Transform Your Relationship with Food
Food is inherently a deep emotional and psychological component of each of our lives. Through our childhood into adulthood we learn how to eat based on familial, community, ethnic, and greater societal programming. The modern era has seen a dramatic increase in the number of fad diets telling us how and what to eat for better health but never do they delve into the how and why’s of ones current eating habits and the unique needs of the individual. Authentic change occurs when one understands the underlying causes of a condition or pattern, whether it be psychological, emotional, spiritual, or physical.

Siskiyou Vital Medicine Nutritionist and Lifestyle Coach Ron Veitel, BSc and Naturopathic Doctor Sonja Halsey, ND lead this 6-week course held on Thursday nights. They’ll take a journey into how you can:

  • Identify and clear unhealthy patterns around food and eating.
  • See how you can use your relationship with food as a vehicle to learn about how you relate to life and the world around you.
  • Create a healthy relationship with food and your body.
  • Discover what meaning food has for you.
  • Learn how your lifestyle, personal set of beliefs, and biochemical uniqueness play a role in how you nourish yourself.
  • Imagine what a harmonious relationship with food would look like for you and begin to make that vision a reality.

This class is FREE to SVM members and $125 for non-members.  Space is limited so call to reserve your spot now, (541) 210-5687.
