The registration Form is at the end of this page!

 

Why, how and what do we eat? If the answers to these questions come to you easily and clearly, congratulations! You have mastered one of the key ingredients of a fulfilled life. And you probably don’t need this workshop. If, however, like many of us, you don’t find it so easy to respond and it is just as difficult to define and keep a healthy relation to the act of eating, then this evening might be for you. 


What is mindful eating and what will happen?

Mindful eating is an efficient way to give our body the nourishment it needs, without restricting ourselves while fully experiencing the pleasure of eating.

This workshop will introduce you to a new perspective on how we eat, as a specific application of mindfulness. Among other things:

  • You can develop a better connection to your needs by listening to sensations of hunger in your body 
  • You can learn the difference between physiological and emotional hunger
  • You can tell the difference between good food and junk more easily
  • You can start a practice that will develop into a more balanced relationship to food and eating
During the workshop, Valérie and Yael will lead you through:
  • “Dive in” Mindfulness Practice
  • Introduction to essential aspects of Mindful Eating
  • Practice around food (food snack will be provided) 
  • Experience sharing
