The kitchen is usually the center of the household, whether one lives with a family, in a couple or on one's own. It's not just a place for food preparation and storage, it tends to also be a psychological center, the place where we nourish ourselves and others. Yet kitchens are often perceived and used as a utilitarian space, absent of holiness and a sense of the sacred. Creating a Sacred Kitchen involves several key elements that begins with mindfully de-cluttering and organizing the space so it is appetizing, peaceful and beautiful. It ends with the commitment to bless our kitchen activities, not just eating, as way to help sanctify the space. The steps in between involve how to sanctify pots and pans, eating utensils and dishes and much more. Please join us in learning ways to create a sacred kitchen that will elevate cooking, eating and cleaning into a divine activity and a blessing of the heart.
