This workshop takes an integrated approach, showing how closer contact with food, its sources, and our own embodied self promotes connection, self-regulation and vitality. The emphasis will be on awareness and curiousity, and therefore non-judgemental.
Experiential activities, including on the land and with animals, will support contact, authenticity and an understanding of food and its origins. The space, the group and the food served will be an integral part of the experience. Those who wish can walk the land, use the wood fired sauna, sit by the outdoor fire.
