Do you find that you are eating when you aren't hungry? Do you feel there is never enough time to eat a meal without doing something else or let alone make a healthy and satisfying meal? Join us for a lecture and cooking demo!
Food in our society is often a comfort. We eat when we are sad, happy, bored, or even stressed. When we bring mindfulness to our moments, we can ascertain what we are feeling and what we need and it is often not food.
Mindful eating is a way to rediscover one of the most pleasureable things we do as human beings. It is also a path to uncovering many wonderful activities going on right under our noses and within our bodies. Mindful eating has the unexpected benefit of helping us tap into our body's natural wisdom and our hearts natural capacity for openness and gratitude.
In this insightful workshop, you will learn the foundations of mindfulness applied to sitting, eating, and cooking. The evidence based tools from the instructor's work in Mindful Eating research will be taught: Hunger awareness, mindful choice, mindfulness of thoughts and feelings, and of mindful eating meditations. Additionally, you will leave with new tools in the joy of mindful cooking with easy and flavorful healthy recipes for the New Year! Come and enjoy a night to Savor the Slowness of Mindful Eating and Cooking.
