Complete Course Title:
Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony with Sound & Movement
Come with an empty stomach, a blanket and something to use as a blindfold (this could even be a tshirt)!
Join us as we commune with the great spirit of the Cacao plant. We’re delighted to share with you the many physical and energetic benefits of this medicine as we pair it with synchronistic practices of diving into the subconscious layers of our Being.
"The Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Chocolate for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. In its purest form (unlike much of the chocolate available in the mainstream), it is a powerful assistant for ‘inner work’, creative guidance and so much more." - Soul Discovery
We open with intention-setting - using Divine language to speak into existence our desired outcomes for the inward journey we embark upon. After drinking the Cacao, we apply our blindfolds and lay down for brief breathwork, followed by a feeling meditation. The remainder of this workshop is accompanied by music.
Through this blindfolded feeling meditation, we limit our senses and awareness to that which is brewing within us. Our bodies are so ready to release what no longer energetically serves us, that with the help of the heart-opening cacao, all we really need to do is lay there as the music guides us in releasing various emotions. No mind yoga needed... just lay there and think, feel or do whatever your body is calling for. For the second half of this workshop we extend our movement into the physical realm via ecstatic dance.
BREATHE & BE BREATHED
Too often we think as though we are taking each breath deliberately, as a declaration of our "personal control" over life. When in reality, breath is the only thing we know of that happens automatically - and also by choice.
We incessantly tell ourselves that we are in control of everything we do and most of what happens to us. And though it might be true to a certain extent, gripping onto this ideology for dear life, becomes a catalyst for disaster. We perpetuate a reality based on a false notion, when we could instead acknowledge that we do orchestrate our own breaths, but we are ALSO simultaneously breathed by the Universe. -A sort of organic, chaotic automation of existence. One could say, that our every breath is really the microcosm of breath by the Universe. And in that sense, we are inhabiting a duality of control and chaos. A perfect balance of transmission and reception.
Consider now the instrument of transmission and reception that is your heart. This heart of yours is a receptor for many things: life force, breath, your emotions and emotions you take on from others. What if we could utilize our heart, as we do our breath? Co creating a reality in which we Consciously AND Unconsciously release emotions, in order to collectively move through that which no longer serves us.
