Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of what is happening in the present moment, to be conscious of all that is going on within and all that is happening around you, with an awakening heart and mind. Mindful eating is the continuation of a mindful life. Being present helps us make purposeful choices around food and eating. During this day long program, we will consider how the world we live in, Earth's rhythms, and our body rhythms affect how, when, and what we eat. We will take time to share stories and reflect on how we can come back to food as nourishment and the act of eating as sacred ritual. You will learn a few simple body based mindfulness practices, pre and post eating rituals and take home a few seasonal recipes to try.
This program will include a guided mindful lunch with gentle movement for all bodies. Please wear comfortable clothes.
