Please text me to see if there is space for today's ceremony as we are down to the last couple - mob[masked]. I have a card machine and cash is also accepted.

Ceremony is a beautiful opportunity to take time out of your busy life to spend time with your Self and other women - to hear your inner guidance on how to move through your blocks, connect with your deepest desires or maybe to gently release stress , let go of the past and open your self to more Love & Compassion.

This Ceremony is in the perfect time for review and realignment after the intensity of the eclipse season (the first partial Solar eclipse on the 13th July, then 27th July for a full Lunar Eclipse, finishing with another partial Solar eclipse on 11th of August - And Solar eclipse after effects usually lasts about six months.)

Cacao is a gentle, loving Plant medicine that heals wounds in the heart by dissolving old and stale energies, memories, and stuck emotions. It can help us shift from fear consciousness to love consciousness.

We will start with some simple stretches, breathing and sounds to allow you to relax more deeply and open the heart chakra; setting intentions which will be a significant aspect of the ceremony (please give some thought to this before coming) with the use of Oracle/Tarot cards; drinking a ceremonial grade and dose of cacao (dissolved in hot water); then lying down for a guided visualisation with shamanic drum and Gong Healing.

Website with more details here (http://nataliefishwick.com/home/cacao-ceremonies/).

Please bring:

A yoga mat/sheepskin/camp mat, warm blanket & water, crystals or anything you'd like to add to the altar representing your intentions, or the Divine Feminine/Goddess Energy, notebook/pen for any journalling and Your Healing Intention. I will have a few spare mats/blankets if you can not bring them but you must book them in advance.

Wear whatever feels good ❤️ ( extra cushions are also good, or even a thin inflatable camp/thermorest type mat).

If it's warm we will start in the lovely back garden and then move inside.

Please eat a lightly before and avoid caffeine so the stomach is relatively empty for absorption of the cacao.

Cautions: Our Cacao is prepared especially for ceremony and comes from the Ashaninka tribes of Peru . It is safe to drink however please make us aware if any of the following apply to you:

If you are taking anti depressants or any other medication
If you have a heart condition as cacao increases the blood flow to the brain and heart by at least 40%
If you are pregnant as we will give you a smaller dose

"Being involved in Natalie’s cacao ceremonies have been some of the most enjoyable moments in my self discovery journey. The warm and welcoming environment that Natalie provides is such a safe place for me to “be”. And it’s always the right place at the right time. The learnings I take away are always relevant and support my inner growth so profoundly. As a regular attendee I think there is also an accumulative effect, I get more and more out of these ceremonies every time.

Cacao is such a loving nurturing experience for me and it truly does open my heart, which makes Natalie’s ability to hold a safe space even more important – it’s a real gift. It’s a huge part of my self care programme and I go whenever I can."
