We will cultivate the Full Moon energy to reflect and bring light into our hearts and wombs. Gathering as women at this potent time will bring healing, inspiration and connection, a safe and gentle way to explore our own presence. This Ceremony falls perfectly on the Libra Full Moon, a time we can utilise to come back into balance and alignment. We will honour our connection with our bodies and Mother Earth, the feminine aspect as well as our spirit, Father Sky, the masculine aspect. There will also be an opportunity to cleanse and purify our bodies and minds, opening up more clearly into the heart space.

Earlybird: £35 per person (if booked by 12th April)

Mama Cacao will assist us by helping us to soften into the areas that need our love and attention, bringing her medicine of heart opening, clarity and grounding into the body. We will also be working with Blue Lotus, a sacred flower that has been used in ritual and ceremony over the ages in Egyptian and Mayan Cultures. This plant is associated with the energy of the Sun, and therefore connection to source, allowing us to open up to our deeper intelligence and connect with higher frequencies or levels of consciousness. It is also believed that the flower is connected with sacred sexuality, helping us to transmute patterns of abuse or misuse of our sexuality.
We will explore practices that involve meditation, breath, sound and movement that will free our minds and bodies, allowing us to connect and move from our authentic space. There will also be a time for some radical self-care with a "Savasana" style letting go for integration.
About Cacao Medicine
Ix Cacao is known as the "food of the gods" and has been used by Mayan, Aztec and Inca tribes for thousands of years for ceremonial purposes. As a potent healer, this medicine helps us to open our hearts, connect with our inner wisdom and creativity so that we can dissolve our blockages and create new pathways into being. Ix Cacao brings us grounding into our bodies and can help us open up to feeling and sensing more deeply. Mama Cacao is a very feminine and creative medicine so she will help us to explore in a soft yet powerful way.
Cacao is likely to make you feel more alive from the inside in a gentle, loving way. This is due to the effects of the many stimulating, warming and feel good natural chemicals it contains. Please be aware that this may keep you awake for a few hours after the ceremony, however most people find they want to rest very shortly afterwards as it takes them quietly within.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is very healthy and a potent time for you and your baby, a smaller dose is recommended. Your baby will tell you :-). Please let us know so we can ensure that we create the right mix for you.
Contraindications: This medicine does not mix well with anti-depressants or anti-pyschotics. Please talk to us if you have any doubts such as heart or blood pressure.
To prepare the physical body some preparation and cleansing is recommended and full details will be sent in advance. This will mostly involve refraining from dairy, alcohol and caffeine for 3 days, most importantly for 24hours before and after the ceremony.
It is also advised if you can plan for a restful evening and day after the ceremony, although it won't affect your daily activities, there is still some processing happening at a physical and emotional level for a few days.
Also consider your intention for this ceremony, what do you wish to invite in, let go of or ask help with? Intentions are very useful tools for communicating with plant medicine and creating an anchor for us to focus throughout the ceremony. It can be precise or unpolished, just give it some thought and if it comes in the moment, that is fine too.
