Once in a Blue Moon - Join us for a Cacao Ceremony led by Christina Hladnik, followed by a spirited Drum Circle led by Chris Moses
The Teaching Essence of the plant medicine of Cacao allows us to create an opportunity to move into our heart space and experience a deeper connection with self and the world around us. For centuries, Indigenous people have used Cacao, the teaching plant, to open their heart chakra and connect more deeply and fully to the earth, their community, and their inner child.
What to Expect from this experience?
- Cacao Ceremony led by Christina Haldnik, Certified Cacao Ceremonialist
- Drum Circle, led by Chris Moses, Shamanic Practioner & Ceremonialist
- Opportunity to center, connect, and express
As our heart space opens with the assistance of the Cacao plant medicine, we find great pleasure in creatively expressing ourselves through drumming and ecstatic dance. The drumming will include planting seeds of intention during this POWERFUL supermoon.
