Food is fuel for the body and nourishment for the soul. It connects to the entire spectrum of one’s being. What you eat, how you eat, and when you eat can reflect deeper meaning and actions in your life. This colorful and creative workshop will allow you to experience how your food choices and eating behaviors impact your 7-part chakra (psychoneuroendocrine) system. With a variety of activities, we will journey through the many facets of food, from physical to energetic, moving through the subtle connections food has with emotions, thoughts, love, truth, intuition, and spirituality.
