Annie Mahon – Things I Did When I Was Hangry: Navigating a Peaceful Relationship with Food

After years of struggling with eating disorders and anxiety around food and eating, Annie Mahon figured that having a path, any path, would be helpful. When she read The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh, she found a path that not only changed her (and her family’s) relationship with food, but also transformed nearly every aspect of her life.

Annie Mahon is an inspired creator of spiritual spaces, an author and an ordained Buddhist mindfulness teacher. She is the founder of the Circle Yoga Cooperative in Washington, D.C., the Opening Heart Mindfulness Community, DC Community Yoga, and DC Yoga Week. Annie has been writing and teaching about mindfulness, parenting, stress and yoga since 2004. Her blog, rawmindfulness.com and social media are popular with mindfulness and yoga practitioners. Annie’s book, Things I Did When I was Hangry: Navigating a Peaceful Relationship with Food (Parallax Press, 2015), documents Annie’s search for sanity in her eating disordered family life, and reveals how mindfulness helped her go beyond the search for perfection and learn to love the moment as it is.

Annie holds many certifications in yoga, Focusing and massage therapy and dabbles in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and has as a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Michigan and a Masters in Religious Studies from Howard University School of Divinity. When not visiting her children, teaching, traveling with her husband, drinking Jasmine tea, writing or walking her dogs, she practices yoga and mindfulness with her community in DC.
