An in-depth look at why we eat, our habits, and the influences that affect how we eat.
Mindful Eating, Mindful Life has application in all parts of one’s life, not just around our consumption of food. The readings and tools are practical applications to support learning and mindful practice. The instructor, Brenda Fagan, created a safe place with her presence, kindness and compassion. I highly recommend this course.
More than just a class to help us eat more mindfully, Mindful Eating, Mindful Life is a great class for anyone interested in the topic, anyone with a desire to practice mindfulness in a new way and for anyone wanting to dust off or deepen their meditation practice. The course and materials may seem small, but they are so expansive. Thanks to Brittany for bringing this topic alive and for the school for providing such an amazing course in mindfulness.
I was reluctant to take this course [Mindful Eating: Mindful Life] as I have struggled with eating disorders since my teens. I didn’t want yet another “eating plan” that would add more clutter to my already busy thoughts about food. I honestly only took the class because it was required for PCC and I came in thinking that maybe I could learn something to help my clients. But honestly, I learned a ton about myself, my thoughts about food and eating, as well as many tools and ideas to use with my clients.
Mindful Eating: Mindful Life is more than just about food. It’s about our emotional responses to trauma and how we cope with them. The class was extremely beneficial and was a growing experience that will be a part of me the rest of my life.
Mindful Eating, Mindful Life is all about nourishment, energy, savoring and throwing away what doesn’t work for us in life. The course unfolds deep mindfulness about moments in time, decisions, weighing options, filling the void and emptying way beyond food.
