About this Event

? Your Hosts
Valeria & Teagan - two friends with a huge passion and holistic vision for food & nutrition (amongst many others!).
Valeria started her ongoing journey through food in 2020, after many years suffering from digestion issues and struggling in finding a balance between her mind and her body. After being diagnosed with celiac disease, she began to realise the importance of her diet and nutrition in general, developing a sensibility for sustainability and plant based food. After a few years of studies and some culinary experiences while travelling, she’s currently working on her own projects to promote self awareness through food. She’s also working as a Pastry Chef Assistant in a vegan & gluten free bakery in Barcelona, and cooking plant based food for Wellness Retreats. She believes that food is a social action, a medicine and one of the most powerful ways to connect with ourselves and with Earth.
Teagan like many people, has had a complicated relationship with food and nutrition over the years. Starting in her 20s she started to experience issues with her digestion, and began to examine what she was eating and how it impacted her health. Through her learning about food, she began to realise that taking care of her mental state was just as important to feeling her best. Today, Teagan is the founder of Beam Collective, cooks for Wellness Retreats around Barcelona and is a Yoga and Meditation teacher. She believes that the magic of a shared meal goes beyond the table – that it forges connections and nurtures a sense of belonging.
So, what IS a Food Diaries workshop?
Food Diaries was created to give space for fun, connection & learning around the topic of food. We know that the food we choose impacts not only our personal energy levels and overall wellbeing but also the physical environment we share with each other and the planet. Food is much more than what we physically digest, and that’s our premise for the workshop.
What can you expect?
? Unveiling of your Own Story: Embark on a personal journey as you put pen to paper in an individual journaling activity. Explore the depths of your relationship with food, memories, emotions, and insights that have shaped your unique story.
? A Celebration for the Senses: Immerse yourself in a sensory adventure that brings us all together in a communal tasting experience. Through touch, taste, smell, and sight, we'll explore the intricacies of different foods, savouring each moment exploring the connections they bring up. *Food served will be 100% vegan and gluten-free. ?
?️ Share, Connect, Discuss: Gather around our sharing circle, a safe and supportive space where your voice is heard. In this part of the workshop, feel free to share anything that resonates with you – reflections, epiphanies, or simply the joy of being part of this journey. You'll also be invited to engage in an open group discussion centred around a food-related topic, allowing diverse perspectives to intertwine and enrich the conversation.
