Mindful eating is a Buddhism practice, consisting of meditating on your food and paying close attention to the sensation and purpose of each morsel. Each year, I will host a Mindful Eating Dinner so we can experience this concept together.
This food is a gift of the whole universe, the earth, the sky, and much hard work.
May we eat in mindfulness so as to be worthy to receive it.
May we transform our unskillful states of mind and learn to eat in moderation.
May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.
May we accept this food to realize the path of understanding and love.
