This guided weekend contemplative retreat will focus on the meditation practices of mindful eating and living. When we eat mindfully we involve all the senses by engaging our body and our mind. We utilize color, texture, smell, taste, and sound to nurture our experience. We learn to pay attention to what our body really needs and why. To support cultivating our awareness, we will quiet the mind and open the heart through sitting meditation, gentle yoga, walking meditation and nature awareness practices. Through these practices of deepening our inner awareness of the body, mind and heart we will experience wisdom and compassion, which is our true nature. We can experience food as pleasure and nourishment while finding our right relationship to amount and quality in each moment. Mindful eating can nudge us beyond what we're craving so that we wake up to why we're craving it. Selected practices from MIndfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) will be included. Guidance is also provided in preparing, cooking and eating your own meals with mindfulness and loving kindness in the gourmet kitchen stocked with high quality staples This retreat is open to anyone wanting to deepen their practice, both beginners and for those with more experience in mindfulness meditation and mindful eating.
