Mindful Cooking Retreat


By popular request, we will offer a weekend of mindful cooking, introducing you to some of our favorite vegan recipes.  Mindful cooking brings joyful eating leading to happy living! As our teacher has said, cooking good food is one way to bring happiness to our loved ones.

We will be making Pho, vegan fish (seaweed wrapped tofu), vegetarian pie and spring rolls.
