Discover how to nourish your mood, informed by science and guided by your own awareness and self-compassion.
The latest research shows that mental health is a whole-body issue.
Nourish Your Mood: Meditation and Eating with the Brain in Mind
is a comprehensive program for your mood that:
– Is evidence-based and open-hearted.
– Gives you accurate support for your physiology and respects you as your own best teacher.
– Lets you discover your own answers and gives you mutual support.
HOW THIS PROGRAM IS DIFFERENT:
Body-positive, fat-positive, food-positive, transgender/LGBTQI-positive.
Nourish Your Mood is committed to a body-positive, fat-liberation approach.
Nourish Your Mood is transgender and non-binary-affirming. We welcome bodies living with disability and health conditions.
EATING WITH THE BRAIN IN MIND DOES NOW INVOLVE:
Weighing yourself or calorie talk
Using nutrition or mindfulness as more reasons to criticize yourself
No one turned away for lack of funds.
The teaching is donated.

I’m Reba Connell, Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Professional and clinical social worker. I’ve been focused on mindfulness and mental health nutrition and have taught therapists, health care providers, and stressed-out people to balance their mood and investigate the connection between mood and food with curiosity and self-compassion.
I have completed professional training in teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction under the direction of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and Dr. Saki Santorelli and a training in teaching Mindful Eating through UCSD.
I have studied with Dr. Leslie Korn and many of the leaders in Mental Health Nutrition and the Functional Medicine.
I deeply care about food justice and hope you’ll envision and collaborate with me to create a world where nourishing food is available to all.
