How can we bring peace and joy to the dinner table?
When we approach food with interest and a feeling of wonder, awe and gratitude, the children experience reverence for the food and for the experience of coming together to eat.
My favorite way to settle the energy at meal time is to light a candle and sing a meal time blessing…
Give thanks to the Mother Earth
Give thanks to the Father Sun
Give thanks to the flowers and the veggies in the garden
Where the Mother and Father are one.
