Gratitude for Food
Meet Kim Fleisher, a wonderful friend, practitioner and mentee.
Kim is an educator in Philadelphia.
She wrote a song for the Five Contemplations called Gratitude for Food.
It is 27 seconds of happiness.
About The Song:
Some teachers asked me if there was a simple, direct song explaining the Buddha's Five Contemplations Before Eating that was easy to learn and remember. I couldn’t find one, so I made it!
I just returned to the east coast from 2 yrs in spacious Taos, NM. Now I live in West Philadelphia, in community with those who value the intersection of spiritual practice, art/music, wellness, play, education, and social justice/activism. Visit us at
I've been meditating for 20+ years, practicing in the Thich Nhat Hanh tradtition since 2007, and am currently an Order of Interbeing aspirant. I think play is a key to happiness and sacred does not have to always mean serious. Oh, and music moves the soul and wakes it up! I also love practicing Reiki, and working with children (they teach us a lot).
