About The Event
This is an invitation to a Spring equinox celebration with the medicine of Cacao and Free Movement, facilitated by Radha
This event is part of a new sequence of four season gatherings to acknowledge the turn of the year "The Dance of the Seasons - SPRING"
Spring is a time of growth and renewal, dawning a new phase of creation. The earth is awakened from her winter sleep, warming with the ever-increasing light. Seeds of potentiality embraced within her darkness begin germinating and new life emerges all around us.
Join us on a deep explorative journey into the void and bring forth what is ready to be accessed and expressed through you, from you, and as you.
Riding on the waves of music and connection, we will journey to the spaces in-between lovingly guided by the Cacao plant medicine and our body's innate wisdom. The invitation is to explore what is ready to be expressed through you in the freedom of movement.
No experience in dance, movement or yoga required - if you have a body, you can move.

~WHAT IS A CACAO CEREMONY? The tradition of drinking ceremonial cacao originates in the ancient culture of the Mayas in Central America, who called it "ku-ku", "above sacred". It was believed to carry the spirit of Fertility and Abundance. The Goddess of chocolate, Ixcacao, was also known as the "Queen of Love and Pleasure". In a ceremonial circle we will share a cup of bitter delight and allow it to awaken our Heart and soul.
~WHY IS MOVEMENT HEALING? One of the best things one can do for their health and overall wellbeing is to move. To move freely you don't really need to know any special steps or movements, you don't need to follow anyone or to even "have a sense of rhythm". You can flow with an impulse that comes from within and is most natural. You can observe how children form a very early age recognise music and feel the urge to move. Allowing the body to move freely and following its inner voice and needs has many healing benefits, among which: - Giving People the Ability to Express Emotions - Stress Relief - Increased physical and Gross Motor Skills Development - Improved confidence and Self-esteem - Encourages Creativity and Imagination - An increased sense of vitality - An awakening and renewal of one's life energy ... and so much more Join us and explore the freedom to move like nobody's watching - because nobody will be! This will be a supportive environment of zero judgement in which all of You is allowed, in your unique authenticity of expression. Or just relax and let Cacao move through you!
~WHY IS CACAO A MEDICINAL PLANT? Cacao is an aphrodisiac, 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.
~WHAT MORE IS REQUIRED?~ For your comfort during the session, please wear loose and comfortable clothes. Bring a cushion to sit on for the cacao circle. Bring a water bottle. Drink a lot of water before and after ceremony to avoid dehydration and don't eat for 2-3 hours prior to coming.
