The Mindful Cook Retreats at Breathing Space, Norfolk.

Why not come and join me at a stunning venue in beautiful Norfolk for The Mindful Cook retreat? A weekend of relaxation and time away from distractions to focus on food, get inspired and have fun!

Join me, Josie (The Mindful Cook), and other guests for two nights at a beautiful venue for a retreat you won’t forget.

The Mindful Cook retreats are based in the kitchen, but are not a traditional cookery course. You will definitely learn, through demonstrations and taking part in simple food preparation, how to create healthy dishes that you can recreate at home. You will leave with a folder stuffed full of recipes and inspiration. But that’s not all! You will get some practical advice and guidance on how to apply Mindfulness to your eating habits and an opportunity to re-think your relationship with food.

The weekend will feature some creative foodie activities, the chance to taste some new flavours and to share wholesome meals in great company.  It will get you thinking about your own experiences with food and how food features in your life. But don’t worry! We won’t be stroking a pear for hours on end, this retreat is designed to provide you with realistic, usable techniques that you can use every day.

You will get to take time out in a beautiful place, get inspired, leave the retreat with the recipes and know-how to recreate some healthy meals at home, and reset, raring to go!

A mindful meditation will also be included in the weekend, run by one of the fantastic therapists at Breathing Space.

I had the most fantastic time at this retreat – it was relaxing but we packed loads in ! Josie is a brilliant cook and her passion and love are in everything she does – I highly recommend this course as an enriching and inspirational experience

The weekend includes two nights bed and breakfast at the Beautiful Breathing Space in Norfolk (details below), an evening meditation and all your meals. I aim to include at least one vegan and one gluten-free dish in each food retreat. NB: If you would like to attend a retreat that focuses solely on either of these areas please get in touch as I intend to arrange these according to demand.  Further information on what you will get out of coming on a retreat here.
