SOFTSIDE OF WILD™: CACAO CEREMONY
September 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Open your heart with one of nature’s sacred plant medicines: CACAO
Join Ayurvedic Practitioner and All That Matters’ yoga teacher Sohini LiveWell to celebrate the vernal equinox through a ritual of togetherness and euphoric unity – waking up the heart with live music, meditation, and euphoric dance!
Performed for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes, cacao ceremonies have been around for thousands of years, originating back to the Mayan and Aztec traditions. Working with this sacred plant medicine is powerful yet safe, and it becomes a door-opener for inner exploration of Love, Compassion, Song, Intention, Creativity, Curiosity, Inspiration, Expression, and Connection.
In this sacred ceremony:
– Drink ceremonial grade cacao
– Sit in intentional guided meditation
– Explore and share our relationship to heart wisdom
– Invitation to play, feel and express using song and dance
Like all plant medicine, Cacao works with us and what we need to feel, see and understand through the discernment of the mind, the somatic sensation of body rhythm, and the wisdom of spirit and soul. Pure Cacao has an affinity to the channels of the heart. We know in Ayurveda, the oldest medical health care system, that when we work on the heart we also work on the mind. The mind is seated in the heart and it is the bridge between the earth world and our connection to the realms of spirit and source.
Contraindications: The ceremonial Cacao dose is not recommended for those taking any heart medication or anti-depressants, or pregnant mothers – Please inform us to adjust your serving size.
– Ceremonial Cacao is most powerful when taken at least 2 hours after meal
– Wear loose comfortable clothing
– Bring a water bottle and come hydrated
– Any sacred items for the altar are always welcome
This program includes live music!
