What You’ll Do
When people find themselves eating to cope with problems, eating can become a problem itself. During her mindfulness-based workshop, Integrative Mental Health educator Jill Sheppard Davenport helps people overcome the cycle of anxiety-based eating. Participants who feel out of control with food or desire to eat cleaner but struggle with cravings will delve into the science of emotion and learn mindfulness strategies.
Study the Science of Emotion
Davenport explains why people use food to cope, how it can lead to guilt, and what people can do to overcome this habit.
Four Strategies for Self-Improvement
Participants will learn four strategies to help them overcome the feeling of being out of control with food, including designing their own personal “mindfulness pause.”
Once the food cravings are out of the picture, participants will focus on finding peace with their body image and sussing out what they are truly craving.

A friend recommended mindfulness, and Davenport found exactly what she needed.
