“Food and the 5 Senses” – Liminal Weekend Experience
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 breakthrough insights.
Liminal Sessions offers you a unique pathway to disconnect and access the liminal space with the immersive, sensory, storytold “Food and the Five Senses” event which leads into a Liminal Weekend experience in Mafra with it’s luscious green surroundings nestled between forest preserve and the Atlantic ocean.
Join us & invite your senses to float in the Liminal Space.
“Food and the Five Senses” experience is a food, sensory, and storytelling journey unlike any other.
In this intimate, curated 4-hour experience, you will plunge into five tastings of local, organic, plant-based food designed by world-class chefs each paired around the senses.
This is no ordinary fine dining. Using the senses as a guide, you will have the chance to feel how selected ingredients and preparations extract elements of sensation to re-experience the senses!
Each sensory moment is matched with a specific taste designed to stimulate perception, flavor and memory to awaken your senses and ease you into the liminal space.
This enveloping experience will be complemented by storytelling around a main key ingredient featured in all five moments. The chefs will reveal parts of their creative process, adding a dimension of awe and flow to the experience.
To enrich your experience, our package includes all meals, drinks and accommodation at Quinta de Sant’Ana do Gradil located 30 minutes drive from Lisbon. Stay in exquisite private suites with living room, kitchen, terrace, and pool.
Following “Food & the Five Senses”, a live music evening session draws you into an interactive and soulful kirtan musical adventure led by Persian Sound Artist set around intimate communal fireplace.
The next morning, join a sensory yoga / meditation session followed by a farm-fresh, organic breakfast. Finish with an organic wine tasting with regional appetizers.
