We are pretty excited about a brand new offering at the Makerie, as we're always searching for ways to tie together the mind, body and spirit. There is certainly a connection between food and creativity and we are thrilled to announce that we will be incorporating a Mindful Eating Breakfast into the retreat, open to everyone who would like to take part. I tried this for myself several months ago and knew within five minutes into the session we had to find a way to make this part of the Makerie experience. Luckily we live in Boulder, a town of very food conscious folks, and found an amazing woman to lead us through this playful and insightful way to eat. Jenny Epstein Kessem, MA, LPC, BC-DMT, a Boulder psychotherapist, uses mindful eating in groups and with individuals to access mind and body integration. Here's a sneak peek of how she'll be sharing her personal passion with all of you through this meaningful meal.
A breakfast for your senses...
Start your day off with a refreshingly new way to eat breakfast ~ mindfully! We will be guided to be awake and present for this most important meal of the day by slowing down and really noticing what we're doing as we do it. The Mindful Eating Breakfast will help awaken the senses, increase the ability to feel pleasure, and open pathways to feeling satisfaction. These are skills that are invaluable for creative people! Who knew you could eat your way to feeling more creative?
Won't this be cool? Even the New York Times thinks so!
