A Well Nourished Life: Mindful Eating and Living
Course Description This course is designed for medical providers and healthcare professionals. During this 5 day retreat-like seminar we will explore together the elements of a well-nourished life in the beautiful setting of Umbria. Particular attention will be given to evidence-based tools and practices of mindful eating and living. You'll be able to immediately apply these tools in your own lives as well as with patients to help improve resilience, health and well-being and cultivate a more balanced, wiser, healthier relationship to food. Session themes and practices include cultivating foundational practices and qualities that enhance well-being in everyday life: meditation practice, mindful eating, movement and yoga, self-compassion, lovingkindness and how to stay present and embodied in the moment. We will work with difficult mind states and use the power of intention to create sustained and meaningful change. You will leave with a jewel box of practices to inform work with patients and your own self-care for a long time to come.
