Dear Body - Mindful Eating Retreats

Our Dear Body – Mindful Eating Retreats provide you with the tools and a way of changing the relationship with your body, weight and food forever. Charlotte Thaarup is one of only a handful of people in Australia trained in mindful eating, and this life-changing program has been researched with great results.

These retreats are for you if are sick of the relentless inner dialogue around your body and food, and would like to stop dieting and allow your body to find its happy weight.

The benefits of reconnecting with the body include:

  • More presence and greater calm
  • Increased ability to emotionally regulate and self manage
  • Ability to pre-empt emotions and thoughts
  • Increased sense of internal freedom
  • Coming into alignment with our weight and food intake
  • Healing old pains and overcoming dislike of the body
  • Increased self compassion

There is a correlation between high mindfulness and a lower incidence of obesity, being more physically active, and binge eating less.

After a mindful eating program participants show:

  • Decreases in food cravings
  • Reduced dichotomous thinking/black-or-white thinking
  • Reduced body image concerns
  • Reduced emotional eating
  • Cognitive restraint around eating

Mindful eating programs have resulted in statistically significant decreases in weight, binge eating, depression and perceived stress.

When you combine your complete mindfulness program with massage, yoga, a beautiful environment and plenty of warmth and kindness, the time spent at a revitalising retreat provides you with an unforgettable experience – a treasured milestone in your mindfulness journey.
