Mindful Eating is About learning to slow down while you eat and becoming fully aware of and connected to the process of nourishing yourself in body, mind, and spirit.
It is about letting go of the idea “good” or “bad” foods and to approach food like medicine. YOU pay attention and decide what your body needs and wants.
Through the Mindful Eating Method program, you will learn how to:
Check in with your hunger and learn to listen and trust your own internal cues
Tune into your inner capacity to gauge what you want to eat, how much you wish to eat,
and how to savor each bite of food
Care for yourself with kindness and compassion as you eat to satisfaction and joy
Explore and experience how much food is enough for your body
Identify the different kinds of hungers we all have such as mouth hunger, cellular
hunger, and heart hunger
Develop a different relationship to food and eating by reconnecting to the senses
Identify differences between physical hunger and emotional hunger
Eat with ease, joy, and satisfaction as you take the time to really taste your food
Will not ask you to give certain foods up

The Mindful Eating Method is a technique that we can all practice to develop kindness and compassion for ourselves and improve our relationship to food, eating, our bodies, ourselves, and ultimately others. It encourages change from the inside through mindful meditation,mindful eating practices, gentle movement exercises, and techniques for generating gratitude
toward the body.
“you’d be amazed at what you will leave with; physically, emotionally and spiritually”
“Wow I do a lot of emotional eating. It is so good to be able to name that and decide, consciously, how I want to respond. Sometimes the urge passes once I name it; sometimes I go right ahead and eat my feelings.”
” I learned about the various hungers and how to tap into them more deeply to see which are food related and which are non-food related.”
Find ease in your body and reconnect with your inner capacity for self-care in a kind and compassionate manner.
Through the Mindful Eating Method program, you will learn to reconnect with the felt-sensations within your body and learn how to experience what it is that you are hungry for and what you need. We live in a world that is increasingly experienced through social media. The more we are affected by unrealistic and often dangerous images of what we are told we should look like, the more likely we are to experience dissatisfaction with our bodies and diet in order to conform and contort our bodies to fit external authorities that do not have our best interests mind.
