Sunday Gathering - Mindful Harvest Feasting: A Harvest of Peace Celebration

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2020 (15:00 -16:00)
Teacher : Marcella Friel
Patron Price: $20.00

Join Marcella Friel for a cooking demonstration featuring typical foods of harvest bounty, along with a conversation about the importance of meal prayers and blessings. Harvest of Peace is the time of year when we celebrate the abundance of the earth, and there is no better way to honor the harvest season than through an appreciation of good food and sangha fellowship. You are also invited to bring food you have prepared to share on screen, so bring your harvest time savory dishes and cakes, pastries, and pies and to “share” with all those gathered!
