Recording Only | Cultivating Presence as a Mindful Eating Professional

About the Event

The ability to effectively teach mindful eating rests largely on the time invested to cultivate our own personal practice on the mat, cushion, and around the table. Mindful Eating Professionals without a deep understanding of the practice will find engaging in meaningful discussions with their clients about their experiences challenging. Through the practice of embodiment, we are better equipped to guide clients toward a deeper understanding of their inner experience and to connect with their innate wisdom.

In this workshop, we will explore various facets of cultivating, refining, and embodying our mindful eating practice before and during a client or group session. We will begin by preparing to meet clients with a compassionate attitude and immersing ourselves in the curriculum. We will then explore ways to create a supportive environment when working with clients so they can connect to their experiences, inner wisdom, and the hurdles posed by conditioned beliefs and entrenched habits.

Participants are urged to nurture and embody their compassionate presence before arriving to create a supportive atmosphere for others during the workshop.

Learning Objectives:
    1. Describe ways to cultivate a personal practice
    2. Create a plan to prepare body and mind for class
    3. Identify the different components of embodiment
