“Food and the 5 Senses” – Liminal Weekend Experience
Liminal Space: Open Up to the New
Situated at a sensory threshold that is barely perceptible, the liminal space is a transient space between the familiar and the unknown. A space void of mental chatter and habitual thought patterns that otherwise veil us from our potential.
Ancient cultures around the world developed rituals and rites to enter the liminal space. From meditation and chants to sacred dances and rhythmic beats; designed to raise and attune sensory awareness, intuition, and discover breakthrough insights.
Liminal Sessions offers a unique pathway to disconnect and access the liminal space with an immersive, sensory, storytold “Food and the Five Senses” event curated around a Liminal Weekend experience in Sintra with luscious green surroundings nestled between Sintra Natural Park and the Atlantic ocean. Invite your senses to float in the ethereal Liminal Space.
