Autumn Cacao Dance
UPDATE: NOW ONLINE
As autumn leaves fall and we continue to move through these transformational times, join us for a nourishing evening of journeying deep into dance.
The body remembers, the heart knows: this moment, this life, all this love. For, in every moment, life is celebrating, dancing its dance, no matter the outward form. Leaves fall. Seasons change. And we dance, onwards.
Our evening will begin with a body-centred meditation and the invitation to share in circle what is present for you; your words and presence a gift to all. We will then drink ceremonial grade, heart-opening cacao, opening to expression and our intuition as the music guides us and life dances through us.
All welcome. Advance booking essential due to limited group size.
Date & Time: Saturday 7th November, 7.00 PM – 9.15/30 PM

Cacao is a sacred non-psychoactive plant medicine. It is rich in antioxidants and minerals and can evoke the bliss chemicals in the body, enabling a gentle journey of deep discovery and a receiving of inner guidance from the wisdom of the heart.
For the ceremonial grade cacao to work its heart-opening magic, please avoid caffeine and dairy on the day of the ceremony. Please fast for 3 hrs before the start of the ceremony. If you experience low blood sugar or need to eat, a light snack is fine.
If you are taking anti-depressants, please consult your doctor before drinking cacao. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consider the theobromine in cacao is a stimulant, so a lower dose is recommended. If you have a heart condition please consult your doctor before drinking ceremonial grade cacao as it significantly increases the heart rate and is a vasodilator, opening blood vessels, increasing blood flow and reducing blood pressure if it is high.
