What you'll do

\ Learn to eat to enrich your life & access new ways of eating! /
Are you looking for an activity that helps connect family or slowing down eating?
Holidays are the time, there are a lot of foods.
This is a perfect experience for you to enjoy every bite as you will learn to eat to enrich your life & access new ways of eating!

During this experience,, I will take you on a 1-hour journey of eating meditation that will bring you peaceful and joyful energy.

This experience is structured in three parts.

First, we will meet online 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. 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.

[Great for corporate teams and groups]
Many companies applied this experience for team building and wellness activity. (Top IT Company from Silicon Valley U.S.A/ Consulting/ Venture Capital)
I am accepting groups up to 100! Contact me for more availability and information! I am flexible.
Other things to note
1. Kindly bring your own meal or snack. It is totally fine even if you bring only one bread with you.
2. Download Zoom (www.zoom.us) to your laptop or smartphone.
3. Find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed.
4. Check if you have a stable internet connection.

I have been practicing zen Buddhism for 7 years.
My spiritual journey has been going on from when I studied religion and culture at university.

I would love to share the calm and happy moment by giving you my activity "zen eating".
I integrate zen mentality and philosophy into eating.

I was born in Northern Japan and raised in Tokyo.
I am passionate about knowing Japanese traditional culture as seeking tradition is entertaining for me.
I love sharing wisdom that I learned from traditions with my guests.

I have practiced Indian meditation too while I was living in India for 1.5 years.

As a happy person, I will share the way of eating mindfully to gift yourself joy and calmness in the Japanese way with you.

This was my first online experience, and it was really enlightening. We went through zen eating/meditation and came back to reflect on our experiences. She also gave us personal tips on applying this to everyday life. I didn't know eating could be so relaxing so thank you for showing us the way.

I loved this experience with Momo. I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness for quite sometime now, but I never pay attention to what I eat even though I spend a lot of time cooking - it's often cook and eat quickly to move on to the next task/part of my day. I was able to incorporate my five senses into the experience of eating even though I wasn't sure how that would work. I want to incorporate this mindfulness around eating in my daily life :)

This was such a revolutionary session for me! In the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives now within lockdown, we end up feeling that we rush our meals and don’t take the full level of being content through the food we get. Momo took be through this amazing connection and gratefulness with what makes me whole - the food :) She is so personal, genuine, and extremely knowledgeable - and made our session so tailored. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to anyone that needs to really take a step away from the hustle, and take in the great things in life :) Thank you Momo

Thank you Momo for a wonderful mindful eating experience. Momo was very welcoming and friendly. She brought us into her world with pictures, stories and created an engaging session that encouraged us to use our sense. My fruit tasted so juicy and sweet! Even more satisfying that usual :-)

My 94-year-old mom-in-law selected this experience and it was a lovely way for family flung far and wide to spend an hour together learning about mindful eating. I highly recommend Momo.
