Mark your calendars: on Saturday, March 10 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, Sharon Cohen (naturopath) and I (Dr. Julia Di Nardo) will be co-hosting a workshop entitled…

“Making Peace with Food”

The focus of this seminar is our relationship with food and how it impacts our eating habits. Our beliefs and feelings about food are often deeply rooted in childhood memories or other core experiences. It is important to address the emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives in order to truly nourish ourselves. Combining the principles of nutritional awareness, personal growth, and body awareness, Making Peace with Food provides practical methods for redefining the role food plays in our lives. Many people have conflicting feelings around food rather than nourishing ones. Most of us are no longer sure what, when or how much is appropriate to eat. This seminar addresses this challenge by encouraging us to observe how both our thoughts and food choices affect our bodies and emotions. It reveals how our attitude to food reflects our attitude to life itself. We will inquire into the spiritual hunger in all of us and if food can actually satiate this hunger. Making Peace with Food is about how to eat rather than what to eat. Students come away from the seminar with a transformed perspective on mind, body and soul nourishment.
