Under the Light of Full Moon

you find your way...

FALL 2022

Do you find yourself saying, I know better, why can’t I change my eating behaviors?

Are you ready to learn the skills you need to apply the insights you’ve gained? And make the changes you want?

Do you want to learn other ways of feeding your emotional and spiritual hungers so you don’t turn to food?

In Under the Light of the Full Moon you’ll discover the tools you need to make specific changes in your eating behaviors and your relationship with your body.

Come join your “moon sisters” for this leg of the recovery journey.

Light of full moon shines Light on the path...
So you can see where you want to go.

This is the intermediate follow-up course. You have to take the New Crescent Moon first. And then you’ll get to build on the insights you got there. You’ll learn more about the awesome nature of your Feminine Psyche. And how to work with it to transform your relationship with food.

If you haven’t taken the New Crescent Moon course, you can sign-up here to get on the wait list.

Under the Light of the Full Moon you’ll develop emotional literacy and assertive communication. With a ton of support and guidance! So you can identify and express your feelings directly – rather than through eating behaviors. And you’ll learn how to work with, not against, your intuition. So you can get the clarity you need to break free from eating difficulties.

Under the Light of the Full Moon has helped me tremendously on my way to turn to my inside in order to invite in long suppressed feelings, and establish a relationship with my feminine powers and being - instead of suppressing my needs and desires with food. I have learned to break through my numbness, to speak my truth, and to apply the skills to learn to be assertive. Now, I can see clearly my path for healing.

You’ll shift how you see your body. Hard to believe, I know! Instead of hating it, you’ll be awed by what it means to be in the body of a woman. You’ll get to discover a new way of being. One that transforms your relationship with yourself, your body, and others in your life.

Recovery from disordered eating is possible! For many decades, I have experienced difficulties with disordered eating and body acceptance. I was well-acquainted with the feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness that accompany these difficulties. Throughout Under the Light of the Full Moon, participants are supported by their co-participants, who quickly become their sisters. I never before felt as though others understood my struggles as much as I did in these courses. If you have ever felt as though you are not enough, that your difficulties with food seem like too much to bear, take courage. Anita’s courses can guide you in your journey of healing

The Full Moon module illuminates the steps to take so you can move towards a life that is YOUR life. A life that fulfills you and frees you from eating and body struggles. One where you’ll glow with the full essence of who you are as a woman.

You’ll identify and develop the skills you need. Create changes in your relationship with yourself and others. And free yourself from disordered eating thoughts and behaviors.

Through Anita's great work in Under the Light of the Full Moon, I have become my authentic self. The feeling that comes from authenticity is INCREDIBLE. It's truly like winning the lottery. It’s improved my marriage, some friendships, and made me available to TRUE relationships I enjoy. Thank you.

Spend 8 weeks in a Supportive Circle of Women with Dr. Anita Johnston

The weekly format is the same as the New Crescent Moon.

The Full Moon shines a bright light so you can see what’s essential if you want to be free. Forever.

It illuminates the emotional, intuitive, and relationship-oriented qualities of the Feminine Psyche. So you can discover how to use them to support you on your journey towards wholeness.

At its heart, the Feminine is concerned
about relationship and connection.

Under the Light of the Full Moon you’ll explore new ways of relating to food and your body. With awareness and appreciation of the natural rhythms of the female body. You’ll learn the communication skills you need to create relationships that are supportive. And nourishing.

Going through the New Crescent Moon and now just finishing Under the Light of the Full Moon has been so helpful for me on my journey to recovery from Anorexia, body image issues, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. My cafe sisters are so supportive, understanding and inspiring and we all want to see each other succeed in our recovery process. For me being able to trust and allow myself to be vulnerable with women from all over the world and not be judged or criticized has truly been so freeing, heart-warming and safe! It was really comforting to see that I was not alone in dealing with my struggles.

Here, we bring compassion to all the rejected parts of our feminine nature. Those dismissed, disregarded, and shamed by our modern culture. You’ll learn how to claim and develop your inner GPS. Your emotional, instinctive, and intuitive guidance system. So that it works for you, not against you. You’ll discover how to get the nurture and comfort you have always hungered for. Without turning to eating and food.

This course is just so divinely inspired I am amazed. I thought I knew all there was to know about ED recovery. I had been at so many out-patient programs, two inpatient treatment programs, and at 12 step programs. This course took me so much deeper and the structure was so incredibly inspired to allow for getting into the materials one way or the other and to really allow for connection with self. I cannot say enough about the course AND I must also say that I could not have felt so committed and gained what I did without the sisters who courageously continues to share this adventure with me. I am so grateful for the courage, honesty and hope shared. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH SISTERS! And, Anita, you truly inspire.

Module #1

Waves of Emotion

We begin this series by diving deep into the heart of the matter. Into the realm of emotions.

You'll explore the direct connection between emotions and eating behaviors. And learn a whole new way of relating to your feelings. Here, you'll see your feelings as gateways to wisdom and guidance. Rather than stumbling blocks to avoid or overcome. You'll discover how it's “emotional illiteracy” that leads to struggles with food. And how it's your attempts to block emotions (rather than the feelings themselves) that leads to disordered eating.

Module #2

Finding Nurture

This is a big one! You'll learn about the “Archetypal Mother” that exists within everyone.

And everywhere. Whether we know it or not. She's the part of us that can give us just the right amount of compassion, guidance, support, and nurture we need. Without Her, we're vulnerable to harsh judgments and criticisms from ourselves (or others.) That's what drives us to seek comfort and solace in food behaviors. You'll learn how to access the powerful nourishment she has to offer — and how to find it elsewhere in your life

Module #3


Here you'll get to understand the nature of “women’s intuition” as a different way of knowing.

You'll learn how to honor and listen to that quiet, inner voice from within. With curiosity. Instead of ignoring it or stuffing down those “gut feelings” with food. You'll reclaim your “inner authority.” And find out what you're really hungry for.

Module #4

Feminine Cycles

This week we look at the feminine cycle – from menarche to menopause.

And its powerful relationship to food cravings, mood swings, and negative body image. You'll get to shed many of the feeling of shame and loathing inherited from our culture. Because we weren't taught to value, honor and embrace the most profoundly feminine aspect of our bodies. Here, you'll learn how to appreciate and work with your cyclical nature.

Module #5

Feminine Sexuality

Imagine exploring your feminine sexuality from a personal, subjective perspective. From the inside out.

By focusing on your desires rather than desirability. Our culture objectifies women’s sexuality and defines it by what it “looks like.” So many of us have feelings of confusion, fear, rejection, and sadness around our sexuality. Our disconnect from the deepest part of our feminine nature leaves us with a hunger that we don’t know what to do with. We try to stuff it down with food or starve it so it will go away. Here, you will find ways to recognize and reclaim your own unique sensual, sexual nature. What it "feels like." For you. And free yourself from society’s messages and early experiences where it was not honored.

Module #6

Relationships: Honoring Self & Others

There's delicate balance between being in relationships with others. And being true to ourselves.

You'll see how tending to the needs of others without acknowledging your own needs leads to deprivation. An ever-present, hunger that nags at you. Constantly. In this week you'll learn how to be attentive and respectful of others. Without losing your voice or your authenticity. Without sacrificing your sense of who you are and what you value.

Module #7

Assertiveness: Speaking your truth

You'll put it all into action, here. With practical ways to find your voice and speak the truth – in the kindest way possible.

You'll learn the Number One Skill for complete, lasting recovery from disordered eating. Assertive communication. It's absolutely essential! Because this is how you'll embrace the essence of who you really are. And set clear limits. Without being hurtful to others or yourself. Because it gets rid of the constant anxiety (which we try to fend off with eating behaviors) that comes from acting one way when we're feeling another. It'll put you on the path of heart. One which leads you towards people and situations that'll nourish you. And steer you away from those that won't.

Module #8

Embodying the Feminine

What does it mean to be the embodiment of the feminine? To you?

You'll find out here. And see how it gets played out in different stages and phases of your life. You'll discover how women of all ages can connect with the many aspects of the feminine principle. Regardless of their chronological age. And use these energies to heal from disordered eating and negative body image.

When I started this program, I was still in the early stages of recovery from my restrictive eating disorder and had realized that the full-on medical model, almost forced recovery approach was not working for me anymore. I am pretty sure it never worked for me, actually, but I did not know what other options existed. Being asymptomatic, or with few visible behaviors, has always seemed to me the goal of treatment and the recovery process but this course has helped me to learn otherwise. The TRUE recovery process requires going inward...something I never knew how to do and, honestly, always feared. I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking true and sustained recovery. It helped move me along this journey and I am so grateful.

Thank you so much for this life-changing journey, Anita. I have gone deeper at the Light of the Moon Cafe courses than in several decades of therapy and spiritual practice, which is what I needed to recover from disordered eating. You helped me face and understand what was holding me back and keeping me addicted. In some ways, I feel my life is just beginning now. Thank you for being a wise and compassionate guide through the labyrinth.

~L.M. Austin, TX

For decades I have dealt with disordered eating. I have tried every fad diet, and none fad diets. Read every book I could about why I couldn't lose weight. Finally, I randomly started listening to Anita on Podcasts. This led me to reading her book. I decided to just take the first session. Wow. It was eye opening. I did a lot of work on myself but felt I needed more. I ended up doing all courses. I am now recovered from Disordered Eating.

These sessions are not easy, as they have you go deep within yourself. But Anita has such a gentle way of guiding you that you feel safe to keep going. The group of sisters I made through this journey I will be attached to forever as I could not have done this without them. I am a different person than how I started and I am forever grateful to Anita and my sisters.
