Would you like to improve your relationship with food, your weight and your body? Would you like this relationship to feel friendly, peaceful and easy?

If so, we invite you to try Mindful Eating for Healthy Living!

The practice of Mindfulness is at the heart of all aspects of healthy living, as it allows us to see clearly into the choices we make, the emotional reactions we have and find new ways to break old patterns. While this series is focused on food, eating and weight, the skills gained apply to all aspects of life.

If you eat to cope with stress, sadness, anger, boredom, anxiety or loneliness, and know that dieting is not the answer, we invite you to join us in this both ancient and revolutionary approach to a healthier you. This program offers an inner journey exploring our relationship with food, our bodies and our weight using the well-researched and effective techniques of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. You have the wisdom within you to eat and live vibrantly, let us help you reconnect with yourself.

The course will include instruction in mindfulness meditation, mindful eating, conscious food choices, mindful movement, awareness of eating patterns and triggers, and effective ways to cope with stress and emotions.
