foods of the heart
from May 6 to 13, 2019 in Portugal
yoga, meditation and deep feeding
A designed and animated retreat through Carole Simonelli and Valerie Duvauchelle
An invitation to let the energy of summer penetrate us in this transition from one cycle to another. A time of degeneration to share together, in a place surrounded by nature to reconnect with the sensuality of natural and raw food.
The infinite body manifests in the space created by meditation and in the act of nourishment;
By the emptiness that connects in the erasure of separation, by the feeling of interdependence that gives rise to compassion and responsibility, eating becomes the experience of integration of the world itself.
this experience will be under the sign of fire, an element of summer, with also the reconnection in the kitchen of our atavistic part.
Listen, feel, taste this space is the program offered by carole simonelli and Valerie Duvauchelle.
Food as a way of instant awakening translates into welcoming abundance of life that passes through the preparation of meals in silence, the 6 flavors and the 5 contemplations.
Dates: May 6 to 13, 2019
