Sacred Space and Natural Rhythms

Hands on Natural Nutrition Cooking workshops, exploring our relationship with the season and ourselves, trusting the wisdom of the body.

Four cooking workshops for the novice, the inquisitive or experienced. Using the 5 element theory as a context to explore how the seasons effect changes in relation to specific body organs we will find out how to find balance and harmony within.

This series of four workshops is an introduction to The 5 Element System, forming a complete set. Giving you a clear picture of how they energetically interact and influence the body’s expression allowing for the wisdom of the body to adjust and negotiate the ever changing seasonal cycles.

We will be creating a lunch-time selection of vegetarian savoury dishes and sweet desserts to tempt the taste buds. Learn how to play with different flavours to nourish and sustain us, using high quality locally sourced ingredients.

Participants can choose to take part in any one workshop or all four dates for maximum understanding and benefit.

The workshops will take place on Thursday 29th March, Thursday 28th June , Thursday 27th September and Thursday 22nd November 2018.
