Thousands of years ago, cacao was thought of as one of the best superfoods; the health benefits beings so strong that cacao was considered a ‘food of the gods’ by the Aztecs and Mayans. Cacao acts uniquely and individually on a personal level through feelings, the heart and intuition. It allows those who are willing to deeply access their emotional body or pain body filling it with light and compassion as you connect to your heart. Cacao is a heart centered anchor which means this experience is filled with love. Alternative tea options are available for those not wishing to have cacao.
Music and Sound
Gathering together in community to sing and play music together. Using kirtan, medicine and devotional songs of the heart to open and recentre ourselves back to love. No experience is required and singing and playing instruments are always optional. Please bring musical instruments if you have them to join in.
