ME-CL2: Mindful Eating - Conscious Living: Deepening your Practice and Skills

  • Tuesday, September 15, 2020
  • Saturday, September 19, 2020
  • Great Vow Zen Monastery Clatskanie, OR, United States

This training is designed for professionals who have completed ME-CL1 and taught a minimum of one 8-week program using the ME-CL curriculum.

The heart of this second level training is an invitation for experienced ME-CL teachers to explore more deeply the principles that are the underpinnings of the ME-CL program and to step more fully into embodying this in their teaching. Teaching from this platform highlights the need for attendees to have ongoing formal and informal mindfulness practices. This training will focus on the cultivation of intentional presence, authenticity, integrity and mindfulness-informed boundaries that support both the teacher and participants.

While it is true that any aspect of life can be an entry way to becoming more mindful, disordered eating often comes with a complex history that can manifest in reactive behaviors. We will examine the importance of meeting ourselves and our participants with steadiness and kindness, and carefully contemplate the place of compassion in this program

Note: This is a required course for MECL Teacher Qualification or Certification. For more information: UC San Diego Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute

Facilitators: Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins, MSW, LCSW
