A formal mindful meditation practice is essential to increase awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and body sensations that drive us to eat mindlessly. 

In this two-part webinar series, we discuss and explore 2 different formal meditation practices that can help us become more awake in our daily lives.

In part one of the series, we briefly review what mindfulness is, its history and benefits as a practice. Together, we will practice a Body Scan meditation. Then, we will review the scientific theory that helps to explain how this particular meditation can re-wire the brain and reduce disordered eating behaviors.  Participants will be provided a Body Scan audio file to practice throughout the week.  

In the second part, we will discuss and experience Sitting Meditation, a formal meditation practice that can re-wire the brain to become more attentive in our daily lives. We will also explore the neurological correlates of this practice, and discuss how this practice can improve our ability to respond to life, rather than reacting in mindless ways.

Learning Objectives - Part 1

  • Participants will describe a body scan meditation practice
  • Participants will summarize the benefits of a body scan meditation to enhance mindful eating

Learning Objectives - Part 2

  • Participants will describe a mindful sitting meditation practice

  • Participants will summarize the neurological underpinnings of the sitting meditation that can enhance mindful eating
