Would you like to bring more vitality into your life? Would you like to cut through the mind chatter and become more connected to your body and spirit? Let's take some time out in sacred ceremony to ground, reconnect and revitalise.

In the Celtic Calendar we are approaching Beltane, the Fire Festival and the union of the God and Goddess is celebrated representing the beginning of summer as the Earth and Sun dance together. We will work with this theme to connect the light of your WHOLE being. Body, and spirit connected together working with sound, breath and movement to bring more life into our bodies. Building the sacred fire in our hearts and activating our higher frequencies into our cells and DNA.

Ix Cacao is known as the «food of the gods» and has been used by Mayan, Aztec and Inca tribes for thousands of years for ceremonial purposes. As a potent healer, this medicine helps us to open our hearts, connect with our inner wisdom and creativity so that we can dissolve our blockages and create new pathways into being. Ix Cacao brings us grounding into our bodies and can help us open up to feeling and sensing more deeply.

Friday 20th April, 7-10 pm (please arrive 6.45 to get settled)

About Cacao Medicine
Cacao is likely to make you feel more alive from the inside in a gentle, loving way. This is due to the effects of the many stimulating, warming and feel good natural chemicals it contains. Please be aware that this may keep you awake for a few hours after the ceremony, however most people find they want to rest very shortly afterwards as it takes them quietly within.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is very healthy and a potent time for you and your baby, a smaller dose is recommended. Your baby will tell you :-).

Contraindications: This medicine does not mix well with anti-depressants or anti-pyschotics. Please talk to us if you have any doubts such as heart or blood pressure.

Preparation

To prepare the physical body some preparation and cleansing is recommended and full details will be sent in advance. This will mostly involve refraining from dairy, alcohol and caffeine for 3 days, most importantly for 24hours before and after the ceremony.

It is also advised if you can plan for a restful evening and day after the ceremony, although it won't affect your daily activities, there is still some processing happening at a physical and emotional level for a few days.

Also consider your intention for this ceremony, what do you wish to invite in, let go of or ask help with? Intentions are very useful tools for communicating with plant medicine and creating an anchor for us to focus throughout the ceremony. It can be precise or unpolished, just give it some thought and if it comes in the moment, that is fine too.
