    Many people realize that they eat – or overeat – when they are feeling lonely, disappointed, or sad. Mindful eating can help us become aware of the true origin of hunger – whether we are physically hungry, or if the heart is hungry, that is, if the heart is longing for something that is not food.


    For Mindful Eating Day 2018, we will be hosting a series of interviews with mindful eating professionals to help us develop a sense of self-care, learn how to recognize heart or emotional hunger, find ways to satisfy it without eating, and reduce its frequency and intensity.


    We will be interviewing Kristin Neff, Lynn Rossy, Linn Thorstensson, Fiona Sutherland, Ronna Kabatznick, and Sharon Salzberg to help us mindfully deepen into these ways to work with our heart hunger, which reflects a need for intimacy and connection, especially with ourselves.


    When the urge to eat arises, we can check in with the body. If the body is not hungry, we can check in with the heart. If the heart is hungry, we can do one of the activities on the list. Call a friend, go for a walk in nature, have a hot bath, or meditate. Depending on where we are and how much time we have, meditating might consist of doing the body scan or a quick 3-Minute Breathing Space.     


    Join us on the 25th of January at 9 am and 2 pm (EST) for two broadcasts of conversations with mindfulness practitioners and pioneers in the field of mindful eating.


    Afternoon (2:00 PM EST) Session Registration:

    Leading up to the day of celebration, we'll be offering a month's worth of inspirational messages and reflections in our Mindful Eating Day 2018 Facebook Group. Join the conversation here!


    And, as we did last year, we are inviting mindful eating professionals around the globe to host their own local Mindful Eating Day celebrations in their communities and work places. Download the Mindful Eating Day Tool Kit for Professionals

    The BASICS of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series that takes you through the skills that you need to eat mindfully and provides a very useful tool for teaching others to eat mindfully. The BASICS of Mindful Eating is a component of the Eat for Life Program, developed by the presenter as a guide 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 to stop eating. Meditation practices and the BASICS of Mindful Eating will be offered as a home practice that you will do throughout the week. In the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you experienced with the practices. In addition, the overarching principles of mindful eating will be reviewed and discussed as they relate to both your personal and professional practice, emphasizing that we are always both a teacher and a student of mindful eating. Remaining fresh and current in your own life with the practice of mindful eating is a prerequisite for teaching it.


    Learning Objectives:

    • List three of the TCME principles of mindful eating

    • Name the six components of the BASICS of Mindful Eating

    • Practice mindful eating and list the personal discoveries over a week time period

    When what has been given to us is no longer taken for granted, then eating becomes a spiritual practice. During this presentation, we will learn a variety of ways to cultivate mindful reverence in our relationship with food.


    • Reconnecting with silence, inside and outside of us. In this deep stillness, there is space and a lightness of being. It is only when we pause mindfully that new and more wholesome ways of relating to food and ourselves are possible.


    • Knowing the history of the ingredients on your plate by tracing them back to their origins (meet and talk with farmers, winemakers or cheese producers).


    • Looking into the future and visualizing how the food will become soon part of the cells of your body or will nourish other living beings, such as birds or worms.


    • Being aware of the joy of giving and receiving. Feeling deep appreciation for all the efforts people and other living organisms have made in order to nourish us.


    • Waking up with all our senses to natural elements such as water, soil, sunshine, and fresh air, which contribute so much to our food, our bodies, and the environment. Taking a moment to contemplate and ponder the mystery of growth and life.


    • Setting a wholesome intention before eating to kindly invite the energy of compassion, joy, wisdom, trust, or mindful awareness.


    • Consciously honoring the sacrament of eating together by giving thanks for the delight of food and the presence of others.


    • Practicing detachment and equanimity by letting go of the “shoulds’ and “shouldn’ts”. Isn’t it the orientation of our heart and not how much or even what we eat that most matters?


    Participants will be able to

    • Describe how to create a sacred space around food and eating

    • Apply studies that link spirituality and food to their work

    • List different ways to cultivate gratitude in relationship with food
