Overview

When we eat, can we feed the soul as well as the body? Can a diet have an impact on spirituality? Spiritual Nutrition empowers readers to develop personal diets that are appropriate to their lifestyles and spiritual practices. Drawing on 14 years of clinical experience and research, Dr. Gabriel Cousens discusses nutritional issues that can help answer these questions, including raw vs. cooked food; high vs. low protein; the concepts of assimilation and fasting; alkaline--acid balance; attitudes about food; nutrients, energy, and structure building.

In addition, Cousens shares his new dietary system of "spiritual nutrition" that is based on the relationship that the color of the food has to corresponding colors of the human chakra system, hence, the "rainbow diet." For true nourishment, he strongly promotes the connection of diet to meditation, fellowship, wisdom, and love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[This book] will become a standard for ages to come, against which all other books will be measured and put into perspective of relative importance. The author leads us beyond the limited precepts of nutrition into the realms of Divinity."
—From the Preface by Viktoras Kulvinskas

"...arguably the best book on diet from both a health and a spiritual point of view ever to see print."
Meditation Magazine

"Dr. Gabriel Cousens is a true Yogi. This book is a cosmic how-to book that focuses on methods to spiritualize the physical body, thus creating a vehicle for Enlightenment, here and now."
—Sharon Gannon

"This is a stunning advance over similar books in the field. It opens up the real possibility that nutrition has finally entered a new age. Better yet, this effort draws from both the best and most recent science and the eternal roots of esoterica, a full meal for the most critical reader."
—Lee Sannella

"...probably the most detailed description ever written of the role of diet and Kundalini in the transformation of body, mind, and spirit."
—Barbara Marx Hubbard

    It's tough to describe this book. I instantly connected with Dr.

    It's tough to describe this book. I instantly connected with Dr. Cousen's because of a mutual interest in the Siddha Yoga path, but I quickly realized I was in for a long journey through a vast realm of experience that went way beyond my own. Although Dr. Cousen's main thesis revolves around the benefits of a largely raw vegan diet, he covers nearly every spiritual and energetic system out there, and it's truly captivating. There are times where you just have to put down the book because of it's "heaviness" but I'm choosing to buy it because I think it will be timeless resource for me, and anyone else interested in food as part of one's spiritual evolution.
