A Morning Of Mindful Eating (online)

Teacher: Xenia Ayiotis
Cost: Donation to support the BRC during the COVID-19 lockdown
Dates: Sunday 24 January 2021 - Sunday 24 January 2021

xenia ayiotis 2019Food and eating can be a source of great joy, but it can also be a source of suffering. The pandemic has brought up challenges and many people have been turning to food for comfort. Mindful Eating increases our awareness around why, what, when and how we eat in a curious and non-judgemental way. The intention is to use a non-judgemental and compassionate approach to re-learning internal physical and emotional cues to guide us to why we eat and how we eat.

In "A Morning of Mindful Eating”, we will look at:

What exactly is Mindful Eating?
How could you benefit from it?
Introducing some Mindful Eating tools and practices.

09:00 - 9:30 Arrival, Introduction and meditation
9:30 - 11:00 An Introduction to Mindful Eating, Tools and Practices
11:00 -11:30 Questions and closing meditation

Join us on Zoom for a mini introduction to Mindful Eating and gently explore your relationship with food and eating.

Please bring raisins and a piece of bread to be used as part of the practices.

Sunday 24 January| 2.5 hours | 9:00-11:30am Register
