Mindful Cooking Retreat (Vegan)

Location: Metta Meditation Center (MMC) in Janesville

This three-day mindful cooking retreat is arranged due to many requests from our noble friends who have been to the MMC and enjoyed the meals provided during our retreats. They are inspired to eat healthier

During this retreat, together we’ll learn how to practice mindfulness while preparing and cooking food; how to cultivate healthy eating habits, as well as cultivating joy as nourishment, both for our selves and our loved ones.

We will demonstrate how to prepare a few popular vegan recipes and a few South Asian dishes. You will also have a chance to participate in mindful prepping if desired; the role may vary depending on the number of participants. You will also have a chance to practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, doing mindful exercises and/or yoga and/or chi gong, listening to Dharma talks, practicing noble silence, mindful eating, and learning the art of mindful cooking.
