Food, hunger, longing and the body
This workshop is an opportunity to look at your relationship with food in a safe, therapeutic setting. Through exploring patterns of denying or indulging hunger, you can begin to restore trust in your embodied experience of your life and needs.
Some of us feel good when we 'successfully' control our appetite for food. Although cultivating discipline can be satisfying, it can sometimes involve an attitude of pride, seeing appetite as a weakness. Some of us eat when we are really looking to satisfy other needs, then feel ashamed about having no self-discipline.
Whether we rigidify and exert control over our appetite or whether we give up or go blank and lose a sense of control, these ways of shaping ourselves around eating invariably extend to how we live our whole lives.
This weekend is a chance to recognise and influence these patterns in order to re-establish a sustainable and trusting relationship with your body, your feelings and needs, and your life.
