Self-Led Eating Weekend Intensive

For therapists, nutritionists and health professionals. Enhance your work with individuals who suffer from emotional eating.
Self-regulated eating is eating with Calmness, Clarity, Confidence, Curiosity, Courage, a sense of Connectedness, Creativity and Compassion. Can you imagine that?
This experiential workshop, is an opportunity to internalize the essentials of a healthy relationship with food and body, and learn to guide others in the process.

* You will experience a cellular understanding that the body is Self-regulating.
* You will learn to differentiate nutritional from emotional hungers.
* Using the Internal Family systems approach, we will practice working with "resistance" to eating when hungry, eating what one is hungry for, and stopping at satiety. We will use the model to witness and release "diet" managers and firefighters from their extreme roles.
