Curating immersive experiences that engage the senses and please the palette.

Not only will you become educated from food and wine experts, you will also learn breath and body awareness techniques that increase joy and vitality  beyond the table.


Awaken your senses and live fully in every moment.

Have you ever wondered why right now is called the present? It's because it is the greatest gift you will ever receive. The Mindful Vine awakens your senses and gives you the tools to live fully in every moment.

I believe that through our senses we are able to connect to the pleasure in every experience that is our lives. I believe feeling ALIVE is possible by cultivating practices for mind, body and spirit that immerse us into presence.
