Food is a nutritional support system for any organism. In this workshop we were exploring the art of eating mindfully for self-nurturing, our relationship with food, and re-situate our need of self-nourishment. We aim to discover gratitude for the abundance of food and connect to all living beings that are bringing food onto our tables. Mindful Eating is about restoring a more happy and healthier relationship with food. It is not directed by charts, tables, pyramids, scales or an expert. In the process of learning to eat mindfully, we replace self- criticism with self-nurturing, anxiety with curiosity, and shame with respect for our own inner wisdom. Exploring how to nourish mindfully means taking a look at the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that we engage at the meal and in our entire life
