    About the Event

    Having a difficult relationship with food and our bodies and practicing mindful eating sometimes can be very challenging for some of us. Developing a compassionate mind can help us act from a compassionate mindset before we address these challenges. Learning how our evolutive brains work, the different emotional regulation systems, and the importance of soothing to generate self-compassion can be very helpful, particularly to help us deal with our emotions.

    This webinar will move from a theoretical frame to satisfy our mind hunger into a self-compassion practice to feed out heart hunger.


    Learning Objectives

    1. Explain the need for self-compassion around food and eating.
    2. Understand our emotional system and the benefits of a compassionate approach
    3. Developing a compassionate mind: Activating the soothing emotional regulation system

    Sobre este Evento

    Practicar Alimentación Consciente cuando tenemos una relación difícil con la comida y nuestro cuerpo puede ser a veces muy desafiante para algunos de nosotros. Desarrollar una mente compasiva puede ayudarnos a actuar desde un enfoque diferente de autocuidado para abordar estos desafíos. Aprender cómo funcionan nuestros cerebros evolutivos, los diferentes sistemas de regulación emocional y la importancia de la autocompasión para el activar el sistema de afiliación, seguridad y calma  puede ser muy útil, especialmente para ayudarnos a lidiar con nuestras emociones.

    La intención de este seminario web  es la de alimentar nuestro hambre mental ofreciendo marco teórico para satisfacer una comprensión y desde ahí, movernos a la práctica de autocompasión para nutrir el hambre del corazón.

    Objetivos de Aprendizaje

    1. Comprender la necesidad de la autocompasión en el contexto de la comida y la alimentación.
    2. Comprender nuestro sistema de regulación emocional y los beneficios de un enfoque compasivo.
    3. Desarrollar una mente compasiva: como activar el sistema de Afiliación (verde) de regulación emocional

    About the Event

    People often ask about the difference between mindful eating and intuitive eating, as if knowing the answer would help them determine which practice will get the best results.

    Both the question and the underlying desire point to one of the main cognitive distortions people use that struggle with food and their bodies--namely, all-or-nothing, right or wrong, this or that. In my experience of teaching both mindful eating and intuitive eating, there are notable differences and similarities. I see them as kindred spirits with practices that complement and support each other. Knowing and understanding both can lead to a beautiful relationship with food and body, as well as to the rest of your life.

    In this webinar you will learn the principles of each practice, an expanded view of mindful eating through the lens of mindfulness itself, and how the skill of mindful awareness is the underlying key that unlocks the benefits of both.


    Learning Objectives

    1. List the 4 four foundations of mindfulness
    2. List the 10 principles of intuitive eating
    3. List 3 common misconceptions about mindful eating

    About the Presenter

    Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is an author and health psychologist who specializes in offering mindfulness-based interventions for mindful eating and living. After spending much of her career at the University of Missouri, she became the Executive Director of Tasting Mindfulness, LLC.

    In 2007, she developed an empirically-validated mindful eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She teaches her class live online over Zoom to professionals and the general public. She also travels nationally and internationally to teach mindful eating. 

    Dr. Rossy published the concepts from her program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution: Proven Strategies to End Overeating, Satisfy Your Hunger and Savor Your Life (New Harbinger, July 2016). Her book was named one of the top ten books of 2016 by Mindful.Org. Her newest book is Savor Every Bite: Mindful Ways to Eat, Love Your Body, and Live with Joy (New Harbinger, May 2021). 

    Dr. Rossy is also a certified Kripalu and Energy Medicine yoga (EMYoga) teacher who teaches locally in Columbia, MO, and internationally at Pura Vida Spa in Costa Rica. She completed a three-year Community Dharma Leader Training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California in January 2008 and has been a student of Buddhist meditation since 1998. She completed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher training from the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society in Massachusetts in 2004.

    Her greatest passion is helping people find delicious ways to eat and move their bodies, while discovering greater meaning and purpose in life. She loves to play the piano, do yoga, hike in nature, eat fabulous food, and celebrate life with friends. She can be found anywhere by listening for her infectious laugh.

    About the Event

    Join Wendy Busse, MSc, RD and your fellow TCME professional members as we discuss food sensitivity-restricted diet culture. The small group interaction will give you an opportunity to ask questions, discuss challenging cases, share your viewpoints, and get to know other professionals working in this field. Wendy will also share her theory on how the pervasive restricted diet messages create conditioned food sensitivities.


      About the Presenter

      Wendy is a registered dietitian from Alberta, Canada. She has worked in food sensitivity for over 25-years. Initially, her interest was the science of food allergy. As she started working in this area, she was drawn to understanding the mind-body connection and helping “grey” zone clients – individuals that do not fit neatly into any clinical practice guidelines and often fall through the cracks of our medical system. This led her on a journey to develop the Food Avoidance & Sensitivity Trap (FAST) model and the theory of conditioned food sensitivity. Currently, she is the director of the FAST Freedom Program. Wendy and her team help food sensitive clients make peace with food and expand their diet.
