Banyen's Description: 

When we eat, can we feed the soul as well as the body? Can a diet have impact on spirituality? Spiritual Nutrition, now completely rewritten and expanded, explores the spiritual, scientific, intuitive, and metaphysical aspects of nutrition, Kundalini, and the awakening of consciousness. This exciting new paradigm reflects the meaning of nutrition and assimilation based on the relationship of the colour of foods eaten to the corresponding rainbow colours of the human chakra system—or the “rainbow diet.”

Empowering readers to develop personal diets that are appropriate to their lifestyles and spiritual practices while drawing on 14 years of clinical experience and research, Dr. Gabriel Cousens posits a new meaning for “nutrient assimilation” by describing how the body functions as a “human crystal” to absorb plant material and energy into energetic and biomolecular structures. He discusses nutritional issues including raw vs. cooked food; high vs. low protein; the concepts of assimilation and fasting; alkaline/acid balance; attitudes about food; nutrients, energy, and structure building to support a practical, comprehensive approach to spiritual nutrition.

I show one how to alchemically transform the crude body & mind into the subtle or sattvic body & mind... This book prepares us to awaken from the delusion of the separate ego self so we can move into the cosmic awareness of who we are.

For true nourishment, he strongly promotes the connection of diet to meditation, fellowship, wisdom, and love.

The book reveals several important new understandings about the unfolding of the kundalini in nutrition, giving the reader the ability to significantly optimize their diet in a balanced way to support this holy process. His discourses on water, minerals, and live food also reveal another new level of understanding in these areas.

“Gabriel Cousens is a courageous explorer of the hidden depths of diet and devotion. If you want to infuse your body with Love’s Light, if you want to eat Light so the sun of your heart may shine more fully, then Spiritual Nutrition is your book.” —David Deida, author of Wild Nights
