Do you find yourself often eating meals while studying, watching TV, or reading patient charts? Do you have cravings for junk food? Have you ever realized yourself standing in front of the fridge without remembering how you got there? We likely all have.

Mindful eating is about eating with intention and attention. Eating is a natural, healthy, and pleasurable means to satisfying hunger. But it is often mindless, over-consuming, and guilt-inducing. Come learn about mindful eating from Dr. Ruth Wolever, a health psychologist from the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine who focuses on behavior, thoughts, and emotions around food. She is an expert in her field at teaching people how to read their body's signals and change their relationship with food.

As experiental learning is key, a local and organic dinner will be provided by Casey Dailey, Nashville chef who focuses on farm to table cooking. Please RSVP soon as availability is limited.

UPDATE: There are no longer any spots available. Look out for our future events!
