An overnight trip cum outdoor workshop towards a deeper appreciation of every meal, every mouthful, and every ingredient.

When was the last time you truly paid attention to what you were eating? Do you remember the flavour of the food that you enjoyed the most in the last couple of days or weeks? What all details do you remember about that very exciting meal, the texture, the smell, the appearance or say the energy? When did you truly savoured the experience of food coming to your plate?

To actually taste that food, every mouthful, to try to be with it in a very sensual way without being distracted is pure mindfulness and meditation. The pure experience of eating is a mindful delight and brings calm, clarity and grace to every meal. So, are we eating just for our body, mind or for our soul too? Let's take a pause and learn together to explore food, whenever and wherever we eat. Let's understand how food nourishes us and what foods help us stay healthy and connected with self and nature.

This is an invitation to come and join for a food meditation gathering along with short hiking at the forest near Pavagadh. This workshop aims at transforming our relationship with food by focusing on how and why of eating, encouraging a more holistic point of view.

This curated journey of food meditation is an experience that will make you think on various mindful ways of sourcing your food, selecting your food, preparing them with love with unbiased and holistic approaches comprehending knowledge from various traditions and culture, and then most importantly eating them attentively.

This gathering would be ideal for people who come with a willingness to be still in nature. Anybody above 12 years can join this workshop.
