This week we have a very short, yet powerful meditation that is very easy to do. This is a Chocolate Meditation that focuses on all the senses and mindful eating.
Many traditions use nuts or fruit as the focus for a meditation on the senses of taste, smell and touch. But you can use any food at all so why not meditation based on chocolate?
Chocolate has the added incentive of indulgence to encourage people to do this quick mediation and chocolate has its own powerful values that contribute to the mind and body. It’s full of antioxidants and the right kind of chocolate can do more benefit than harm.
To prepare for this meditation. Choose chocolate that you have never tried before or one that you have not eaten recently. Preferably find wrapped or packaged chocolate to enhance the meditation.
