Mindful Eating Class Begins Jan 11

Integrative Health Partners' next class in Mindful Eating, taught by Mary Connors, Ph.D., will begin on January 11, 2012.  We know that the new year is a time in which we reflect on our goals and our health, and we want to provide this support for people who want to move in a positive direction around issues of eating, weight and nutrition.

Our mindful eating class is a six-week program.   In it, Dr. Connors will help you clarify your needs and goals and provide really useful information on eating, dieting, nutrition and psychology.  She will teach a variety of mindfulness techniques to help you find emotional balance and respond more effectively to the stresses that can trigger emotional overeating. This class can help you learn to be more aware of your real needs regarding food, and more capable of being truly self-nurturing. Mindfulness provides a way to actually be present with your eating, and so helps you experience greater enjoyment and reduces the ‘automatic’ nature of overeating problems.

The class is a great chance to learn to develop a mindfulness practice and to apply it to a really important area of daily life.  Be sure to call Mary if you are interested or have any questions: her phone is 312-372-5501.  You can also read more about our program on the Integrative Health Partners website.  You can also send an email through our Contact page.
