Lani Muelrath is an engaging presenter with a relatable story that resonates with so many. We were so fortunate to have Lani speak about being a mindful vegan at our Barnard Medical Center. We had to pry people away from her afterwards!  Her presentation captivated the audience’s attention with not only her success story, but the way she made science practical about using mindfulness and meditation as a tool for overall health.

Jill Eckart, Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine

Mindfully Vegan
Going vegan means you are already eating more consciously that the average American.You may already be mindful of the impact your diet has on your health and your weight, the environment, the lot of animals – or all three.

Yet what if you know all the right foods to eat, can easily pull together a delicious, healthy vegan meal – but still can’t seem to pull it off for more than a few days at a time?  What if your dietary ideal keeps getting derailed, especially when you feel stressed?   Mindfulness shows you new pathways to overcoming negative habits.

Research shows that mindfulness practice can:

● Enhance positive emotions, self-confidence, well-being, patience, and compassion
● Experience more calm in the midst of a hectic life, creating a greater capacity to deal with adverse events and situations – due in part to changes in the brain.
● Reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and improve moods
● Quiet your mind from intrusive, energy-sapping thoughts
● Increase mental clarity and focus – even if you are stressed-out
● Improve working memory and tame your wandering mind
● Enhance creativity and improve insightful problem solving

For those who struggle with following through on their food plan, addressing long held habits makes the difference between success and frustrated failed attempts.  In this session, find out what the research says about the positive effects mindfulness can have on eating in response to stress, anxiety, and other emotions – factors that reside at the roots of self-sabotage.  MIndfulness meditation goes to the heart of many troubles related to dietary choices, eating behaviors, body weight, and related issues. With mindfulness practice, one becomes aware of underlying thoughts and emotions that can drive set patterns of behavior, opening the door to a new response.

If you want to dissolve compulsive or self-sabotaging patterns involving food, or simply want to fundamentally improve your relationship with eating – and with your body, mind, and emotions – come find out from Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Lani Muelrath – who has also been practicing mindfulness meditation for almost twenty-five years – what the practice of mindfulness practice has to offer you.
