“Instead of being on automatic and mindless, mindfulness helps us awaken, and by reflecting on the mind we are enabled to make choices and thus change becomes possible.”
– Dr. Dan Siegel, The Mindful Brain
Helping someone heal from an eating disorder, or from any chronic disconnection between head, heart and body, is a process that involves a practitioner stepping into the intensity and holding compassionate space for the whole person and their pain. We are partners in their journey and the healing relationship evolves as the one in pain begins to find their authentic voice and connect to the deeper hungers that are calling out for care. Mindfulness, or mindful awareness, can assist this process in every stage to bring strength, clarity and inspiration to both practitioner and client. Please join Shelly Sowell, M.Ed., LPCC, for an intimate workshop on how to integrate present moment awareness practices into your work.
