An Invitation from Rev. R. M. Peluso

I would like to invite friends at The Chocolate Life to visit my  Facebook Group: Chocolate Tasting Meditation (CM) tm.

Most memorable chocolate experience:
On going....Amedei Chuo, perhaps...Cru Savage was 'educational"
You will notice that I'm an ordained minister...that's Interfaith or nondemominational. My orientation is spirituality, not religous dogma.
I lead Chocolate Tasting Meditation (tm) based on over thirty years of meditation (diverse types) experience and cultivation of tasting skills.
So my experience of chocolate is about immersing in the the sensual experience in order to transcend it...if one truly tastes, one is in the moment, you see. I'd be happy to talk about this with you sometime or in your forum. You can google me : Rev. R. M. Peluso Chocolate Meditation
and my my website link is:

I do not yet have much of a bio up there on my ministry site...still to come.
Gratitute & blessings,
Rev. RM
My favorite chocolate is:
