Welcome to BMK

The kitchen is more than just a place to cook...

The kitchen is the heart of the home,  represents a place to gather, share stories, create memories, and learn lessons that go far beyond cooking.  

About Becky's Mindful Kitchen

Becky Schmooke (pronounced “Smoke”) is a Mindful Leadership Consultant and Speaker, focused on providing action based mindfulness and leadership training to organizations and businesses who are ready to do things differently.

By blending ancient Stoic wisdom with modern science, she teaches how to turn obstacles into opportunities and mindfulness into action.

Becky’s Mindful Kitchen, is located outside of Iowa City, and provides truly unique team building and leadership retreats,  strategic planning workshops, private parties and classes and weekly summer camps for kids. The commercial teaching kitchen, treehouse, archery range, bush craft skills, first aid training, wood fired pizza oven, chickens, baby goats and timber adventure playground provides endless opportunities for hands on activities.

As a mom to three girls, 60 chickens, 4 goats, 2 dogs and a fire fighter’s wife- life is never boring and provides Becky with endless stories which she uses to illustrate her approach to mindfulness in daily posts on social media.  

In all that she does, Becky has one goal, to build confidence in others to take action to live their best life, not just pass time.  

Do you know the way to BMK? 

You will turn left at the big red barn and go down the drive to the white house. The house at the top of the hill is our awesome neighbor and I ask that you do not block their driveway or park in the apron. The play structure is also on their property and is off limits.

Zero parking allowed on the street.

Drive down and circle around and park facing up the driveway starting at the “Park Here” sign. 

There is room for two cars to pass each other on the driveway, so please don’t park on the grass.

Dropping off for camp or parties? There is a “Drop off Here” sign at the bottom of the drive. 

The entrance to BMK is in the back of the home.

Head under the big sign and follow the path past the goat cottage to the back deck. 

BMK is between Solon, North Liberty, and Iowa City – just 25 minutes from Cedar Rapids.
