This webinar is being presented to help professionals who are interested in the practice and teaching of mindful eating to understand the Good Practice Guidelines -- why they were developed, what they are, and how you can plan your journey of professional training as a mindful eating teacher or and learning about the guidelines teacher trainers adhere to when offering professional trainings.  (Download a copy of the Good Practice Guidelines)

This webinar will give you the important information for deepening your mindfulness practice and honing your skills as a mindful eating teacher. The guidelines are met to be an encouragement and inspiration.
