The dim light of the Solstice New Moon is a perfect time to set new intentions. Join us as we come together in the sacred hoop of sisterhood to heal and activate the power of the Divine Feminine through the use of Shamanic rituals and sacred ceremonial Cacao medicine!
This is an opportunity to open ourselves up to these emotional and receptive energies and heal our old patterns, limiting beliefs and ancestral traumas so that we may move into alignment with our Authentic Selves and True Nature as healers and custodians of the Mother Earth!
We hold impeccable sacred healing space for our participants so they may dive as deeply as they need in order to release what comes up.
Before doing our deep healing work, we will experience the powerful healing properties of raw, organic, blessed ceremonial Cacao. Some of the main benefits of Cacao medicine are increasing of euphoric feelings that can overcome stress and anxiety, accompanied by an opening of the heart chakra.
It’s also an extremely beneficial superfood with high levels of antioxidants, Omega 6 fatty acids and the amino acids tryptophan and serotonin. So you know you will leave feeling really delicious!
Once we activate ourselves with this magical heart-opening medicine, we will be led through a powerful ceremony which will include intention setting, breathwork, ritual, meditation, chanting and Shamanic medicine music for a closing sound bath.
• 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.
