Shannon brings the practice of enriching mind, body and soul through global cuisine and the essence of food as a means to share and nurture harmony in our daily lives,” says Cathy Coleman, executive director of EarthRise at IONS. “Through intentional food preparation, Shannon offers an insightful, engaging approach to the art of symbolic cooking and mindful eating in a way that inspires the use of these skills in a practical every day way,” states Coleman.

Participants will engage in demonstrations, class exercises, hands-on training and full immersion food preparation as well as cooking methods using the timeless practice of ancient cultures combined with modern elements.
