Megrette Fletcher became interested in applying mindfulness to food and eating after she began a daily meditation practice in 1999. Realizing the potential value of Mindful Eating, she teamed up with Fred Burggraf M.Ed, an author/publisher, and created Discover Mindful Eating, published in 2005. The concept of Mindful Eating was beginning. Megrette began to dream of creating a multidisciplinary non-profit organization that would offer a clear set of principles to support professionals to include the concepts of Mindful Eating into new and existing health programs. In 2005, the conditions were right, and Jean Kristeller, PhD, researcher and creator of the MB-EAT program, and Dh. Amala, Director of Aryaloka Buddhist Retreat Center, gathered around a kitchen table to discuss creating The Center for Mindful Eating in 2006.
