  • Do you want to develop a healthier, more joyful relationship with food?’
  • Where do you “look” in your body to decide if you are really hungry?
  • And how can you change unwholesome eating habits? 

The upcoming four-week workshop, Mindful Eating, addresses common challenges/dilemmas we face with food.  We will explore becoming more curious and aware of hunger and learn to identify which kind of hunger we are feeling and how best to satisfy it.  We will apply mindfulness to our choices and experiences with food and set clear intentions to support the development of new habits.  We will learn how to be more patient and compassionate toward ourselves as we gain a personal understanding of what it means to be mindful about eating, to enjoy meals more deeply, and to make important lifestyle changes.

This four-week series begins on Monday, April 9 and continues weekly on April 16, 23 and 30 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the FCM Practice Center in Tampa. 

The sessions will be very participatory and interactive with discussions and exercises, as well as homework. Required reading includes Mindful Eating:  A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food by Jan Chozen Bays, MD.  Please purchase the book before the class begins.  (Cost is about $20.00 including tax.)

Workshop Objectives:

(1)  Understand how mindfulness relates to eating.

(2)  Identify habits that cause suffering in our relationship with food.

(3)  Set aspirations and intentions to develop more wholesome habits.

(4)  Experience different kinds of hunger and explore patterns of our reactions.

(5)  Establish guidelines for mindful eating and cultivate gratitude.
