Ashwood Waldorf School's Parent Community Council Presents Author & Educator, Jack Petrash:
Immigrant Kitchens presents the next live cooking class: Friday Oct. 12 North African Chicken Chili with Sourdough Flatbread, Freeport 6-9pm. Of all the foods I've learned, this one is my husband's and my favorite. We adore really spicy food and this is really spicy - the perfect dish for those who put hot sauce on everything! I can't wait to cook it and eat it together with you next Friday night at the Freeport Community Center. Learn about teff flour, spongy sourdough injera, ghee, turmeric and the enchanting berbere spice mixture. This dish comes from Eritrea, a country next to Ethiopia in north eastern Africa. I learned it from Asmeret, the owner of Asmara restaurant in Portland, Maine. The meal is chicken drumsticks cooked in a deep red, spicy sauce that kind of looks like a bowl of chili. If this sounds familiar, I taught this dish last April and am teaching it again because it's so darn good. I can make mild and vegetarian versions as well - just let me know.
What color is your mind? Resolving the nature of Mind as Unborn Awareness through Mindfulness
The truth of the matter is that every time something happens, we become aware of it. Where do you become aware of it? We say, “In our mind,” and that means in space. In other words, space becomes aware of its own movement. This idea, by the way, is basically pointing to ordinary experience by undercutting the quality of experience that is based on ego. Ego is constantly thinking and talking, constantly making up something about what is happening. However, from the point of view of meditation, the only thing that is happening is whatever instantly arises in space, and in that instant, whatever arises has no history. Therefore, it has no memory, and therefore, it has no future. And therefore, even in the present, it has no existence. It is simply pure being, which is like striking a match on a stone – the flame that occurs is the same as what occurs in space when experience arises: Strike! Ssst! Light! Bright! Smell, taste, touch – everything comes out of that. It’s instantaneous and immediate. Osel Tendzin.
