    What nourishes you?

    What obstacles do you experience in nourishing yourself?

    In what ways does eating nourish you?

    Mindfulness is the capacity to bring full attention and awareness to one’s experience, in the moment, without judgment. Mindful eating helps us become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations related to eating, reconnecting us with our innate inner wisdom about hunger and satiety.

    A Mindful Leader embodies leadership presence by cultivating focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion in the service of others. Mindful leaders can feel the space even in fast-paced high stress situations and work to create a culture of trust. Leadership presence is a tangible quality. This requires full and complete attention, with curiosity and openness, in the present moment. Those around a mindful leader see and feel that presence.

    This 3-hour workshop, offered in two 1.5-hour sessions, introduces participants to the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion. 

    Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing - being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity.

    What people are saying...

    Wonderful teachers and learning community!

    - Kim Thomas, Seattle

    Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we're hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

     Unwinding Anxiety: Mindfulness-Based Habit Change
    A Live Online Three-Hour Workshop

    Stress Eating? Binge surfing? Worrying? Procrastinating?
    Do you feel stuck in patterns that keep you from living your life?
    Anxiety is often beneath these patterns.


    Unwinding Anxiety with Mindfulness-Based Habit Change

    In the chaos of our everyday lives, we often run on auto-pilot finding ourselves caught in unhealthy habit patterns. These habits rob us of happiness, health, sleep, and connections with family, friends, and even ourselves. While mindfulness has been around for thousands of years, recent research has helped us understand how it works in the brain and the neural pathways that make the practice of mindfulness effective in habit change. 

    Mindfulness-Based Habit Change (MBHC) is based on the work of psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher Judson Brewer, MD Ph.D. as described in his recent book Unwinding Anxiety and in the article How Anxiety Hides Your Habits. Integrating both ancient wisdom and new learnings from neuroscience, we take a step-by-step approach to habit change that has been demonstrated to be effective with smoking cessation, alleviating stress eating, and reducing anxiety. 

    In this workshop, participants will: 

    • Become aware of habit loops
    • Bring mindfulness to your experience to explore the results of your actions
    • Tune-in to the effects of healthy, life-sustaining habits
    • Discover freedom of choice based on your experience

    Note: This workshop is appropriate for those who have some experience with mindfulness practice.

    For further habit change practice, see the full six-week class beginning Oct. 19.

    Instructors: 

    Robin Boudette, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and mindfulness instructor, has practiced yoga and meditation for nearly 20 years and has completed multiple training programs including the Community Dharma Leader Training (CDL 5) at Spirit Rock. She is a certified MBSR instructor and is a member of the teaching team at Mindfulness Institute at Jefferson University Hospital. In 2016, she began working with Judson Brewer, MD, Ph.D., offering evidence-based mindfulness interventions for habit change. As the Training Coordinator at Mindsciences, she heads up the Behavior Change Facilitator Training Program. She also offers online courses, workshops, and retreats around the country. She is especially committed to the practice of life release and is engaged in animal rescue.

    Lish Dorosin, M.Ed., has been a teacher and mindfulness practitioner for over 20 years. Trained by Dr. Judson Brewer as a Behavior Change Facilitator, Lish has taught in this capacity at the University of California at San Francisco Osher Center for the past four years. She is a qualified mindfulness instructor and serves as a retreat manager at the Insight Retreat Center.
