The Zen of Baking

With Rusan Dale Kent and Korin Charlie Pokorny
June 1-4, 2015 (Monday-Thursday)

No experience necessary.

Learn how to combine flour, water, yeast, time and loving attention to form a variety of delicious baked goods.

The activity of mixing dough, letting it rise, forming loaves, and baking bread is a potent and nourishing path of practice. Please share with us the pleasures of Zen that can be found by nurturing colonies of yeast – inviting them to help us as we transform our simple ingredients into wholesome, nutritious, life giving food. Our days of work with the baking ovens will be paced by opportunities to enjoy the beautiful natural setting and amenities of Tassajara, as well as the option to begin each day practicing ancient self-nourishing forms of qigong, tai chi, and zazen meditation.
