Our relationship to food is a central one that reflects our attitudes toward our environment and ourselves. As a practice Mindful Eating can bring us awareness of our actions, thoughts, feelings and motivations, and insight into the roots of health and contentment. The Center for Mindful Eating (TCME) helps professionals and institutions implement principles and practices of Mindful Eating into their professional work by offering principles of mindful eating, teleconferences, handouts, notices of mindful eating trainings and workshops by TCME board members for professionals.
One of these teleconferences, entitled “The Role of the Inner Critic in Out-of-Balance Eating” will be presented by Jan Chozen Bays, M.D., author of the book “Mindful Eating”, on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at 2:00PST/5:00EST. Dr. Bays notes that “The Inner Critic is a voice that criticizes us from within. When it invades the realm of eating, it can cause a great deal of confusion and distress.” She will discuss how to recognize and antidote the Inner Critic so that eating can become mindful, enjoyable and balanced again. There will be case examples and time for questions.
Jan Chozen Bays and her colleague, Char Wilkins, are co-leading a 5-day professional training in Northern California entitled “Mindful Eating, Conscious Living” on October 2-7, 2012. This highly experiential training is sponsored by the UCSD Center for Mindfulness and promises to provide a tremendous opportunity for any professional who works with the issues of food, eating and weight, to fully delve into the topic of mindful eating.
