Welcome to this online zen eating session. We truly believe that eating mindfully promotes your happiness by resetting your mind to appreciate everything that surrounds you. During this online dining experience, I will take you on a 1-hour journey of eating meditation that will bring you peaceful and joyful energy.
This online zen eating experience is structured in three parts.
First, we will meet online and chat via Zoom. Then, this experience begins with an introduction to the philosophy of zen, including how to eat mindfully. I will guide you to induce relaxation through a simple exercise and breathing techniques.
Next, we start eating in a calm and relaxed state for 20 to 25 minutes. Mindful eating is one of the practices in Buddhism that is easy to implement into your own life. Through this activity, you can get in touch with the essence of Buddhist teachings. You may feel the connection with people, food, and nature. We’ll explore this state of peace while eating, feeling full of joy. Eating together slowly in a calm and relaxed environment will leave you feeling more grounded.
Finally, we take a moment to share what we feel together. Sharing your perspective, thoughts, and feelings is helpful for you to clear your mind, connect with others, and end the experience with a positive feeling.
Please join with your own meal or snacks (anything is fine, though you may feel more comfortable if you bring something nourishing and nutritious). We hope that the Zen Buddhist aspect of Japanese spirituality inspires you to take the practice of mindful eating into your daily life.
