Empowering Health: Mindful Eating for Body Confidence and Weight Management

Education, Inspiration and Support on Mindful Eating
as a Way to Wellness

May 31 – June 2, 2024

with Robin Richards, MA, EdS, RMT


This retreat will support you in ditching diet culture and empowering your health as a mindful, intuitive eater who cultivates a positive relationship with food and your body.

During this retreat, you will learn to embrace mindful eating as a way to build body confidence and manage your weight. As an experienced and certified instructor of Mindfulness and Mindful Eating, as well as nearly two decades of experience as a licensed teacher and a certified Nutrition Coach, Robin Richards will be your instructor and guide over the course of the weekend.

Robin will teach you to listen to your body’s natural hunger and fullness signals, and develop a greater understanding of your unique nutritional needs in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. You will learn mindfulness practices that help you connect with your body, reduce stress, and promote self awareness through elements and components of MBSR – Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and MB-EAT Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training.

The weekend will include a blend of Mindfulness Meditations, Eating Exercise, and Mindful Eating Practices as well as tools to integrate your learning into your daily life. Throughout the weekend, you will have both supported and open time to integrate what you learn. This includes enjoying the fresh, nourishing food provided at the Christine Center as well as exploring the many forms of relaxation and renewal to nourish your body and mind.

You will leave this retreat feeling empowered and confident in your ability to make mindful choices that support your health and well-being. With new skills and insights, you’ll be equipped to continue your mindful eating practice at home and experience the benefits for years to come.

You are encouraged to come exactly as you are and pack comfortable, layered clothing for general comfort and ease. Pack a swimsuit if you are interested in enjoying the cleansing experience of the sauna during one of the open periods of time. Handouts and pencils will be provided, but you may want to bring anything else that supports your learning.
