The correlation between the trait of high sensitivity and emotional eating is undeniable. The highly sensitive person is more likely to be overwhelmed, over stimulated and over aroused by the high level of processing and analyzing that naturally comes with a fragile nervous system. This is precisely where food comes into play. Food becomes an escape route from a world that seems too much to handle. Join Bree and Kate in this six-week class series that aims to educate around the trait of sensitivity while also giving specific tools to those looking to navigate the world without using food as a crutch.

About Kate:

“As a highly sensitive person, I understand how easy it is to get completely lost in the depth of all that we feel. I get how remarkably simple it is to fall into addictions to cope with this depth. Having known numb really well, I empathize with living partly between the worlds of the living and the dead. But most of all, I wholeheartedly grasp what sensitive souls are capable of when they are not struggling with addiction to food, thoughts, and control. Knowing this, I have no choice but to guide them to a place of healing; a place of perceiving the vastness of all they are so that they may contribute to the world with their incredible complexity. The world needs this.” –Kate. Read more about Kate here.
