A sweet and soulful dance night
Frost-covered earth and ice-fresh air. Winter embraces us fully with its wild ways and the invitation to allow ourselves to change with the seasons. Life moves through us as it does and, all the while, the inner song of silence anchors us in the ground of our being: spacious freedom, wholesome, all-inclusive love. This is the simple, unconditional joy of being.
More than ever, we are being asked to embrace reality as it is. In the challenges that naturally arise with this process, our whole systems are being called into even deeper resiliency, our hearts into greater expansion. With each inhalation and exhalation, we receive and we release.
Join us for a sweet and soulful dance night. Our evening will begin with a body-centred meditation and optional sharing – space to simply be heard. 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.
A note for those who are new/cacao-dance-curious
All are welcome. If you’d like to join the dance but feel unsure about being visible, you’re very welcome to try the dance with your camera off, or even via candlelight if you prefer. Similarly, please also know cacao isn’t necessary to feel the benefits of the music. All tracks are chosen specifically, so the playlist is a cathartic and enlivening journey in itself. Alice holds a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for all.
Advance booking essential. Please see details below.

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.
