Spiritual Nourishment at Farm To Table Pittsburgh

The Farm to Table Conference in Pittsburgh is my favorite annual conference. It focuses on what is essential. Keep it local, keep it real. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Germany’s Lower Rhine Valley, Farm To Table is very close to my heart. It supports local farmers, local businesses and the local economy.

For many years I presented I the Food Blessing Meditation every Friday before the Food Tasting and now we added a labyrinth for your spiritual nourishment.

Labyrinths are sacred circles found in every culture around the globe, dating back thousands of years. The labyrinth is a spiritual transformation power tool that answers our call to wholeness. It allows you to reach states of clarity, during troubled times and turmoil. Its single winding path invites you to relax, give up control, flow and trust.

Thank you to everyone who walked the labyrinth at Farm To Table in 2015. It was absolutely mesmerizing to witness strangers meet on the path and then walk together in unison and harmony. It is a great lesson and metaphor for life.

Please enjoy the picture highlights from the 2015 Conference and please mark you calendar for the 10th Anniversary Farm To Table Conference March 18 – March 19, 2016.

The labyrinth was busy throughout the conference. This 7-circuit pattern dates back to 350 B.C. and touches something ancient in our soul. An aspect of ourselves that transcends time and space.
