Finally – the book that tells the whole story about this thing we do three times a day: eat. FOOD YOGA shares in delicious prose both the spiritual and physical relevance of food in our lives, and how we can use it to heal ourselves and our planet. ‘Should be must-read for anybody who’s ever held a fork.”

FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul ™
by Paul Rodney Turner
Paul Rodney Turner (aka Priyavrata das) is the international director of Food for Life, the world’s largest plant-based food relief with projects in over 50 countries, has been conducting workshops on FOOD YOGA throughout the world. The workshops are based on his new book, FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul
FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul is a completely new approach to holistic living. Until now, books on healthy living and nutrition have focused on the mechanics of health and happiness, and in doing so, have promoted philosophies and plans that in one way or another have alienated vast numbers of people. As a result, despite volumes of literature and research there is no consensus on what diet or mode of living is best. What they have all failed to identify is one underlying truth that connects us all and from which all health plans can be reconciled and/or elevated to their ultimate stature. That truth is: our constitutional nature is spirit and we are all spiritually equal. Any healthy living program therefore needs to address the “nutritional” needs of body, mind and spirit.
Utilizing scientific facts and logical argument, Turner introduces the reader to higher concepts of self worth, whereupon the selfish ideals of impersonal consumerism are replaced with a philosophy of grateful, interdependent spirituality, where health and happiness, are not the exclusive domain of a chosen few, but are possible for everyone.
The book aims to encourage the reader to start making food part of their daily spiritual ritual. Turner has attempted to make the presentation as non-sectarian as possible, without losing the integrity of the message. The book covers a wide range of topics related to food with the aim of making people think more deeply about their food choices and how important food is to their spiritual development. The book leads the reader along a path of becoming more aware of the divine nature of food to the point where they are then introduced to what he calls, The FOOD OFFERING MEDITATION, which summarizes the lessons learned along the way and serves to put them in the right frame of mind to transform their eating into a spiritual experience.
The book is a result of teaching Food Yoga at vegetarian conferences around the world for the last 15 years. Based on the positive responses from his seminars, he feels strongly that the public is ready to embrace the new paradigm of FOOD YOGA and this book will provide the unbiased guidance they need.

I just finished reading your book! I loved, loved, loved it. Also, this is the first time that I actually read a book on the computer and since I have a nice comfy laptop it was great…I think that you are a great writer. You write in a clear manner. I did not get lost or drift away at any time.
