9. Mindful Taste of Chocolate Meditation 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.

I will not recommend any changes in medication or attitudes that could potentially worsen your condition.

16. Slow & Flow - An Afternoon of Yoga and Meditation
Many of us living in busy urban environments can forget the importance of slowing down. Slow & Flow is designed to help you relax and reconnect with an uplifting blend of fast and slow, and sweat and chill, alongside a delicious mindful sipping of hot chocolate. This special session is brought to you by meditation teacher and chocolate crafter, Meredith of Food At Heart, and food-lovingyoga teacher, Svetla aka Ashtangi Who. It is being held in a beautiful light-filled studio in Clerkenwell and is the perfect Saturday afternoon escape. To kick things off, Svetla will lead you through a traditional Ashtanga yoga practice. This ancient method connects movement and breath. It is designed to help you find peace in your mind by flowing through the sequence of demanding postures. But don’t worry about your strength or flexibility; Svetla will be there for you to give you personalised verbal and physical guidance whatever level you are at. She will help you get into challenging postures in a safe way. Warning: people at Svetla’s classes are often surprised at what their body is capable of! The yoga will be followed by a grounding meditation session, again focussed on connecting with your breath and your body. Meredith will guide you through some gentle breathing techniques, then a mindful sipping of calming and uplifting dark chocolate, using her special dairy free Slow Chocolate blend. This meditation will engage all your senses and help you explore the beauty of pausing. There will be a short break between the yoga and meditation, and we will provide herbal teas and fruit to revive and refresh. Everyone attending will receive a special Slow Goodie Bag to take away at the end of the afternoon, so that you can take some of the techniques from the session back out into your everyday life. There are a maximum of 15 spaces available as we want to ensure we can provide you with sufficient individual support. Health Note: Please note that meditation may not be suitable for you if you suffer from certain mental health/health conditions. If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder or a dissociative personality disorder, please ensure you check with your supporting clinical team before taking part in meditation. We will provide a form ahead of the session for you to complete just to make sure we are aware of any personal requirements you have so that we can make the session as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
