Food Yoga Workshop

Australian born, Paul Turner (aka Yogi Priya), director of Food for Life Global is currently on a tour presenting FOOD YOGI workshops. The 1 – 3 day workshops present the philosophy of Food for Life as it relates to food choices, lifestyle, respect for nature and spirituality.

The presentation is based on notes from Yogi Priya’s yet to be published book, The YOGA of EATING – a 300 page manifesto of the Food Yogi lifestyle with a specific emphasis on introducing a Food Offering Meditation.

The idea behind the book was inspired by the founder of Krishna Temple, Swami Prabhupada, who said that “everyone should get a chance to take prasadam…” He believed strongly that through the liberal distribution of prasadam the whole world could become peaceful and prosperous.”

Prasadam is a Sanskrit word that means mercy, and specifically refers to food that has been prepared with loving intention and then offered in love to God. The meaning of Swami Prabhupada’s statement is that clean, non-violent foods that are prepared with loving intention have the ability to unite people in a loving bond. We’ve all had experience of this when we’ve sat down to a meal prepared with love on festive days.

Because food is the most basic necessity of life it behooves us to honor the blessing of having food on our table, and even more importantly making sure that everyone else has food as well. This can only happen when we genuinely feel compassion and respect for all living beings and it is this universal respect that is fundamental to a Food Yogi lifestyle.

The purpose of the Food Yogi course is to introduce students to the culture of spiritual hospitality and the importance of food on their spiritual journey. Students learn how to achieve optimum health by practicing the Food Yogi diet and lifestyle, which includes, what to eat, when to eat, water therapy, a food offering meditation, conscious eating and raw food demonstrations.

The Food Yoga workshop covers a variety of subjects, including:

  • Metaphysics of food
  • Sacred Foods and Alchemy
  • Sacred Geometry of Food
  • The importance of water
  • Food Politics
  • Spiritual Hospitality
  • The 10 Characteristics of a Food Yogi
  • Food Offering Meditation
  • Conscious Eating
