Life must include dessert. To help set healthy routines around dessert (or any food) bring more intent.

Spend time preparing it as an occasion instead of standing by the freezer with a spoon in the pint of ice cream. Making dessert a ritual instead of a knee-jerk response pulls you into the present moment and allows you to experience dessert with all of your senses.

Bringing Your Intent

  • Prepare the table by clearing the space, lighting a candle light, switched off electronic devices, turn on music.
  • Be hands-on by elevating even simple desserts with aspects of fresh fruit, cleaning of spices and herbs, or serving on a special plate.
  • Welcome your friends/family to sit and have a conversation. Discussion cards are fantastic for this!
