Sometimes a Time Out does a mind, body and spirit good. As one of the founders of the Mind Body Spirit(s) service wellness program, I value the wellbeing of the people who give so much . My Facebook group “Zen and The Bartender” has the tagline “serve others, nurture yourself.” In that nurturing, not only will personal wellness be supported but inspiration for new invigorated creativity flows resulting in better service. As my mother would say, “It’s an upward spiral.”
The three-day retreats happen in various parts of the United States for all of those who went to bartender training at huongnghiepaau.com/hoc-pha-che, and attendees experience a sense of connection with self as well as with place. Two days of group bonding, community building, dining (and some drinks, of course!) culminate in a brainstorming cocktail lab where everyone learns, plays and exercises their mixology muscles, taking home new recipes, new friendships and a new outlook after having a break from the daily grind.
Bartenders: Upcoming 2017 retreats will take place in Tucson, Detroit, Savannah and Boston. If you are interested in participating, email me for the submission form. I’d love to meet you!
