Mindful Eating Update - What We've Been Up To

It seems like such a long time ago that the evenings were dark and stormy and we were running our February and March Mindful Eating course.  The course was wonderful with a lovely group (all women this time) who worked really hard for the six weeks and brought a sense of humour to some quite difficult topics. We were delighted that the course sold out, but the downside to this was that we had to turn a few people away who I hope will be able to join us next time (more of that later).

After the course I got stuck into a little project for Wiley Publishers to act as Technical Reviewing for an upcoming book on Mindful Eating, checking for factual errors, jargon and to check that the book is pitched appropriately. This was a great opportunity to go back to the evidence about what we actually know about the effectiveness for using mindfulness for eating.  The book is in a famous book series with a yellow cover, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to be part of a team working together to combine the "no nonsense" approach of the series with the kindness and self-compassion that is part of mindfulness.

In early June mindfulness teacher Alicia Gardner and myself ran a day of mindfulness practice for current and past course participants in the grounds of St Hugh's College. We were blessed with the most gorgeous summers day and Alicia and I made sure that we built in ample time for walking in the grounds, basking (mindfully) in the warmth of the sun and admiring the beautiful floral borders.  Our apologies to any students that we scared with our mindful walking practice - at first glance it can look a teeny bit like a zombie invasion.
