About the Event
Join us for a magical evening of Cacao ceremony and Ecstatic dance as we embark on a transformative journey of sounds. Experience the power of music, movement, and the sacred cacao plant to awaken your senses, connect with your inner self, and let your spirit soar.
⭐What is it?
Cacao Ceremony: Immerse yourself in the ancient tradition of Cacao ceremony, where we will honour the spirit of Cacao, known as the "food of the gods." Indulge in a warm cup of ceremonial-grade cacao, carefully prepared to open your heart, enhance your focus, and invite a deep sense of joy and connection.
Sound Journey & Ecstatic Dance: After the Cacao ceremony, surrender to the rhythm of the music as we dive into an ecstatic dance journey. Let the beats guide your body, allowing it to move freely and expressively. Release any inhibitions, connect with your authentic self, and experience the bliss of being fully present in the moment.
⭐What to expect
Starting the evening with an intimate cacao ritual, guided meditation and journaling to connect to the land, and each other and tap into the energy of the space.
🍫You will be drinking a ceremonial grade of high-quality cacao, mood elevation, and a more expanded state of consciousness. This is so yummy!!
Let the cacao spirit guide and heal you...🍫
Using shaking, intuitive movement medicine and wild ecstatic dance we will indulge in around-the-world music curated to lead you into a state of freedom, letting the beat take you on a journey of self-discovery.
We will finish in a guided savasana and a closing circle.
