How to Make Kitchari for Cleansing and Immunity
Monday December 9, 530-7 p.m.
This simple dish made from mung beans and rice is an ancient and healing combination. Eaten at times when the immune system is compromised or for special seasonal cleansing purposes, kitchari is a holy food. You can think of kitchari as the Ayurvedic (and vegetarian!) equivalent to chicken noodle soup. Nourishing for mind, body and soul, kitchari kicks up the metabolism and immune system.
If you’re looking for a simple and wholesome meal to prepare for yourself and your family, or interested in learning why and how Ayurveda uses food for healing, learning how to make kitchari will empower you. Come and share a meal made with local vegetables and organic ingredients, and learn to make this dish hands-on.
Friday December 13, 5:30-7:30
Join Adena at The Ayurvedic Center for discussion, meditation and an evening to de-stress and give to yourself. Learn about the ancient Ayurvedic rituals of self-care, called dinacharya, while sharing tea and a healthy sweet snack (go home with the recipe, too), and be led through relaxing meditation and a self-massage instruction. It will be a women’s only night, in this beautiful and sacred space in Williston. Invite your mother, grandmother, sisters and daughters! Bring a towel and a mug for tea., a notebook if you’d like. Oil and snacks provided. Wear comfortable clothes, that you do not mind getting a little oil on. We will be doing simple, sitting or lying down poses.
