Lots of images may come to mind when you picture autumn in the Hudson Valley — from apple-picking to fall foliage to farmers markets. But one more image can be added to that list this weekend: Swellness. The 4 of us, and our “Roving Band of Imaginers” are traveling this weekend for our 5th retreat. The themes are: (1) Mindfulness, and (2) Food.
We’ll be spending much of the day on Friday at the Omega Institute. Omega was founded on the holistic worldview that the well-being of each of us is deeply connected to the well-being of all living things. We will be taken on a guided meditation session, and explore how “mindfulness” can be applied in the commercial marketplace of the future.
On Saturday, we’ll be visiting the Culinary Institute of America, the world’s premier culinary college. While there, we will delve deeper into the sensory aspects of food and the eating experience, as well as explore the intersection between mindfulness and food.
We are excited for our next journey…!
