Feast on your life

In an episode of On Being, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction founder Jon Kabat-Zinn (one of my first teachers as a new mindfulness-based psychotherapist) reads aloud Feast on Your Life, by the acclaimed poet Derek Walcott.

I thought of this poem while I making final updates to my Mindful Eating presentation for the Canadian Horticultural Therapy Association’s annual conference tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy the poem. Better yet, please savor it. Remember to “take in the good,” including self-compassion, in all areas of your life – including with food.
