Meals

The food is something that I promise you won't forget on this retreat. Nourish your body with wholesome homemade meals as a part of the balance we are seeking to create on this weekend. 

Nicola (owner of Harmony Dawn) has had a life-long passion for food and cooking going back to her childhood. She will be cooking you 6 different meals that are promised to nourish your body and your belly. Her cuisine encompasses international cooking from across the world, as well as specialty diets including vegetarian, vegan, & gluten-free. She is a passionate advocate for fresh, local and organic food whenever possible. Harmony Dawn also grows a variety of organic herbs and vegetables uses ingredients from local organic farms nearby. Nicola uses Yin-Yang principles of balance, as well as the latest scientific findings, in lovingly preparing your meals that are not only appealing to the eye and palate, but healing for the body. Many guests come mainly for the food! (Yes it is that good!!)        

6 Meals are included in your accommodation fee (2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners)
