Mindful Eating Professional Online Training and Mentoring Program
MINDFUL EATING TRAINING INSTITUTE (METI) presents Mindful Eating Professional (MB-EAT) Online Training and Mentoring Program with MB-EAT Teacher/Trainer Andrea Lieberstein, MPH, RDN, RYT Our Three Month Online Mindful Eating Training and Mentoring Program will provide you with training in the practices and approaches of the Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training Program (MB-EAT) and other mindfulness practices as they support the practice of mindful eating and living. Through mindful eating practices, one learns to pay attention to what the body really needs, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with eating.
The training explores and provides intensive training with the foundational mindful eating, mindfulness and compassion practices needed to become a true embodied practitioner and guide of mindful eating with the core practices of a comprehensive evidence-based program supported by NIH funded research and more. Being the most effective and authentic mindful eating practitioner in our work, calls upon us to learn and embody the practice from the inside out. It calls upon us to understand the practice of mindfulness and how this applies to food, eating, behavior, as well as to our own and our clients’ inner landscape, including emotions and thoughts. It encompasses cultivating and practicing a wise relationship to our bodies, mind, and heart leading to greater equanimity, joy, clarity and skillful means to make wise choices that honor self-care, health and well-being. Learn how to skillfully navigate this terrain with love and compassion in this in-depth program that will transform your personal and professional practice.
MB-EAT was pioneered by Dr. Jean Kristeller, an Indiana State University professor, and supported by NIH-funded research. It addresses mindless and stress-related eating, emotional eating, disordered eating patterns and obesity so prevalent in our culture through the application of mindfulness meditation. The tools of inner and outer wisdom, integral to the program help support each person to make informed, balanced, healthy sustainable choices over a lifetime, while being truly nourished by food and other aspects of their lives on many levels. You will learn to become an embodied Mindful Eating and meditation practitioner and instructor. This course integrates the step by step tools for you to teach the 12-week MB-EAT Group outpatient program to your clients. These Mindful Eating (MB-EAT) principles are also invaluable to utilize with your clients to integrate into your private practice. The online MB-EAT Professional Training includes 12 'Live' 2 hour sessions using a state of the art program that has video computer technology so we can all see each other. It's like being in a virtual classroom but from the comfort of your own home or office. The live weekly sessions are recorded so you can listen to them if you miss a live interactive session.
This program also includes a day long virtual retreat, a small group coaching session, unlimited email access, training materials, manuals and more! We now include two bonus 1 Hour Q & A sessions as well, which our participants really appreciate! Practices and topics introduced include mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, eating meditations, guided visualizations, loving kindness and self-compassion practices, didactic instruction, inquiry method, role playing, tools, weekly home practices, assignments, coaching and self-reflection to cultivate mindful awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight. This training program provides a weight neutral approach. Upon completion of the training, participants will be qualified to teach the 12-week MB-EAT Group Program to their clients. You will gain personal understanding, experiential learning, and have a new relationship to mindfulness and mindful eating practices. You will also learn to apply a variety of mindfulness and mindful eating practices, information and tools to your clients, both individually and in group settings.
