About The Event
An invitation to drop into the Heart with the medicine of Cacao and your own Voice.
No previous experience necessary, no singing abilities required to experience the profound effects that the practice of sounding can bring such as: - Inner peace - Meditative states of absorption - Happiness and joy, springing from within - Opening of the heart with feelings of love and compassion - Connection with self and the other participants - Healing and harmony
Our voice is a powerful healing tool and we all have this beautiful instrument. Whether you use that actively or not, we are still 'voicing' something in the world with our mere presence. We are all vibrational beings, what vibe are you sending and receiving in your world?
VOCAL TONING Yee Ley will guide the group through simple vocal explorations that will assist with unlocking the healing power of your voice. Together with the support of the Cacao, we can co-create sound-scapes that are required to be voiced in that moment. This taster session opens us up to what wants to emerge through our voice with ease.
SONG CIRCLE Based on ancient chants, medicine songs are simple repetitive tunes that have the ability to quiet the mind and bring us into the Heart, a space of no-thought and beyond reason. You can think of it as a sing-along. A single chant can go on for up to ten minutes. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet. Most of the songs will be in English as well as Sanskrit mantras.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Literally everyone, as the practice of sounding and medicine songs doesn't require a specific belief system or lifestyle, everybody's welcome - any age, culture, gender
WHY CACAO? It is proven that in ceremonial doses, raw high quality ceremonial cacao is a powerful heart opener that paves the way to transformation through self-love. Cacao is a mood enhancer, 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.
