Mindful Eating course in Bicester

Are you a serial dieter?  Someone who goes on a diet, quite possibly loses weight ... then stops the diet and puts all the weight back on again (and maybe a bit more too!).


Do you find yourself munching your way through a big bag of crisps/biscuits without even tasting them?


Have you spent a fortune on diets, diet books, diet clubs, pills or special ingredients?


Do you feel guilty about eating some of your favourite foods?


Then this Mindful Eating course is for you! 


During this four week programme you will:

  • Learn how to understand the choices you make and what influences them
  • Experience a deepening mind-body connection
  • Learn to hear your inner food critic
  • Understand how to distinguish between a craving of the heart and hunger
  • Identify the habits that trap you in cycles of mindless eating
  • Achieve a better relationship with food
  • Make peace with your eating


This will be a 4 week programme where you will be able to learn how Mindfulness can help you in the context of eating.  The next course is planned for January.


The course fee includes four weekly one hour sessions with course leader Elaine Whittaker, your home practice guides and handouts together with recordings of practices used on the course.  A deposit of £30 secures your place on what is proving to be a very popular programme.  The balance payment of £45 is due about 10 days before the course commences.  This is a popular course, so do book your place now.

Feedback from previous course attendees:


"I feel calmer and happier with myself and life.  I'm eating more heaalthily and enjoying my food more."


"I attended your Mindful Eating course and it has changed my life - thank you so much"


I'm aware of a "general feeling of being calmer and having a greater sense of wellbeing."


I've noticed "listening to and trying to accept myself; not trying to push away feelings and emptions.  I'm eating slower and enjoying it."


I'm "learning to slow down and savour the pleasure of eating.  Learning not to tell myself off when I eat something sweet."


I've enjoyed "looking at things in a different way - noticing what we're eating and what our emotions are when we are eating ... stress, boredom etc."
