Mindful Eating Training - Retreats and Workshops


 CEU's or CPE's Available for most programs

Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller, addresses mindless eating, stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity through the application of mindfulness meditation. These workshops for health-care professionals provides intensive training in the application of MB-EAT in clinical settings.The online training emphasizes deepening your personal practice, facilitating basic mindfulness meditation, mindful eating practices and offers opportunities for clinical consultation during the program.

Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) work, and basic principles of food intake regulation, and supported by evidence from NIH-supported clinical trials MB-EAT program employs mindfulness meditation, experiential eating exercises, didactic instruction, and self-reflection to cultivate mindful awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight.

Throughout this training, we use demonstration, role-play, simulated exercises, and discussion to cover the themes, material, and exercises in the MB-EAT program. We also deepen our own mindfulness practice through daily meditation practice, eating meditations, body awareness and movement meditations, and a half-day silent retreat. 

48 CEU's credits have been pre-approved for Dietitians, Psychologists, Counselors/MFT, Social Workers, Nurses, and related fields.
