Women's cacao ceremony on CREATIVITY
Time & Location
About the Event
Aligning with the huge astrological and energetic shifts occurring on the 12th of January, this ceremony will be a safe space for women to come together and tune into our creative powers, get clear on our intentions for what we will co-create in the next decade, and leave feeling juicy, empowered and heart centred.
Although it may feel intense, this time is a powerful opportunity to transform ourselves, our lives and our mindsets.
I invite you to join me in this sacred cacao ceremony. We will be working with delicious Peruvian ceremonial grade cacao and a specially designed energetic potion from a master healer. Using natures medicines to release the unhelpful negative chatter and find our clarity; co-creating the lives we want.
“Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

WHAT CACAO IS:Cacao has been used as a food and ceremonial aid for millennia. It's earliest recordings are 2000BC around the Gulf of Mexico. Working with 100% ceremonial grade Cacao, which is imported from an ethically and environmentally sourced organic cooperative farm in Peru, has the potential for profound healing and inner work to take place.
Cacao is vegan, gluten and sugar free and contains a world of wonderful goodness: anandamide (the ‘bliss’ chemical), serotonin, dopamine, histamine, arginine (natural aphrodisiac), phenylethylamine (PEA – the ‘love’ chemical), theobromine, magnesium and antioxidants (15 times more than blueberries). It is perfectly safe to have Cacao whilst pregnant or breast feeding. However, please let me know in advance if you are on antidepressants, strong medication including herbal or Chinese tonics. Or if you have any dietary allergies
HOW TO PREPARE:Please arrive with an empty stomach - no food for 3-4 hours prior to event. A light breakfast of fruit, toast, porridge, green juices, etc, is recommended. Please avoid caffeine and dairy cow products on the day - they do not mix well with Cacao. Keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It is highly recommended to avoid alcohol the day before, a few days if possible. I have also found that the cleaner your diet is for a few days prior to the ceremony the more you are able to take from the experience, as your physical and energetic body is less cluttered. By a clean diet I mean whole foods, ideally vegan, and cooked without deep frying or using large quantities of salt or sugar. In the evening after the ceremony which shall close at 4.15pm, please avoid planning anything too stimulating. The medicine will still be in your system and the best way to maximize the effect is by nurturing yourself (see the aftercare section below), and have a nutritious, healthy and filling meal. I recommend keeping a dream journal for the next few evenings as the plant can carry on working with your subconscious via your dream state.
WHAT TO BRING:*1-2 litres of filtered water (ideally not a single use plastic bottle)*Wear comfy clothes (think yoga with layers)*A journal and pen*Your favourite cup/mug to drink your Cacao and a teaspoon.*Blankets, pillows, meditation cushions if you wish (there will be some available but the more you have the more you can nest). *Some fruit to share to break our fast together (ideally organic)
OPTIONAL:*Items to place on the Altar: a photo of, or the name written down of someone who you want to send some love/healing to, and/or any crystals or special objects you would like to charge up. Please remember to take them home.
*Money if you would like to buy some ceremonial cacao to take home with you to deepen your self practice. Or my special blend of healing herbs for yoni steaming. Message me if you would like more details.

WHO I AM:
I spent most of my life being secretly desperately unhappy, and I ran away from that void by never stopping; whether it was creating more projects to throw myself into, over exercising or partying too hard. The unconscious fear of stopping was overwhelming, because who would I be if I wasn't doing something? I was fuelled by anger at the perceived injustices in the world, both personal and global, and was wearing my self physically, mentally and (a word not in my vocab at the time) spiritually into the ground. Then Glastonbury happened. I discovered plant medicines and Nichiren Buddhism in the same summer and my path did a 180. Now it didn't happen over night (some bits did), but very rapidly I felt significant changes in the way I saw the world and consequently, how I responded to it. My thoughts shifted and with them, my actions.
I have spent the last 6 years making self healing my full time priority. This journey has covered many miles around the globe and even more around the cosmos. I have had to confront a lot of painful realities and learn to trust on a whole new level, as well as discover boundaries! The benefits have been exponential, not only for myself, but my family, friends and many many others I have met along the way. My life has a new, more expansive purpose and I hold ceremonial space with cacao as a way to allow others to connect to their deepest knowing and the mystic magic of the universe. I hope you can join me.
