Samhain Cacao Ceremony & Women Circle
Time & Location
About The Event
An invitation to all WOMEN of Hawkes Bay! Let's celebrate the fruits of Harvest together at this auspicious time!
~ Samhain ~ Known as "the witches' new year", this day marked the beginning of winter. The last of the harvest had been collected and stored away. Samhain was/is considered a fire festival drawing you to take account, reflect upon the deeds and ways of the past, and prepare for the newness coming to you. “It was believed that on this day that was not a day, and at this time that was not a time, the Otherworld and its inhabitants could be easily accessed.” Rites and ceremonies were performed that contacted the dead and retold stories of the Gods, Goddesses, and the Great Heroes/Heroines.
As women and keepers of the Womb wisdom, we will gather to honour the Ancestors and offer Gratitude, forgiveness and take account of the old in order to prepare for a rebirth.
~ Cacao ~ Ceremonial Cacao is a powerful plant medicine with highly feminine nature. In ancient times, it was related to a deity, the goddess of fertility, pleasure, sweetness, abundance and joy. Cacao is packed with nutrients supporting women's health such as Iron, Magnesium, antioxidants, protein, flavonoids, essential fatty acids, fibres and more. In brief, Cacao facilitates connection to and healing of the two most powerful centres or wisdom and wellbeing - the HEART and the WOMB.
~ Ayurveda and Tantra ~ Interwoven in ritual, play and sharing, Radha will also introduce ideas and practices from the ancient wisdom of Yoga, Ayurveda and Tantra related to feminine energy, expression, renewal/ healing and female sexuality.
See you in circle!
