Wouldn’t You Eat Chocolate Blessed by this Man?
Intentional Chocolate™ infused with Good Intentions by Monks
A recent scientific study published in the peer reviewed Journal, Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing in October of 2007, states that Intentional Chocolate “increases people’s well-being, vigor and energy by an average of 67% and in some cases 1,000%.”
There is no gimmick. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that intention invokes measurable power and energy that can manifest across space and time.
We have known for years that our thoughts affect our body (mind-matter) in various ways. Now science with new experiments and better measurement devices is able to show that the people who practice intention setting over a longer period of time, like long-term meditators, can have a real impact on matter outside of the body.
Intentional Chocolate™ is using intention to help shift the way humans relate to food by delivering sustenance that nourishes both body and spirit.

The Power of Intention
Positive intention is a focused thought, prayer, or a blessing. It is an offering to the world or a friend in need and can come from a pure desire to help another. The blessing of food with an intention has long been practiced within spiritual traditions and sacred ceremonies. These practices place certain energy into the food that is then offered back to benefit individuals or the community.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that intention invokes measurable power and energy that can manifest across space and time. Researchers all around the world, such as those at Princeton, Harvard, and the Max Planck Institute are studying the power of intention.
How does the intention get into the Chocolate?
Experienced meditators at the Deer Park Buddhist Monastery in Madison, Wisconsin project positive intention into a device developed by the HESA Institute that is designed to capture, hold, and then transfer intention into food.
About the Company
Intentional Chocolate™ originates from a tradition of exemplary chocolate which includes Hawaiian Vintage Chocolate (
) and a network of other fine independent chocolate growers from around the world. Hailed by The New York Times as “the best chocolate in the world”, Hawaiian Vintage Chocolate, founded by CEO Jim Walsh in 1992, was the first and only grower of cacao in the United States at the time of its inception. Walsh is credited with bringing the concept of varietal farming to chocolate, an idea he patterned after California’s wine industry.
HVC is used regularly by high-profile chefs like Emeril Lagasse and Alain Ducasse, was served at Bill Gates’ wedding, and was the first chocolate the Dalai Lama ever tasted; “He said, ‘I think this chocolate will bring great happiness to mankind,’ ” recalls Walsh. Intentional Chocolate™ is a conscious for-profit company founded in 2007 and based in Los Angeles, CA.
