Journey of the Heart Cacao Circle

cacao circle sanni.jpg

Pristine wintertime is calling us to gather into circle and open the hearts to be seen in our essential authenticity. This cacao facilitated circle is guiding us to dance on the edge of creation and deep-dive with the subtle equilibrium of inner masculine and feminine, light and dark, sound and silence, movement and stillness... See what you find in the center.

This cacao, known also as pure chocolate, comes directly from Guatemala, magical lake Atitlán, that is considered as one of the most powerful energetic acupuncture points of the Earth. By joining the circle, you help local farmers and cacao community in Guatemala to receive back and thrive!

A warm drink of 100% cacao facilitates a heart opening experience releasing natural endorphins and neurotransmitters responsible for the sensation of love in body. This heart opening elixir helps one to tune into the true essence of Oneself and bring focus into what needs healing and care the most at the time. This circle will create a container for enhanced creativity, movement, breathwork, sound exploration and journeying, energetic activation, pair and group connection, togetherness and sharing. By gathering together we can cultivate more energy to allow our hearts to expand, to be seen in our authenticity, stand tall in our center and uplift the world around us.
