~ CACAO ~
Ceremonial Cacao can fuel any endevour, including one's artistic expression and spiritual practice.
Cacao is a powerful yet gentle plant medicine, mood enhancer, and antioxidant that protects the heart and is densely packed with nutrients - proven to be the most pharmacologically complex food in nature! It can improve your memory, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and create loads of energy. Cacao contains the neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of wellbeing, as well as anandamide, known as the bliss molecule that leaves us feeling blissful and euphoric, moderating pain perception, as well as assisting in regulating appetite and mood. When high quality beans are prepared for ceremony, all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao become particularly active. It increases blood flow and nutrition to the brain, heart and skin, and the whole body is nourished.
Sacred Cacao ceremony participants report heightened awareness, focus and intensified sensations.
Cacao healing for the body, but also for the soul and spirit as it is heart opening and an amazing meditation aid.
~ DRUMMING CIRCLE ~
Every human's heart beats like a drum. The heart beat is the pulse of life. We all have rhythm in us and this rhythm loves to express.
A drum circle is an informal group of people who gather together to make music with percussion instruments. It's free-form, without a firm beginning or end to the music. Players in drum circles are all equal, and there are no wrong notes. They listen to what others are playing and join in. It's not about perfection but rather participation. It encourages the articipants to feel part of something bigger and empowered to express themselves – tapping in to their own rhythm and tuning in to the harmony of the group.
When our rhythms are given expression, our creativity awakens.
~ WHAT TO BRING? ~
Your drum or two, a shaker or any other percussion instrument you may fancy. All is welcome.
