The Reflection Institute has partnered with Ann Arbor’s famous Zingerman’s Cornman farms to host the PAUSE. ON. PURPOSE. (P.O.P.) inaugural retreat, centered around the concept of foodfillment. 

This one-day retreat on Saturday, April 4, 2020, will provide fellow foodie-focused folks (say that five times fast!) with an opportunity to PAUSE. ON. PURPOSE.

One of their favorite mantras is: “It becomes bigger than you by focusing on you!” Come to the retreat to learn how your relationship with food serves a bigger purpose — one centered around you, your family, your broader community, and the world. 

Just some of the items included with your ticket:

  • Meals – breakfast at the Graduate Hotel, a delicious 3-course lunch at the Cornman Farm, afternoon gourmet snacks, and an evening cocktail toast back at the hotel at the end of the day.
  • Cooking class with world-class British chef, Kieron Hales.
  • Access to our inspirational panel of guest speakers who are using food as a vehicle to change the world. Panelists include: Amy Emberling, Zingerman’s Bakehouse; David Klingenberger, The Brinery; and Rachel Liu Martindale, Milk + Honey.

  • Farm Tour – learn more about the day-to-day operations of Cornman Farms and how they use their own produce to make unique food-filled memories every day.
  • A gourmet goodie bag, filled with tasty treats and much more.
  • Two complementary raffle tickets.
