A way to reduce stress
with Lorraine M. Hobbs, M.A.
Saturday, September 9, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
What is mindful eating?
Based on the work of Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins, LCSD, this introductory workshop is not designed to help us lose or gain weight, but to help us lose the weight of the mind’s unhappiness with eating and dissatisfaction with food. Mindful eating involves purposefully and non-judgmentally paying attention to what is happening right now within your body, mind and heart, as well as what is happening outside in the environment. We will explore the “nine hungers” including eye, nose, touch, ear, mouth, stomach, body, mind and heart hunger that commonly drive our eating, which can lead to fewer automatic responses and more conscious choices related to your thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with eating and your body satisfaction. As a result, you can learn once again to feed yourself well and eat with pleasure vs. reacting to levels of stress, worry, fear, anxiety with unhelpful eating habits.
When mindful eating is a regular part of your life, eating and food can be transformed from a source of distress to a source of self-understanding, satisfaction, and even joy!
