Learn to Eat Mindfully at the Center for Integrative Medicine

Shore Health System’s Center for Integrative Medicine is offering the five-week program “Mindful Eating” beginning Tuesday, May 4 and ending on June 8. The class will not meet on May 18. The program will be held at the Memorial Hospital at Easton, 219 Washington Street, in the Nick Rajacich Health Education Center from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

“Mindful eating is about opening the mind’s awareness to our food and to the body, before, during and after we eat,” says program facilitator Larissa Kitenko, PharmD. “In this course, we will explore our relationship to food as well as our habits and patterns by practicing of mindfulness.”

Kitenko, who is a meditation instructor and a trained Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction facilitator, will lead the group in mindful movement and a body scan. She will also teach a form of mindfulness meditation that participants will be encouraged to practice between sessions.

The cost of “Mindful Eating” is $70. For more information and to register, call the Center for Integrative Medicine, 410-770-9400.
