The BASICS of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series which teaches you the skills you need to eat mindfully and provides a useful tool for teaching others. The BASICS of Mindful Eating is a component of the Eat for Life Program, developed by the presenter as a guide for each time you sit down to eat.
The steps of the BASICS take you from the pause before you eat to the point where you are guided internally to stop eating. Mindfulness meditation and movement practice are at the foundation of eating mindfully and will be taught and offered as a home practice for the week between sessions.
In the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you experienced with the practices. The overarching principles of mindful eating and research that highlights the benefits of mindful eating on emotional eating and binge eating will be reviewed. The necessity of deepening your mindfulness and mindful eating practice in order to teach it as well as supporting resources will be discussed.
