Food that is rich in nutrients is wealthy food. It can be our best friend and provides us with energy in the best of circumstances. When we are less stressed, we operate at a higher level of awareness, sense, and taste. We can have a relationship with food that is healthy, wealthy and wise.
Our program focuses on awareness, fullness, sense of taste, satiety, quality of food, quantity, to get the pleasure we want from eating without the guilt.
This program was originally funded and supported by the National Institute of Health (NIH) to address mindless eating, stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity. Through the application of mindfulness meditation, we make a difference in how we relate to food and life. Our program is for anyone that might find that they need to practice more mindfulness around food, or desserts that cause them issues, either physically or psychologically. You can take this program with a group, or as an individual.
Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) work, and principles of food intake regulation, our Eating Awareness Instruction program employs mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, didactic instruction, and self-reflection to cultivate mindful awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship with eating and weight. This program is taught by Keith Fiveson, a Certified MB-EAT facilitator.
