Event Details

Training Program*

During this 5-day experiential retreat-like seminar we will explore together the elements of a well-nourished life in the beautiful setting of Umbria.

Particular attention will be given to evidence-based tools and practices of mindful eating and living. You'll be able to immediately apply these tools in your own lives as well as with patients to help improve resilience, health and well-being and cultivate a balanced, wiser, and healthier relationship to food. The foundational tools, skills and practices of mindful eating and living - based on NIH funded research, contemporary psychological and behavioral sciences, nutrition, neuroscience and ancient wisdom practices - can be applied to a wide range of populations, including those with weight concerns, disordered eating, emotional and stress related eating and overeating and for those simply wishing to bring their lives into balance with mindful eating and living skills and practices. 

Session themes and practices include cultivating foundational practices and qualities that enhance well-being in everyday life: meditation practice, mindful eating, movement and yoga, self-compassion, lovingkindness, and how to stay present and embodied in the moment. We will work with difficult mind states and use the power of intention, mindfulness, applied neuroscience and behavioral science to create sustained and meaningful change with patients and clients. You will leave with a jewel box of practices to inform work with patients and your own self-care for a long time to come. 

The program offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for compassionate self-awareness and ability to apply foundational tools, skills and practices of mindful eating and living to a wide range of populations, including those with weight concerns, disordered eating, emotional and stress related eating and overeating. Designed for medical practitioners and healthcare professionals (Physicians, NPs, PAs, Nurses, Psychologists, Therapists, Counselors) involved in practice and education.  No prior experience is required; however, experience with meditation or other contemplative practices is welcomed and previous work and/or experience with eating issues. 

Teaching methods will include lecture, demonstration, mindfulness training, guided meditations, mindful eating exercises, group discussion and inquiry, personal inquiry, small groups, dyads, compassion training, healthy eating and living guidelines, sitting and walking meditation, self-compassion practices, gentle yoga, mindfulness-based eating awareness training practices, ecotherapy practices and role playing.

Organizer

Pronto Seminars


PRONTO SEMINARS organizes and hosts continuing education (CE and CME) workshops and retreats in Italy. Distinguished faculty, participants and their families come from all over the world to enjoy high quality experiential content at a relaxed pace. We provide an affordable way to combine work, travel and relaxation.

Our classes are small and designed so that afternoons and evenings are free for wanderings through the countryside, wonderful meals, or museum visits. Our participants tell us that learning in this environment, at a relaxed pace, allows for a full integration of new material and practices.

We are known for creating an intimate setting where presenters are available in a less formal way and where colleagues from around the globe become friends and get to know each other while enjoying the delights of Italy. This model provides an alternative to large and online conferences, and our participants have encouraged us to continue in this direction.

While we have participants from around the world, English is the language of our workshops. Space is limited.
