Can’t make it live? After each class, video and audio recordings are available to download and watch anytime.

 
 

Consecrate your health, senses, and kitchen with an edible spiritual journey filled with storied culinary rituals, science-backed recipes, and ancient meditations that reconnect you to the nourishing hearth of the home.

 

When was the last time you consciously engaged all of your senses?

Eastern wisdom traditions refer to such moments as the ultimate act of mindfulness — when spirit finds sanctuary in the simple delights of life through the body.

Few activities offer a more centered yet sublime experience of life than a good meal.

Through food, a tangible awareness of being alive is offered. And as certified nutritionist and therapeutic chef Karen Wang Diggs teaches, when you mindfully prepare your meals, you’re also connected to the greater consciousness of everything that contributed to them.

In this way, mindful cooking is a threshold to the divine interconnectedness of all things — enhancing the flavor of life and illuminating the path to enlightened living.

During this edible spiritual journey with Karen, you’ll reconnect with the nourishing hearth of the home to reclaim the sanctity of cooking and eating… transforming your kitchen into sacred space and your meals into sacred offerings that feed the mind, body, and spirit.

Fusing tasty recipes with modern science as well as ancient culinary rituals, spiritual practices, and meditations, Karen has taught hundreds of students about the symbiotic relationship between what they eat, how they feel, and the overarching quality of their lives.

As you embark on this palatable journey of realization, you’ll learn how to enter higher states of consciousness while preparing meals…

You’ll also discover how to incorporate sound nutritional principles that help alleviate food attachments and addictions and improve some of your most troubling ailments, such as bloating, brain fog, inflammation, depression, and other conditions that prevent you from achieving your highest spiritual potential.

Every week, your journey will begin with a guided Five Senses Meditation that instills relaxation, elevates alpha and theta brain waves, and heightens your senses. Karen will also share powerful recipes for transformation… and close each week out with a culinary ritual that honors the hearth, the Earth, and all beings.

You’ll call the five elements — water, wood, fire, earth, and metal — back to the sacred hearth, create a kitchen shrine for amplifying gratitude through culinary offerings…

… and watch Karen weave nature-made ingredients, ancient Eastern principles, and the Buddhist virtues known as the Four Immeasurables into delectable works of art through a series of culinary demonstrations.

You’ll transform your dishes into edible prayers that are infused with love, compassion, and a deep reverence and appreciation for life…

… explore the alchemy of digestion — its outer, inner, and secret levels of nourishment — and learn how to work with the billions of gut microorganisms that aid in immunity and inform your sense of self.

You’ll learn to balance meals and your body with Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Tastes… the roles of certain spices, herbs, and ancient grains in ceremony… and how to blend your own incense to enhance ceremonial practices.

Ultimately, you’ll rediscover the timeless, nurturing wisdom of mindful cooking within a sacred space…

… developing all the skills you need to cook your way to enlightenment — feeding your body, mind, and spirit.

Join Karen on this edible spiritual journey to reclaim the sanctity of cooking and eating by reconnecting to the nourishing hearth of the home — transforming your kitchen into sacred space and your meals into sacred offerings.

 
 
 

During this edible spiritual journey, you’ll:

 
  • Be guided in meditations that transform ordinary sensory experiences into awakened moments of tasting, smelling, touching, hearing, and seeing
  • Watch Karen demonstrate how to fold empanadas, create mocktails, properly prepare green tea, blend incense, create a torma offering — and prepare a final celebratory meal with you and your classmates
  • Experience culinary rituals that honor your connections with the elements

  • Discover the alchemy of digestion — and its outer, inner, and secret levels of nourishment

  • Create a sacred kitchen shrine and bless it with culinary offerings

  • Learn how to sharpen and care for knives as a spiritual art and meditative practice
  • Create balance in your meals using the principles of the 5 Tastes — and colors that correspond with organs in the body
  • Explore the practice of “just enough” or oryoki — a meditative way of eating that’s practiced in Zen monasteries
  • Discover why the culture of tea, or camellia sinensis, is a vital part of monastic life — and how it facilitates meditation and spiritual development
  • Learn to respect and honor your sources of sustenance by not wasting ingredients — from liver and bones to carrots and onion tops
 
 
 

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational intensive, Karen will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to reclaim the sanctity of cooking and eating through an edible spiritual journey that reconnects you with the nourishing hearth of the home.

 

The Power of Livestreaming Video

 
 

You’ll connect with Karen and experience her teachings through livestreaming video via any connected device. This connection is easy to use and will enhance the impact of Karen’s transmissions. Or you can listen audio-only by phone.

(Can’t make it live? No worries! After each class, the video and audio recordings will be available for you to download or stream in a high-quality format at your convenience.)

Weekly Sessions Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Karen. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to reconnect with the nourishing hearth of the home through an edible spiritual journey that reclaims the sanctity of cooking and eating.

Module 1: The Vipassana Kitchen — Transforming the Kitchen Into Sacred Space (May 11)

 

How do we return the kitchen to its original intention — a sacred gathering spot to connect and nourish the body, heart, and soul?

You’ll begin by getting acquainted with the elements that can be found in your own kitchen and exploring how they connect with you, nature, and the cosmos.

The kitchen is the ancient hearth that contains the five sacred elements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. This week, you’ll harmonize these elements and reclaim your kitchen as a sacred space.

You’ll build a simple shrine in your sacred kitchen for cultivating generosity and transforming food into offerings… and reignite your senses with her Five Elements Spice blend and help from the ancient meditation practice known as vipassana, developed by the Buddha to reach his own enlightenment.

Vipassana means to be mindfully present so that we may see things as they really are. This can be applied to every aspect of cooking in the sacred kitchen. In doing so, every action becomes an opportunity to cultivate enlightened awareness.

You’ll also explore taste as a metaphor for enlightenment, and learn techniques for using your senses mindfully to create spiritual culinary experiences.

Last, Karen will share recipes for igniting your sense of taste and new perspectives on the synergy between your body’s need for nutrition, mindfulness, and spirituality…

… and close class with a guided culinary ritual offering — the first of many.

This week, you’ll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation to transform ordinary sensory experiences into awakened moments of tasting, smelling, touching, hearing, and seeing
  • Explore how knowing the essential nature of one taste liberates the mind
  • Learn a special method to rapidly enhance, deepen, and enliven the sense of taste
  • Discover a unique method to connect with the elements of nature in the hearth-kitchen
  • Learn how to sharpen and care for knives as a spiritual art
  • Watch Karen prepare gomasio in honor of the Mahasiddhas and Zen Masters who became enlightened in the kitchen — and cut carrots for a matchstick carrots and burdock recipe in a beautiful and mindful way
 

Module 2: Nourishing the Body as a Vehicle for Enlightenment (May 18)

 

The Buddha stated, “Your body is precious. It is your vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.”

This week, you’ll explore your body as a sacred container for mind-body-spirit nourishment. You’ll discover the physiological connection between mindful eating and immunity, delve into  the alchemy of digestion — and its outer, inner, and secret levels of nourishment…

… and see how live cultured foods nourish and strengthen your gut-brain-microbiota axis and its relationship to mind-body-spirit healing.

Karen will share how your microbiome — and the billions of microorganisms therein — helps define your sense of self, and why cooking and eating at home honors your body and nature.

You’ll also learn tips for cutting attachments and addictions to sugar, carbohydrates, alcohol, and comfort foods, while developing healthy, spiritually aligned food choices as a path to greater enlightenment.

Last, Karen will share recipes for igniting your sense of smell and balancing your microbiome… and close the week out with a special culinary ritual.

This week, you’ll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation with a special focus on smell
  • Learn a method to heighten your sense of smell — and a practical test to gauge your body’s nutritional status using the olfactory sense
  • Learn how the billions of microorganisms that exist within your gut inform your sense of self
  • Honor the element of metal — and deepen your understanding on how to use knives as a meditative practice
  • Watch Karen prepare sauerkraut live, and receive tips on fermentation
  • Experience the Clouds of Nourishing Fragrance culinary ritual
 

Module 3: Alchemy in a Pot — Seven Stages of Spiritual Alchemy & 5 Methods of Fermentation (May 25)

 

When you embark on a journey of spiritual awakening, alchemy comes into play as your dense self-identity steadily transforms into the gold of enlightenment. The same can be said of the alchemical processes that happen in your sacred kitchen.

This week, you’ll discover the seven stages of spiritual alchemy and the five methods of fermentation — using ancient food preparation methods, including using your hands, to increase connection and mindfulness.

Just as ancient alchemists used processes in their laboratories as external meditations to support inner transformations, traditional methods of preparing food can be used to activate, develop, and understand the transformative processes of our personal alchemical journey.

You’ll also discover how fermented foods are allies on your journey to enlightenment and how the microbiome of the hands influences the taste, nutritional quality, and vitality of food.

Last, Karen will share recipes for igniting your sense of touch and demonstrate how to fold empanadas… closing the week out with a special culinary ritual.

This week, you’ll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation with a special focus on taste
  • Learn a method to heighten your sense of taste — and how this relates to your sense of smell
  • Explore the 7 stages of spiritual alchemy and the 5 methods of fermentation — and how fermented foods are allies on the journey to enlightenment
  • Learn how your gut microbiome influences your thoughts and feelings — and how the microbiome of your hands can affect the outcome of food you prepare
  • Watch Karen demonstrate how to fold empanadas
  • Experience a culinary ritual to honor the earth element and the living organisms of soil
 

Module 4: Cooking With Compassion — Cultivating the 4 Immeasurables (June 1)

 

Cultivating the Four Immeasurables — love, compassion, joy, and equanimity — is a sublime endeavor that enables you to see yourself and others as we truly are… indivisible.

When you follow a recipe, you tend to measure out ingredients in defined amounts. This week, you’ll recognize how everyone is different and requires nutrients that are appropriate for their unique physiology.

In doing so, you’ll learn to cook with the Four Immeasurables to expand your consciousness into limitless states of generosity and love that cannot be measured, increasing your measure of love and joy to honor and celebrate your sources of sustenance…

… while extending loving kindness and compassion toward yourself as you accept the diet that’s best for your body, mind, and spirit.

You’ll also explore the Five Tastes of Traditional Chinese Medicine and how focusing on them when preparing each meal connects you with nature and fine-tunes your body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Last, Karen will share recipes for igniting your sense of sight and lifting your mood… closing the week out with a special culinary ritual.

This week, you'll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation with a special focus on sight
  • Learn how seeing through a heart of compassion adds its own flavor to your culinary creations
  • Discover spices and herbs that enhance your experience of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s 5 Tastes
  • Cultivate compassion and equanimity regarding the ethics of eating meat
  • Respect and honor your sources of sustenance by not wasting ingredients — from liver and bones to carrots and onion tops
  • Watch Karen demonstrate how to create a mocktail
  • Experience a culinary ritual to honor the element of wood as a process of your connection with earth and sky, and transformation
 

Module 5: Zazen in Motion — Merging Form & Emptiness (June 8)

 

In Buddhism, the Heart Sutra states that “form is emptiness, emptiness is form.”
Contained within the words of this sutra is the condensed revelation of the Doctrine of Two Truths, which is that of relative and ultimate reality.

This week, you’ll honor this ancient text in your sacred kitchen and merge the states of form and emptiness by first showing reverence to the ingredients you use in the preparations of a meal… and offering it to the benefit of all beings.

You’ll explore the Zen practice of Temple Cooking, or shojin ryorishowing respect and gratitude to all sentient beings and the cyclical dynamics of nature by selecting and cooking with ingredients that are local, in season, and sustainable.

You’ll learn to balance meals and your body with the principles of the Five Tastes, discover the benefits of cooking and eating from a place of deep inner stillness… and gain new insights into the nature of tea and its potential role in enlightenment.

Last, Karen will share recipes and practices for igniting your sense of hearing and optimizing flavor… closing the week out with a special culinary ritual.

This week, you’ll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation with a special focus on hearing
  • Learn to focus on hearing and appreciation of silence as the audible emptiness which allows our inner souls to be heard
  • Create balance in your meals using the principles of the 5 Tastes — and colors that correspond with organs in the body
  • Explore the practice of “just enough” or oryoki — a meditative way of eating that is practiced in Zen monasteries
  • Discover why the culture of tea, or camellia sinensis, is a vital part of monastic life — and how it facilitates meditation and spiritual development
  • Watch Karen demonstrate how to properly brew green tea
  • Experience a culinary ritual to honor the element of water with cups of elixirs
 

Module 6: Puja in Your Sacred Kitchen — Ceremonious Spices & Herbs for the Physical & Spiritual Body (June 15)

 

Pujas, or offering ceremonies, are done in many spiritual traditions as a form of prayer, gratitude, and reverence.

There are many aspects of a puja that correlate directly with what you do every day in your own kitchen. This week, you’ll explore puja in depth, including the elements of a puja and how the five senses are represented in them…

… and gain a solid understanding of how to use this sacred ceremony in a simple yet reverential manner while preparing a meal.

You’ll learn the role of certain spices, herbs, and ancient grains in pujas — and how to make a torma ritual cake as an offering.

Last, Karen will share ceremonious recipes and practices for igniting your “sixth” sense … and close the week out with a special culinary ritual.

This week, you’ll also:

  • Be guided in the 5 Senses Meditation with a special focus on the “sixth” sense of proprioception and intuition
  • Discover a selection of spices and herbs that are appropriate for offerings — and how they benefit your physical and spiritual body
  • Discover how to prepare ancient grains for optimal digestion, nutrition, and transformation
  • Watch Karen demonstrate how to create an incense recipe
  • Experience a culinary ritual to honor the element of fire with a simple homemade incense recipe
 

Module 7: Cooking the Sacred Meal — A Prayer of Preparation (June 22)

 

In this final class, you’ll review what you’ve learned thus far and receive tips for maintaining your sacred kitchen and spiritual culinary practices…
… and then cook a meal with Karen, using both the functional and spiritual aspects of sacred cooking that you’ve explored.

You’ll also create an offering to your sacred kitchen shrine, dedicating your sacred space and all meals prepared therein to the nourishment of all beings.

Karen encourages you to gather ingredients for this meal ahead of time — or you can also just follow along by watching her demonstration.

During the last class, you’ll:

  • Deepen your 5 Senses Meditation to transform ordinary sensory experiences into awakened moments of tasting, smelling, touching, hearing, and seeing
  • Create an offering to your sacred kitchen shrine
  • Receive an overview of the recipes, ingredients, and their relevance for this class
  • Prepare a meal with your classmates and Karen as she focuses on the most important aspects of the past six weeks so you can maintain your sacred kitchen and spiritual culinary practices
  • Learn tips for processing and integrating course content as a daily practice
  • Experience a closing offering and prayers while dedicating your prepared meal to the nourishment and benefit of all sentient beings

“[Karen] truly is a master and so much more.”

Last year, I took an online cooking class from Karen Wang Diggs. In the past, when I tried fermentation recipes on my own, the process remained a mystery. I wasted a lot of produce until I took Karen’s class. Karen made the process simple, creative, and flexible. She helped me perfect my beet kvass and other cultured foods and beverages the past year. She truly is a master and so much more. I highly recommend her thoughtful, enjoyable classes!

So glad that I decided to take Karen’s detox workshop! She provided me with so much information about how to eat, and thanks for encouraging me to go gluten-free.
