6-Week Mindful Eating Course
September 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+0
“Mindful eating is all about cultivating an awareness of how the body interacts with food. This means eating with the intention to respect and appreciate our body, in a non-judgmental manner. It means letting go of the tendency to cognitively control what we eat and to develop trust towards our body’s signals that guide our food choices.” – Dr. Cinzia Pezzolesi
With respect and love for the body as a starting point, this 6-Week Mindful Eating course will help you to get to the heart of physical and emotional eating challenges. Through a variety of mindfulness techniques, including eating exercises, mindful movement, self-kindness, and guided meditation, you will gain a deeper understanding of how to enhance the connection with the body and to develop self-regulation strategies.
Over the course of the six weeks, you will learn how to:
Use your body’s cues to help guide your decisions to begin and stop eating;
Eat the foods you like without guilt and without overeating;
Replace self-criticism with self-nurturing, forgiveness and compassion;
Make mindful choices when experiencing food cravings;
How to stop using food to regulate our emotional states; and
Incorporate mindful eating into daily life so you can practice beyond the course.
No prior mindfulness experience or knowledge required.
This class will be held on a web-based platform.
