Description

Mindful Eating: Joyful Eating, Balanced Eating With Jean Kristeller, ISU Professor Emerita

Cost:  Free

Mindful eating helps us connect our eating with the needs of our body and mind. This program will introduce the basic concepts of mindful eating: learning to become more aware of our experiences of hunger, fullness and taste, to create a better relationship with food and with our bodies. The program will include experiences in mindfulness practice and in mindful eating. You¹ll learn how to eat less -- and enjoy it more!

Jean Kristeller is Professor Emerita in the Dept. of Psychology, Indiana State University, and has received mul-tiple NIH-funded grants to study mindful eating. She lectures and teaches nationally and internationally about her work. She is the author of the book "The Joy of Half a Cookie: Using Mindfulness to Lose Weight and End the Struggle with Food."
