Event Details: Tasting Mindfulness: Eating with Awareness (and Potluck!)

Description: Tasting Mindfulness: Eating with Awareness (and Potluck!)

Time: Monday, December 9th, 6-9pm

Location: Thompson Hall 136
Do you ever wonder why diets don't seem to work for you? Do you multitask while you eat, perhaps answering emails, watching TV, or doing work, and before you know it, the food in the plate in front of you has vanished? Do you have a less than pleasant relationship with food? If any of this sounds familiar to you, and if you are interested in engaging with your food as something more than just fuel or energy for your body, then join on us for the Tasting Mindfulness Event.
On behalf of MEWG, Linda Buckley, a dietitian and educator, will speak to us on mindful eating. Using strategies derived from meditative practices, we will learn how to engage consciously with our food, hunger, and to make the experience of eating more fulfilling, healthy, and pleasurable as a whole.
Following the presentation will be a potluck dinner! All attendees are invited to bring a dish to our potluck dinner for us to enjoy together (just prepare or buy as much as you are able to!).
Please fill out the following form to RSVP for the event AND to tell us what you are bringing to the potluck: MEWG Potluck
