Now the time has come to pay it forward. GMFR is offering one of my readers a free one-week stay in a private accommodation between March 1 and June 15, 2012.

How? There are three required entries and one optional entry. Please leave a separate comment below for each entry (so if you did all four, you’d leave four comments, if you only do the required entries, you’d leave three comments).

• In honor of Valentine’s Day I invite you to write an essay on your blog on the role of self-love in your journey to health and why you’d like to go to GMFR. Please reference one of my GMFR posts (above) and provide a link to that post in your essay. Let me know in the comments section below (along with a link to your post) that you have done so. If you do not have a blog, please write your essay in the comments section below. [required]

The Fine Print: Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, February 16.

Meals are included in your stay.

For the FTC: A one-week stay at GMFR ranges from $2,927 to $3,127.

Some Practical Stuff: Green Mountain at Fox Run is an immersion program for women who are interested in a non-dieting approach to health, which includes building a healthy, mindful relationship with food and exercise…and with themselves.

Classes are categorized by tracks, including Foundational Tools/Discovery, Practice, Going Deeper/Reflection, and Personalizing Your Program. Content areas include Introduction/Integration, Mindful Eating, Emotional/Binge Eating, Stress Management, Body Positivity, and Intrinsic Exercise. Personal sessions with GMFR staff members are available at extra cost.

A typical day at GMFR includes a variety of classes addressing nutrition and eating behaviors, fitness and movement, and behavior and emotional health. There is ample opportunity each day for rest, movement, eating, and reflection. There are also specialized programs available. If you have other questions, check out GMFR’s FAQ page.

Thank you and good luck!
