Nourishing Body, Mind, and Spirit
Drawing on influences from the local harvest in Boone to Bombay and even the Caribbean, you’ll enjoy deeply satisfying vegetarian meals. Ayurvedic principles tell us to eat nature—real food grown by sun, soil, wind, and water that is full of nature’s prana, or life force. The chefs at the Art of Living Retreat Center know this, and they know that food prepared with love of the planet and of the person being fed is the best food.
Temporary Dining Protocols
Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we have made some adjustments to our Dining Hall seating and service protocols. Currently, all meals are being served cafeteria-style in the Purna Dining Hall. By incorporating these new service models and touchless practices, we are ensuring higher sanitation standards by keeping the handling of serving utensils to a minimum. We’re also using disposable tableware and not using tablecloths. Everything we do has the safety of our guests and staff in mind.
Main Dining Hall
We grow a variety of fresh and delicious fruits, vegetables, and flowers right here at The Art of Living Retreat Center. Our garden is as much a place for nourishment of the body as it is a place of nourishment for the soul. Walk the paths as many staff, volunteers, and journeyers have before.
Three times a day, 365 days a year, we prepare whole-foods meals with the freshest seasonal ingredients we can find. From the freshly baked bread to the salads crafted from our own garden harvest, there is something to please every palate.
Just a little preview to get your taste buds going…
