About the event

Let nature be thy food.

May creativity and community nourish you.

And may one's own company be the ultimate sustenance.

If you've ever fasted before you know what a powerful and gratifying experience it can be. Sometimes it's challenging, other times surprisingly easy. Or perhaps you've always wondered what it was like to fast but never tried. What would a day or two be like without eating? What happens when we take a break from food focus? What benefits, what discoveries might arise?

This very special gathering puts the focus on connecting with self, others, and nature...all with more presence and availablitiy to the each unfolding the absence of food prep, cooking, eating, and cleaning. Together we will embark on a 24 hour fast (no food or drink other than water). There will be plenty of activities in our schedule as well as spaciousness and free time. Relax, play, make art, swim, sunbathe, journal, meditate, engage in deep conversation, nap, you name it the choice is yours. However you choose to spend your time, notice what emerges and cultivate an attitude of gratitude. This simple yet profound choice to not eat for a day is a precious gift to yourself and others!
