Mindful Eating: A Group for Meal Support, Thursdays 6-7:15pm
Eating regular and healthy meals can be very difficult for those who struggle with issues such as Anorexia, Bulimia, or Emotional Binge Eating. The Mindful Eating Group is a safe place to be with others who share similar struggles with food. The group provides a supportive accepting atmosphere to explore ways to cope with life’s stresses and traumas without resorting to abusing food, as well as ways to change one’s relationship with food.
During the group, participants will learn to eat mindfully, increase awareness of bodily and emotional signals, become more present while eating, listen to the “underlying lesson” below every struggle, while also learning beneficial ways to cope with the stresses in everyday situations. Mindfulness exercises and group activities will be included along with sharing a meal together. Participants will also set their own goals and will progress at their own pace. They will bring their own food based on their goals and level of comfort.
Nutrition Counseling Group; Thursdays 7:30-8:45pm
This group is for individuals to struggle to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with food. In a safe and supportive environment, discuss your nutrition questions and concerns, begin to challenge your food thoughts, beliefs and fears, and gain an understanding of how to meet your nutrition needs each day.
Each meeting will have a specific focus, and members are encourage to ask questions and explore their feelings surrounding food and nourishing their bodies.
