"A Must Read"

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 a must-read for anybody who’s ever held a fork.” 
– Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life and MAIN STREET VEGAN.

About the Book

Paul Rodney Turner (aka "The Food Yogi") 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 fantastic! I cannot believe how much you packed into that number of pages....everything from your personal story to various spiritual paths to USDA organics myth to Monsanto and more....I think this book will be a hit.

I didn't expect to like this book. I have already heard too many people using phrases like 'food yoga,' while their practical relationship with food isn't all that remarkable, and their understanding of what makes food 'spiritual' seems very superstitious. I'm happy to say, though, that this book is NOT like that! Paul leads us through a very rational and thorough exploration of what food really is, and presents us a very deep and vivid methodology for interacting with it in a truly yogic, spiritual way. I hope many people from all walks of life read it, for I'm sure that whoever does will benefit immensely.

WHAT IS A FOOD YOGI?

Food Yogis respect their own body, which they treat as a blessing or a “temple of God.” Indeed, they live their entire life in full awareness of their interdependence and interconnectedness to all things. Such a spiritual and all embracing perspective is the foundation of India’s Vedic culture of hospitality—a culture that is based on the principle of sama darshana[13] or spiritual equality.

The Food Yogi fully embraces a socially responsible and environmentally respectful lifestyle. This applies to your choice of food, clothing, cosmetics, cleaning materials and habitat. All should be chosen carefully so that the least amount of harm is inflicted upon your environment and other living things.This journey in raising consciousness begins with and ends with the tongue. Never underestimate the power of the plate or the power of the spoken word. What you put on your plate is as much a political statement as it is a mirror of who you really are. You can tell much about a person by what comes out of his mouth when he speaks and what he consumes as food. Food for Life[14] founder Swami Prabhupada[15] often gave the example of a dog on a throne. “If you throw a shoe, then the dog will leave his throne to chew the shoe,” he chuckled. Similarly, although an individual may claim to be enlightened or a great moralist, actions speak louder than words, and soon enough those actions will always reveal their true nature.

The Bible says: “The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”[16]The tongue will always lead the other senses either to purity and thus liberation, or to debauchery and thus perpetual entanglement in sin.In this spirit,FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul provides a Food Offering Meditation that encapsulates the core lessons learned along the journey, while also respecting the need for the individual to be able to use this meditation within the context of their preferred spiritual tradition.FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soulaims to do this by teaching universally accepted principles of science and spirituality and not dogma.

In FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul, I also share my personal experiences as a young monk and student of India’s Vedic culture of hospitality, while also drawing from numerous scientific and religious sources to provide a believable framework to elevate the act of eating from the shackles of the mundane to the liberating embrace of the transcendental.

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.
