Eating together is not at simple as it sounds. Feeding others can be emotionally provocative. Food can be attached to memories that are both joyful and unhappy. What can we do so our loved one’s rest in our care when it comes to connection and food? How can we pair these two critical needs together and how did they come apart in the first place?
Gather to Eat offers foundational insight instead of quick fixes. Based on developmental and relational science, neuroscience, the science of emotion and play, as well as cultural traditions, we delve into how we can first gather our loved ones, and then eat. Why does this matter? Because it is from this place of rest we truly nourish our loved ones so they can thrive.
The key insight we have been missing is understanding how our loved ones become receptive to caretaking through attachment. If our feeding issues create distress and separation between us then how can we be their answer in all matters of caretaking? What if we could see eating issues as part of a stress response – even if the stress didn’t originate in the home? Feeding issues can create eating ones as easily as relational problems creating food ones.
The good news is whether we are trying to make headway on eating problems, deal with picky eating or food battles, or want our kids to develop as healthy, competent eaters, our relationship is the vehicle for making headway and change. This course is for anyone who eats or feeds others and who wants to delve into how we do this from a place of caring connection.[lifterlms_course_continue_button course_id="4894"] [lifterlms_course_continue_button]
