Resistance arises during any process of change. Wherever there are deeply held beliefs and habitual thoughts and behaviors, there will always be ambivalence about true transformation. This is especially true in the case of thoughts and behaviors related to food, eating, and our bodies.

Rather than viewing resistance as a problem, however, it can be seen as an essential teacher and ultimately part of the transformation. Further, we will explore how mindfulness practices can support our ability to engage resistance, both our own and that of our clients, by helping us re-frame how we see it and how we work with it in an ongoing way.
