Event description

Description

"…let’s remember that when it comes to healing, our symptoms and negative behaviours don’t want to be fixed, they want to be heard. They want to have space. They want to be honored and explored in their complexity, and in their divinity. From this space of radical acceptance, unconditional love, and genuine curiosity, magic happens…" Marc David, The Institute for the Psychology of Eating

Each day – each time we feed ourselves – each time we look for pleasure or soothing – each time we find our self-critical voice taking over is an opportunity to practice a new way. A more compassionate way.

It takes courage to let go of what isn't working.

It takes courage to reconnect with yourself, your innate wisdom, your body wisdom, and the part of you that is longing for unconditional love, acceptance, kindness and compassion.

When you do that, you can start to let go of negative coping patterns, self-defeating behaviours and self-critical, shame based thinking.

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning about the latest compassionate mind research and practices around struggles with food and body image. You will learn practical skills you can use immediately to soothe yourself, nourish yourself and tame that hungry ghost within.

The morning will be an introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion core skills - skills you can use everyday to calm that inner critical voice, tame the hungry ghost within and rediscover a kinder, gentler and more loving relationship with yourself. Lunch will be provided and it will be an opportunity to explore both Mindful Eating and Kindful Eating. The afternoon will look at the latest Mind-Body Nutrition principles - cutting through the deluge of conflicting information and offering you a path to Kindful Eating.

Victoria Pawlowski is an Eating Psychologist, Clinical Counsellor, Registered Dietitian and Holistic Nutritionist who integrates over 30 years of training and experience to offer this integrative, progressive approach to struggles with food, body image, weight imbalance and health.
