About The Mindful Kitchen
The Mindful Kitchen exists to fight climate change by bringing people and communities back in touch with nature.
Making a difference begins with understanding that nature isn’t out THERE, it is in YOU.
By practicing nature relatedness much in the same way you practice yoga or meditate, this understanding will continue to grow.
Through our free online material, we guide you towards living a life more aware of your part in nature and more respectful of the constant exchange you are with it.
We use food as a tool in our daily practice because for many of us it is the most tangible recurring and tangible exchange we have nature.
Come along on this journey and experience the change for yourself. Soon you will find yourself changing your daily habits to more sustainable ones and influencing your community to do the same.
Our content is built to be consumed in threes. Start with Storytelling, that will give you knowledge and insights. Then use the Beginner's Mind question to expand how you think about the topic at hand and question what you think you know. From there, move on to the Ritual which you can incorporate into your daily life.
And then, do it again.
