New Year Cacao Ceremony // Relax. Reflect. Play. Connect
A 2-hour experience like no other! Be led out of your head and into your heart, where the magic lies. Start the new year in a meaningful way, setting intention and coming into deeper connection with self and others.
A Cacao Ceremony is a heart opening ceremony. Cacao has a rich history in ancient Mesoamerican civilizations, considered to be sacred it was used in rituals, ceremonies and even as currency. The active ingredients in Cacao helps with relaxing the nervous system and our busy thinking minds.
This two-hour experience is conducted by gong practitioner and certified BodyTalk practitioner Celeste Chong, who learnt to facilitate a Cacao Ceremony from her teacher Joseph White Owl, one of the indigenous peoples of North America. She holds a safe space for all to calm their busy minds and sink into their hearts through sound, movement, connection exercises and a heart awakening guided meditation sound bath.
