Center the mind and savor positive experiences with this simple practice. Pausing with your coffee is a great way to start your day or to create a mindful break at work.  Photo by Ioana Motoc from Pexels

Coffee Meditation
Bringing mindfulness into an everyday activity worked really well. Coffee was an excellent choice, as the aroma and overall experience of drinking it is such a sensual activity. Really good meditation.

"When the student is ready..."
"A teacher appears", they say... I got a little of that this just now. I finally got that "experiencing" the moment of even just taking a sip of coffee was something I should try to be present for... My life, like many, is none stop, I barrel through life, not experience it... Many of the "good" moments, hours and days come to me while I live with a sense of entitlement about them which leads to me to just run right through my life without gratitude or appreciation... Maybe I'll have a few moments I'll be aware of today.

A cup of ohm
I loved this meditation, it was exactly what I needed before starting my busy work day. I know I'll feel great the rest of the day.

I don't drink coffee...
but was able to transfer this experience to my morning grapefruit drink. I learned to experience gratitude for the people and processes that went into bringing this drink to me.

It’s a beautiful morning...
What a great meditation to stumble upon this morning. A calm moment to be present, mindful and appreciative as I energize with that first cup o’joe. Now it’s time to pour another cup, grab the oils, paintbrush and get to work! Have a great day, folks!

Practical mindfulness
Meditation isn't just about sitting in silence on the cushion. Meditating on everyday moments allows you to practice mindfulness all day.

A warm cup of coffee
Perfect meditation to start the day. A little bit of heaven. Delicious coffee,a warm cup, a soothing voice, and a gentle reminder to appreciate the simple things in life. What more does one need to start off a perfect day?

Hey, I learned something this morning
I didn’t have hot coffee; I just made my water cold and added some coffee crystals to it (it is hot outside). I learned that I don’t even need hot coffee to enjoy this!

I just did this while we waited for a friend of mine, searching for a paper that she can use...
...in a nursing job. But we (my roommate/potential caregiver to another of my roommates and I, that is) just did this, while drinking old coffee. He seemed to appreciate it. Come and be done, Tara!

Full experience
I loved this so much. Too often in my life I am distracted, multitasking, not really noticing the small joys that come my way constantly. A good cup of coffee is one of those small joys. By starting my day with really experiencing my coffee, I had time to enjoy my own company, enjoy life a little bit before the day gets busy and distracting.

Perfect for a coffee addict!!
A coffee meditation?!! Awesome! Am I allowed to admit my addictions here? I do live in the coffee capital of the U.S.! I really did enjoy this. We rarely slow down to savor coffee here. It’s just a given that we can go to one reserve or another and try something new. I did this one with a store brand coffee. I wish I had done it with one of the coffees from my health company because I know they are ethically harvested and I know where each type comes from and where they are packaged and shipped from. Would have made the end easier.

Coffee ☕️ Meditation
After several days of being unable to focus during meditation because my mind is racing in a zillion different directions, this worked!!!! I was able to focus!!!!!! Even though I didn’t have a cup of coffee, the visualization did the trick! It feels wonderful to be able to focus again! Part of me is wondering if holding something treasured in my hand as an Aura friend recommended, was the jump-starter. I think I may do this again tomorrow, just to make certain that I am back in track! Thank you, Aura! 😍🙌🏻😍

I have done this for over a year
& the Coffee Meditation is so good! I haven’t really done mediation throughout my life, but this is SO Groovy! Come, my friends, & meditate!

Awareness
I am usually in a rush in the mornings to drink my coffee and head out the door. Sitting and actually taking in the aroma and taste is so calming and relaxing. A completely different experience.

Coffee ☕️ Meditation
Ingenious!!! This is the Perfect morning meditation. It can warm your hands, encourage some pleasant deep breathing, helps you focus on the Now Awareness... AND you get to drink you coffee, enjoy the aroma, and wake up a little. Finding this one today, made my morning. This may be my new morning favorite!!! Yeah!

7-Minute Coffee Today...
I enjoyed my 3-minute Coffee Meditation so much yesterday, I did the 7-minute Coffee Meditation today. I like them both. New favorites. What a fabulous way to greet the day. And... I get to drink it, rather than my coffee ☕️ sitting by and getting cold! Bonus!

Savor the Experience
This meditation is a great one to listen to in the morning or as a break sometime during your day. You are invited to hold a cup of coffee in your hands and then taking a few small sips. You notice the sensations of the coffee in your mouth as you soak in the aroma underneath your nose. You begin to really savor the experience of simply taking a sip of coffee. Enjoy a cup of coffee! ☕️

Oh! This is so great
This morning, I couldn’t have anything to drink & so did another meditation, but I just shared this with our “She Shed“ at the Kremples Center, & it was just Groovy!

Savoring
I start my day with a cup of coffee, diffusing an essential oil...today it is a refresh blend, and listen to something on Aura to wake me up. I enjoyed taking a moment to smell and take small sips of my coffee to savor. If your not a coffee drinker I think you could practice this with any drink.

I am getting better in being present in the moment and experiencing it. I am getting better at calm and thought through reactions. 😌

This is SO nice
I learned that since I began this meditation, over a year ago, my World is just Groovy! Will you try it too? Thanks

Coffee Meditation
It is amazing how beautiful something so ordinary and every day become a when you focus on it. I am going to take this with me and try to remember to focus and see the beauty in every thing.

Appreciation
I love how this meditation made me appreciate the simple action of sipping a cup of warm coffee.

Oh! This is so nice
Man, I meditate on the coffee meditation so much(like every day); but when I meditated this morning, I just noticed ANOTHER thing to be happy about. Will you please meditate to this? Thanks!

Imagining...
I tried this one without a physical cup of joe and it was still very enjoyable. I sat in the early morning sun on my imaginary balcony over looking the beach, mentally experiencing the whole thing. I could feel the warm smoothness of the mug & smell the delightful mixture of the fresh Ground beans & salty sea air. I could even taste/feel the deliciousness of the hot liquid rolling down my throat... mmmm!! I am getting ready for a week at Myrtle Beach at Christmas so it was easy to visualize this one. Thanks B3 for suggesting this track! ❤️☕️🍀

Mindful sipping
It’s great to pause and really experience all the little moments in life. Also, fyi I got to aura today still on my phone but via an email link rather than a phone notification and response time was great- hopefully that continues! Namaste

Hey there , but I...
...have come in realize that this is MY Meditation! I’m just so happy that this is here; & I wanted to share this with you. I’m just staying here, with my roommates, Dave & Paul (Dave is a fellow TBI client, and Paul gets paid to watch over Dave), and Paul and I walk around our neighborhood. My 47th birthday was on March 28th. All in all, I’m just happy to be alive! Thanks, and you may go back to your regularly scheduled life. I just want to wish you all a Groovy day! Thanks, BumbleBrie B ☕️☮️🐝☯️☕️

Peaceful coffee
I have been stressed and not feeling well. No energy at all this week. This mediation was perfect while enjoying my coffee. I feel so much more energized and grateful.

I will notice the small things and engage my senses with the coffee. The sight smell and taste going forward and gratitude of all the people who participated in the creation of this cup of coffee. Thank you

Savoring ☕️
If you are not a coffee drinker, I feel this meditation would still work with a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate. Holding my coffee cup that says “Enjoy the Chaos” on it, with my eyes closed feeling the warmth of the cup anticipating that first sip. As I bring it to my nose deeply inhaling the aroma of the dark roast I am drinking, I feel my senses start to wake up. I love the smell of coffee especially when it is brewing. The anticipation of taking that first sip is building. Slowly taking a sip, it feels like pure liquid silk. As I continue to savor this cup of liquid goodness, I feel my body starting to wake up with positive energy running through it to take on another day. I give thanks to all the people who made this cup of coffee possible.

I did get
200 this morning, & it was to the meditation of Coffee. Can you please try to meditate to this too? Life is just so awesome sometimes! Have a Groovy day! Hugs, BumbleBrie ☕️🐝🙏🏼🐝☕️

Very helpful
I noticed while doing this I’m always in a rush to drink coffee I’ve lacked taking time to appreciate everything about the coffee drinking experience and taking time to just have time to relax before I begin my tasks for each day

Taking the Time to Stop and Pause
I personally don’t drink coffee but this meditation practice is very useful for coffee drinkers and non coffee drinkers. One thing we all have in common is not having or taking the time to stop and pause for a moment. We often don’t stop what we doing and take look at the things around us we are all guilty of this and need to learn to slow down once in awhile

Day 7
I did not like this meditation as much. I did not have a cup of coffee and didn’t connect with it as much.
T
Tina
I really enjoyed this and have found a similar experience with drinking more small batch coffee
I like the small batch roasts because I have to pay attention to pick up all the notes. I didn’t close my eyes because I was enjoying the coffee with a chocolate wafer but could see that being a nice addition

Stop and appreciate
Never thought of taking the time to appreciate people who take the time to make these things for us like coffee. Very awesome.

Coffee Meditation
I did this mediation as a visualization. I realized that it is important to bring a sense of meditation to every thing that we do by being right there and involved instead of being distracted.

It was so wonderful to sit with something I do daily and truly appreciate every aspect of it while being fully present. So much more at peace and way more satisfying.

Really looking forward to each cup!
I love my morning coffee and making time to savour it, but this helped put me in such a better state of mind - even though I was at work! Great way to reset and go ahead with the rest of the day.

Mmm, coffee
Great way to incorporate two ways of self-care. I enjoyed my coffee even more :)
