You are HOW You Eat: Mindful Eating in the Age of Gluttony

The adage goes, “You are what you eat.” And this may be the case. It is also the case that, “You are how you eat.” This is the message of mindful eating. You can eat anything mindfully

You’ll have the opportunity to do some mindful eating at my Barre Center for Buddhist Studies workshop next week, February 17-19. There is still time to register.
