A word about the facilitator - He is on a healing Medicine Path himself. This ceremony, and others like it, are an important part of this path. He has completed his 3 year Shamanic apprenticeship, made 3 excursions to Peru, and practiced the art of Kung Fu for 14 years. Feliz has been facilitating sacred ceremonies since 2014.
In this 3 hour session you will experience -
The Sacred Pipe Ceremony
Despacho Ceremony (time permitting)
(and perhaps a little bliss...)
Cacao, a sacred plant medicine, 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.
Cacao can promote powerful journeying and connection with spirit
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.
Chocolate is a powerful facilitator :-)
Please arrive on time as late arrivals have the tendency to disrupt the sacred space.
Flow of the ceremony -
After prayers to spirit and the smudging of the space and participants there will be time for a quick introduction from everyone. We will drink promptly and begin our guided shamanic journey immediately thereafter.
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. Shamanic Healing work will be offered to each participant. A shamanic story (different for every event) will be told.
Upon the close of the ceremony we will enjoy a light snack while we share our experience in an integration circle.
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
We ask for a donation of - $40 RSVP or $50 at the door
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.
