We are delighted to offer this special training opportunity for our TCME community. Join Mindful Eating/Conscious Living
co-creators Jan Chozen Bays
and Char Wilkins
for "The Magic of Slowing Down".
Slowing down is one of the most powerful tools in Mindful Eating. It may seem overly simple. It may seem too hard to accomplish in the midst of a fast-paced busy life. However, when we slow down, we are able to savor each bite, expand the experience and thus our satisfaction with eating.
This two-part teleconference series will include information about relevant research, practices to try at home and discussion about how to use this tool of mindful eating with clients or patients.
Part I: November 3, 11 am PST / 2 pm EST
Part II: November 7, 11 am PST / 2 pm EST
