    Bring a meal or snack chosen to satisfy your hunger as we practice mindful eating together during this monthly Conscious Café community practice. The one-hour practice includes guided invitations to cue back into one’s senses during the entire eating process with time to process and reflect on the experience. 

    Please note this is not a substitute for professional mindful eating intervention.  This is a taste of mindful eating practice for those interested in learning more.

    About the Event

    Navigating the complexities of supporting individuals within the weight-inclusive, non-diet paradigm poses a significant challenge for many practitioners. How do we effectively assist those who desire weight loss when it contradicts our core philosophy?

    Trained within a weight-centric framework, we may find ourselves unsure of how to provide meaningful support to clients seeking weight loss when we do not offer these services.

    Join us for a panel discussion featuring three experts representing diverse disciplines. They will share their personal journeys transitioning from weight-centric approaches to embracing weight-inclusive care. Additionally, they will offer practical strategies for navigating these delicate situations.

    By the end of this session, you'll feel empowered and equipped with a deeper understanding of how to provide compassionate, weight-inclusive care.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of this event, the learner will be able to:

    1. Discuss moving from a weight-centric model to a weight-inclusive approach.
    2. Demonstrate how to meet client needs and desires within a weight-inclusive approach.
    3. Explain how anti-fat bias and weight oppression can impact a client's desire for weight loss.
    4. Apply care-affirming support to people in all body sizes

    Body acceptance advocate Dr. Michelle Tubman, founder of Wayza Health, wages a powerful crusade against the prevalent unfair sizeism in our society via her podcast, Thrive Beyond Size. Her coaching programs are designed to liberate women form the dangerous diet culture dominating their lives ever since they were old enough to understand a world in which their weight determined their worth. A now reformed chronic dieter who struggled with shame and low self-esteem, Michelle set out to find the answers. She certified in eating psychology, intuitive eating, nutrition and binge eating treatment. As a physician, she is triple-board certified in emergency medicine, obesity medicine, and lifestyle medicine, where she strives to bring more awareness to the presence of weight stigma that runs rampant through healthcare systems today. Initially setting out in her coaching practice to advocate for safe, effective weight loss, Dr. Tubman eventually realized she was just perpetuating the problem by focusing on weight. The real issue was breaking women from shame and self-criticism and replacing their all-consuming obsession with weight with a peaceful, loving relationship with food and the permission to do, be, and have what they want now, at any size.
