An hour long meditation and mezcal tasting class taught in a beautiful setting by our maestro mezcalier and a fantastic mindfulness teacher!
For centuries, mezcal has been drunk in ceremonies and social activities: in baptisms, weddings and funerals; to bless the cornfield both during planting and harvest; when falling in love or falling out of love. Mezcal is drunk in sorrow and in joy, in poverty and in wealth, in heaven or when in “hell”.
By now, we all know the benefits of meditation. The vast majority of our thoughts take us into the future or the past. Consequently, this is where we spend most of our lives. In essence, we miss the present moment entirely.Our mezcal meditation ceremonies are organoleptic experiences that use our sense of taste, smell, touch and sight to immediately bring us into the present moment. This full-sensory experience will be hosted at Tahona, the newest mezcal bar & tasting room in Old town, San Diego, located right next to the Campo Santo cemetery.
This hour long ceremony will be led by our meditation teacher and Mezcal sommelier who will be serving intentionally curated artisanal mezcals. Throughout the experience we will practice gratitude by thinking of everything that went into bringing that spirit to us—the rain and sun that helped the agave plant grow, the jimador who had to find the plants in the wild and harvest them under the pressing sun, the love and care that went into the whole artisanal production process, and the traditions that were passed on from generation to generation.
We will close with a contemplation meditation that is meant to give us the time and space to think and ponder about all the aspects of this experience, and how it relates to the rest of your life.
