For everyone; no previous meditation experience is required.
Experience a new approach to eating, one that cultivates inner wisdom through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations. National Institutes of Health-funded research has shown Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness to be a powerful approach to addressing mindless eating that leads to struggling with weight, obesity, and disordered eating patterns.
In this workshop, you learn
- A way to eat that is more attuned to your body’s needs
- To experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating
- Ways to release the guilt and struggle often associated with dieting.
This weekend includes sitting meditation, eating meditations, group discussion, and gentle yoga exercises to heighten awareness and deepen understanding of mindfulness as it applies to eating and joyful living. You also explore current nutrition and exercise guidelines. The tools you take home can help you make more balanced and healthy choices in your life and be truly nourished by the food you eat.
