“Three times a day we get to express our values through food.”
- Michael Pollan, Author, Journalist, & Food Activist
Our fifth mission, Agents, is to become radically attuned to the life-giving experience of eating, by one’s self or with others.
Watch this clip of our friends Michael Pollan and Oprah Winfrey explain the premise of our fifth mission!
Eating is a direct, daily reminder and connection to all of the unseen and interrelated forces that we depend upon to live. This is an incredibly profound experience that human beings share universally around the world. Yet, often it is difficult in fast-paced modern societies to slow down enough to be mindful of how meaningful and important of an experience eating actually is!
To counteract this problem, we’ve developed a Compassion Games “Power-Up” to help us more fully connect with our food, one another, and our Mother Earth. This Power-Up is called “Yum the Meal!”
There are only four guiding actions of play… share this experience alone or with friends.
