Item Description

Speak by phone with Dr. Jan Chozen Bays and get answers to your own questions about mindful eating, "an approach that involves bringing one's full attention to the process of eating-to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal." The successful bidder will also receive a signed copy of Mindful Eating: A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food.

Shambhala Publications says of mindfulness and Mindful Eating that it "can transform our struggles with food - and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating. Drawing on recent research and integrating her experiences as a physician and meditation teacher, Dr. Jan Bays offers a wonderfully clear presentation of what mindfulness is and how it can help."

Since 1985 Jan Chozen Bays has been the teacher for the Zen Community of Oregon. In 2002 she helped to found Great Vow Zen Monastery and currently is the co-abbot. Chozen is also a pediatrician, mother and wife. As a physician she is very interested in how meditation and science interface. She is particularly involved teaching how to use meditation to work with eating disorders and grief.

Mindful Eating also includes a 75-minute audio CD containing guided exercises led by the author.
