Halé Sofia Schatz, international author, nourishment educator and filmmaker, has focused on cultivating the essential correlation between nourishment, health, and spiritual awareness for over four decades. With a degree in psychology and training in both Eastern and Western approaches to health, nutrition, and well-being, Halé offers a multi-disciplinary perspective that respects the individual’s unique needs. Halé’s lifelong inquiry into diverse spiritual practices has led her to discover methods for accessing our innate spiritual wisdom through the daily practice of nourishing ourselves. Her unique approach to food, health, and healing is a synthesis of Mediterranean and Asian influences. She has traveled extensively in those regions of the world, and has learned from traditional peoples as well as master chefs and practitioners.

Whether with individual clients, groups, or large audiences, Halé’s work is inspirational and practical for those committed to making healthy changes in their lives. She combines her extensive knowledge of internal cleansing, food combining, herbs, and vital foods with a strong intuitive approach to help people embody spirit. Her work provides a practical, supportive approach to deeper issues of nourishment, well-being, and consciousness.

Although her private practice is located near Boston, Massachusetts, her clientele extends nationally and internationally. In addition to working with individuals, Halé has presented her work in diverse settings, offering programs for women, parents, yoga and retreat centers, as well as seminars for corporations and colleges. Due to the demand for her work, she also offered an intensive training program for aspiring nourishment educators and consultants.

Halé is deeply committed to educating parents in the importance of developing life-long patterns for health, awareness, and well-being in their families. She has collaborated with the Obesity Program, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, on integrating nourishment practices into family life.
Halé’s book, If the Buddha Came to Dinner: How to Nourish Your Body to Awaken Your Spirit is a synthesis of her unique and joyful approach to food and consciousness. It combines inspirational guidance with real-life stories, practical information, and delicious recipes. The Nourishment Cleanse Workbook is an excellent practical guide for integrating the Cleanse into daily practice.

Halé has been married for over 45 years, is a mother of three grown children and a grandmother too. She keeps a small herd of dairy goats and tends her organic gardens for her own nourishment in the Boston area.
