WELCOME We come together to celebrate the new moon - a phase of Emergence. A time to start again. We identify the parts of ourselves we no longer need, and we put energy toward who we're becoming. Using our senses, we enter this sacred portal so that we can connect to divine intelligence in an intimate way - through the wisdom of our bodies. We call upon the four directions of the Andean Medicine Wheel from the Q'ero wisdom keepers of Peru, where each direction is associated with a spirit animal that represents a part of the healing and manifestation process. The infusion of plant medicine, embodied movement, and sound healing will help us activate empowerment themes and tools into our cells, and receive light-filled messages to help us awaken to our potential.

WHAT TO EXPECT We begin the class with a cacao ceremony. A ceremonial dose of cacao is served in the form of a warm drink - to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra. Sacred Cacao will carry us through the new moon with sound healing, meditation, drumming, song, and yoga. This heart opening elixir can facilitate a pleasant - perhaps blissful - state, where you can journey deeper into personal and collective healing. The ancient medicine of cacao helps connect you with your inner guide - and it may increase clarity, focus, creativity and an overall sense of well being.

After our cacao ceremony, we will move into a heart-harmonizing vinyasa flow yoga session with high vibes stereo grooves. You'll channel your bliss and embody your intentions, riding the waves of our sweet heart ally, cacao.

WHY CACAO? Cacao literally translates as the ‘Elixir of the Gods’ from the South American Ancestors. It is a powerful medical plant for expanding consciousness without the hallucinogenic properties of other powerful plant medicines form the jungle. Cacao in its raw and natural state contains over 300 compounds and the bliss chemicals anandamide and phenylethylamine and theobromine. These chemicals are naturally released when we fall in love which is why we still give chocolate to loved ones on special occasion – although 90% of processed chocolate is full of sugar and contains little or none of the health properties found in raw cacao.

The cacao we will use in this ceremony is pure, ceremonial grade cacao from Guatemala. The ceremony is an experience in multi-dimensional group energy where cacao is ritualistically sipped alongside the heart expanding practices of sound, movement, companionship, meditation, and more.

Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your Heart Chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to use the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.

*** No experience needed - just an open mind, and open heart.***
