I learned a lot during this past weekend’s free virtual mindful eating event, and I hope you did too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’ll be releasing a more detailed outline by the end of the week, but here is an overview of the new-and-improved EAT curriculum that I’ll be teaching again beginning in October:

  • An introduction to mindfulness skills (and how they will help you reach your health- and weight-related goals)
  • The basic principles of mindful eating
  • Learning to achieve balance – listen to your body’s natural feedback system: mindfulness of hunger, fullness, satiety, and taste preferences
  • Learning to cope with difficulties and cravings: short & sweet lessons from a variety of self-compassion, mindfulness- and acceptance-based models

I’m working on a “traditional” track (6-8 sessions, in-person, maintenance sessions as needed) and an abbreviated version (YouTube videos or CD’s + handouts only, for individuals who have already established care with another provider or are seeking these educational materials only).
