FASoS Mindful Lunch, on 12 June

The Green Impact team would like to invite you to the first FASoS mindful lunch. The mindful lunch will take place from 12.00 till 13.00 on Wednesday 12 June, in the garden behind GG90-92.

Mindful eating entails looking deeply into our act of taking nutrition into our bodies: on the one hand we appreciate the contribution of farmers, food processors, distributors who bring the food to us, as well as the sun and the rain in helping it to grow; on the other we reflect on the impact our consumption has on the world, that it should not involve the use of harmful chemicals, the unnecessary use of energy or water leading to shortages for others, the inappropriate exploitation of labour, or the killing or exploitation of creatures we share the planet with.

Please bring:

  • A dish of vegan, ideally organic, food that you can share with others, in a reusable container, and a serving spoon. Please do not bring too much food, to minimize waste.
  • A reusable bowl and spoon/fork for yourself. We will try to provide facilities where you can wash up mindfully.
  • Something like a cushion or rug to sit on if you do not like to sit on the grass.


  • We will gather at around 12.00, sit down and help ourselves to food.
  • There will be a brief invocation on mindful eating.
  • We will invite the bell and eat mindfully in silence for about 20 minutes.
  • After the bell is invited again we will be able to talk together.
  • If possible, bowls of washing up water will be available so we can wash our bowls and cutlery.

If you have questions, please contact John Harbord (jr.harbord@maastrichtuniversity.nl).

We look forward to sharing lunch together.
