Raisin Meditation – It’s all out there!

During the first class of the eight week course at St Anne’s, participants were each given two raisins, and spent ten minutes being guided through what was probably the slowest snack that any of us had ever eaten. We paid attention to the raisins’ texture, smell, and impact on the eye, and chewed it gradually, noticing how new flavours were released on each bite. Several participants said they had never enjoyed any snack as much as those raisins.

Wow, this is really cool – I never thought of doing this with food before, I suppose raisins are multifaceted enough to be interesting over a longer period of time. 🙂
