People struggling with eating disorders and dysfunctional attitudes toward food, and weight are dissociated from their inner selves, their bodies, and the world, and feel empty within. Mindfulness and meditation are effective methods towards healing the eating disorder by enabling the dissociated parts of the self to become conscious. In some Eastern philosophies, emptiness (Śūnyatā) is seen as a state of stillness, inner peace, and silence – only too seldom found in our American way of life - leading to personal growth and enlightenment.
