Cacao Ritual + Sound Bath
Join us for a Cacao Ritual + Sound Bath led by Sarah Balmer, ascension mentor + spiritual entrepreneur, and Jenny Shanks, Spiritual Medium + Mentor held at the beautiful Foxhollow Farm. Cacao is a sacred plant medicine used since ancient times for healing the body, mind and soul. Through this guided experience, you’ll discover the beauty of working with cacao to open and explore the depths of your heart. We’ll also be working with the healing frequencies of crystal singing bowls to expand, integrate and more deeply know the higher harmonic of your own heart. Bring a journal, pen, and an open mind ready to connect, share and receive the magic of your own heart that cacao will so graciously show you.
Cacao is the pure, raw and unrefined form of chocolate. It is bitter to taste and possesses a powerhouse of nutrients such as fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, protein, and antioxidants. It has a stimulating effect on the body and is known for its heart opening qualities that guide you deeper within to explore what’s there. When we come together in ritual, we work with ceremonial grade cacao in a sacred way to engage with the spirit and energy of the plant that has been produced with such love through mindful farming practices. This is very different than engaging with chocolate as candy and has a positive impact on wellbeing as well as our global ecosystem.
While cacao has been enjoyed and celebrated ceremonially for thousands of years, it is important to take precautions based on your individual health journey. Cacao contains theobromine which increases the heart rate and is a vasodilator. It may not be appropriate for those with serious heart conditions or high blood pressure. Those taking antidepressants such as MAOI’s or SSRI’s may experience migraines hours after. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it may be best to lower your dose until you’re aware of how it interacts with your system. If you have any concerns, it is advisable to consult with your doctor prior to consumption.
Doors open at 6pm and we will start at 6:30pm EST on Tuesday July, 2022 at Foxhollow Farm.
