Event description
East meets East - explore views from two Eastern traditions about the sacredness of mealtime.

About this Event

The goal of this interactive workshop is to enhance your relationship with food.

Join Troy & Eszter, both Ayurvedic Health Consultants, and Dan, an ordained Zen Priest, as they compare and contrast two mind-body philosophies and share how ancient teachings are relevant today.

Ayurveda considers a balanced meal to have all "Six Tastes". HOW you eat can often be more important than WHAT you eat.

Zen treats each moment as an opportunity to experience the deeper truth of who we are through meditative awareness; bringing such attention to eating can have dramatic impacts on our lives and our communities.

Who Are These People?
