  • 6-WEEK SERIES: The Art of Mindful Eating with Sara Teal

    • An exploration into our relationship with food.

    • What we eat, and the way we eat, can be one of the most uncomfortable (and sometimes painful) topics. If you struggle at all with food, this safe, compassionately led series may be a good group for you. You’ll learn what “type” of eater you are, and we’ll learn mindfulness techniques to create healthy and conscious choices. 

    • We’ll use a combination of book study, group discussion, and mindfulness practices, to help get to the root of your eating patterns, and to help create new habits & patterns. While this series is not focused on weight loss, often a side effect of mindful eating is to lose weight as habits change. Our focus is on how we eat & why we eat. Untangling the web of unhealthy thoughts and habits that can accumulate after years (or a lifetime), can lead to amazing and lasting change. 

    • Important note: I am not a dietitian. I am not qualified to teach nutrition, and that is not my goal (this is not a class on nutrition, it's a class on mindfulness). My expertise is in mindfulness practices, and the art of self-compassion. Through my own struggles with food, I’ve realized that the problem isn’t my “relationship with food”, like I often hear people say. But the root of the problem is my “relationship with myself”. And that’s what we’ll be discussing and working on, using the book “Eating Mindfully” as a guide with some very powerful tools. I hope you’ll join me.

      • Rebalance - help restore neurological balance and help the Autopilot reacquire connection to your center of gravity.

      • Rehydrate - restore hydration to the connective tissue.

      • Release - help to decompress the important joint spaces that get compressed from repetitive postures and movements.
