About the Event:


Prior to the current state of the union many individuals had not given thought or insight to their evolving relationship with food. There have been many medical interventions in support of weight management and/or weight loss, however, mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) and mindful eating practices are becoming a prominent method of addressing eating patterns. This educational & experiential presentation aims to allow attendees to experience MBSR practices in support of cultivating their individual forms stability or grounding during high crises times and the stress response pat- terns with use of food. 

Presentation Objectives: 

    1) Defining what mindful eating is and how it can support in alleviating anxiety/stress as it relates to our relationship with food

    2) Identifying how experiencing our environment via other senses shapes different relational parts with eating

    3) Enhancing ways to incorporate informal/formal mindfulness practices throughout the day in support of alleviating anxiety/stress as it relates to our     

        relationship with food
