cognitive-behavioral therapy that seeks to bridge the divide between reason and emotion and teaches skills for effective living. Further, I take into account the yogic model of the mind, principles of embodied cognition and affective neuroscience, and simple yet effective self-inquiry processes to aid awareness.
Spiritual Embodiment to integrate the transcendent with the mundane and allow your spiritual endeavors to help you reach your highest potential as a human being. If you want to be free in the world and not have to remove yourself from the world in order to achieve lofty spiritual goals, this approach may be for you. Learn how your body is the gateway to practical spirituality, and how all the powers inherent in the universe reside within you. As Tantric Hatha Yoga teacher, I can train you in meditation techniques designed to harness your lifeforce and enable you to connect to the light in your soul so you can shine as your best self.
Eating, Attachment & Somatic Education (EASE)™ is the bridge between traditional and body-oriented psychotherapy in the treatment of eating disorders. This training expands current models of treatment beyond talk by highlighting the crucial role of attachment, the body, and the neurobiological processes that serve as both barriers to recovery and untapped healing resources for those who are struggling.
