Event description

Description

The Finding Freedom Workshop will help you get to the root of what's triggering your behaviours and ultimately repair your relationship with food, your body and yourself, through the act of connecting, sharing, expressing, releasing and celebrating. In this 4 hour workshop, you can expect to kick-start the journey to repairing your relationship with food and regaining your mental clarity, alongside a group of 20 like-minded women to ultimately craft a supportive, uplifting and safe environment. This includes diving into our emotional vulnerabilities, peeking into our personal histories with food, and leaning into a healing relationship with our bodies and minds.

Through the use of clinically informed therapeutic interventions and foundational knowledge in nutrition, the Finding Freedom Workshop is designed to support you in gaining self-awareness, promoting an understanding of the healing benefits of food, and how to cope with triggers and emotions that create discomfort and may lead to emotional eating, disordered eating or contribute to a complex relationship with food.

Our Special Guest, Allie Sommerville, Culinary Holistic Nutritionist, will be leading participants through a fun cooking demonstration aimed towards restoring our love in the kitchen, and fuelling us with nutrient-dense foods that promote optimal mood, including her Decadent Guilt-Free Chocolate Sauce, Raw Gut-Healing Kimchi Collard Wraps and a Nourishing Golden Milk.

What to expect out of the workshop:

  • Learn how to define health on your terms

  • Develop a list of flexible food values and gentle food guidelines unique to you

  • Learn foundational knowledge around emotional and disordered eating and mental health

  • Reflect on your current coping strategies, patterns, and self-talk

  • Establish new coping skills to support a consistent positive mood

  • Connect with a like-minded community of women that support your goals and values

  • Education around nutrition to support mental health and clarity

  • Learn how to honour your hunger and adopt intuitive eating skills

  • Discover the foods that support optimal mental clarity, wellness or mood through a hands-on cooking demonstration

This workshop is for you if you:

  • Never want to diet again

  • Want to stop turning to food to soothe your emotions

  • Want to stop living life by numbers on nutrition labels and by the scale

  • Struggle with body image issues and want to learn how to love the skin you’re in

  • Want to feel in control of food (and your life)

  • Want to learn how to recognize and cope with emotions

  • Have a destructive relationship with food and your body that you want to repair

  • Want to establish a healthy relationship with food

  • Are curious about how nutrition can support your mood

  • Are a parent who wants to model healthy coping strategies to your children

  • Are ready to fall in love with yourself and your body

A colourful and delicious lunch will be provided. You will also walk away with a swag bag with goodies from our various partners to help support you as you continue your healing journey.
