Our relationship to food is a central one that reflects our attitudes toward our environment and ourselves. As a practice, mindful eating can bring us awareness of our own actions, thoughts, feelings and motivations, and insight into the roots of health and contentment.
The Center for Mindful Eating is a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit, established in May 2006. Our desire is to be a place of conversation, networking, and learning for professionals and individuals to explore and learn how to apply mindfulness practices to their relationships with food and eating.
To be an effective, accessible vehicle for training professionals in the principles and practices of mindful eating and to foster wisdom, mindfulness and ethical action in education, policy, research and healthcare, pertaining to food and eating.
The mission of The Center for Mindful Eating, also known as TCME, is to help people achieve a balanced, respectful, healthy and joyful relationship with food and eating. By providing an easily accessible source of information and opportunities to interact via the web and in other ways, we seek to train and encourage professionals who can then foster this capacity in others.
We are primarily funded by our members who pay annual dues, or who, during our 10th Anniversary Celebration year, became lifetime members. We offer regular webinars and teleconferences to the public for which we ask for donations. We also provide webinars and teleconferences for professionals that offer continuing education credits for therapists and dietitians.
