On Campus Program

Around the Fire Foraging, Outdoor Cooking, and the Power of Connection


Join director of Kripalu School of Mindful Outdoor Leadership and author of Rewilding, Micah Mortali, and Kripalu chef, Jeremy Rock Smith, for an unforgettable outdoor culinary adventure that brings together the elements of fire, the practice of connection through mindful foraging and seasonal eating, and the nourishment that comes from gathering around a fire in community and celebrating the gift of life. 

Be inspired to connect more deeply with the land you live on as you:

  • Learn about wild foods and foraging.
  • Enjoy a woodland feast with foods you cook under Jeremy and Micah's expert guidance.
  • Experience the magic of food cooked over an open fire.
  • Embrace the joy of gathering around the fire in community. 

Return home understanding how the practice of nature connection and cooking can help us know and care for the living earth.

This program—developed and led by our own faculty with the Kripalu methodology in mind—is offered exclusively at Kripalu.
