Mindful Eating

8-Week Program at the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness

Would you like to have a new relationship with your food and quality of life for 2017?

While exploring Mindful Eating you will become aware of the positive and nurturing opportunities that are available through food preparation and consumption by respecting your own inner wisdom. You begin to choose and eat food that is both pleasing and nourishing to your body by using all your senses to explore, savor and taste. You become aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decisions to begin eating and to stop eating.

Participating in our Mindful Eating program you will learn how to cultivate mindfulness through deliberately paying attention while letting go of self-critical judgment. As a result of your mindfulness practice you will clearly see your responses to the food you eat (likes, neutral, or dislikes.). These insights promote balance, choice, wisdom, and acceptance and have the ability to transform your whole relationship with your food and the quality of your life.

Mindful Eating BookAll attendees will receive a free copy of the book Mindful Eating: A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food by Jan Chozen Bays. This wonderful book, which forms the basis of the program, also includes a CD with guided mindfulness practices.
