Mindful Eating is an 8-week program designed to support the continued practice of mindfulness in daily life. Since we nourish ourselves with food and beverages several times a day, mindful eating provides a ready pathway for infusing our lives with "the magic of mindfulness".
Beyond being a very practical application of mindfulness, it can be an especially powerful one as well. Eating is a biological need. To this we add our own personal and cultural histories. For many of us these factors combine to create a relationship to food and our bodies that is complex and sometimes difficult.
As we practice eating with full attention to the experiences of body, mind and emotions in the light of non-judgmental awareness, we can begin to develop a healthier relationship to ourselves, resulting in a natural desire to eat well.
Participants will need to bring
their own food/beverages and utensils to class for mindful eating.
Classes meet for eight sessions, once a week. Visit the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Programs web site for a complete schedule with all the class meeting dates and more information.
