Event Dates:ย Self-paced, the month of June 2020


Mindful eating changes how the brain works by changing neural pathways that can transform your mind, health, and life! Now you can learn about mindful eating from the comfort of your home. You can join Megrette Fletcher, M.Ed, RD, CDE and Kathleen Costello, MS, DC, two mindfulness professionals, as they describe a way to bring mindfulness from an abstract idea to your next meal. Learn how to use mindfulness with food and movement using 2500-year-old wisdom from the Buddhist tradition by participating in this self-paced online retreat.

Experience how any meal can become a centering act, nourishing the body in ways that go beyond the nutrients on the plate. The online retreat will allow you to practice being mindful with food, engage in movement to support self-care, self-kindness, health, joy, and peace.

This program discusses three common obstacles to mindfulness and mindful eating and provides three helpful tools to overcome them. It is open to anyone interested in cultivating mindfulness in daily life, around food and eating, and movement in particular. Experience of mindfulness meditation or yoga is not necessary for participation.
