    The intersection of mindfulness, eating and our relationship to food is the focus of this Mindful Eating/Conscious Living professional training. Inherent within that juncture are the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that impact how we relate to food and our body in skillful and unskillful ways.


    This training emphasizes experiential engagement in mindfulness meditation practices and mindful eating awareness exercises, so that the participants will be able to pass the benefit of these exercises on to clients and patients in a variety of settings. These practices and exercises are integral components of the eight-session Mindful Eating Syllabus designed by Bays and Wilkins, which provides the organizing structure for creating a program appropriate to the individuals and groups you serve. This training centers on building skills as you explore, experience and learn to teach core aspects of mindful eating

    Note: This is a required course for MECL Teacher Qualification or Certification. For more information: UC San Diego Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute

    Facilitators: Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins, MSW, LCSW

    The program will be led by experienced clinicians, mindfulness teachers and retreat leaders, Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins, LCSW. 

    Char is a MBSR teacher certified by the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA. Jan is a pediatrician and author of Mindful Eating, A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food. 


    The program draws from Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), current research, and the instructors' combined 26 years of experience working in public and clinical settings with a wide range of people with distressed eating patterns.


    Registration will be limited for this experiential program in order to cultivate an intimate, personal and highly interactive workshop environment.
