The food we eat is usually the first thing to come under review when deciding to live a healthier life. There’s a lot of information out there about various diets to assist with a range of health concerns.
During this weekend retreat, we will explore the many health and healing benefits of plant-based wholefoods backed by solid research and good common sense. You will enjoy lovingly prepared vegetarian meals, learn how to prepare them for yourself and be inspired by the potential for food to maximise your vitality.
Together we will lay the foundations for health, weight management and overall wellbeing through mindfulness meditation, nutritional theory and practical cooking demonstrations.
There will be time to relax and explore the beautiful natural environment and nourish your body and mind.
At this retreat you will:
- Learn about the benefits of a wholefood plant-based way of eating
- Learn how food can nourish not only our body but also our mind, emotions and spirit
- Learn to bring mindfulness into how we think about the way we source, prepare and enjoy food
- Learn how simple it can be to eat well through inspirational practical cooking demonstrations
The peaceful healing environment will help you to integrate what you are learning away from the noise of everyday life, and we’ll do the dishes!
