Eating Mindfully can help us change our relationship to food, breaking the cycle of dieting once and for all. We become aware of what we are putting in our mouth and what healthy choices we are making for our bodies. We become curious about why we are eating and whether it is for emotional reasons or really hunger? We can also pay attention to when we are full or if we just eat to finish everything we have prepared. Self-Inquiry is a good mindful eating practice which can help one to understand situations and feelings that can inform their current eating habits. Mindful eating can help tell us a lot about our moods and help in determining a diet that’s best for you.  Learn to experience the Joy of Eating in a new way.

Part of the Mindfulness Series:


Mindfulness  means being present in each moment, exactly the way it is, without  judging the experience but rather investigating it with curiosity.
In this Mindfulness 3 part series, we will dive deeper into the understanding of habitual life patterns, how they are formed and why they arise.
We will question habitual  patterns of eating.

We will gain appreciation for body movement and our feet.

We will notice communication breakdown due to habitual reactions of speaking and “not really listening”. 

Bringing attention to these practices helps us slow down and become filled with gratitude for the action we are doing rather than the emotional experience.  These practices are just some of many ways to bring Mindfulness into our daily lives and it’s more important to practice embodying them rather than just “doing” them.
