Mindful Cooking

Mindful cooking, mindful eating, being mindful of everything around you.  Living in the present moment.  Have you tried it lately?  I love cooking.  It’s very therapeutic for me but I think I did learn this in school.  Cynthia Lair, the speaker in this video, was a teacher of mine at Bastyr and she talks about how she teaches her students to be mindful while cooking.  And yes it’s true, she did make us cook in silence one time…silence!  I have never been good at that and I believe she did come over a couple times to remind me what we were focusing on that day.  Hahahah…whoops.  But I do always think of that class and be mindful while cooking, but just everything actually.  It’s amazing how it takes you away….no calgon necessary!
