by Dr. Susan Albers.

Dr. Albers is one of my favorite authors on mindful eating and emotional eating and I’m delighted that the idea has been suggested. This book and the practices involved can help us create a strong foundation for building a peaceful and healthy relationship between ourselves, our body and food.

We’ll get together for 3 Thursday Evenings from 7pm-8:30 pm 7/18, 7/25 and 8/15 at the tranquil Mayu Meditation Sanctuary on South Pearl Street.

Each session will involve discussion of the book and guided mindful eating and self soothing practices. Although it is not essential for you to read the book in order to attend, you may have a richer experience if you do. Here’s what we’ll do:
