The Coniunctio Gastronomique: God Becomes Flesh
February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST
Cooking, like alchemy, is the transformation of basic ingredients into refined substances. Psychologically, this alchemical process represents the development of the personality. Understanding the psyche through the art and practices of cooking can heal the mind-body split that is the primary wound of modern life. The food we purchase or grow, cook and eat, link us to the cosmos: then God becomes flesh, (in-carne). We become what we eat. The lecture invites us into the sensuous, alchemical temenos of the kitchen.
