The Gift of Food: Exploring Our Personal and Cultural Relationship with Food [Workshop]

Saturday, November 11
9:30am-12pm EST
The Center at Fisher House (211 W. Fisher Ave, Greensboro, NC)

Additional information

Explore nature’s incredible gifts of sustenance and how we can feed ourselves in ways that call us to dance joyfully within this circle of life.


In this 1/2 day workshop, facilitated by Susan Gladin, we will preview the spring semester’s course and begin examining the ways we feed ourselves and our families – right before the Thanksgiving holiday season!


We will approach the concepts of food and health from many perspectives:

  1. How have our inherited worldviews and framing stories shaped the ways we humans meet our need for sustenance? What are the cultural stories we’ve inherited about the earth, our hunger, our bodies, and our food? How have these stories shaped our food systems, the ways we shop and the ways we eat?
  2. What levels of awareness do we bring to our relationship with food?
  3. From here we’ll examine the role our food plays in the interchange of resources and in the health and well-being of our own lives, our families’, and that of the entire ecosystem.

Please note: While we’ll focus on many aspects of food and health, we will not be discussing dieting and weight loss.
