Solstice Cacao Ceremony + Picnic

21 December, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Ceremonial Grade Cacao

PAUSE, REFLECT, CONSOLIDATE | You are warmly invited to share in the raw chocolate medicine of Ceremonial-grade Cacao in this Sacred Ceremony.

This time of year can often be a busy time, with an excess of “fire energy”. Not only can the end of year mean more rushing to complete tasks, deadline and preparations for the festive season, but in the Southern Hemisphere it is the peak of summer (a time in nature which is at the apex of fire energy and lots of action). If we don’t water our spiritual gardens with gentleness and time for ourselves, the abundance of fire and “doing” can cause an imbalance in our being, often manifesting as burn-out.

We invite you to slow-down, pause, reflect on the past year, and acknowledge where you are going on your life-journey. This ceremony will be in celebration of the Solstice, the fire, and all the abundance that it brings. And it will also be a time to nurture and receive, to balance the fire and water elements.

Join Cacao Alchemists Fran (Cape Cacao) and Kelly (Inlighten Healing) as they co-facilitate this Sacred Summer Solstice Ceremony with Cacao and the solar energies to assist us during this Solstice portal. We will be immersing ourselves in Mother Nature, receiving the gifts of the beauty this time of year.
