Mindfulness Meditation for Weight Loss

May 30, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Focus for May 2017: Weight Loss through Meditation

  1. Reduce stress eating: Researchers in the fast-growing field of mindfulness research are learning that simply changing how we eat might be a key to weight loss. Since stress is often at the root of overeating, mindfulness seems to make us eat better meals, and therefore helps us lose weight.
  2. Focus on mindful eating: Mindfulness is the act of focusing attention on present-moment experiences. Mindful eating means actually paying attention to the food you’re eating, making you less likely to eat large portions thoughtlessly and therefore help you lose weight.
  3. Recognize internal hunger and fullness cues: According to new research, mindfulness sharpens a person's ability to recognize internal cues that signal hunger and fullness. By recognizing when you are full, you are able to stop eating sooner which helps you lose weight.
  4. Reduce food cravings: Mindfulness also helps take the claws out of cravings. Mindfulness can disrupt that automatic reaction by reducing the appeal of unhealthy foods. Therefore when a food craving pops up in your head it appears as nothing more than a mere thought.

All are welcome to join in our weekly meditation practice led by Erin Sheehan. Mindfulness meditation can be a safe, natural and effective tool in helping to decrease stress, increase immunity and overall mental and physical well-being.

Erin takes the time each week to introduce mindfulness meditation to the group and leads a practice. There is no previous experience necessary and participants are encouraged to bring a friend and join as often as possible. Different guided meditations are offered as well as direction to help individuals establish a personal practice at home.


Cost = $10 / class or $30 / month
