She opens up through the energy of the moon. She feels more emotional and receptive and ready after releasing and shedding.
She’s letting go so she can heal old patterns and limiting beliefs that hold her back. She wants to align with her power.
She creates rituals to connect with other goddess to share, to laugh, to cry and be seen. She drinks the powerful Cacao medicine and feels the euphoric feelings that dissolve her stress and anxiety in an instant. Her heart feels radiant and open. She feels empowered and ready for action!
On Sunday, December 17th, under the new moon, we will experience the powerful healing properties of raw, organic, blessed ceremonial Cacao.
Once we activate ourselves with this magical heart-opening medicine, we will be led through a powerful ceremony which will include tantric connection practices, intention setting, Shamanic breathwork, ritual, meditation, chanting and Shamanic medicine music for a closing sound bath.
You will leave feeling:
• a deep connection to yourself and your intentions
• purified, nurtured, and open in your heart chakra
• the healing power of sitting with your sacred sisters
• empowered, seen and loved
• Please wear clothing that embodies your inner goddess
• It would be beneficial to bring a journal/pen to record any revelations that arise
• There may be time for each of us to share a song/poem if we would like
Contraindications: Be aware that raw cacao acts as a stimulant, which at the least can negatively affect sleep and at worst may agitate kidneys for those with any conditions of these nature. If you are pregnant or nursing, please check with your physician first.
