Allow the tender and compassionate energy of Mama Cacao to support you in living your life with reverence, intention, & embodiment. Both energizing and grounding, cacao serves as a simultaneously gentle, yet potent, ally as we drop deeper into our authentic expression. In the ceremonial space, we are supported in honoring our reality while imagining the beauty that is to come.

Becoming attuned to the external, and internal, seasons of life allows us to live more fully in the present, experience vitality in our bodies, minds, and spirits, while deepening our connection to nature. For this Autumn Equinox, we honor the season as we come together to receive the medicine of Cacao and Breathwork. Breathwork helps us cleanse the mind and restore the spirit while cacao tenderly holds us in the sweet release.
We will begin with ceremonial Cacao served by Ashley Grewe of Mythical Chocolates. Cacao is often considered a feminine plant, offering us the warmth of a beloved grandmother who reminds us both of the goodness in our life and that even in seasons of release, there is always more beauty to come.
After Cacao, Amanda Ramirez will guide us through a gentle breathwork practice to soften, release, and restore. As we soften into the season of autumn, the breath invites us to cleanse our internal and external landscapes. From there, we can draw energy back into our bodies to fortify ourselves for this new slower season of Fall.
After breathwork, you will be invited to journal, hydrate, enjoy nourishing snacks, and connect with the community who collectively chose to begin this season in ritual and intention.
