Cacao is a powerful facilitator
From 3 pm until 6:00 pm
At - Syntropy Dynamics Society
1141 Crestline Road, West Vancouver.
Primarily, this event will serve as an opportunity for all of the spirits who participated in the Retreat on June 12th to revisit their experience. We will offer a special Integration Circle where these experiences can be shared in a safe environment, with others of like mind.
It will have been 3 weeks since that retreat took place making this an excellent time to participate in a Cacao ceremony. This ceremony has the potential to take each participant on a journey of re-visitation and new discovery.
WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE -
- The Sacred Pipe Ceremony
- Breathing and Somatic exercise
- Journey(s) to non-ordinary reality to connect with spirit
- Live Icaros from the Amazon and
Mantras from the East
- Acoustic Sound Medicine
- Joyous Release through Dance
- (and perhaps a little bliss...)
THE MEDICINE -
Raw unprocessed Cacao is sacred plant medicine which is chalk full of really great stuff which is as GOOD FOR YOU as it is TO YOU.
Cacao opens the heart and allows for a deeper authentic love based connection with yourself, others, nature, and the Universe. This medicine can be your conduit to Oneness - the knowledge that you are ONE with the universe.
Cacao can promote powerful journeying and connection with spirit. Chocolate is a powerful facilitator 🙂
Cacao can help bring awareness to things that have been preventing you from creating the life you love. Cacao can also aid in releasing repeated patterns, beliefs and blocks which could be stopping you, slowing you down or standing in the way of creating the life you love.
FLOW OF THE CEREMONY -
Please arrive on time as late arrivals have the tendency to disrupt the sacred space.
After prayers to spirit and the smudging of the space and participants there will be time for a quick introduction from everyone. The Sacred Pipe Ceremony will be offered. We will drink promptly and continue with breathing and somatic exercises.
We will journey 3 times to non-ordinary reality to connect with 1) Ally Spirit 2) Teacher Spirit and 3) Merge with Tree Spirit
Songs from the rain forest, mantras from the East, and First Nations spiritual drumming and chanting will be offered. In addition, various acoustic instruments will be used to create a sound bath.
Upon the close of the ceremony we will enjoy a light snack.
INTEGRATION CIRCLE -
A special integration circle will be offered where participants of the June 12th ceremony will have the opportunity to speak of their experience and visions. I am sure that these stories will be most interesting to everyone.
WHAT TO BRING -
You may wish to bring something soft to lay on (mat), a pillow, and a blanket. As an alternative, you can bring a 'low profile' chair or a Back Jack. A bandanna or other cover for your eyes, to help black out the daylight, is also helpful.
We will supply a simple snack and bottled water.
HOW TO PREPARE -
o Minimize the drama in your life.
o Complete pending tasks.
o Eat a light meal in the afternoon as Cacao will absorb better on an empty stomach.
o Lay off the caffeinated beverages as Cacao contains a light amount of caffeine itself.
o Walk in nature and collect an object (stone or stick) to bring with you
As we are compensating the venue, providing medicine, and offering snacks we are asking for a donation of $10 for participants of June 12th retreat.
It is my sincere hope that this Cacao event will help to round off your healing path while providing a connection to nature and spirit while on your sacred healing path. All the while, this event will help me, on my path to spirit. The practice of the Dieta, meditation, and ceremonial participating can be an exceedingly grounding and spiritual force.
