Have you ever said to yourself or heard your clients say things like:
These are examples of powerful forces of desire in the mind that everyone experiences. They are common to mindful eating, not rare or unusual. But when we do not see these forces desire clearly, they derail our skillful desires to be present with our direct experience, whether it is eating a blueberry, washing a dish or standing on line in a supermarket. Becoming consumed by desire like greed, anger or irritation is not the problem, it is the lack of awareness that keeps us tangled in judgment and despair. This two-part teleconference addresses the common obstacles to mindful eating and how to skillfully work with each one of them as they arise in our mindful eating practices, so we can deepen our awareness into the dynamics of desire that are not only part of our mindful eating practice, but integral to our common humanity.
