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!
