Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) Retreat
Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller, addresses the mindless eating so prevalent in our culture undefined the type of eating that can lead to weight gain, obesity, disordered eating patterns, and stress-related eating.


In this highly participatory weekend, you can experience a new approach to eating, supported by NIH-funded research, that helps you cultivate your inner wisdom through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations. You will be shown how to eat in a way that is more attuned to your body's needs, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with eating. Outer wisdomundefinedmaking personal use of current, scientifically-based nutrition and exercise guidelinesundefinedwill also be explored. These tools can help you make informed, balanced, healthy choices in your life and be truly nourished by your food.

In addition to learning specific approaches to mindful eating, the workshop includes daily sitting meditations and gentle movement to bring awareness and deepen your understanding of mindfulness as it supports more balanced living.
No previous mindfulness meditation experience is required.
This workshop offers credits for psychology, LCSWS and MFTs, nurses, registered dietitians.
