We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

What does the way we raise, purchase, prepare, and eat our foods say about us, the way we regard our body, and our concern for the world around us? When we study the food-related rituals of other cultures, we learn how to better connect with our own eating experience.

For centuries, the Balinese have offered daily prayers for the entire life cycle of food. The Mayans created each celebratory meal with the “holy trinity” of Mesoamerican cuisine. And the Keralites focused their energies on meeting the deeply personal needs of those for whom they cook.

In engaging exercises, including a full-immersion cooking class, culinary expert Shannon Kring introduces us to the world’s sacred culinary traditions, and ways to call upon them to better nourish our body, mind, spirit, and the planet. We discover the effects of “power” ingredients throughout time; experience conscious shopping, food preparation, and eating; and integrate intentional, symbolic, and elemental cooking in our daily lives.

By engaging in harmony in the kitchen and dining room, we foster lifelong harmony within our body.
