All are welcome to join a delicious workshop to nourish and liberate the mind, body, and soul. This is an event to honor the beauty that exists inside and out in a sacred circle through tantra, shamanic drum journeying, and tantalizing raw chocolate treats. We will glorify the true magnificence of ourselves and cultivate a deeper unconditional love and acceptance for all.

We will expand our hearts, connecting with our godliness/goddess within through powerful shamanic drum journeying, discover tantric teachings by the fantastic Luba Evans, and savor magical healthy cacao-infused treats* made by Sarah Eve.


Awaken your astral energies and gain access to the Transcendental Other through tantric shamanic meditations, breath work, chanting and movement. We journey together, reminding your body that it is liquid and your mind that it is cosmic. As our heart opens it releases Amrita, the divine nectar of immortality, the “drink of the gods.” Great for beginners!

Energy Exchange: $30 paid RSVP, $40 at the door

Come honor your own divinity and meet new friends. All are welcome- gods, goddesses, singles, couples, partners, raw vegans, chocolate lovers, and the curious alike!!!

“This is why the shaman is the remote ancestor of the poet and artist. Our need to feel part of the world seems to demand that we express ourselves through creative activity. The ultimate wellsprings of this creativity are hidden in the mystery of language. Shamanic ecstasy is an act of surrender that authenticates both the individual self and that which is surrendered to, the mystery of being. Because our maps of reality are determined by our present circumstances, we tend to lose awareness of the larger patterns of time and space. Only by gaining access to the Transcendent Other can those patterns of time and space and our role in them be glimpsed.” ― Terence McKenna, Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge

* Raw chocolate=connection=love! Connection fuels our creativity and opens our hearts. The Greek genus “theobroma cacao” also translates to "food of the gods". In addition to promoting healthy mental and emotional states, raw cacao beans have enormously positive effects on the cardiovascular system in the body. Cacao contains polyphenols, the same beneficial antioxidants contained in red wine. It is entirely possible to enjoy the health benefits of drinking the recommended "daily glass of wine" by simply eating chocolate. Yup. Raw chocolate LOVE.


“Thank you very much for the wonderful event. Thank you for all the love and thoughtfulness that you put in this evening.”

“I’m still riding the wave from the event so my spirits have been up. I’ll definitely have to think about eating raw chocolate more often. I am so grateful to all of you for making the event so special. I feel powerful, sexy and playful. Last night I met a new guy on the way to work!”

“I really appreciate how wisely this event was organized and how much effort you put in this.”

“I am so grateful to all of you for making the gathering so special. I had forgotten how wonderful it is to make connections with other people.”
“Thank you to everyone for being so kind, open, supportive, loving, caring, and thoughtful during the event. Luba and Crew - it was so well organized and planned… it felt like you read my mind and thought of everything I needed/wanted”
