Mindful Chocolate Meditation
November 25, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Take some time out to breathe, taste and get body connected during this belly calming session of meditation – and chocolate!
This workshop is a gentle session focussed on soothing your body and calming your system as we approach the busy festive season. It’s so easy to get swept up in the busyness of life; this is a chance to slow down and truly taste.
Chocolate is a beautiful ingredient full of aromas, and tasting it slowly and with awareness is a delicious way to explore mindfulness. As well as delving into the delicious practice of mindful eating with a selection of sustainable single origin chocolate, I’ll sprinkle in some fascinating chocolatey facts along the way.
You’ll receive a special chocolate tasting pack in the post containing a range of vegan-friendly single origin chocolate tasting buttons (plus a Zoom link ahead of the session). It includes 4 different origins of chocolate, a flavoured tasting button and a 2-serve sachet of Calm Cocoa by Meredith Whitely hot chocolate.
This workshop is suitable for new and experienced meditators. You’ll be most comfortable if you wear loose clothing, but wear whatever feels best for you.
What can you expect?
– A gentle introductory meditation to calm your system and get you ready for some delicious tasting
– Slow, guided mindful eating meditation with a selection of single origin dark chocolates to engage ALL your senses (using the beautiful bean-to-bar chocolate I use in my own chocolate making)
– Some self-guided chocolate tasting so you can explore the many flavours of chocolate – and there will be plenty of time to ask any chocolatey questions you might have!
You’ll also receive a special gift pouch of Calm Cocoa hot chocolate to take away and taste (mindfully!) using some of the techniques we’ll explore in the workshop.
None of the chocolate we’ll be tasting has any added dairy, gluten or nuts, but I don’t have a completely allergen free kitchen so get in touch if you have any questions.
Please note if you are suffering from certain diagnosed mental health conditions (including clinical depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) you should always seek support your supporting clinician before taking part in meditation. I’ll provide a form to complete ahead of the workshop to help you identify any information or support you should seek before taking part in the session.
