Fermentation is a chemical transformation that happens when compounds are broken down or metabolized. Fermentation is a process of “becoming.” It happens thanks to the life process of tiny beings—friendly microbes such as yeast and bacteria whose own life cycles and metabolisms help us humans stay healthy and fed. Milk meets a simple life form and becomes easily digestible yogurt. Cabbage can become kimchi, grapes become wine, and flour becomes bread.
For many of us, mental, physical, and even emotional health choices are held together by our spiritual self-care. We recognize that our responses to the ever-changing, ever-challenging world depends on connecting regularly to what matters.
