What

Immersions provide hands-on cooking experience with teacher/mentors and guided curriculum options. 

They are designed to integrate the training’s principles and increase value of the depth and breadth of the Open Classroom. 

Delve into understanding the relationship between self, food, and preparation methods that amplify the nutritional density and bio-availability of ingredients. 

This approach is for individuals wanting accountability and connection with teacher/mentors, but do not require chef skill topics or diploma.

Why

A structured scheduled curriculum increases learning exponentially. 

Study and practice sessions to do on your own, in your kitchen and then experience live lesson/labs from your kitchen.

Teachers see your work, test your understanding, meet you where you are. 

Mentorship moves you forward. 

Small group or individual live sessions to share your experience and learn from others. Your cooking station in your kitchen is set up to allow teachers help you respond to significant health or environmental objectives.

How

Schedule an immersion from the website selection or from within the online classroom.  

Look to the time of day and day of week you want to study or select by designated teacher/mentor who will guide you through the content while you are cooking in a live, virtual lab/meetings. 

If you enroll in a training without scheduling the immersion, you can join an immersion from the calendar within the classroom.  

If you are beginning your membership with an immersion you will be enrolled into The Essentials For Becoming A Natural Cook and will have access to both the training option and the immersion schedule you selected.

Which

The Essentials — Guided Immersion follows a specific curriculum within the Essentials classroom.  This is creates a fast-tract to integrating The Language of Intuitive Cooking™ with the Fundamentals of plant-based whole food cooking and meal composition.  Requires 12 hours over two weeks of preparation before the immersion sessions begin.

Improvisation Immersions are open topic.  The group attending may be working on different topics. The goal is to find an ingredient or a cooking method to focus on. Then we apply The Language of Intuitive Cooking and see what happens. Learning happens on many levels.  Trust, knowledge, listening, courage, and outrageously delicious learning. 

What it looks like
