Food Recovery Program Workshop

Food Recovery Program is a safe haven for Food Addicts and Compulsive Overeaters looking for a solution beyond the traditional dieting model.

This program is for anyone who has struggled with their weight, who has searched for years for a miracle cure, and spent thousands of dollars looking for a solution.

This is for anyone who is uncomfortable in their own body, and will not waste any more years, months, days to this struggle! People searching for a program with lifelong sustainability and recovery that rewards you with a healthy body size.

I have lived two lives, one as a morbidly obese woman. Over a decade ago I lost 100 pounds, I am a CTI certified Life Coach, Vice Chair for the Canadian Obesity Network (Toronto Chapter), and a Radio Show Host.

Every human malady, including Food Addiction should to be treated on the levels of Body, Mind and Spirit.

Body – Refined sugar and white flour are poison for our bodies. Who can safely eat these substances?

Mind – Cravings, obsessions, and insatiability are the consequence of living only in your mind. Learn the role neural pathways play in Food Addiction and begin to form new neural pathways to healing.

Spirit – Recognize your true self. There is nothing wrong with you. You are not weak. You are not lazy. You have been battling a fight that is not yours to fight; surrender to the power lies inside you for freedom.

Practice is Progress:

Developing your sustainable mindfulness practice

Are you:

  • Interested in, or already practicing mindfulness in some way?
  • Serious about developing your mindfulness practice to serve you better?
  • Looking for accountability to help you commit to your mindfulness practice?

Practice is Progress is an individual coaching program to explore what mindfulness means to you, and develop the practice(s) that suits you best. Facilitated by Maggie DiStasi, Professional Coach and Applied Mindfulness Meditation Specialist.

Each week we explore a different topic of mindfulness and try a mindfulness practice in the moment. You will also be coached around your practice – which strengths support you, what gets in your way, and the greater purpose or vision for how your practice can serve you. You will be invited to create new practice commitments for each week ahead, along with accountability measures.

Week 1: The Umbrella of Awareness

Week 2: The Practice – Meditation

Week 3: The Practice – Self-reflection

Week 4: Suffering = Pain x Resistance

Week 5: Suffering = Tension x Resistance

Week 6: Measuring Progress & Moving Forward

This program is unique in that it combines the fundamental elements of professional coaching (inquiry, choice, action) with the experiential wisdom that comes from mindful practice (ease suffering, unleash creativity, trust in your true nature). It is meant for those who have some experience with mindfulness already and are looking to take their practice to the next level, with commitment and accountability.

Assisting Family and Closely-Held Businesses: Mediation, Coaching and Facilitation

Jan 28-30, Toronto

This is a huge, largely untapped market. Many family businesses have aging leaders who need to plan the transfer of their business and wealth. Coaching is needed for the leaders and for the younger generation of possible successors (leadership coaching, life coaching, conflict coaching). And then there are business partners who have their own troubles. But to work with them, you will want the substantive knowledge about such businesses to work more effectively with them, e.g. succession planning, dynamics and models of families and businesses, shareholder agreements, best practice tips, etc. There will also be role playing and demonstrations, etc.

Instructors: Daryl Landau, Masters degree in conflict resolution and Accredited Family Mediator, Phil Kriszenfeld, Family Enterprise Advisor and Qualified Mediator, Both from family business backgrounds. And guest speakers Andrew Brown (lawyer) and Tim Miron (accountant) will share their wisdom.

WELCOME! It's the beginning of a brand New Year - 2016 - and most people like to set new goals for the New Year.

Most of us want a life filled with purpose, passion, inspiring visions, and uplifting goals. However, we don't know how or where to begin.

Dreams, resolutions and change, can feel like an uphill task, and yet it doesn't need to be that way.

Today, you will discover what you truly want for yourself this year, and what you are willing to push through to accomplish your goals.

With my clients over the years, we always start with a process to clear the decks from the previous year first, followed by setting clear intentions for the New Year, giving you a powerful foundation from which to achieve your goals.

Here is the outline we will follow in this Workshop:

  • Take a snapshot of your current life situation
  • Design your bigger game (in career/health/life/relationships)
  • Write your 2016 mini Vision Statements
  • 2017 Future Visualization exercise
  • Create measurable & actionable milestones, and
  • Further your actions by working with a coach after the workshop
  • Acknowledge what you are proud of in 2015

Dates: Saturday January 16th or Saturday January 23rd

Time: 10am - 2.30pm
