– Eat whole food, plant-based meals and experience the physical experience of non-addictive food
– Learn about plant-based diets as a solution for eating issues, healthy weight loss or maintenance, and overall health
– Engage in meditations and other practices to connect to our inner relationship with food, remove barriers, and heal wounds
– Participate in fun cooking instruction with Lewis Freedman, RD, and Priscilla Timberlake, hosts of Friday Macro Dinner and authors of The Great Life Cookbook
