Based on the Chod, or Cutting Through Ego Clinging, teachings of the Tibetan yogini Machig Lapdron, this book presents these ancient practices to the modern Western world - an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, fears, illnesses, and self-defeating patterns. Allione, author of Women of Wisdom, explains that if we fight our demons they only grow stronger - but if we feed them, nurture them, we can free ourselves from the battle. Through the practice outlined in Feeding Your Demons, we can learn to overcome any obstacle and achieve freedom and inner peace.
