Struggling around your relationship to food? to your body? to yourself?
Caught up in cycles of negative self-talk?  Tired of worrying, stressing and disappointing yourself?

You are not alone.  And there is another way.  

The Compassion Inspired Eating Workshop offers participants

  • tools to practice self-kindness in daily life around your eating
  • understanding about the benefits of self-compassion to your health and wellbeing
  • strategies to motivate yourself with kindness, not criticism
  • healthy ways to ‘feel and heal’ difficult emotions 
  • open path to transformation around food, body image and self-esteem
  • an opportunity to learn about and incorporate the arts of savouring and self-appreciation


The workshop is supported by our Cards for Compassion inspired Eating.  Each card in the deck offers a meditation or practice based on mindfulness, body positivity, self-acceptance and self-compassion. We can pull a card from the deck and use the message as a reminder to give ourselves care and kindness, especially when struggling with food or body image. Noticing how we feel in our body when we first see the card is a mindfulness practice.  We can keep the card close to us for the day as a loving reminder that we deserve care, that we can have our own back and be there for ourselves when things are hard. 

Together the workshop and cards offer a positive, practical and radical shift in nourishing our body and ourselves.
