Join us for a sonic journey to the heart center. The heart chakra or

chakras. It is often where we find our center, a place we can trust..but

often, we stray away and lose trust in ourselves, our truth..our true


In Sanskrit, Anahata is said to mean unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten

Join us on a sonic journey back to the heart center as Tom from

Anahata Sound Therapy weaves delicate patterns of sound and

frequency designed to bring you back to that place in the center..where

On this evening, we’ll also experience the heart-opening powers of

Cacao with a very special Cacao ceremony offered by Christina Hladnik, Cacao Ceremonialist. 

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. 

You do not have to consume Cacao to enjoy the experience or benefits of this Ceremony.

Please note the following tips for a more comfortable experience:

*Please bring a yoga mat, pillow, and/or blanket if you wish to lay down during the Sound Healing portion of this event

*Please make sure you bring water for yourself to consume throughout the evening.

*Please dress comfortably; we suggest layers that can easily be removed or added.

*We suggest eating a light meal a few hours before the event and not coming in with a full tummy.

*After consuming cacao, we suggest grounding foods, such as rice, beans, meats, cheeses,  or potatoes, when you get home.

DISCLAIMER :  MAOI based anti-depressants and SSRI's are contraindicated with the  tyramine in chocolate, so a larger dose of cacao is not recommended.  Anyone on MAOI's or SSRI's, we highly suggest consulting with your doctor and/or pharmacist regarding higher doses of cacao. For anyone with a  serious heart condition, it is not recommended you take larger doses of ceremonial cacao without first consulting with your doctor.
