This Round Table Discussion with Board Members of TCME will address important information for deepening your mindfulness practice and honing your skills as a mindful eating teacher. We will be discussing the Good Practice Guidelines and the new and exciting programs that TCME will be offering to support you over the coming year. The guidelines are meant to be an encouragement and inspiration. The new programs are intended to increase your exposure to the latest research in the field and give you a greater understanding of the underlying teachings of mindfulness. We will also be asking for your suggestions on what TCME could do that would be most helpful for you as mindful eating teachers.
