Who’s at the Table? Exploring Food and Body Using Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Join PATH in collaboration with IFS Nutritionist Diana Dugan Richards during four 2-hour workshops . We’ll collectively and individually explore:

Hunger (Jan 27th 4-6p EST):

This workshop will begin the gentle inquiry of your hunger in a parts mapping experiential exercise. We’ll explore who’s hungry, what you’re hungry for, and how to identify when it’s time to eat!

  • Who’s at the Table in your inner world ….
  • How you identify hunger sensations ….
  • How does hunger impact your mood and energy?
Fullness (Feb 17th 4-6p EST):

In this workshop, we’ll spend time defining fullness and satiety and our innate wisdom in knowing when to end the meal. In an experiential exercise, you’ll discover the parts of you at odds with each other around fullness and begin to develop a deeper understanding of their needs and what drives them to fulfill those needs.

  • What is fullness, satiety, satisfaction, and contentment?
  • How do you know when to end a meal?
  • How does fullness impact you?
Body Image (Mar 24th, 4-6p EST):

This workshop encourages exploration of the sensations in our body that affect how we see ourselves and expose the parts expressing those to our compassion. We’ll also see how body diversity is expected, and how we can learn to encourage and respect the variations we see.

  • Define and explore body image.
  • Staying with Sensation so we stop pushing emotions away.
  • Transforming internalized body loathing and shame into liking and accepting your body.
Burdens: Personal, Legacy, Cultural (Apr 28th 4-6p EST)

In this experiential workshop, we’ll set out to discover:

  • How did we become disconnected from our core Self wisdom?
  • Mapping legacy burdens.
  • Offering healing.

These workshops are presented in a cumulative flow and it’s beneficial to attend all four. Yet there’s wisdom in each one. We invite you to attend what you can.
