In the spring of 2023, The Center for Mindful Eating (TCME) Board of Directors met for a week-long Annual Meeting with the goal of developing a strategic plan to guide the organization through the coming years. Input from TCME members was instrumental in shaping these discussions and the decision-making process. What became clear was a need to pause and refocus the organization through the development of an updated mission and vision, along with key strategic objectives to support these changes. We believe that grounding Mindful Eating as a compassionate and liberatory practice is central to this transformation.
As of the Fall of 2023, The Center is currently working towards adopting the final drafts of the revised mission, vision, values, and strategic initiatives as shared below.
Our Mission (Draft)
We aim to be a global organization in mindful eating that offers high-quality training and programs to diverse and interdisciplinary populations, based on scientific research and ancient wisdom. TCME is committed to building an equitable, inclusive, compassionate community supporting professionals practicing and teaching mindful eating.
Our Vision (Draft)
We envision a world where all persons are treated with dignity and compassion and have the freedom to cultivate a peaceful relationship with food and body through the practice of mindful eating.
Our Values (Draft)
Liberation | Compassion | Inner Wisdom
Belonging | Nourishment
Our Strategic Objectives (Draft)
These core objectives represent how the Center for Mindful Eating aims to work towards achieving this new vision and mission while upholding our values.
