Take a journey of discovery about yourself, your eating habits, and the relationship you have with your body


Dear Body - Mindful Eating

Do you want to step away from dieting and enjoy a new awareness of your body and a healthier relationship with food?

Anti-fat prejudice is a global reality. Being overweight or obese is associated with laziness and lack of self-control, which leads to anxiety, self-loathing and shame.

The Mindfulness Clinic’s program, Dear Body – Mindful Eating, is aimed at facilitating a shift from having a cognitive relationship with the body, which is coloured by cultural stereotypes, to a sensory relationship with the body which is a kind and intimate experience.

The program uses mindfulness and mindful eating to support a healthy weight while at the same time reducing stress and anxiety. Dear Body is delivered as an online program, through face-to-face sessions, or through immersive retreats.

The online program, Dear Body: Six Steps to Loving the Body and Freeing the Mind, is comprised of:

  • Weekly videos
  • Audios
  • Meditations
  • Written manual and workbook
  • Lifetime access to a private supportive Facebook community.

Charlotte describes the benefits of mindful eating

What is mindful eating?

Mindful eating is about eating with intention and attention so that we:

  • Increase self-awareness and self-management
  • Correct the imbalances that inappropriate eating generates
  • Learn to make good choices naturally
  • Recapture and reclaim our power, as well as a healthy and wise life focus
  • Step into life rather than mask pain and discomfort with food
  • Uncover more richness in daily activities
  • Experience balance and harmony with food.

What are the program objectives?

  • To become more aware of why and when we eat and for what reasons
  • To find alternative ways to cope with the sensations that lead us to the fridge
  • To recognise and remove long-held negative beliefs and associations around food and diet
  • To become aware of triggers that lead to over-eating
  • To develop strategies and practical tips around portions, shopping and food consumption

Without mindful eating we often eat mindlessly while we work, or while we drive; we eat for the wrong purpose, and without a sense of true choice.
