Wei of Chocolate makes chocolate that’s good for the body, mind, and spirit. Available in nine delicious flavors, Wei of Chocolate is organic, fair trade, vegan, GMO-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free. Each piece of dark chocolate is intended to bring more peace to your day. This may sound odd to some people, but founder Lisa Reinhardt is looking to help folks enjoy chocolate daily sans guilt and even use it as a path to greater well-being.
Reinhardt had spent more than a decade in the Himalayas, where she studied meditation, lived in monasteries, and even did solitary retreat in a cave. Upon returning to the US, she was eager to share what she had learned about meditation, but most people weren’t interested. Reinhardt realized chocolate was the perfect medium to spread her message, because no one ever says no to chocolate.
Wei of Chocolate products melt in your mouth and do not require chewing, thus allowing you to focus on the layers of flavor and take a short, peaceful break whenever you need it. Reinhardt believes that this little ritual alone can transform your day.
“Pretty much everything we’re looking for – all the joy, love, compassion, insight, and wisdom – is right there, waiting for us in the present moment,” she writes on the Wei of Chocolate website. “Daily chocolate can be a path to health and wellness, as well as a way to bring the benefits of meditation effortlessly into our modern, busy lifestyle.”
Wei of Chocolate is available online and at retail stores, wellness centers, and spas in the US, Canada, and Hong Kong. The company also offers a monthly subscription program for those who would like to make sure they never run out of dark organic chocolate.
Wei of Chocolate has been featured in Epicurious, Spirituality & Health, Well+Good NYC, Organic Spa Magazine, No More Dirty Looks, and American Spa.
