Virtual Event: Mindful Eating (Day 2)

Things To Know

Many people have been experiencing Covid 15 — the 15 extra pounds some have packed on their bodies since the start of the pandemic. Would you like to explore your relationship with food through a compassionate and caring lens? Translate your self-judgment into your feelings and needs and deepen your connection with yourself? As human beings, when we hear someone bossing us around even if the boss is our own inner critic, we resist what the boss is telling us. We all long for choice and autonomy and to know our needs matter. Learn to be your own best friend and tame the inner critic. In the second part of this exploration, we will prepare a food item together in our separate kitchens and practice awareness through a conscious eating exercise and examine our pantries. We will play with getting our emotional needs and our body’s needs met at the same time.
