This workshop is a gentle session focussed on soothing your body and helping you feel connected with your senses. It’s very easy to get swept up in the busyness of life so this is an opportunity to slow down. Chocolate is a beautiful ingredient full of aromas and warming it up into a magical concoction is a tasty way to experience the soothing benefits of meditation and mindful awareness.
During this workshop I’ll share ways that you can extend some of the breathing and mindfulness techniques we’ll practice into everyday living.
Not sure if this session is for you?
This meditation workshop is suitable for new and experienced meditators. Meditation is a very personal experience and there’s no right or wrong way to feel about it! We won’t be aiming to transcend to any higher planes or tap into different states of consciousness; this workshop is about grounding, connecting and calming.
What can you expect?
– A gentle introductory meditation to help you feel grounded and calm, and to set the tone for the rest of the session
– Guided mindful hot chocolate meditation engaging all your senses; we’ll slowly sip and savour some delicious dairy-free hot chocolate using my own special recipe with beautiful single origin dark chocolate
– A short closing meditation to help you leave the workshop feeling calm and soothed (I will vary this from month to month, to cover different types of meditation such as a body scan, loving kindness or guided visualisation)
There will be time for discussion and questions if there’s anything you’d like to know more about.
You’ll also receive a special taster chocolate bar to take away and taste (mindfully!) using some of the techniques we’ll explore in the workshop.
