Summer Solstice Cacao Ceremony





WELCOME We come together to celebrate the Summer Solstice, the threshold where you begin to activate your heart's passions, your inner flame, or vibration; your fullest potential. Summer is the season of sound and expression. It's when all of Nature awakens, blossoms, and elevates the vibration on Earth. Summer is the season of exuberance; and uniquely, there is a central core to Summer that is about REST. The thick heat of Summer requires you to slow down and siesta so you can drink in the deliciousness of bloom and growth. Because you have an impeccable amount of sunlight during Summer, you have plenty of time for action. In order to initiate authentic action, you must align your subtle energies, or chakras, with your physical body, and the flow of life. In other words, what is alive in your inner energy world is reflected in your outer material world. As with an instrument, you must "tune" your vessel to optimize your experience and channel your power.





CHAKRAS Literally speaking, the word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” and references a spiritual energy center within the human body, of which there are seven along the spine, and through the neck and the crown of your head. They each correspond to specific organs, as well as physical, emotional, psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being, and influence all areas of your life. Within these chakras is ‘prana,’ or the ultimate pure healing energy, that’s all around you and within you, to keep you healthy, happy and vibrant. When the chakras are open and aligned, your energy is constantly free-flowing, allowing prana to flow through them. You are more able to speak your truth, love authentically, and consciously match your actions to your intentions.





WHAT TO EXPECT We begin our sacred journey by drinking a cup of ceremonial cacao together to expand our Heart Chakra (45 min). Next, you will be guided through a gentle yoga flow with sacred sounds to integrate the cacao medicine into your body (30 min). You will then use vocal sound vibration and intentional touch to assist you in shifting frequencies and cultivating harmony in your cells, and your life (45 min). You will leave the practice feeling open, expansive, and spiritually cleansed.





WHY CACAO? Cacao literally translates as the ‘Elixir of the Gods’ from the South American Ancestors. It is a powerful medical plant for expanding consciousness without the hallucinogenic properties of other powerful plant medicines form the jungle.





Cacao in its raw and natural state contains over 300 compounds and the bliss chemicals anandamide and phenylethylamine and theobromine. These chemicals are naturally released when we fall in love which is why we still give chocolate to loved ones on special occasion – although 90% of processed chocolate is full of sugar and contains little or none of the health properties found in raw cacao. The cacao we will use in this ceremony is pure, ceremonial grade cacao from Guatemala. The ceremony is an experience in multi-dimensional group energy where cacao is ritualistically sipped alongside the heart expanding practices of sound, movement, companionship, meditation, and more.





Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your Heart Chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to use the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.
