“Mindful eating is all about cultivating an awareness of how the body interacts with food. This means eating with the intention to respect and appreciate our body, in a non-judgmental manner. It means letting go of the tendency to cognitively control what we eat and to develop trust towards our body’s signals that guide our food choices.” - Dr. Cinzia Pezzolesi 

With respect and love for the body as a starting point, this 6-Week Mindful Eating course will help you to get to the heart of physical and emotional eating challenges. Through a variety of mindfulness techniques, including eating exercises, mindful movement, self-kindness, and guided meditation, you will gain a deeper understanding of how to enhance the connection with the body and to develop self-regulation strategies.  

Over the course of the six weeks, you will learn how to:

  • Use your body’s cues to help guide your decisions to begin and stop eating;
  • Eat the foods you like without guilt and without overeating;
  • Replace self-criticism with self-nurturing, forgiveness and compassion;
  • Make mindful choices when experiencing food cravings;
  • How to stop using food to regulate our emotional states; and
  • Incorporate mindful eating into daily life so you can practice beyond the course.
