Esther Cohen, MS, RD joins us today to discuss Nourishment and Embodiment. How do we nourish ourselves with things other than food? We are consuming and digesting more than just food, but also our environment and our experiences. It’s so important to be more present and mindful of the moment we’re in so that we’re more nourished by it, whether it’s spending time with family or simply enjoying our food to it’s fullest. But we also need to have freedom from food so that we can make conscientious choices.


Esther Cohen has dedicated the past 35 years to learning everything related to embodied psychology, physiology and energetics of eating and healing disease in the body. After years of study in Touch for Health, 5 Element Acupressure, and Meditative Practices, she pursued a path to integrate western science and received a Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition from Colorado State University. Esther is also a Registered Dietician and Functional Nutritionist. She earned her certification as an Intuitive Counselor from the National Institute of Alternative and Complementary Medicine and she’s a certified BodyTalk and Matrix Energetics Practitioner. Esther is also the owner of The Alchemy of Nourishment and the author of Alchemy of Nourishment: The Art, Science and Magic of Eating and Wild Contemplation: Journal of Embodiment, as well as many other nutritional guides and articles.
