Presented by Lynn Rossy, Ph.D.
The Basics of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series that discusses the Principles of Mindful Eating developed by TCME and the BASICS of Mindful Eating, a component of the Eat for Life Program developed by the presenter as a guide each time you sit down to eat. As a Mindful Eating Teacher it is important to know and understand the overarching principles so that you reflect those in your professional and personal practice of mindfulness. Meditation practices and the BASICS of Mindful Eating will be offered as a home practice that you will do throughout the week. Then, in the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you learned. Each one of us is both a teacher and a student of mindful eating. Remaining fresh and current in your own life with the practice of mindful eating is a prerequisite for teaching it.
- List three of the TCME principles of mindful eating
- Name the 6 components of the BASICS of Mindful Eating
- Practice mindful eating and list personal discoveries over a week time period
