Friends, I am so very excited to bring you this training about “Mindful Eating.” Our Contributing Expert Dawn Hopkins is, among other things, a Licensed Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Facilitator.
“Mindful eating”? What the heck is THAT?
From the Am I Hungry? website:
You were born with a natural, instinctive relationship with food.
As a young child, you knew when you were hungry and when you were full.
You ate what you loved without guilt. And when you were done eating, food was no longer your focus. You turned your attention to playing, exploring, and growing while your body used the fuel for energy.
Along the way, you probably picked up messages about food and your body from family, friends, healthcare, and the media. For example, you were told that certain foods are “bad,” and when you eat them, you are “bad” too.
Instead of play, exercise became punishment for eating or for earning the right to eat. Your body was somehow wrong, creating an intense longing to change it to earn acceptance and approval.
This set you up for a life-long pattern we call the eat-repent-repeat cycle.
It’s time to heal your relationship with food.
When you stop obsessing about food and your body and heal your relationship with food, you free your energy to live the big, vibrant life you crave!
Dawn is a world-class “trainer of trainers” in the yoga community. But she’s also passionate about the way the Am I Hungry? Program helped her change her relationship with food and heal deep-seated issues from an eating disorder. As a breast cancer survivor herself, she wants to bring what she’s learned to our community! We will have an ongoing focus about this topic in our private support groups. Please join us—we’re waiting for you!
