Mindful Eating Workshop with Lynn Rossy
What are you really hungry for? Is it food, happiness, or something else? In this unique book, mindfulness expert Dr. Lynn Rossy offers a proven-effective, whole-body approach to help you discover the real reasons why you’re overeating.
If you find yourself eating without thinking, because you feel bored or sad, or simply because you’ve had a hard day, indulging here and there is understandable. But emotional eating can often spiral out of control. By following the guidance in this book, you can learn how to listen to your body, heart and mind—guiding you towards health and happiness in all aspects of your life and without giving up your love for food. In fact, according to a recent study, women in the author’s Eat for Life program reported greater mindfulness, higher levels of body appreciation and intuitive eating, and lower levels of problematic eating behaviors than the wait list comparison group.
Lynn Rossy, Ph.D. is a health psychologist specializing in yoga and mindfulness-based interventions. She developed a ten-week, empirically validated Eat for Life class that teaches people to eat mindfully and intuitively, love their bodies, and find deeper meaning in their lives. Her book, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution, is based on the concepts in her program. Lynn is a long-time practitioner of mindfulness meditation and Kripalu yoga. She is the President of the Center for Mindful Eating.

Professional Workshop, Friday, Oct. 22: Exploring Mindful Eating: Research, Practice, and Application
Day One of Discover Mindful Eating is designed for professionals who work with clients with disordered eating and eating disorders (e.g., binge eating and bulimia nervosa). Learn about the research on the life-affirming practice of mindful eating, understand the philosophical underpinnings, learn how to introduce mindful eating and related practices to your clients, and practice mindful eating yourself. Specialized resources for ongoing support to you after the workshop will be provided.
Public Workshop, Saturday, Oct. 23: The Joy of Mindful Eating
In Day Two, open to both professional and public audiences, learn BASICS of Mindful Eating, a tool which can change the way you eat forever. Learn to use mindfulness to identify hunger and satiety, to soothe your emotions without food, to connect to your body with compassion, and to savor food for the greatest enjoyment. Largely experiential, this workshop will generate a greater appreciation for eating, feelings of gratitude for your body, and the desire to care for your body with joy.
