About the event
Great choice! Our one-day cooking retreats give you a wonderful taste of Te Whenua. You will learn to cook a selection of seasonal plant based dishes whilst also getting a taste of meditation, some contemplation, and of course good conversation! The dishes we create during the day will be our delicious shared lunch. This day retreat is sure to be a precious time-out which will be rich in opportunities for learning, taking rest, and joyful connection.
This month we are doing something a little different, and looking at the diets of those regions of the world that have the longest life expectancy alongside the best health expectancy - various areas of the world known as Blue Zones.
There are 4 key localities that have been identified and extensively researched as having the healthiest residents - regions of Sardinia, Greece, Costa Rica and Japan. And guess what? They eat a predominantly whole-food plant-based diet.
During this one-day retreat we will also contemplate other lifestyle habits of blue-zone residents which play a part in them living healthy active lives into their 90's and even 100', whilst co-creating a shared lunch inclusive of as many 'blue zone' elements as we can!
Leave feeling inspired, informed, with a range of do-able and delicious recipes.
By clicking RSVP and submitting your details, we will be able to respond to any questions you may have, confirm availability, and we will book you in once you are happy with the details and arrangements! We look forward to hearing from you.
If you wish to stay overnight at Te Whenua on the evening of the retreat this may be possible - please enquire for availability
