February’s Theme: Nourishing the Heart: In these emotion-full times, we invite you to practice a tender gaze towards yourself and others. Can we invite tenderness in a time of pain? Inspired by Tara Brach’s Tenderness Revolution

Both advocates of self-nourishment, Mother and Daught team Leslie and Michelle come at it from different angles:

LESLIE, the Organic Gourmet, has devoted her life to teaching hands-on cooking, and creating nourishing meals that are not just good for you, but pleasurable and good for the planet.

MICHELLE is a movement facilitator whose work pulls from experiences with the Feldenkrais method, Dance Improvisation, Meditation, Journaling, Authentic Movement, Nonviolent Communication, Body-Mind Centering and Performance. She strives to interweave these methods to increase connection to self, others, and the earth.

*The Contemplative Feast is a once a month series to relax, reflect and recharge in an intimate setting nestled in the woods*

Space is limited. Please email to pre-register
