A 2-Session Online Workshop on Intuitive Eating as a Path to Mindful Wellness
The diet industry is a $72.2 billion dollar per year industry that expertly targets and amplifies our insecurities in order to sell their programs and products. Inundated by photoshopped illusions of seemingly perfect bodies coupled with secret elixirs that promise perfect health and longevity, we can become victims of a false narrative that leaves us perpetually dissatisfied and stressed out. Join Monika Ostroff, MEDA Executive Director to debunk diet myths and open to nourishing possibilities.
Session 1 – Reclaim Your Inner Wisdom
Tuesday, September 21 at 7:30 pm
What exactly is diet culture and how pervasive is it? Explore ways to know when you’ve been duped by the marketing genius of diet culture and are practicing eating habits that compromise rather than enhance your health. Begin to recognize when you might be in a dietary red zone by asking yourself 6 essential questions and discover facets of social conditioning that disprove old tropes such as “you are what you eat.” Learn how to cultivate self-compassion by becoming a savvy consumer who can choose a new path to reclaim the body’s innate wisdom.
(See our website for the second session on September 28. Attend one or both.)
