About the Event

This webinar will explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your personal experience with food, eating, and body and how mindful eating can help. The session will include a guided meditation, an overview of Mindful Eating Principles,  group discussion, and an opportunity to practice mindful eating. 

The guided meditation will focus on reflections of the pandemic experience and its impact on attitudes and behaviors toward food and body.  We will explore the challenges and struggles but also as these experiences are related to improvement, awareness, and positive changes.

The group discussion will be a space for participants to share some of their personal experiences with food, eating, and body during the pandemic. The principles of mindful eating and how to use the practice will be discussed. 

To end the session, a mindful eating practice will be offered. Participants are encouraged to have a snack available to engage in this mindful eating practice.

Learning Objectives

    1. Deepening your awareness and the ability to reflect and share your own experience related to food and body
    2. Exploring your understanding of mindful eating and learning from other people's experiences
    3. Strengthen your mindful eating practice
