Sunflowers and Buddha Babies

‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Buddha Babies’

The Ancient Greek Eleusian Mysteries involved enacting the myth of the Goddess Demeter and her daughter Kore.  The ritual gave its participants ‘joy in life and hope in death.’  Following the loss of her mother, Gresham Knight goes in search of the sometimes bawdy, mind-blowing path of the initiate.

The result is a recipe: ‘Buddha Babies’ the unconventional cookery show.

To achieve Tantric re-birth, take 1lb of unconventional birth stories from anywhere (China, India, Greece – whatever is fresh and available); Marinate with sprinklings of Taoist, Confusionist, Shamanic, Platonic and Vedic philosophy; pinch of salt, zest.
