Course Outline

Mindful eating is about using mindfulness practices to make food choices from a place of nurturing and nourishment, rather than regret, guilt and blame. It is a way to achieve acceptance, to slow things down, awaken our senses to notice our food and appreciate it for its nourishment, colour, textures and smells. It offers an opportunity to change your relationship with food as you learn how to reset your button about your food choices, without blame or attributing right or wrong. Most importantly mindful eating is a chance to step off the diet mentality treadmill to a path of exploration and compassion.

In this workshop you will explore various mindful eating practices so that you can experience something that might resonate with you as a do-able strategy.
