About the Event

People often ask about the difference between mindful eating and intuitive eating, as if knowing the answer would help them determine which practice will get the best results. Both the question and the underlying desire point to one of the main cognitive distortions people use that struggle with food and their bodies--namely, all-or-nothing, right or wrong, this or that. In my experience of teaching both mindful eating and intuitive eating, there are notable differences and similarities. I see them as kindred spirits with practices that complement and support each other. Knowing and understanding both can lead to a beautiful relationship with food and body, as well as to the rest of your life. In this webinar you will learn the principles of each practice, an expanded view of mindful eating through the lens of mindfulness itself, and how the skill of mindful awareness is the underlying key that unlocks the benefits of both.

Learning Objectives

  1. List the 4 four foundations of mindfulness
  2. List the 10 principles of intuitive eating
  3. List 3 common misconceptions about mindful eating
