“We repeat what we don't repair.” – Judson Brewer
The “why, what and how” of eating is something that we can become more mindful of and, as a result, gain greater awareness and understanding of this aspect of our life. With greater awareness comes the ability to make wiser choices that bring us into greater alignment with how we want to live and be in relationship to eating and food. ⠀
This six-week program is not about weight loss (although that may happen). It’s about learning to understand how our brain and mind work and impact behaviour so that we can use this understanding to unwind highly conditioned (and often unhelpful) habits and automatic behaviours, as well as develop new adaptive ones.
This six-week course is based on the science of mindfulness-based behaviour change. The Eat Right Now Program (ERN), developed by Dr. Judson Brewer, MD, a Ph.D. addiction psychiatrist, is an evidence-based program that has been shown to reduce food-related cravings among participants by 40%.

As part of this program, participants who wish to use the Eat Right Now the app will receive a 10% discount. The app is designed to go at your own pace and includes short daily lessons, guided meditations and exercises (10-15 minutes a day.)
If you choose to use the app, this six-week program will support and re-enforce the ERN learnings and provide an opportunity to dive deeper (through inquiry) into your experience around behaviours you want to change. If you choose not to use the app, that’s ok too, but we recommend you do as you will get more out of this course.
Daily practice is essential to reinforce what you learn (the app can serve as your daily home practice.)
