1.5 hour workshop
Take some time out to breathe, taste and get body connected during this belly calming session of meditation – and hot chocolate!
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 Meredith 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? – An introduction to help you get comfy and give you an overview of what’s happening during the workshop
– A gentle breathing 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 some delicious dairy free hot chocolate using Meredith's special recipe containing beautiful bean-to-bar brand, Pump St Chocolate
– A short body scan meditation to help you leave the workshop feeling calm and soothed
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 slow tasting chocolate bar to take away and taste (mindfully!) using some of the techniques we’ll explore in the workshop.
You’ll be most comfortable if you wear loose clothing, but do wear whatever feels best for you.

Food At Heart workshops involve all the senses and explore how you can use this sensory understanding in tasting and living. The sessions bring together a healthy mixture of fun and focus.
