3 ways to turn cooking into meditation
Cooking (like any other activity) can be a way of practicing mindfulness. If you’re already a domestic goddess in the kitchen, take a moment now to reflect on what made you fall in love the first time.
Staying connected throughout the cooking process by being aware and mindful of every action we take in preparing our meal can offer a lot more than just a tasty meal at the end of it.
“A recipe is like a prayer; depending on the state of your awareness and connection in that moment, it can take you to the very dwelling place of the divine” – Stephen Galpin, The Ayurvedic Kitchen
As we allow ourselves to be present and in the moment, the therapeutic qualities of cooking (or any other activity we love) can start to come to surface. It is in this space that we can open up to deeply connect with passion, intimacy and focus.
