1-Day Eating Psychology Retreat (Jan 2023)

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

Many people try to fix their food and body challenges using nutrition/diet. When nutrition is the right intervention, it really does work. But often the root of the eating challenges people find themselves facing lies in psychology … the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings that influence or limit us...

On Saturday, January 7th, Laura will be offering her day-long eating psychology workshop online (Zoom). Generally, this workshop will be a good fit if you tend to find yourself experiencing a split with your eating or attitude toward eating, meaning you might go through periods of dietary restriction followed by periods of dietary "indulgence" or "rebellion" and want to learn how to transform this pattern or feel drawn to learning the deeper dimensions of nutrition, eating, and body weight.

During our time together, you'll learn sound dietary principles that support metabolic functioning and learn exactly what needs to happen to reduce polarized eating patterns based on patterns observed in client case studies over the past 13+ years (Participants have said the case studies have been their favorite part).

We'll address:

  • the deeper dimensions of perfectionism

  • nutrition in the West

  • common fears and reactions that arise when working with diet

  • personal evolutionary steps toward more joyful eating

  • specific practices to heal your eating in a personal way, strongly rooted in the Feminine.

Our morning session: build awareness and guidance around effective nutrition and diet interventions for eating challenges that are physical in origin. Learn what common nutritional practices backfire, how we learned them, and how to set things up with diet in a more effective way so the body synchs up with its natural rhythms and appetite. Case studies included.

Our afternoon session: learn eating psychology principles and how to work with influential forces of the personality system that can transform and heal your eating habits sustainably. Often what's on the move in our inner world makes itself known outwardly through our dramas and unwanted patterns around eating. We explore the impact of emotional metabolism, personal boundaries, the deeper split in the psyche and its healing, the need for conscious ritual, and more...Case studies included.

Prepare to feel uplifted and encouraged in 2023! Though my language focuses on women, class is open to anyone who feels drawn to the themes presented here.
