Auberge’s Culinary Team Attended the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa

Executive Chef Robert Curry and the culinary team from Auberge du Soleil were able to get out of the kitchen for a few days to enjoy The 5th Annual “World’s Fair of Pure Food” in Santa Rosa CA.  Over 20,000 farmers and Gardeners were present.  They enjoyed a little education, heirloom produce displays and a few speakers.  The focus of the Heirloom Expo was to educate on the benefits of organic locally grown non GMO foods.   The expo provided plenty of opportunities to explore the world of food in its purest form.  More than 3,000 varieties of heirloom produce was on display and, in some instances, available to taste.

What an amazing event!

Sound Healing with Shannon Sahaja

Associates of Auberge du Soleil were able to participate in a Sound Healing session by Shannon Sahaja.  Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. This is a harmonic attunement, a sound healing for your physical, emotional and spiritual being.  The healing sounds are a rich and unique experience that will alter your consciousness in a wonderful way.  Sound helps create the pathway to this place of stillness the same as a mantra helps you to arrive at the still point of meditation.

Using sound as therapy can provide results for a variety of issues including;

  • Sleep disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress management
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Pain management

Our body, mind and spirit always want to be moving in a direction toward balance, yet we often have too much outer stimulus and noise and not enough time to dedicate to ourselves, which can prevent us from achieving a better state of harmony. Sound has a way of helping us get to the source of this inner peace we all desire.
