The Center for Mindful Eating (TCME) is a member-supported, nonprofit international organization. Our mission is to help people achieve a balanced, respectful, healthy and joyful relationship with food and eating. TCME provides resources for educating professionals, institutions, and individuals in the principles and practices of mindful eating.
Mindfulness is the capacity to bring full attention and awareness to one’s experience, in the moment, without judgment. Mindful Eating brings mindfulness to food choice and the experience of eating.
Mindful eating helps us become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations related to eating, reconnecting us with our innate inner wisdom about hunger and satiety.
Members of TCME take an active role in supporting our mission to help people achieve a balanced, respectful, healthy and joyful relationship with food and eating.
Benefits of membership include free and reduced price attendance at our professional development webinars, opportunities for earning continuing education credit, free access to our webinar and Food for Thought archives, educational handouts you can use in your professional practice, networking opportunities, and much more.
Food for Thought is our quarterly journal for mindful eating professionals.
Each issue of Food for Thought contains articles focusing on a mindful eating topic, an educational handout for clients, and either a scripted meditation practice or further exploration of the philosophical roots of mindful eating.
