First “Spring” Veg Out Tomorrow

Anna Guth ’14 just called me while I was in the shower to ask me to post this event. And it’s so important that here I am writing to let you know the deets on Veg Out:

Come and enjoy a delicious, vegetarian, and locally grown meal at Buddhist House this Saturday! We will have a mindful eating meditation at 6:30 and the main meal will begin at 7:00.

The VegOut team is very excited to be partnering with Buddhist House because we believe that mindful eating and mindfully sourcing your food are inextricably connected. Mindfully eating is bringing all of your awareness to what you’re putting in your mouth. Mindfully sourcing is focusing on local and organic food sustaining our communities and ourselves. If you can help cook at Earth House, Farm House, Out House, or Buddhist House from 12-4 p.m. tomorrow, then come on over!


Date: Saturday (TOMORROW!)
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Place: Buddhist House
Tickets: $3 at the door

Mindful Meal at BuHo

Becky Schisler ’14 mindfully writes in:

Join Buddhist House this Friday evening for a mindful meal! Mindful eating means bringing all of your awareness to what you’re putting in your mouth—keeping conversation to a minimum, slowing way down and savoring each and every bite. It’s a delicious and wonderful way to experience food.

Dinner will be followed by dessert, tea, music, and Sufi/Zen poetry.

Everyone’s encouraged to bring a dish to share!

Also, please bring your own silverware, plates and cups.

RSVP to rschisler(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date:   Dec. 2
Time:   6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Place:  Buddhist House (356 Wash)
