Cambodia Cooking Vacation With Focus on Menopause

Program

Sacred Space for Menopause

The transition into menopause invites you to cocoon, increasing your time to rest and restore, to allow you to tune into your inner being and discover by yourself the way you want to live the years ahead.

This transition is part of a mystery, an alchemical journey…Cooking allows you to connect with that mystery, the mystery of life, to make alchemy with the ingredients and your hands, to rest in the flow and relax into just being. The kitchen gives you the choice to enter the path -wherever you feel comfortable- of complete self-acceptance, resting in the confidence that only the wise woman inside can provide.

Your kitchen is not simply a place for food preparation. It’s a sacred space, a sanctuary for self-discovery and communion.

Claudia is here to show you how the kitchen transforms into a place of healing. You will cook, meditate, get insights, and wander around the Cambodian lands and ancient temples.

This vacation offers a blend of culinary therapy alongside, mindfulness-based coaching, meditation, neuro-psycho-spirituality, and the healing power of nature.

Why a 1-on-1 Immersion?

This unique one-on-one immersion is an opportunity to deep dive together into a journey of transformation, where we build a woman-to-woman relationship to tap into our inner wisdom and create a safe and intimate space where you can listen to your inner voice to get clarity and vision.

You will learn bespoke techniques to self-regulate yourself in moments of hesitation, doubt, and uncertainty, which are very common states during the transition into menopause.

A personalized immersion helps you to work at a physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual, creative, and spiritual energetic level to experience your wholeness with tools designed for you at your unique rhythm.

Activities

  • Discover how the alchemical process of menopause mirrors what happens in the kitchen
  • Visit local markets to select fresh, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients, while immersing yourself in the Cambodian culture.
  • Engage in hands-on cooking lessons, where you’ll master the art of preparing wholesome, delicious plant-based meals infused with the essence of mindfulness.
