About the event
Let us turn towards the eternal fire of unconditional love and release fear based emotions and open our hearts wide to experience the sweet nectar of LOVE.
Our facilitator will begin with the invitation to join in a purification ritual of drinking sage tea from her garden whilst smudging with herbs and offering thanks to our sacred fire. As we sit and settle in around the fire Willow will bring our our brewed cacao elixir, the hearts nectar. As she further froths and mixes our spiced medicinal chocolate she will share some stories and the magic of this gentle plant teacher and healer. We will individually and collectively offer the earth and fire a sip of our chocolate whilst opening our whole being to her guidance and activation. As we drink each sip we will be guided to access into each major energy center of our body from our root to our crown. As the cacao oxygenates our blood and awakens our senses and awareness we will begin our journey. Willow will be holding safe space, a container for us all to express ourselves and heal, while intuitively reading the energy of the group and guiding us in the highest way. You will experience a moving meditation and shamanic sound journey through the drum, crystal bowls, rattle, chimes, and mystical vocals-mantras-storytelling... We close in a sacred circle sharing gratitude and each participant is welcomed to share a feeling, song, poem, or any treasure found during this journey into the heart.
Opening our hearts is the most important thing we can do as human beings in service to ourselves and others. It allows us to open wide to our voice, our vulnerability, our authenticity, our stories withheld and deep well or wisdom within.

Cacao is the most naked raw form of what we know as chocolate. This sacred bean has been used for 3000 years for spiritual, ceremonial, and medicinal purposes. The benefits are profound: she helps to awaken the five senses, open the gates of the heart, activate the spiritual eye, ignite the fire of love, inspire feelings to rise and release, reveal soul secrets, open honest communication with self and others, as well as nourish the body with abundance of vitamins/minerals/antioxidants.
limited to 21 participants.
All our welcome.
Note to all participants: ~ Please arrive 10 minutes early to settle in ~ Bring your journal and pen ~ Dress comfortable in light clothing. bring a folding chair, shawl and or blanket to sit around the fire. ~ Bring a water bottle and come hydrated ~ Please fast 2-3 hours prior to ceremony. It is best to break the fast post ceremony for grounding and nourishment ~ limit your coffee and substance intake as it will alter the pure effects of Cacao ~ Bring an Open Heart and Open Mind ~The MAOI's (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) in cacao interact poorly with anti-depressants. If you are on an anti-depressant please notify me beforehand so I can simply prepare you an appropriate (smaller) amount of cacao.
The Peace Place is a beautiful and enchanting land, we will have time after ceremony to walk the labrynth and explore the grove of trees if we feel called.
