Take some time out to breathe, taste and get body connected during this belly calming session of meditation – and hot chocolate!
Meredith Whitely is a mindful eating guide and meditation teacher with a passion for all things cacao. She will guide you through this gentle session with a focus on soothing your body and helping you feel connected with your senses.
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.
What can you expect?
– Gentle opening meditation to calm your system and help get you body-connected
– Guided mindful hot chocolate meditation engaging all your senses; we’ll slowly sip and savour a shot of delicious dairy free hot chocolate using Meredith's special Slow Chocolate recipe
– Short closing meditation to help you leave the workshop feeling calm and soothed (this varies from month to month to cover different types of meditation, such as a body scan, loving kindness or guided visualisation)
You’ll receive a special chocolatey treat to take away and taste (mindfully!) using some of the techniques we’ll explore in the workshop.
Meredith will also share ways you can extend breathing and mindfulness techniques into everyday living. There will be plenty of time to ask questions as you explore the different techniques.
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! However, 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.
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. Meredith will send 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.
