Suffering and Sustenance: Mindful ways to resolve the paradox
Ronna Kabatznick, Ph.D
Suffering is part of our daily existence yet through habit, we constantly push the unpleasant feelings away by seeking comfort in food. We seek sustenance, but in fact, the feeling of satisfaction, and the comfort that arises from it, is fleeting. It actually cannot be sustained. So what we consider both suffering and sustenance are actually part of each other. Within the experience of sustenance lies the feeling of suffering. And within suffering is also the possibility of sustenance. Audio file.

The Five Precepts of Mindful Eating: Ethical Considerations on the Path
Ronna Kabatznick, Ph.D.
Living isn't just a way of eating, it's a way of living. Mindful Eating
actually exists in a much wider context that includes the ways in which
we may harm ourselves both physically and emotionally. Additionally we
will examine the ways in which we speak about our food that may be
ungrateful and even morally incorrect. How honest are we about how we
use food to dampen emotions or use food as a weapon against ourselves?
And of course, there are the ways in which we may use food as an
intoxicant. Audio recording.
