The Blog
Tasting Mindfulness was created to be a support for people hoping to have a different relationship with their food, their bodies, their minds, and ultimately their lives. It grew out of a ten week program entitled “Eat for Life” that was developed by Dr. Lynn Rossy and Hannah Bush, M.A. and is offered to faculty and staff at the University of Missouri. The philosophy is holistic and comprehensive–incorporating mindfulness, the intuitive wisdom of the body and mind, and educational components that support our efforts to be more healthy and conscious about our actions and behaviors. Enjoy!

  8. Dr Rossy,
    You have dream job.. of course so do I. You have pedigree training, very impressive ! I currently work as and training Behavioral Health Consultants to provide services in Primary Care. I started Mindfulness practice in 1974 while training to be a volunteer for drug crisis center in Carbondale, Ill. Was turned onto the terminology in 1995 when exposed to Dialectical Behavior Therapy, later practiced more intensively with DBT consultation Team in the last several years,I stopped DBT in 2012. Have been close to Thomas Merton, Kabat- Zinn, Ram Dass for years. //Currently I find myself teaching some variant of Mindfulness to patients/colleagues daily as practical application for them being effective in reaching their goals. Particularly interested in different ways to present non-judgmental stance micro, macro, and meta.//Also am considering and would like feedback about developing outline for Community College class in Mindfulness. Namaste ,
