Product Details

There is more to mindful/conscious eating than just slowing down, paying attention and chewing ten times.

Watch this seminar recording and take home a highly experiential, clinically eclectic mix of conscious eating skills designed to broaden the definition of mindful eating beyond the “raisin meditation.”

The recording will culminate with motivational enhancement training through a development of a personalized philosophy of eating designed to help your client (and you!) anchor your eating habits in your existential and life values.

This practical and popular seminar recording is based on Pavel Somov’s program of awareness-building and habit-modifying mindful practices to overcome overeating one meal at a time described in his book, Eating the Moment.

Who Ate My Happiness: Mindful Eating Koans

A koan is a kind of question used as a training device in the Buddhist tradition, designed to help the aspirant attain a degree of clarity. I'm sure you've come across these zany questions before ("What's the sound of one hand clapping?" or "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?").

Here's an emotional eating koan for you to meditate on...

Who ate my happiness?

Beloware the previous eating koans that Iposed:

What is your mind full of when you feel empty?

Does food have a taste when it is eaten without awareness?

What do you think?
