Chef


These were some of the photos of the Cook & Dine event last night, posted on social media. The director of Aurora Behavioral Health, a therapeutic yoga-based program for the treatment of eating disorders, texted me at the end of the evening: "Your beautiful daughter pulled off another amazing event for us! You should be so proud. We love her and are never giving her up!" She is the older sister of one of my daughter's lifelong friends, which is how she knew to tap my girl for this mindful eating project. She gave permission for me to repost these photos.


I am so proud. My girl is really enjoying herself and the clients she's leading through the preparing of nourishing and delicious meals with wholesome, satisfying ingredients. She's thinking now that she loved working with old people last summer, and now this, another therapeutic setting, and maybe she's supposed to be involved with food in a healing way. Who knows where all this will lead her? Best of all, she's learning as she teaches, and isn't that always the best way to learn? It's like the old koan: Whatever you need, give that. I'm learning, too.
