Mindful Eating - Conscious Living is an eight-week mindfulness programme that will help you to establish a regular mindfulness practice, and help you to make better choices to manage your mood and stress levels.  In addition, you will also learn how to be less anxious and more at ease around food and eating.  Through practicing paying attention to the present moment, without judgement, we can cultivate the capacity to tune into the physical experience of eating and how it relates to our moods and emotions.  In time, we can regain our natural freedom around food and eating.
