Compassionate Chefs Cafe hosted another great party!
A more intimate group of people gathered at the Compassionate Chefs Cafe on December 8 for food, drinks, henna and dancing. $4555 was raised, and we would like to ask your help in reaching our goal of $6000.
This year is especially important, since the home of the Tenderloin After School Program suffered a fire. The program has re-located to another spot and is working on rebuilding. They hope to be in their permenent home in about a year. As always, 100% of the funds raised are split evenly between TASP and the Ghandi Ashram of Ahmedabad, with nothing held back for expenses. Look for our next event in May 2014! Compassionate Chefs Cafe.

New Delhi Restaurant Introduces the Mindfully Eating Workshops
January marks the start of the wellness and intent season
On Friday, January 17th, The New Delhi Restaurant will hold its first “Mindfully Eating” workshop. After two years of planning, this workshop series will launch with guide Vinita Jacinto conducting the workshops for groups of ten. The focus of each workshop is for the participants to learn to savor each moment of their eating experiences and Be Transformed!
“Eating is something we do every day,” say’s Ranjan Dey, “but with the frantic pace of modern life, we have forgotten how to experience the finer details of each dish or morsel. Enjoying a meal should be almost like taking a mini-vacation. It should rest you, relax you, and spiritually enrich you.” www.MindfullyEating.com!
