Susan Zilberman

Learn how mindfulness and eating mesh to form the practice known as Mindful Eating or Mind Body Eating. Unlike diets in which certain foods are labeled “good” or “forbidden,” this practice doesn't judge you or the foods you choose. It revolves around personal growth and self-awareness. It fosters the connection between eating for fuel and for pleasure and explores the other ways we use food to deal with our feelings and to soothe ourselves.

During this four-week course, we will examine these relationships and the ways our Jewish culture, values, and traditions impact them. Learning with and from one another, we will cover topics such as curiosity, awareness, contemplation, meditation, and the rewiring of thoughts and beliefs. Together we will discover how tools and techniques of mindful eating help us heal our relationship with food, body image, and weight. By practicing these ancient mindfulness techniques, you will gradually become able to access your body wisdom and gain deeper self-understanding.

4 Thursdays, Feb 16–Mar 9, 7–8:30 pm, $120/$140
