About the event
Dress code: GLAM VAMP CHIC
The Autumn Equinox is a powerful time of turning inward and beginning to attune to the darkness and shaddows that begin to fall. The world is changing, leaves are falling and there is colour all around us... but what is bubbling beneath the surface?
This is an opportunity like no other to come together in celebration of ourselves and our beautiful world, releasing anything that no longer serves our highest purpose and stepping into our full abundant selves.
Sacred cacao has been used for millennia by indigeonous peoples to open the heart and awaken the soul.
A gentle and expansive plant medicine, Cacao allows us to step outside of the mind and enter the heart, clearing a pathway for our greatest wants and needs to unravel without resistance. When drunk in ceremony, Cacao can be a transformational and loving medicine.
During this session we will welcome in the Cacao spirit with love as she guides our intentions into a new era of blossoming beauty.
Come bearing an open heart and a big smile for an evening of love and community.
Surrender with us as we dance through an evening of sacred cacao, ecstatic dance, breathwork, and radiant sound bath facilitated by Molly Chinner, Sean Delahay, Carlo Volpi + David Tran. You'll be treated to an ambient soundscape of digital MIDI drones, gongs, crystal bowls, chimes, himalayan bowls and mantra.

CAN I DRINK CEREMONIAL CACAO IF (...)?
Ceremonial Cacao is a potent and magickal plant medicine. I use the highest grade Cacao organically and ethically sourced from the Tsatayaku association in Ecuador. A ceremonial dose of Cacao is between 40-50g and can have some purgative/stimulating effects due to the Theobromine and Caffeine content. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking SSRI's or have any serious conditions please let me know beforehand so I can prepare a lower/no dose for you.
DO I NEED TO HAVE EXPERIENCED SOUND BATHING BEFORE?
All are very welcome - no sound bathing experience is necessary. Please let us know in advance if you suffer with serious heart conditions, have a pacemaker, tinitus, epilepsy or any other condition that might be effected by the vibration of sounds.
WHAT TYPE OF MOVEMENT IS INCLUDED?
There will be an extended ecstatic embodiment/dance flow. Ecstatic dance is fun and expansive and totally self-lead. I will be guiding some prompts and exercises to break the ice, otherwise it's up to you to feel the music and move in a way that feels good for you.
ARE ALL ASPECTS COMPULSORY?
We'd like to create cohesion and connection amongst the group so encourage full participation. However it’s your body and your time, so if you feel called to skip an experience, it’s up to you. Please note that doing so will not affect the price in any way as all pricing is fully inclusive.
WHAT’S THE BOOKING POLICY?
If I have to cancel for any reason your payments are refundable in full up until March 5th. Refunds are available for customer cancellations up to and including 5th after which no refunds can be given.
