When challenging, unwanted thoughts, emotions or behaviors arise, most of us want to avoid or distract ourselves. Offered by Char Wilkins, MSW, LCSW, this teleconference will explore how sometimes we use food which temporarily soothes, comforts or submerges the difficult internal experiences. Unfortunately, running from our shame and fear doesn’t eliminate our habituated use of food, in fact, it seems to become even more entrenched. Rather than coming to understand and work with what fuels our disordered relationship with food, the hope of change seems to slip further and further away. Turning toward what is difficult offers the possibility of freeing ourselves from the very patterns we fear the most.

Participants will:
·       Articulate one reason why turning towards an unwanted thought, emotion or behavior can be useful.
·       Understand the role the habituated mind plays in maintaining habits.
·       Learn a simple meditation to slow down and stay with a difficult moment
