pastamadre retreat


Re-discover yourself in daily tasks

  • Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd of September 2023

LANDHAUS ROSENWINKEL, Rosenwinkler Dorfstraße, 16909 Rosenwinkel, Brandeburg
with Maria-LucreziaFrank and Sabina

We live in challenging times: Our days are often tightly timed, technical devices determine our daily routine, and we often miss the time to take a breath. While we are working or focused on tasks, the needs of our body are completely forgotten:

We don't feel that we are hungry, thirsty or tired. We don't move for hours.

We have lost the natural and deep connection to the inner body.

Chopping Vegetables

How do we get back in touch with ourselves?

A first step towards this would be to focus less on the tasks ahead or to get stuck in thoughts of past experiences. It is necessary to come back to the here & now. Because "here & now" is the only place where I can truly BE.


Our experiences show us that we have two tools to do this: Meditation and Cooking.


We combine these two tools in our retreat.

In the simple actions of the day we find the meditative practice that enables us to reconnect with ourselves again. Many people find the preparation of our daily food a burden, we see it as an opportunity - a path. During the weekend at LANDHAUS ROSENWINKEL , we will experience the mutual benefits for body, mind and environment regarding the preparation of our food as an act that is as conscious as it is meditative.

How can this succeed?

We want to develop and practice skills that enable us to refocus our attention on the "here & now". We start with what we have at our disposal all the time: the body.

What happens to me when I cut the vegetables?

What sensations do I perceive?

What do I smell, hear, taste?

How do I move while cooking?

In the retreat we explore these questions with very simple exercises.

The way we prepare food for our body will at the same time nourish our spirit, our soul.

We will prepare our food exclusively on a plant basis.
