COOKING YOUR LIFE
Led by Ward Bauman and friends
Does cooking intimidate you? Do you wish to connect eating with your spiritual practice? Would you like to understand the basics of reading a recipe and the techniques required? Have you wondered why most great spiritual traditions view food and its preparation as sacred? Then this retreat is for you! Back by request, this retreat is appropriate for beginners as well as those who want to deepen their understanding of the fundamentals of food preparation. We will examine our food from production and purchasing to preparation and eating. We will visit a local farmer’s market to experience Minnesota’s great small farmer tradition. We will work with a wonderful array of food preparation techniques, geared for the needs of those who participate. We will see mirrored in the preparation of foods our own invitation to “cook” with our lives, creatively and mindfully. The emphasis will be on vegetarian fare, focusing on healthy eating and the creative techniques of cooking. This retreat workshop represents an evolution in our retreat work, as we seek to mix the ingredients of our lives to find health, joy and fulfillment! Book early–this retreat is kept small purposefully to accommodate a better teacher/student relationship. Comment from a past participant: “This retreat has changed our lives, from the way we prepare food to the way we eat!”
