In a world of multitasking and fast food, mindless eating is all too common. We have less and less time and ability to stop, stay focused, and get in touch with our inner selves – our thoughts, feelings, and sensations.
Mindful eating involves paying full attention to the experience of eating and drinking, both inside and outside the body. Food is a powerful sensual experience that engages all our senses. We pay undivided attention to the colours, smells, textures, flavours, temperatures, and even the sounds (crunch) of our food. We become fully engaged in the present moment.
Topics covered in the course include:
• Mindfulness – what is all about?
• Mindful eating – becoming a skilled eater: attentive, eating for the right purpose, and having a sense of control!
• Meditative practices: learning to tune in to your body’s sensations, including hunger;
• Experiencing mindful eating together –sharing and questions.
Discover a new relationship with the food and begin your mindfulness journey!
