About This Session:

Naomi & Justine invite you to join us for a night of connection and unraveling through breath, ceremonial cacao and circle. Breathwork can help release stuck emotions that we may not even know we're holding on to. It can create space and make us feel lighter, as well as bring on feelings of joy and bliss. Whether you're feeling overwhelmed or bursting with love, this session will have something for everyone.

Transformational breathwork is a gently guided, yet powerful yin style of breathwork where we breathe in a continuous cycle without resting. This style of breathwork puts us in a trance-like altered state of consciousness allowing us to release deep energy carried in our cells, experience visions, connect with our guides and restore our life force energy.

The space we create is sacred and rooted in elements of Shamanism, Animism and connecting with the earth and it's guides. It is important to us to create a safe and held container for you. We call in our altar, guides, nature and selves into the space to allow you permission to express whatever arises. 

We work with the medicine of Cacao to connect with the heart and to assist us into grounding into the space and opening the channels for deep healing. This experience will only be as deep and transformational as is where you are at on your journey and your willingness to drop in. So we encourage you to come and be openminded to the experience and to trust the process.

This is a mixed gender event, everyone is welcome! If you have any questions or hesitations or wish to find out more, please contact us to have a chat. 

Date & Time:

Saturday 2nd Mar, 7-9.30pm. Doors open at 6.45pm.
Please note that we will be starting at 7pm sharp and any late comers will not be admitted (doors will be locked) as it is imperative that we create a secure container for our ceremony for the benefit of your experience.

Location:

Union Street Yoga Studio, Newtown

Capacity:

Numbers are limited. We will be holding a small circle of approx. 12 people.

Why Cacao?

It has become more recognised than ever that nature holds the answers to many medicinal secrets and one such plant medicine that is often overlooked or not so talked about is cacao, the heart-opening food of the gods. Originating from the Amazon Basin region, it has been used for thousands of years by the Olmecs, Mayans and Aztecs.

When you drink ceremonial grade cacao and prepare it with intention, it is a purely magical experience that makes you feel grounded, softer and more creative. Some even feel a drunken state of being that intensifies any practice that follows.

Ceremonial grade Cacao contains 90% more nutrients than any store bought cacao powders. It is high in magnesium, iron, antioxidants and has five psychoactive chemicals (Note: It is not hallucinogenic) in it making you feel happy, in love and full of bliss. 

We can't wait to share this medicine with you all as we invoke the Goddess of Cacao to open our hearts and minds to the healing energies that Cacao has to offer.

Disclaimer:

It should be noted that as Cacao is a stimulant, there are contraindications to be aware of. Please consult with your doctor before attending if you are concerned about any of the following;

  • Some people can be sensitive to Cacao and if too much is consumed you can experience head aches, nausea or an elevated heart rate.
  • Cacao is is a vasodilator, and lowers blood pressure. If you have low blood pressure, serious heart conditions or epilepsy you should consult your doctor before consuming.
  • Certain anti-depressants are worth extra consideration. MAOI based antidepressants are contraindicated with the tyramine in chocolate, so a larger dose of cacao is not recommended. However, side effects could include more serious headache and nausea, so make sure to check medications first.
  • Additionally, there has been some concern with larger doses of cacao and SSRI type anti-depressants. Specifically, the tryptophan, a type of MAOI which is a precursor to serotonin has been cited by some as a possible contraindication.

 

By purchasing a ticket to this event, you agree that you have read all of the contraindications and consulted your doctor about any serious concerns you may have. You understand that we take no responsibility for any effects that may arise from the consumption of Cacao and that you are in control of how much you decide to consume, although we will ensure that each person is not given more than the maximum recommended ceremonial dose.

You also understand that we will be starting at 7pm and your ticket is non-refundable once purchased even if you cannot arrive on time and are not admitted entry.

For any extreme circumstances where you are unable to attend, we are able to transfer your ticket to a future event, so please reach out to us if you need to discuss this option.
