    For Mental-Health and Health-Care Professionals.
    Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller and supported by NIH-funded research, addresses mindless and stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity through the application of mindfulness meditation. This workshop provides intensive training in the application of the MB-EAT intervention program in clinical settings.


    Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction work and the principles of food-intake regulation, the MB-EAT program employs mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, didactic instruction, and self-reflection to cultivate awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight.
    Those with a substantive mindfulness meditation practice and related professional/clinical experience with eating issues are eligible to receive the full manual and be qualified to teach the MB-EAT program. Others receive an introduction to the practices of MB-EAT and gain valuable tools, approaches, and information to integrate into their work with others.


    Note Tuition includes the Eating for Awareness CD set. Attendance at this workshop does not automatically qualify you to teach the MB-EAT program, but you will receive skills and tools to integrate into clinical practice. For more information, e-mail registration@kripalu.org or call 866.200.5203. Full program listing available on Kripalu Center's website.

    • Webinar: FREE to TCME members, $15 non-members
    The sustained application of Buddhist loving-kindness meditation for the development of care, empathy and compassion for oneself and others, serves purposes both to enhance interpersonal skills and as a motivational force in mindful eating.

    TCME is delighted to welcome Uffe Damborg, Danish Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher to present "Eating with Loving Kindness." 

    This program addresses all degrees of overeating, and even severe levels of binge eating. The program sees the effects of existential stress as primary causes of troubled eating patterns.  Accordingly, a person with a weight and overeating problem must 1) unlearn the problematic pattern through the cultivation of full presence with the natural inner hunger and satiety regulation when eating; and 2) by the same motivation learn a healthier and more effective way of managing stress instead of abusing food. 

    Eating With Loving Kindness with Uffe Damborg
    7/7/2015 - 11 am EST
    Free to TCME members / $15 non-members
    One CPE available to all participants

    Both skills are the outcome of the very simple but not so easy practice of mindful eating awareness.  The approach in this program however, is informed by very structured  sequences of Buddhist insight and breathing meditation in order to deepen the therapeutic effect of informal mindful eating awareness. The heightened awareness of the enjoyment of eating is experienced as a weight regulating reward throughout the program. 

    The sustained application of Buddhist loving-kindness meditation for the development of care, empathy and compassion for oneself and others, serves purposes both to enhance interpersonal skills and as a motivational  force in mindful eating.

     You will learn how:

    1) To apply very structured mindfulness strategies to avoid the pitfalls of mindless eating.

    2) To cultivate the intention of self-care, self-empathy and self-compassion in order to deal with eating problems.

    3) To cultivate enjoyment of eating as a important weight loss condition.


    Uffe Damborg is a Danish Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher, (both secular and spiritual), who teaches at Buddhist retreats in Scandinavia. In collaboration with Nutritionist and Weight Loss Counselor Per Brændgaard, Uffe has been implementing mindful eating practices in the National health sector since 2007. Their very structured approach to mindful eating is the topic of this book: Mindful Eating Awareness: Weight Loss with Wisdom. The English version was published in 2014. Both Uffe and Per have worked with mindful eating in individual consultations, group-based courses, lectures and through the media. Uffe has spent 8 years as a lay practitioner in Buddhist meditation monasteries in South Asia, the home of mindfulness, that adds a special flavor to his way of integrating mindful eating into Western psychology.

    He loves reading, writing and meditative gardening at his summer house in Southern Sweden.

    Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) Retreat
    Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller, addresses the mindless eating so prevalent in our culture undefined the type of eating that can lead to weight gain, obesity, disordered eating patterns, and stress-related eating.


    In this highly participatory weekend, you can experience a new approach to eating, supported by NIH-funded research, that helps you cultivate your inner wisdom through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations. You will be shown how to eat in a way that is more attuned to your body's needs, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with eating. Outer wisdomundefinedmaking personal use of current, scientifically-based nutrition and exercise guidelinesundefinedwill also be explored. These tools can help you make informed, balanced, healthy choices in your life and be truly nourished by your food.

    In addition to learning specific approaches to mindful eating, the workshop includes daily sitting meditations and gentle movement to bring awareness and deepen your understanding of mindfulness as it supports more balanced living.
    No previous mindfulness meditation experience is required.

    Meditation & Mindful Eating - Three Part Series


    Strengthening Your Mindfulness Muscles with Lynn Rossy, Ph.D. 


    Part II: Mindfulness - Sitting Makes Eating so Much Better! | July 23, 5:30 pm EST



    Having a mindfulness meditation practice is not necessary to be a mindful eater, but it helps. Research shows that people who are stronger in mindfulness are more likely to eat intuitively, have better body image, and have less disordered eating. Mindfulness is a skill that helps you focus and attend to sensations like hunger, satiety, and taste, as well as increases kindness and self-compassion. Meditation practice is a method for strengthening your mindfulness. It’s like going to the gym for your mind. This three part series will take all of the mystery out of meditation, show you how to apply it to mindful eating, and help you establish a meditation practice of your own.


    Participants will:


    • Learn basic meditation practices that increase focus, attention, and lovingkindness
    • Learn how mindfulness meditation practice enhances your efforts to eat mindfully
    • Learn 8 ways to make your meditation practice a habit rather than an afterthought
