    Introduction to Mindful Eating

    PRESENTED BY Linn Thorstensson, Nutritonal Therapist

    Wednesday January 8,1:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)

    Members: Free

    Non Members: $10

    This webinar will provide a thorough introduction to mindful eating for people new to the idea and practice. 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. Through this webinar participants will learn what mindful eating is and is not, the benefits of eating mindfully, and tools and techniques for practicing mindful eating.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understanding what Mindful Eating is & isn't
    2. The benefits of practicing Mindful Eating
    3. How to practice Mindful Eating in your everyday life

    The BASICS of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series which teaches you the skills you need to eat mindfully and provides a useful tool for teaching others. The BASICS of Mindful Eating is a component of the Eat for Life Program, developed by the presenter as a guide for each time you sit down to eat.

    The steps of the BASICS take you from the pause before you eat to the point where you are guided internally to stop eating. Mindfulness meditation and movement practice are at the foundation of eating mindfully and will be taught and offered as a home practice for the week between sessions.

    In the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you experienced with the practices. The overarching principles of mindful eating and research that highlights the benefits of mindful eating on emotional eating and binge eating will be reviewed. The necessity of deepening your mindfulness and mindful eating practice in order to teach it as well as supporting resources will be discussed.
