Dia de los Muertos Cacao Ceremony
Nov 3, 2012
5 pm - The Harmony Hut, Tucson, AZ
Space is limited. Please register by Oct 25, 2012 by contacting Darcey, email@example.com
Cacao, in its unrefined state, is a rich source of antioxidants, minerals, and compounds that activate the heart, the blood, the mind, and spirit. The medicine of Cacao is well known in our culture, but has been dulled, refined and watered down. Literally. Come and experience the power of true cacao. There is a reason it has been called ‘Food of the Gods’ and was used regularly by indigenous peoples of the Americas for ceremony.
In this heart opening workshop we will sit in circle to create sacred space for this plant spirit and its work, and share a drink of unrefined cacao with another plant ally for ancestor work- Marigold (Tagetes lemmonii.) The synergy of these two potent plant medicines will help us to connect with the realm of the ancestors and reach back to heal ancestral wounds.
We will use drum, journey, voice and movement to explore the teachings and healing that Cacao has for YOU at this time. Be prepared for heart opening, recovering/uncovering, deep feeling and engaging the physical senses. Your focus, intention and spirit and heart’s desires will be magnified. Use this time to journey into YOUR heart and to your ancestors.
RECOMMENDATIONS: We recommend coming well hydrated and eating a light meal a couple hours before so as not to arrive with a belly full of food or drink. Bring a cushion for sitting in comfort and / or a blanket.
It is helpful if those who have rhythmic instruments- drums, rattles, sticks bring them for the ceremony to help raise the energy.
It is also wise to have a little something to snack on post ceremony to help ground the energy. Bring a small potluck dish/offering to share with others after the ceremony.
