‘All sorrows are less with bread,’ wrote Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote. We know the importance of food in terms of survival, in terms of deep, basic connection to another human being, and we are beginning to discern better paths in terms of health. Our relationship with food is primal and lifelong, and can also be a lifelong challenge.


In this episode, Caer Hallundbaek explores the fascinating topic of food and spirituality with Mary Lane – a professional chef of 30 years, and the author of ‘Divine Nourishment: A Woman's Sacred Journey with Food.’ Topics in this hour include: What nourishment is, according to Lane; what form it takes in our culture today; her awakening and deepening of understanding of the connection between food and nourishment; her book, Divine Nourishment, and how it offers ‘support in reclaiming lost and rejected aspects of ourselves'; Lane's own journey with food; her career as restaurant owner, private chef, caterer of numerous health and spiritual retreats; living and eating seasonally as a road-map to physical and spiritual health; the need for balance; how we can learn to recognize our authentic self through the eyes of nature;  Carole's reading from Dear Little One: Thoughts to My Child in an Uncertain World, in recognition of the anniversary of 9/11; applying daily use of healthy organic seasonal foods, recipes, tonics, practices, and cleanses that are nourishing and appropriate for alignment with the seasonal journey; how Lane's work focuses on women and the Divine Feminine; this week's Godspeed Tip for your Spiritual Tool Belt; and more.
