    About the Event

    Most of the research on Mindful Eating has been done with women, and most practitioners and teachers are most experienced serving females.

    Attend this session to learn how to make your content more gender inclusive and relevant to all people.

    We’ll review what the research shows, and where further inquiry is needed, as well as consider practical tips for connecting with ALL people.


    Learning Objectives

    1. Articulate the gaps in knowledge regarding how to serve people of all genders regarding Mindful Eating.
    2. Specify the reasons why we must ensure our content can resonate with men and non-binary people.
    3. Develop additional skills for how to ensure ME teachings can be relevant for all.

    Serie Educacional: Comunidad de Práctica

    SOBRE LA PRÁCTICA

    ¡Únete a nuestros encuentros virtuales de Práctica de Atención Plena y Compasión!

    El Centro para la Alimentación Consciente está comprometido con el desarrollo de una comunidad que comparte el objetivo común de cultivar al atención plena y compasión. Queremos crear un espacio y tiempo seguros donde puedas iniciar una práctica de atención plena, o profundizar en tu práctica actual, en compañía de personas de ideas afines.

    En el año 2023, vamos a hacer una serie de encuentros inspirados en las enseñanzas de Jack Kornfield y Tara Brach para integrar la práctica en nuestro día a día como un estilo de vida. 

    El camino hacia el cambio comienza al despertar al momento presente con conciencia. La práctica de la atención plena aborda un anhelo que todos compartimos; un deseo de estar centrado, de sentirnos como en casa con nosotros mismos y con los demás, de sentirnos cómodos en nuestra propia piel.

    Nuestra intención es la de apoyarte en el desarrollo de una práctica diaria para el cultivo de una mente en calma y apertura de corazón; una práctica que enriquecerá tu vida y la vida de todos los que toques.


    Cuando dejamos de tensarnos contra la vida,

    nos abrimos a una conciencia

    inmensamente grande y llena de amor.

    ~Tara Brach~

    Educational Series: Exploring Mindful Eating

    Personal enrichment webinars, suitable for those who wish to begin or maintain a mindful eating practice on a personal level. We created this series with the Personal Community Member in mind; however, Professional Community Members are welcome. No CE Credits.  


    * This Event has been postponed.*

    Date: Tuesday, March 21st, 2023

    Important Announcement:

    This registration is to receive the Recording Only. You will not receive the link to the live event. You will receive an email with a link to the recording and materials after the event, typically within 1-2 business days.


    About the Event

    In this participatory event Linn Thorstensson DipNT mNTOI will invite you to explore how giving us permission to eat foods, especially foods that you previously have forbidden or if you've had lots of food rules can change our relationship with food and eating.

    Together we will look at The Diet-Restrict-Binge Cycle, and how food rules can play a part in keeping this going and how permission can help get us out of it.

    We will explore common fears and beliefs around what might happen if you let go of food rules and restriction and we will talk about permission as an ongoing practice in our mindful eating journey.

    Attending live is highly recommended as this is an event that invites you to come with your own questions, lived experience and input.

    Learning Objectives

    • Discuss how giving ourselves unconditional permission to eat ALL foods have an impact on our relationship with food
    • The participants will learn how to apply this to their own lives going forward
    • The participants will be able to identify how having strict food rules and moving toward permission in their eating will impact their relationship with food.


    About the Presenter

    Linn Thorstensson, Dip NT mNTOI, is a registered Nutritional Therapist, based in Co.Cork Ireland, with a special focus on helping people heal their relationship with food and eating, through a mindful eating and self-compassionate approach. She is also a food blogger, recipe developer and photographer and a meditator. Linn holds a three year PGDip in Nutritional Therapy, certifications in mind-body medicine and Mindful Eating (MB-EAT).

    She is one of three directors for the board of Nutritional Therapists of Ireland and is excited to be part of the continuing growth of The Centre for Mindful Eating.

    When she is not found reading, writing or in clinic, she tries spending most of her time in nature, with her dogs, with friends and in deep conversations.

    About the Event

    Teaching meditation practices that cultivate mindfulness and mindful eating requires time, training, and personal experience with what you are teaching. The ability to teach these practices well comes, to a great extent, from your own time on the cushion, on the yoga mat, and at the table.

    But if that time is not paired with wise and clear understanding, you will not be prepared to meaningfully discuss your clients’ experiences and lead them to greater compassion and clarity—to their own inner wisdom.

    Join Dr. Rossy for an informal discussion and practice session on the art of inquiry. Inquiry is the conversation between teacher and client that ensues after a formal practice period. It is in this dialogue that clients learn to explore their own minds and bodies through the lens of mindfulness teachings.

    In this session, you will be given instructions on inquiry, lead a meditation and inquiry with another participant, and have time for Q & A about the experience.


    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify the three layers of questions to ask during inquiry.

    2. List three teachings from Buddhism that inform your ability to conduct inquiry.

    3. Demonstrate your understanding of inquiry after leading a meditation practice.



    About the Presenter

    Dr. Lynn Rossy is a health psychologist, author, and Kripalu Yoga and EMYoga (Energy Medicine Yoga) teacher. Her books include The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution: Proven Strategies to End Overeating, Satisfy Your Hunger, and Savor Your Life (2016) and Savor Every Bite: Mindful Ways to Eat, Love Your Body, and Live with Joy (2021). She developed and researched the successful Eat for Life Program for mindful eating at the University of Missouri—taught to hundreds of people around the world. After serving as President for many years, she now sits on the Advisory Council for The Center for Mindful Eating. She leads retreats, classes, and workshops on mindfulness, mindful eating, and yoga both nationally and internationally. She writes a regular blog called Tasting Mindfulness.
