Redefine your relationship with food

Redefine your relationship with food over 7 weeks with Diane Stride.

Do you have a challenging relationship with food? Are you struggling with cravings or battling a desire to comfort eat? Would you like to experience the simple pleasure of a shared meal with your family?

Each of us has a unique relationship with food, and many of us feel the need to take back control. It’s all too common for food to become a dominant force in our lives - defining the way that we see ourselves, as well as impacting on our weight and our health.

Are you ready to tip the balance in your favour and begin enjoying food again?

Join Diane Stride for seven, two hour sessions in a tranquil setting in the stunning Tuki-Tuki Valley. Over the 7 weeks of the course, Diane will take you on a journey to explore your relationship with food and uncover the emotions that lie at the heart of your eating. Then, by teaching awareness; mindful eating principles; and sharing nutritional insights: Diane will help you begin to redefine your relationship with food.

I feel privileged and honoured to offer my recommendation and endorsement of Diane’s new program

Diane is a registered dietitian who has also invested enormously in her education in psychology, mindfulness training and the treatment of eating disorders but more importantly invests herself wholeheartedly in helping persons find effective ways to heal from very painful and difficult conditions and disorders.

To be effective in these fields takes a great deal more than formal education, even from such distinguished institutions as Oxford.  To effectively help persons with the pain and suffering experienced in these kinds of disorders requires at least a commensurate personal investment in cultivating mindfulness, compassion and loving kindness skills.

These skills can only be learned in the cauldrons of human suffering, both in the rawness of our individual lives but also in serving the lives of others. It’s clear to me that Diane has spent a great deal of time in both.

I feel privileged and honoured to offer my recommendation and endorsement of Diane’s new program and would encourage anyone that is seeking help with these difficult conditions to spend time with her and her new program to see for yourself how your personal investment with her can benefit your life.

I’m confident that this is one investment you will be happy to have made!
