Sacred Cacao is about reviving the ancient use of cocoa as a ceremonial plant medicine used to facilitate heart opening & connection, but without leaving you with a hangover! Ceremony is a time to step outside of the busyness of life and connect with your inner self, it is wonderful way to experience the magical & spiritually rich culture of our beautiful mountain town! In this workshop we will sit together for 2 hours drinking a chocolate brew made from ceremonial grade Guatemalan cacao mixed with traditional herbs & spices. There will be invocations for opening sacred space as well as music-mantra, devotional chanting & sound healing with bowls, bells & a harmonium. You will be given the chance to share any area of your life where you are seeking healing & a greater sense of wholeness. You will then be able to relax & journey with the cacao & music into a space of healing. Participants will learn about cacao & the benefits of ceremony, as well as experience the unique healing portal that is Asheville! Includes live music, guided meditation & heart sharing.

We will hold this ceremony in my beautiful healing temple space located in a historic building on the cutest street in downtown Asheville! The studio is tucked away but in a convenient location overlooking Wall Street and the Flat Iron building. After the ceremony participants can easily browse the Asheville downtown scene & check out other local businesses on the same street such as Violet Owl Wellness & Trade & Lore Cafe.
