In deep bubbling excitement we unveil the thrid of The Circle’s Monthly CACAO CEREMONIES, a deep gathering for Truth, Freedom and Creative Expression.

Cacao excites us. It’s accessible and powerful. Known as the “Food of the Gods”, Cacao in its pure raw form stimulates blood flow to the heart, brain, skin and is chock full of antioxidants, minerals, alkaloids, neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, vitamins and minerals that have a particularly nourishing effect on the human body. Awareness and focus is heightened and sensations are intensified. With over 1200 chemical constituents, the beans from Theobroma Cacao appears to be one of the most pharmacologically complex plants in the world. This Heart-opener simul

ates feelings of love - containing phenylethylamine (PEA) which helps the body create feelings of excitement and euphoria.

It’s thought cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures.

Cacao in the context of a safe, beautiful ceremony opens the way to deep relating, emotional release, inspired creativity with a open-hearted focus. It can be strong, firm, bursting straight through the heart and the body. This creates a rare opportunity to explore and sit with the stories of the heart and to identify areas that are causing you restriction, limitation and pain. Many people report a deep sense of joy and peace, a connection to something bigger than themselves as well as insights of limiting behaviors, thoughts and feelings that are able to be understood and released within the safe environment of the ceremony.

Ceremony deepens our experience of life and adds richness, depth and meaning. It is a label that describes a concentration of intent and attention where we consciously create richer moments.

The Circle’s heart-parents, Jess, Yin Ling and Soraia will guide us into a beautiful full 3-Hr Ceremony. Deep relating and sharing, Medicine and Heart-Songs, Breath and Shamanic Inner Journey, Dance and Movement in communion with Nature.

This will be the beginning of the Ceremonies that will be held monthly, and many other regular offerings that will be unveiled. Do follow us on Facebook!

$60 for the 3 hour ceremony

6-9pm - Cacao Ceremony

By the Grandmother Tree, behind the Botany Centre at Botanic Gardens Tanglin Gate. The tree can be found between the Heritage Museum and the CDL Green Gallery.

— In this beautiful fairly private space that is mosquito-sparse, we have had great response for previous ceremonies held in this space.

Previous Cacao ceremonies held with Soraia, Jess and Yin Ling have been held to great response and review, praised for the integrity and beauty of facilitation and the powerful, deep and lasting effects of the ceremony for release, insights and communion with self and spirit.

Please fast for a few hours prior to coming to the ceremony. Avoid dairy products that day. Bring something you can sit on, your sacred altar items, a notebook and pen if you wish to journal about your experience, mosquito repellent and a large filled water bottle.

Contact Jess at [masked] if you have any questions or concerns regarding the ceremony.
