What you will do
1.5 hour workshop
Take some time out to breathe, taste and get body connected during this belly calming session of meditation – and dark 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 tasting it slowly and with awareness is a delicious way to explore mindfulness.
During this workshop Meredith will share ways 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 calm your system and help get you body-connected (as with the final meditation, this will vary from month to month)
Guided mindful eating meditation with a selection of single origin dark chocolates that engages all your senses (using the chocolate Meredith uses in her own chocolate making from beautiful bean-to-bar brand, Pump St Chocolate)
A short closing 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 chocolatey treat 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.
Please note if you are suffering from certain diagnosed mental health conditions it’s not recommended that you take part in meditation without sign off from your supporting clinician. You'll receive a form ahead of the session to fill out so that Meredith can make the workshop as comfortable for you as possible.
