An Online silent Meditation and Cooking retreat
Apart from teaching mindfulness, you may not know that I am a Ballymaloe trained chef, and I have been cooking for retreats for a number of years.
The idea of holding a meditation and cooking retreat came after many people kept asking for the recipes – and together with Marjó Oosterhoff of Passaddhi we have held them twice a year since 2016
Since we cannot yet meet in person, and after cancelling last year retreats, Marjó and I have decided to offer it online.
Marjó, will guide the silent meditation sessions, while I will take care of the cooking.
We’ll do this in a cook-along style, you will receive the ingredient list and recipes beforehand so that we can be preparing together a simple vegan meal, in a ”cook along” style. Of course you can decide to simply watch!
The cooking part
On Saturday and Sunday we will be preparing and cooking a simple vegan lunch consisting of a main course, a salad or two, and a dessert. Saturday supper will be a one pot dish.
Outlined here is the schedule of the retreat
Start Friday 16 April at 8 pm with introduction and sitting meditation.
Saturday morning and Sunday morning: sitting and cooking lunch.
Saturday afternoon sitting and cooking a simple supper
Saturday evening feedback and a short guided practice.
It’s also fine to do just the cooking sessions [although it would be good to start off together on Friday evening, and be together on Saturday evening], or doing only the meditation sessions.
Marjó and I offer this retreat on a donation basis. Bookings with Marjó, firstname.lastname@example.org
