Our Mission

Awakening joy in every moment by being present with good food.

Meet the Founder & Chief Mindful Baker

Hello pastry fans! I’m Sarah Nelson, founder of Sabbatical Vibrations. I have been on a journey of personal growth, mindfulness, and pastry LOVE. I’m so excited you are here with me.

I believe the joy of baking is in my DNA. I am just one in a long line of bakers. In my adult years, I find myself getting an obsession with a certain type of baked good, and then spending a year or two working on technique and testing recipes. Recipes come alive in my imagination and I read cookbooks like people read novels.

Although I have been baking for almost 30 years, it hasn’t been until the last few years that I have connected the powerfulness of mindfulness with baking. Being present with the recipe, using my senses to experience each ingredient, finding joy in mindful eating… these are all elements of mindful baking.

Well, you are here! And I’m guessing you love pastries. Or maybe you are curious what mindfulness has to do with a bakery. Whatever reason brought you here, I hope you’ll join the Sabbatical Vibrations journey and awake joy in YOUR moments by being present with good food.
