With MB-EAT Teacher Trainer and Mindfulness Meditation Instructor:
Andrea Lieberstein, MPH, RDN, RYT and guest faculty appearances by Jean Kristeller, PhD
Learn to become an embodied mindful eating and meditation practitioner and instructor.
This is the sixth dynamic year Andrea has offered the three-month online training and mentoring program which provides training in the practices and approaches of the Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training Program (MB-EAT), in mindfulness meditation, and other mindfulness practices as they support the practice of mindful eating and living. MB-EAT was pioneered by Dr. Jean Kristeller, and supported by NIH-funded research. It addresses mindless and stress-related eating, emotional eating, disordered eating patterns and obesity so prevalent in our culture through the application of mindfulness meditation. This training provides a weight inclusive approach to mindful eating and living.
“…Andrea is a passionate facilitator and teacher with vast meditation experience, who is able to balance the science behind MB-EAT with mindfulness practice in a way that creates a learning environment that is both rich in depth and breadth. I highly recommend this course. It is both personally and professionally rewarding. "
- Barbara Sobel., MS, Integrative Nutritionist, Winter 2016 Online MB-EAT Training

"You don't just learn about the techniques of mindful eating with Andrea, you learn what it FEELS like to live, breathe and practice a lifestyle of eating as a form of meditation. She helped me experience mindfulness and understand meditation through the lens of a mindful eater. By practicing this art at the table, we transform and embody this practice beyond the table, as it moves into other experiences in our lives. As a fellow dietitian, Andrea is a unique gift in the world of nutrition because she breathes live into everything she teaches, which then only deepens my own understanding of nutrition and convinces me even more how possible it is to make peace with food."
