We seldom take the time to really gauge our hunger, focus on our food or even truly savour a few bites. As a result, we often eat when we’re not really hungry, and eat too fast, too much and too unhealthily.

Diets that teach us to restrict our calorie intake or eliminate certain foods have proven to be unsustainable. Around 95% of people who lose weight by dieting will regain it in one to five years, and our dieting can cultivate an unhealthy relationship to food.

About the Workshop:

This workshop focuses on the connection between mindfulness, food, eating and our relationship to our bodies. During the session, we will explore the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that are intertwined with how we relate to food and our bodies.

We will begin by centreing our attention to recognise our body's needs in the present moment. From here, we will explore all different types of hunger and observe how they are interwoven; including sight, nose and mouth, stomach, cellular, mental and emotional hunger.

The workshop teach you how to use your body’s cues to help guide your decisions to begin and stop eating, and ultimately how to eat the foods you like without guilt and without overeating. By learning how to replace self-criticism with self-nurturing, you’ll gain freedom from worries around food, eating and your body.

Once we've laid the foundation, the workshop will continue to explore the concept of mindful eating, what it is, what is not to and how we can grow the practice within us.

Participants will:

  • Discover the types of hunger and how we can arrive at satisfaction in both eating and life.
  • Explore what mindful eating is and what it is not.
  • Experience transition meditation to better understand hunger.
  • Learn how to make healthier food choices, instead of restricting ourselves through dieting.
  • Gain a sense of self-compassion and kindness around eating patterns.
