Suffering is part of our daily existence yet through habit, we constantly push the unpleasant feelings away by seeking comfort in food. We seek sustenance, but in fact, the feeling of satisfaction, and the comfort that arises from it, is fleeting. It actually cannot be sustained. So what we consider both suffering and sustenance are actually part of each other. Within the experience of sustenance lies the feeling of suffering. And within suffering is also the possibility of sustenance.

Participant goals:

  • What are sustenance and suffering as they relate to mindful eating?
  • What are the three types of suffering?
  • How can we skillfully related to suffering and sustenance from a mindful eating perspective
