Focusing and Food: Healing Emotional Eating

September 29, 2018 11:00 am - 1:00 pm Eastern Time
An Online Class Facilitated by Matanel Weissmann

Part of The Focusing Highlights Series

(no special computer skill or equipment required)

We walk around with a feeling that there is something wrong with us when it comes to food.

It isn’t for lack of trying. To cope with our eating patterns, we might have tried lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, emotional support through support groups or self-help books, or pure self-control. There is so much out there promising to help, but we still have this issue with food.

It seems that many solutions miss something. We are living organisms. In every emotional eating experience there is an elusive desire for life. What your body knows about food can surprisingly change your life. But how can it tell us?

In this experiential class we will learn ways to get to know and cultivate this live knowing, using Gendlin's philosophy.  All are welcome.
