Attune to your body’s needs by developing a healthy relationship with food.
Through mindfulness, mindful eating and heart-based practices, we can cultivate the clear seeing, heartfulness, joy and ease that can help bring our eating and lives back into balance. In this retreat you will be gently challenged to explore what true nourishment is for you, how to discern what you are truly hungry for, and leave with a plan and practices to nourish your whole self in everyday living. We can experience food as pleasure and nourishment while finding our right relationship to amount and quality in each moment.
We will focus on cultivating mindful awareness and nourishing your body, heart and mind with an immersion in selected mindfulness, mindful eating and heart-based practices, including meditation, mindful walking and gentle yoga. We will also explore the roles of loving-kindness, self-compassion, nature awareness and healthy living guidelines in establishing a strong grounding for nourishment to balance your eating and living.
As the retreat concludes you will be skillful in identifying what you truly need and have an awareness of mindful eating, mindful living and self-compassion practices to integrate into your daily life and a plan to help support this process.
The retreat will be of special interest to those struggling with having a healthy relationship to food.
