With Orla Burchael & Shirley Roe, this is a 6 week Friday afternoon (plus one full Sunday on November 12th) course on mindful eating is about giving a gift to yourself – the gift of appreciating the food that you eat. When you are more aware of your relationship with food, you have more choice, more possibilities about what is nourishing for you.
When you learn more about nutrition and about how food is produced, you can grow to appreciate the wonders of nature and the interconnectedness of all things. When you learn mindfulness practices, you get to slow down and savour your food – and more of your life. You also learn to take a more compassionate stance towards yourself, your existing habits and triggers around what and when you eat.
Delivered jointly by professional nutritionist, Shirley Roe, and mindfulness teacher, Orla Burchael, the course is open to all. It draws on and interweaves the latest thinking in good nutrition with the growing body of work on mindful eating from teachers such as Thich Nhat Hanh and Jan Jan Chozen Bays.
While many mindful eating courses focus on weight loss, Food for Thought is about developing a new, refreshed and thoughtful relationship with this vital part of our lives (and we may even lose weight in the process!). And it’s an interesting and enjoyable way to learn mindfulness practices that you can bring to many different aspects of everyday life.
