Meditation and Chocolate January 29, 2012

And hey, they also have a Mental Health week in May, and there’s an international Mental Health day in October, so I guess this is worth sharing pretty much any time.

Particularly interesting about the video was the use of chocolate in meditation. That’s brilliant. I still remember the ‘raisin’ meditation fellow students and I did with Bodhipaksa in the basement of the business building back at UM (over 10 years ago… sheesh). The Buddha kept going on about the breath: pretty boring. Chocolate (and raisins): awesome.

And besides that, it works.
