Life-Changing Workshops

For Healing, Discovery, and Emotional Growth

Food is the first mood-altering chemical that we humans encounter. As we learn to accept nourishment and then to feed ourselves, we also absorb the behaviors and eating patterns of our caregivers and adapt to the emotions and circumstances of our environment. We carry these influences throughout our lives, even when they become destructive to our health and well-being.

If your eating behaviors don’t match your goals, then this workshop is for you. Whether you overeat, undereat, fluctuate back and forth, or do both at the same time, this workshop helps you see your current struggles with food through the lens of your personal history.

By participating in and processing meals together, you will learn to identify and then separate your eating from your contradictory emotions and thoughts. Through group discussions, activities and homework assignments, you will use all of your senses, skills and talents to move beyond insight to action and set the stage for permanent change.

Open to men and women and limited to six attendees, this workshop is led by Remuda Ranch at The Meadows Senior Fellow Jessica Setnick, with compassion, wisdom, and hope for tomorrow.

What Participants Say About The Workshop

“The workshop is a holistic approach to see what a normal day and week of eating should be without exterior stressors. The workshop provides a safe place to truly connect to yourself.”

“Extraordinary experience, enriched by the fact that there were so many levels of recovery amongst the group.”

“This workshop shifted my relationship with myself, taught me new ways to nurture myself appropriately, supported me in connecting to myself more deeply and also how to eat mindfully.”

“I was most grateful for the concrete tools I left with that I could implement daily to support my continued journey.”


Workshops run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. The schedule is flexible, accommodating the group process.

The workshop will take place on the following dates in 2016:

February 29-March 4 June 20-24 September 19-23
December 5-9
