Mindful Eating classes offered

Two free introductory sessions of the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Program are being offered this month in the Murphy Room of the Providence Center for Faith & Healing.

Each gives an overview about how to transform eating habits and stop the cycle of yo-yo dieting and overeating. The first class is tonight at 6:30 p.m. The second is Sept. 24 at the same time.

They will be followed by a full eight-week course, which costs $300 and takes place Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. from Oct. 22 to Dec. 10. Those sessions also meet in the Murphy Room.
