Well-Being & Wine

I believe we can have our wine and drink it too.

We can enjoy all the things we love in a way that is mindful so that it is nectar to the body & mind rather than a poison resulting from a desire to numb. 

Ok, maybe you never consciously set out to numb with wine but maybe you have found yourself like I did unconsciously heading to the wine fridge after work on auto-pilot night after night without even realizing it.

Whether it's your comfort food, your favorite cocktail or a glass of vino, the freedom you feel when step out of unconscious habits and into mindful consumption is extremely powerful.  


Want to learn how?  Join me for my upcoming courses, a workshop or find me most Thursdays at beautiful Fäsi Estate Winery for a mindful tasting.

Before class, I thought I was feeling fine-no tension or stress.  However, about 10 minutes in I realized that my shoulders/neck did have some tension and I began to feel those areas relax. After the class I was much more at peace mentally.  Being outdoors and feeling the breeze and hearing the birds made it that much better!  Physically, my shoulders/neck were more relaxed and the wine tasting was enjoyable. It was different from a typical tasting because Maria had us think about the 5 senses while tasting.  I’m happy we did the tasting outside because I enjoyed the nature sounds/setting.  Not feeling rushed was nice-I felt like I could really focus on the wine. I would definitely recommend it to friends, it would be a fun way to help them reset physically and mentally.  I kept thinking how fun this would be with a group of girlfriends!
