TAME Your Appetite Workshops

If you are not ready for either of the TAME Your Appetite Programs, you may prefer to learn about mindfulness-based eating awareness training through one of these TAME Your Appetite Introductory Workshops.


A wonderful way to start your journey into mindful eating is by attending one of Dr. Sheila’s One Hour Introductory Workshops. In this workshop, Dr. Sheila will explain the principles of mindful eating, teach you a basic mindfulness meditation and lead you through a mindful eating experience.

The topics covered include:

  • What is Mindful Eating?
  • Using Meditation as a Tool
  • A Mindful Eating Experiment
  • Aspects of Mindful Eating
  • Hunger
  • Fullness and Satisfaction
  • Choice
  • Eating Mindfully with others
  • 7 Skills for Mindful Eating

These workshops are held online. Handouts will be provided.


You can deepen your exposure to and understanding of mindful eating by attending a full day online workshop where you dive deeper into the principles of mindful eating, expand your skills for mindfulness meditation and experience mindful eating in real time. This workshop is six hours long and comes with a Student Guide.

I hope that you will join me soon for one of these amazing opportunities to become a mindful eater!
