Mindful Eating Weekend Retreat

October 7 - 9, 2022

Friday, Oct 7th- 5:00 pm to Sunday, Oct 9th - 1:00 pm

It can be so easy to lose touch with the basic joys of our life.  With eating, the simple exploration of texture, smell, taste and touch, can bring us into deep presence and ease. What is it like to truly taste a raisin? How often do we just eat, without a cellphone or radio, without distraction?

Chozen Bays Roshi has been teaching mindful eating for decades. We eat to be nourished, body, heart and mind. With mindfulness practices and community support, we can learn together – the art of eating,  and the joys of being nourished.

In this workshop we will discuss the various ways to reclaim the natural joy of food. Meditation, lecture, small group work and formal zen style meals will be part of the structure of the retreat.


All participants must be fully vaccinated and boostered. We will also ask people to take a rapid covid test upon arrival. Thank you for your support! This retreat is in-person only
