Cacao has been used as a sacred medicine for thousands of years. Known as the food of the gods, it provides a heart opening experience that will get you deeply in touch with your body and enliven your senses. We will drink a very special cacao sourced locally in Bali and mixed mindfully with a witchy blend of herbs and spices. The chocolate drink will be divine nectar for you to savor and enjoy. With the ceremonial space invoked and the cacao spirit with us: We dance!
Levi will guide you in an ecstatic dance journey through the 5 elements. You will shape-shift your body, moving in new ways, seeing new parts of yourself and remembering forgotten parts. During the dance there will only be body language and no spoken words - only the guidance of the facilitator and your free form movements and primal expression. You will go deep into the dance and lose the distractions of your mind, playfully releasing any stuck energy and embracing your natural essence. We are made of the elements so through the dance we embody the elements!
Once we have moved through the entire journey, we will come back together in circle to close the ceremonial container. We will share in community and togetherness, leaving you with a sense of beauty and fulfillment in your heart.
Though cacao is not an aggressive plant medicine and our blend is quite delicious, it is still not required for you to drink the chocolate at all. You can come just to dance and experience the ceremony!
Please come with an open mind and prepare to open your heart!
