What do the holidays mean for you?

By Susan Weiss Berry | December 25, 2018

For me, it’s a reflective time of the year. Lots of long walks. And writing. And listening. And feeling. Rather than judge myself for what I didn’t do, I allow myself to dream into the New Year. Imagine as clearly as I can, What I want to fill up with next year– What will bring…

Stop Thinking and Just Make a Move…

By Susan Weiss Berry | July 7, 2018

I spotted this “You Can” note one day while walking around NYC.         Most probably I was out walking because I couldn’t get moving on what I needed to do: Write my Newsletter. Go to the grocery store. Finish/Start a painting. Procrastination/avoidance/resistance are universal phenomenons. And yet, when you’re caught up in…

When I first meet with Evolving Eaters and we talk about their previous experiences with Mindful Eating, I realize, they have NOT been practicing Mindful Eating… …they’ve been practicing Fear Mind Eating.

The Very First Painting

By Susan Weiss Berry | January 23, 2018

This was my very first painting called, “That’s Quite a Story.” It was a moment of facing my fear. I had no idea what I was doing. I grabbed a piece of Xerox paper, bubble wrap, an old credit card (had no brushes), my few containers of craft paint– and–wildly smeared, played, pressed, dripped. I…
