About the author

null

On her own decades-long journey with emotional eating, Tameen Faridi realized that her relationship to food had not occurred by accident. A personal growth enthusiast, she was committed to finding her way through it while honoring this process. And now, she is passionate about helping others to see that their dysregulated eating has a purpose — as a powerful signpost, a message that it is time for change, to finally reach a place of peace and understanding with food.  

Her law degree equipped her with the ability to think more deeply and innovatively, while her time spent in the Corporate Communications and Public Relations fields helped her to connect genuinely with people from all walks of life. Robbins Madanes Training, where she is certified as a Strategic Intervention Coach, also provided her with a methodology for transformation and growth. But it was her own life experiences that were the spark for her search for answers.   

Tameen is a devoted mother to two beautiful children. She has been a resident of ten different countries from the Indian subcontinent to Europe, the Far East, the United States, and to the Middle East. Growing up in a multi-cultural household, she was able to experience firsthand a wide range of cultures and backgrounds, affirming her belief in our common humanity and connectedness. These personal narratives have given her the unique strength to instinctually see past the outer labels we often put on ourselves instead of nurturing our shared, deep-seated, vital emotional and spiritual needs.

Catalyze your Evolution
- A Path to Eating Equilibrium -

Invisible Treats: Poetic Delicacies for the Hungry Heart, through prose, poetry, recipes, and artwork, gives voice to my cathartic journey with emotional eating, and serves as a field guide with strategies to provide a doorway to self-acceptance grounded in mindful awareness and deep compassion. 

It will help those readers walking in the dark tunnel of compulsive eating and body dissatisfaction, towards a path of eating equilibrium. It encourages readers to honor and trust their hunger and fullness signals while satisfying their physical, not psychological hunger. By savoring their way out of dysregulated eating, readers will also be inspired to befriend and inhabit their bodies, arriving at a deeper awareness of the shape of both their figures and feelings. Their resolve to escape from the prison of their limiting beliefs to find their voice will be strengthened, while a curiosity as to when and why they use food in times of emotional overwhelm to numb and sooth themselves is fostered. Going beyond the fog of compulsive behaviors, new vistas will be opened onto what the real yearning is underneath, to determine the question of what kind of “nourishment” they are truly seeking.

While this reflective compilation has the underlying theme of the author’s relationship to food as a metaphor for personal growth, it is also much more than that. My musings delve into the wise pronouncements of her children, potent dreams and lessons from mundane activities, as well as from all kinds of teachers including plants and animals. This is also a journey of spiritual unearthing where my Sufi lineage compels me to turn my attention to the mystical harmonies singing within me, to become a conduit for the messages that arise. A combination of both tangible and intangible edibles, this collection is infused with the sweet flavors of the invisible world that will illuminate a path to tenderness for all those who crave it.

Empowering transformation bridging mind and heart, Invisible Treats seeks to elevate all bold souls rising in search of the freedom provided by another kind of sustenance.

Tasty Treats

Included are also some homey recipes, or Tasty Treats, to provide comforting nourishment, as well as the intangible sustenance of the poems for the heart mind and soul. The book is organized into three “Menus.” Each is introduced by a preamble or “A note from the chef,” to assist in building bridges through the poems to make them easier to digest. A “Tasty Treat” can be found after the poems that are the “dishes” spread out through each of the three “Starters,” “Main Courses,” “Side Dishes,” “Desserts” and “Drinks” sections. Each is accompanied by a whimsical sketch done by my daughter and mother, reflecting some of the themes arising in the poetry of that particular section.
