About the event
🌕 Join us for the first full moon of 2023! Come and enjoy a Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony & Five Element Ecstatic Dance to embrace the full moon in Cancer and to start 2023 with a transformative, fun, deep and invigorating ceremony.
🌕 This full moon is about feeling of lightness, a sweet exhale after a long period of heaviness. If you’ve felt stuck or heavy for a long time, this full moon can feel like a breath of fresh air, and a welcomed change of pace.
🌕 We are also asked in this full moon to connect to our inner mother archetype, to find space to nurture, love and respect ourselves fully. To holding ourselves in high regards, to being our own safe space and only allowing in what is good, healthy and supportive for our well-being and lives.
🍫 What is a Cacao Ceremony? 🍵
Cacao Ceremonies are practiced to open your heart. Traditionally Cacao Ceremonies have been practiced by ancient cultures like the Maya and Aztec civilization, where ancient shamans were leading the ceremonies.
For a Cacao Ceremony you receive a ceremonial prepared cacao, which is a high quality raw cacao bar melted in purified water or a plant based liquid.
Additionally in the process of slowly heating up the cacao, you connect with the spirit of Cacao
It is believed that the spirit of cacao has the power to reveal and unlock the secrets of the soul, bringing forth our ultimate truth in a loving way that is immediate and lasting.
What is the Five Elements Dance?
As the cacao medicine opens your heart, you will be guided through an ecstatic dance journey through the five elements, Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether.
As we move through each element, we’ll find ways to express our deep feelings and inner wisdom through movements, dance and connection.
