A Refreshing Way of Eating - Food For The Soul

We love this place so much that we have visited the Kechara Forest Retreat for a few times this month already. It's a stay away from home, away from the hustle bustle of the city life, and retreat into a place where nature calls and beckons. One will most definitely find it peaceful here. Just look at the greenery, the flowers and what nature has to offer, aren't they just beautiful? It is also a sanctuary where a conscious community is built where we learn not only to respect and nurture the mother earth, but to also nurture our own spiritual path as well.

We brought our family there for a one-night stay, attended the morning puja (prayers) and we even helped out with the green gardening there. It is awesome that the kids get to know where their food actually come from *_^ (apart from just eating it on the plates!) and learn to contribute their effort to give more. Herbs and vegetables planted here are safe as no harmful chemical pesticides are being used. After our puja, we were being served an array of very fresh green-garden-own-grown-produces-made dishes for the day. Look how delicious they are, tasted really GOOD too! 

Life is great indeed when one gets back to the real basics and just bath in what seemed to be lost for some time. It was a great trip and we shall be back here soon! There are lots to do here and many programs to choose from - plant a tree, meditation walk, detox programs, amongst others. In fact, there's one coming up soon *_^ Great idea for a post Chinese New Year body cleansing!

Kechara Forest Retreat is just about an hour drive away from Kuala Lumpur city centre. It is located at a small town of Bentong. Learn more about this beautiful place here.

Till the next time, hope you will have a luminous day. Stay healthy and happy always.
