    Thursday January 24th

    9:00 AM-10:00 am est and 1:00 Pm - 2:00 pm EST (time zone converter)

    We invite you to participate in our fifth annual Mindful Eating Day.  Mindful Eating Day was established to counter the avalanche of diet-culture influenced messaging that can bury a person in guilt, shame and blame.  It's held in January, when diet-culture messaging is at a peak, to offer an alternative approach of self-care and kindness.

    This year’s theme, Stepping into Mindful Eating, will introduce mindful eating as a practice to be present, aware and compassionate when engaging in activities surrounding food and eating.  Mindful Eating Day will consist of two webinar broadcasts of conversations with mindfulness practitioners and pioneers in the field of mindful eating. There will be opportunity for questions.

    Speakers include:

    • Marcella Cox, Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, Mindful Self Compassion Instructor, & Daring Way™ Facilitator
    • Jan Chozen Bays of Mindful Eating-Conscious Living (ME-CL)
    • Megrette Fletcher, Diabetes educator and mindful eating author TCME Founder

    • Fiona Sutherland of Body Positive Australia
    • Lynn Rossy of Eat for Life

    In this two part series, we will explore foundational practices needed to become an embodied practitioner of mindful eating. To be the most effective and authentic mindful eating practitioner, we must learn and embody the practice from inside out before teaching others.

    Being a practitioner calls upon us to intimately understand the practice of mindfulness and how this applies to eating, as well as to our own and our clients’ inner landscape. It encompasses cultivating and practicing a wise relationship to our bodies, mind, and heart leading to greater equanimity and joy. Embodied practice includes practicing self-compassion, and leads to clear seeing of the inner and outer skills and tools that support mindful choices.

    Learning Objectives Part 1    

    • Describe qualities and skills necessary for the mindfulness-based practitioner for the effective delivery of mindfulness and mindful eating skills and tools to clients.
    Learning Objectives Part 2
    • Describe the role of embodied mindful practice, including qualities of non-judgement and self-compassion for utilizing mindful eating tools and skills effectively in daily life.


    Andrea has trained thousands of health care practitioners in evidence-based protocols of mindful eating, such as MB-EAT, and more recently the Well Nourished Approach, laying the foundation for embodied practice, balanced living and becoming a positive change agent in this world.

    Continuing Education credits provided TCME.

    This program will meet twice for a total of 2 hours and will be recorded. Two (2) CE/CPE for nutritionists and dietitians will be provided by TCME following completion of the post-test survey and evaluation.

    TCME is also a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited Provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). TCME maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

    Stress and Binge Eating,

    Mindfulness-based Intervention, Effects, and Metabolic Health


    Presented by Rachel M. Radin, PhD and Elissa Epel, PhD

    Stress and binge eating contribute to poor metabolic health, and may therefore be potential intervention targets. Mindfulness training may reduce stress and binge eating. We aimed to understand the role of stress and binge eating in metabolic health, and whether mindfulness may buffer these associations. 

    Those with greater stress and binge eating may reduce their risk for metabolic decline by receiving mindfulness training. Future obesity interventions should consider tailoring treatment towards trait-level characteristics, such as binge eating. 

    Rachel Radin, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, Center for Health and Community. She is also a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of California. Her research interests include clarifying the biopsychosocial processes that contribute to eating behavior and metabolic health in adults.

    She received an F32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) to investigate the impact of a mindfulness intervention (SHINE trial) on stress-related eating and endocrine and autonomic profiles of stress reactivity.

    Rachel aims to ultimately develop complementary and integrative health interventions to improve the health of individuals with obesity and other healthrelated conditions. 


    Elissa Epel, Ph.D, is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, at University of California, San Francisco. Her research aims to elucidate mechanisms of healthy aging, and to apply this basic science to scalable interventions that can reach vulnerable populations. She is the Director of the Aging, Metabolism, and Emotions Center, and the Consortium for Obesity Assessment, Study, & Treatment, (COAST), and Associate Director of the Center for Health and Community.  She studies psychological, social, and behavioral pathways underlying chronic psychological stress and stress resilience that impact cellular aging. She also studies the interconnections between stress, addiction, eating, and metabolic health.

    Her research has been featured in venues such as TEDMED, NBC’s Today Show, CBS’s Morning Show, 60 minutes, National Public Radio, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wisdom 2.0, Health 2.0, and in many science documentaries. She co-authored "The Telomere Effect" (2017) with Elizabeth Blackburn, a NYT bestseller under the category of Science.

    Mindful Eating at Work


    PRESENTED BY LYNN ROSSY, PHD


    Tuesday March 20,12:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)


    Free and Open to all, Donations welcomed!

    Most workplaces are not conducive to eating mindfully. In fact, the current way of doing business is to sit at our desks for eight hours without even getting up for lunch away from the computer. The toll this takes on our minds and bodies is huge. In fact, not exercising and eating unhealthily are linked with large reductions in productivity at work.

    In addition, there is no evidence that coercive or financially-based wellness programs focused on weight issues (i.e. weight loss programs) work to improve eating by employees. But ample evidence exists that they are not only morale-reducing and an expensive distraction from the business of business, but result in negative health outcomes.

    In this webinar, you will learn to recognize some of the common problems in eating mindfully at work, learn tips for becoming a more mindful eater, and learn strategies for creating a healthy food environment for all your employees.

    Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is an author and health psychologist who specializes in offering mindfulness-based interventions for eating, stress, and work-life balance. She became the Director of Integrated Wellness at Veterans United after spending much of her career at the University of Missouri System.

    She developed an empirically validated mindfulness-based intuitive eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She published the concepts from the program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution (New Harbinger, July 2016).

    Her greatest passion is helping people find delicious ways to eat and move their bodies, while discovering greater meaning and purpose in life.

    Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating Habits:

    Finding balance through mindful eating

    Presented by Caroline Baerten, MA, RD

    For several decades the interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. The past ten years there is a new wave in research were mindfulness and compassion-based interventions receive more attention. Along with this, mindful eating became an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.

    In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits. These meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week. It is recommended that health professionals only offer mindfulness exercises if they practice these skills and embody mindful living themselves.

    In part one of the series, we offer a framework that will provide participants with a better understanding of eating disorders from mindful eating perspective, a resume of up-to-date research, the preliminaries to work with patients with eating disorders, and the benefits.

    In the second part of the series, there is time for sharing and an opportunity to learn from each other what they’ve noticed in the past week. There will be further deepening of the mindful eating-based model for individuals with eating disorders (working with resistance, self-criticism, shame, difficult emotions). 

    Caroline Baerten is the founder of MeNu, Centre for Mindful Eating and Nutrition, in the heart of Europe (Brussels).

    She works as a Mindfulness-based nutritionist/RD, integrative psychotherapist and is also a qualified chef. She is the first certified Mindful Eating, Conscious Living teacher (ME-CL) worldwide and offers additionally Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Self-Compassion courses to her clients.

    Since 2012 she has created an international platform for mindful eating teachers in Europe. In her institute, mindful eating training programs are facilitated for European healthcare professionals and mentoring in mindful eating is offered through e-coaching.
