Join us at the Sacred Sunday Disco Soup at the Skip Garden on the theme of Food and Farming as a Sacred Act. With workshops, meditations, movement practices and more, inspired by the principles of spiritual ecology, we will explore how to bring a level of intention into how we grow, harvest, cook and eat our food. It will be an opportunity to bring together food growers and city dwellers of all ages to celebrate and feast on food that would otherwise go to waste, plant and envision with intention, and engage in dialogue around the theme of food, farming and spirituality. It will be both serious and fun, intentional and playful. Bring full hearts, voices, instruments, and poetry!
This Disco Soup is free for all, but activities and the panel discussion will be donation based. Please book in advance to ensure your place as we have limited capacity. Please book your spot here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/sacred-sunday-disco-soup-tickets-33846125673
Activities for the day:
GROUP MEDITATION: This will involve a centering prayer, some breath work and a guided meditation. We will be invited to set intentions for the day, to leave our ‘worldly life’ at the door and enter into a space of conscious action and purposeful intention).
SACRED GROWING, SACRED HARVESTING and CONNECTING WITH OUR FOOD: The disco soup is an opportunity to cook together and to eat together using food which would have otherwise been wasted. Running alongside will be a sacred growing workshop exploring the theme of planting with intention, a sacred harvesting session, and other creative activities.
SACRED EATING: Together we will enjoy a delicious feast made at the Disco Soup. There will be an invitation to connect with the food we are eating, punctuated by short meditations and giving thanks throughout the meal, offering gratitude and practicing mindfulness when eating.
PANEL DISCUSSION AND WORKSHOP: We will be delving into some crucial questions around spirituality, food and farming, asking: do you feel you are connected to your food? do you feel you can love something and still eat it? has food ever been a spiritual experience for you?
