Nourish: Health and Wellness Microfestival
Nestled in the village at the foot of the majestic Whistler Mountain, The Whistler Conference Centre sets the stage for the expansion of healing, regeneration, and inspiration. Here, health, wellness, and sustainability-seekers will find just what their minds, bodies, and spirits are hungering for.
From natural fermentation of foods, to raw food cooking; from juicing, to ancient approaches to diet and constitution, Nourish will satisfy your hunger for useful, life-changing knowledge. Facilitated by passionate experts and elders in their fields, you will learn from the very best, and come away with vital tools to enhance your wellness for years to come.
Meals throughout Nourish are interactive. Engage in conversation with the Chefs of the food on your table, and savour the bounty of their labour. As we all know, making food choices that fuse health, taste, and the environment is not easy. Gathering for meals and discussion with like-minded friends is a fundamental step toward eating, drinking, and buying better for everyone.
