"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment." - Jon Kabat-Zinn
With the cultivation of present moment awareness we are able to see more clearly the changes that are needed and can make informed choices to do so. We find more peace and balance in each moment.

and Retreat Schedule 2012:
Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Retreat
Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California
Feb 24 - 26
Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller, addresses the mindless eating so prevalent in our culture, the type of eating that can lead to weight gain, obesity, disordered eating patterns, and stress-related eating.
In this highly participatory weekend, you can experience a new approach to eating, supported by NIH-funded research, that helps you cultivate your inner wisdom through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations. You will be shown how to eat in a way that is more attuned to your body's needs, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with eating. Outer wisdom—making personal use of current, scientifically-based nutrition and exercise guidelines—will also be explored. These tools can help you make informed, balanced, healthy choices in your life and be truly nourished by your food.
In addition to learning specific approaches to mindful eating, the workshop includes daily sitting meditations and gentle movement to bring awareness and deepen your understanding of mindfulness as it supports more balanced living.
No previous mindfulness meditation experience is required.
Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness: A Professional Training
Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California
March 18-23
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. This workshop for health-care professionals provides intensive training in the application of MB-EAT in clinical settings. Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) work, and the basic principles of food intake regulation, the 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. For those with a professional background treating eating issues and a substantive background in meditation practice, this program provides the necessary skills for delivery of the MB-EAT program. For those with less experience in these areas, it provides a substantial introduction to the issues and skills involved.
