Feeding the Soul: Eat Right, Feel Great, Embrace your True Self

by Meir Elkabas

Level: All
Text: Likutey Moharan 47, Other Texts

Are you endlessly searching for that one magic diet that’s going to satisfy your hunger and help you feel better about yourself? Can you really trust the doctors and diet gurus, or the latest health fads?

What are you really hungry for?

Jews have always known that what we eat and how we eat it is important — on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. The laws ofkeeping kosher, special Shabbat and holiday foods, and even fast days are integral to Jewish life.  For Jews, food is definitely a focus!

But Rebbe Nachman of Breslov has a unique outlook on why we struggle with our relationship to food. In this one-of-a-kind course, Reb Meir guides us through the teachings in Rebbe Nachman’s Likutey Moharan 47 and other texts that will help us heal our hunger. Eating right goes deeper than we think.

Some topics include:

  • How to Eat What You Need and Feel Satisfied—Really
  • Are There Spiritual Consequences of Overeating?
  • The Concepts of Truth, Harmony, and Earning a Living and Their Relationship to Our Attitudes About Food and Diet
  • Sustenance and the Land of Israel Relates
  • Empower Yourself and Connect to the Source of Miracles
  • Learn How to Decrease Food-dependence and Increase Bounty and Joy
  • And much more.

I’ve often wondered what it raelly means to connect to the tzaddik. I’ve been doing hitkashrut more often which helps and gained a lot through Yehudis’ shiurim and now this post. Neither I nor my husband will be going to Uman for Rosh HaShana. I love the idea of having my thoughts there and praying to connect to Rebbe Nachman consciousness. Thanks for the eitzot, Yehudis. As usual, you are a real inspiration.
