Conscious EatingConscious Eating is a meditative process that allows us to recognize early hunger signals, make satisfying food choices and be aware of our level of fullness. Learning this process includes Andrea’s guidance through actual eating experiences to help you maximize your awareness of your body’s signals of hunger and fullness as well as the sensory pleasure of taste and texture.
Emotional Hunger can be identified as it differs from Physical Hunger. An understanding of forbidden foods, deprivation, isolation, childhood trauma around food and psychological abuse are explored as contributing factors. Andrea helps her clients reveal the underlying issues that have led to food struggles. Conscious Eating is a component of an approach to disordered eating and distorted body image.
Andrea works with clients that struggle with listening to their body signals, that suffer with eating disorders such as Compulsive Overeating, Anorexia and Bulimia. By changing our relationship to food and our body we can learn to listen and trust our body’s innate wisdom. This work is done on an individual basis and in groups at Luminosity Studio in Concord, MA and in several of the classes and courses that Andrea teaches.
