Introduction

Mindful Eating is an eight-week programme, in which you will 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.

Structure

Content

If you are interested in attending the Mindful Eating course at UWE Bristol, you will be invited to attend an orientation session. This will tell you more about the course and answer any questions you may have.

It will also be an opportunity for you to experience a short practice in a small group environment which can help you assess whether this course is right for you at this time.

On booking, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. Your information will be kept confidential at all times, and will only be seen by the course leader. At the end of the course, your information will be confidentially destroyed.

Upon completion of your orientation session, you will be invited to formally register on the course and pay your course fees via the UWE Bristol WPM System.
