Mindful Eating

Saturday, July 23 @ 12:30-2pm

Led by Michelle Brewer

If you want to change the way you eat but get stuck between what you want to put in your mouth and what you do put in your mouth then this workshop is for you. See what insight a meditation-supported, sense-heightened experience of eating allows as you tour through Taste of Edmonton and mindfully choose dishes featured from some of our vendors.
