Program Description

How would it feel to finally relax around food, especially when thinking about weight loss? Take a compassionate, mindful, and scientifically proven route to losing weight and enjoying food and life.

Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) is a powerful and effective approach, supported by research funded by the National Institutes of Health, that addresses the mindless eating that is prevalent in our culture, and that can lead to weight gain, obesity, disordered eating patterns, and stress-related eating.

In this highly participatory weekend, you will tap into your inner wisdom and create a new relationship to nourishing yourself through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations.

With skillful guidance, you will learn to:

  • Eat in a way that is attuned to your body’s needs
  • Fully experience the pleasure and taste of food without overeating
  • Release the guilt and struggle so often associated with dieting.

The weekend includes sitting meditation, eating meditation, discussion, and gentle movement exercises to heighten your mind-body awareness and deepen your understanding of mindfulness as it applies to eating and joyful living. You will take home tools to make more balanced, healthy choices at mealtimes and throughout your life.


Why Attend?

  • You want to have an easeful, fun, and enjoyable relationship to food.

  • You are looking for an effective, healthy, and natural way to lose weight, appreciate food, and nourish your body.

  • Gain compassionate, expert support for achieving your weight-loss goals.
