  1. I have a peanut and treenut allergy, does the lunch have anything that can trigger my allergies or can there be an accommodation ?

    • Yes, typically we’ll either have a little allergy sign on the dish or you may ask the cooking team.

  2. Apologies if this question is obvious, but will English translation be available in person for this event? My family and I are looking forward to this wonderful day of mindfulness 🙂 Thanks 😊
