Chocolate Meditation: craving, FREE (Sept. 7)

Ananda M. (Dharma Meditation Initiative), Dhr. Seven, Jen B., Eliza Darcey, Wisdom Quarterly

Our meditation instructor is a great vegan chef and chocolatier, so we've asked him to bring in FREE SAMPLES as we talk about meditation and "craving," the alleged number one cause of suffering.

They say death is terrible EXCEPT for the fully enlightened (who do not die but gain liberation from the hamster Wheel of Life and Death) and anyone who dies salivating because of Death by Chocolate.

Chocolate (Aztec and Mayan chocolatl) is bad, no? In fact, it is the "food of the gods" (Theobroma cacao of the devas) with anandamides ("bliss molecules"), euphoric compounds that elevate mood and provide raw antioxidants.

Carob is great but lacks the high added-sugar and bitter roasted-coffee edge that makes cocoa so famous. RSVP FREE
This is what "chocolate" really looks like -- the seed of a Mexican fruit: Theobroma cacao
