Have you tried time and again to make changes in what and how you eat, only to find yourself back to old patterns time and again? HasÂ your historyÂ with food resulted in feelings of overwhelm, shame or frustration? In this series we open our eyes widely and honestly to both the difficulty and the opportunity of healthyÂ eating in modern life, including the struggle so many of us have faced.Â
If youâ€™re ready to experienceÂ peace in your relationship with food, this seriesÂ provides everything from a simple structure you can use anywhere, to a wealthÂ of resources and connections as you deepen your exploration of what eating well means to you.
Here are aÂ fewÂ of things The Peaceful Plate program is notÂ about:Â
So what doesÂ The Peaceful Plate program provide?
The series is made upÂ of four 2 1/2 hour-long classes, offered locally throughout the year. All classes are at our Chapel Hill Office unless otherwise indicated.
The foundation class introduces The Peaceful Plate core practices, which give you a grounding foundationÂ to work from as you exploreÂ changes. Each of the three applied classes builds from this foundation to help you better navigate the specific and practical eating challenges so many of us share.
It is recommended that you take the whole series, but the design is flexible and there is no necessary sequence to it. Once you complete the foundation class, you will have a strong baseÂ to work from and you are welcome to chooseÂ among the three applied classes at any time.
IÂ offer a 10% discount when you sign up for all four classes at once.
We will exploreÂ a powerfulÂ set of tools to help you simplify your efforts to eat well, after weÂ first take an honest look at the world of what influences us with food and eating. TheÂ Peaceful Plate toolsÂ focusÂ on presence, nourishment and satisfaction as the base of a new orientation to food and eating.
You will receive practice tools you can take home and work with, as well as voluntaryÂ access to the Peaceful PlateÂ Private Facebook Group, a space whereÂ anyone who has taken the class or series can explore and practiceÂ with meÂ and others.Â
Deciding What to Eat
The need to make choices about what to eat starts early each morning and stays with us through every day. The question of what to eat is where theÂ food environment is mostÂ powerful and influential over our choices. We spend time exploring food decisions across the environments you inhabit, from home to school to work to out in the world, applying the foundation practices in dynamic ways to support you.
This class givesÂ youÂ new tools and perspectives to groundÂ your choices and help you listen well to the wisdom ofÂ your own body and mind.
Planning & Preparing to Eat
Finding workable ways to get ahead of our eating needs can have enormous impact on peace of mind and wellbeing.Â The challenges we face in getting ahead of things in modern life are significant, keeping many of us from meeting our aims with food and eating. The need to eat doesn’t go away, and it all takes time, thought, energy and effort that we just don’t see available. The foundation practices can beÂ applied and enhanced to help you in the moment or in the greater flow of life with this important aspect of healthy eating.
The tools you’ll take away from this class are true to the aim ofÂ keeping it simple, with extremelyÂ realisticÂ strategies that can be adapted to your unique life.
We are driven to eat by more than just our food environment. Our inner drives toward nourishment, rest, comfort and more play a large role in what can become unhealthy patterns of eating and living.
In this class, you willÂ explore new ways the foundationÂ practices can be applied and enhanced in self-compassionate and effective ways to meet the drives of yourÂ bodyÂ and mind.
We look forward to meeting you, and hope you’ll consider registering for the full series below, which enablesÂ you to take advantage of a 10% discount and helps you strengthen your practice of a more peaceful relationship with food.
