    Changing Your Relationship to a 'Difficult' Food Using Mindfulness

    An Experiential  Workshop

    PRESENTED BY Alice J. Rosen, MSEd, LMHC

    Monday June 10,12:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)




    Members: Free

    Non Members: $10

    This is an experiential exploration of your relationship to a food which is problematic for you. This could be a food you have difficulty savoring, difficulty staying present with while eating, or do not have a joyful relationship with for any reason. Please bring a food in that category.

    We will look at the quality of relationship to food as it connects to relationships with others and to ourselves, and then practice repairing that relationship eating by eating that food in a mindful way.

    Participants should have some familiarity with mindful eating prior to attending this program. The resources at the Introduction Mindful Eating page on our website are a good place to begin, as is our monthly Conscious Café.

    Learning goals:

    1. Learn to non-judgmentally access the quality of one's relationship with food

    2. Understand the good intentions of a relationship based upon emotional need

    3. Learn a path of mindful eating as a way to repair an uneasy relationship to food.

    Alice J. Rosen, MSEd, LMHC, is the founder of "The No-Diet and Self-Led Eating Workshops" and "The Conscious Cafe'. She is a faculty member of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, a Certified Internal Family Systems Therapist, and former Director of Education for "Feeding Ourselves (SM)".

    Alice initially trained as an expressive therapist and presently works as a psychotherapist and educator specializing in eating and body image issues. She also addresses more general issues such as anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, and chronic pain/stress.

    Mindfulness is a key reference point in Alice's practice. She started meditating in 1974. In 1979, during a mindfulness meditation retreat, in the midst of 17 years of conflict with food and her body, she experienced being calmly in charge, and fully satisfied. In eating mindfully, she discovered that she had an inherent wisdom about when, what and how much to eat.

    Alice leads mindfulness-based experiential workshops and groups designed to instill a healthy and satisfying relationship with food.  In addition, her work, using the Internal Family Systems Model, helps people understand and heal the emotional underpinnings of un-attuned eating.

    She has authored and produced the CD set, The Feeding Ourselves Method, A Guide to Achieving a Healthy Relationship with Food. Her publication credits include her column, "BODY INTELLIGENCE REPORT" which appeared for three years in the journal-letter, FOOD ISSUES.

    Finding balance through mindful eating

    For several decades the interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. In the past ten years there has been a new wave in research: mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Along with this, mindful eating has become an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.

    In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits. These meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week. It is recommended that health professionals only offer mindfulness exercises if they practice these skills and embody mindful living themselves.

    In part one of the series, we offer a framework that will provide participants with a better understanding of eating disorders from mindful eating perspective, a resume of up-to-date research, the preliminaries to work with patients with eating disorders, and the benefits.

    In the second part of the series, there is time for sharing and an opportunity to learn from each other what they’ve noticed in the past week. There will be further deepening of the mindful eating-based model for individuals with eating disorders (working with resistance, self-criticism, shame, difficult emotions). 

    Caroline Baerten is the founder of MeNu, Centre for Mindful Eating and Nutrition, in the heart of Europe (Brussels).

    She works as a Mindfulness-based nutritionist/RD, integrative psychotherapist and is also a qualified chef. She is the first certified Mindful Eating, Conscious Living teacher (ME-CL) worldwide and offers additionally Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Self-Compassion courses to her clients.

    Since 2012 she has created an international platform for mindful eating teachers in Europe. In her institute, mindful eating training programs are facilitated for European healthcare professionals and mentoring in mindful eating is offered through e-coaching.

    It is highly likely that you will have participants with trauma histories in your mindful eating groups or work with individuals. There are many things to be thoughtful about when working with survivors of abuse or neglect. Informed planning is important, but so is the teacher’s self-reflection about how they view these participants.

    Learning Objective:

    Participants will be able to establish one way in which they can create an inclusive physical environment for survivors of abuse in a mindful eating program.

    Charlotte Wilkins, MSW, LCSW has for the past 8 years traveled internationally with her co-teacher, Jan Chozen Bays, MD, training professionals in the Mindful Eating-Conscious Living™ program. Their wish is to help end the suffering that surrounds food, eating and body image.

    As a psychotherapist she specialized in working with women who had experienced childhood abuse and struggled with depression, anxiety and unbalanced eating patterns. Charlotte is the senior trainer for ME-CL 1 & 2 trainings MBSR training, a Certified MBSR teacher, mentor of teachers-in-training, and serves as an advisor to The Center for Mindful Eating.

    Never without a sense of humor about herself, she is happiest in her garden which she considers her therapy and it’s “Dirt cheap!” She is an avid bread bake which is for her a hands-on meditation.

    Presented by Andrea Lieberstein, MPH, RDN, RYT

    In this two part series, we will explore foundational practices needed to become an embodied practitioner of mindful eating. To be the most effective and authentic mindful eating practitioner, we must learn and embody the practice from inside out before teaching others.

    Being a practitioner calls upon us to intimately understand the practice of mindfulness and how this applies to eating, as well as to our own and our clients’ inner landscape. It encompasses cultivating and practicing a wise relationship to our bodies, mind, and heart leading to greater equanimity and joy. Embodied practice includes practicing self-compassion, and leads to clear seeing of the inner and outer skills and tools that support mindful choices.

    Learning Objectives Part 1    

    • Describe qualities and skills necessary for the mindfulness-based practitioner for the effective delivery of mindfulness and mindful eating skills and tools to clients.
    Learning Objectives Part 2
    • Describe the role of embodied mindful practice, including qualities of non-judgement and self-compassion for utilizing mindful eating tools and skills effectively in daily life.


    Andrea has trained thousands of health care practitioners in evidence-based protocols of mindful eating, such as MB-EAT, and more recently the Well Nourished Approach, laying the foundation for embodied practice, balanced living and becoming a positive change agent in this world.

    The Center for Mindful Eating is a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). CDR Credentialed Practitioners will receive 2 Continuing Professional Education units (CPEUs) for completion of both parts of this program.

    Engaging Resistance:

    A Mindful Approach


    Presented by Jenna Hollenstein & Alice Rosen

    Resistance arises during any process of change. Wherever there are deeply held beliefs and habitual thoughts and behaviors, there will always be ambivalence about true transformation. This is especially true in the case of thoughts and behaviors related to food, eating, and our bodies.

    Rather than viewing resistance as a problem, however, it can be seen as an essential teacher and ultimately part of the transformation. Further, we will explore how mindfulness practices can support our ability to engage resistance, both our own and that of our clients, by helping us re-frame how we see it and how we work with it in an ongoing way.

    In recent years, more and more people worldwide have turned to bariatric surgery to treat medical problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea that may be associated with weight. Many people who seek bariatric surgery struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, body image distress, and other eating disorder symptoms that are not resolved by bariatric surgery.

    Mindful eating approaches can help those who are planning to undergo surgery or who have already undergone surgery, to develop a more balanced, peaceful relationship with food and eating. In this webinar, we will briefly review bariatric surgery, the typical ways that bariatric surgery procedures impact eating, and how mindful eating skills and practices can be successfully adopted by people undergoing bariatric surgery.

    * Please note that this webinar does not promote or advocate bariatric surgery. It is being offered in recognition that mindful eating teachers and clinicians sometimes have clients who have undergone this type of surgery.


    Dr. Susan Wnuk, PhD., C. Psych, is a psychologist at the University Health Network Bariatric Surgery Program in Toronto where she provides clinical care to pre and post-bariatric surgery patients and conducts research.

    Her current areas of interest are mindfulness, emotion regulation, and the effectiveness of behavioural interventions for bariatric surgery patients. She is involved in research projects investigating psychosocial predictors of outcome in bariatric surgery patients and the effectiveness of various therapies for this population.

    Prior to joining the Bariatric Surgery Program in 2010, she worked in hospital-based eating disorder and borderline personality disorder programs. She facilitates workshops for professionals and presents at research conferences.

    Dr. Wnuk holds an academic appointment at the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry at the level of Assistant Professor.
