This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Imagine your life without struggle around cravings, emotional eating, and healthy lifestyle choices. If eating is not joyful, you may want to heighten your awareness to your biochemical, emotional, and spiritual needs. This workshop will guide you in awakening and connecting to your emotional and physical needs through the Nonviolent (Compassionate) Communication process and nutritional balancing, both of which can powerfully influence your desires, urges, and habitual behaviors. We will analyze participants' physical and emotional symptoms that may have origins in nutrition and utilize a variety of modalities including gentle breathing practices to change the energetic patterns of urges and cravings. We invite you to bring joy into your eating experience. In this workshop you can explore the following topics:
· Speak authentically and explore how this can shift your energy and metabolism
· Practice saying “no” to others and “yes” to your needs
· Describe the nutritional imbalances impacting your moods and appetite
· Summarize the needs of your inner critic
· Recognize which fats promote health, curb appetite, and burn fat
· Discuss your unique needs for nourishment
· Sample nourishing and satisfying snacks
($20 materials fee paid directly to the leader)
