FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20th at 7pm
In pagan mythology, the equinox is called Mabon, or Second Harvest. It is a time to give thanks for the summer and to pay tribute to the coming darkness.
Join Aureliaslight at the magical Sticks and Stones Farm and Retreat Center for a uniquely inspired meditational journey for the Autumnal Equinox through the spirit of plant medicine and divine sound!
In a clear and sacred space, the journey begins with personal intentions, story and the heart opening power of ceremonial drinking cacao. We will briefly discuss the “Food of the Gods” and its healing properties as it prepares us to turn our gaze inwards for a short guided meditation. Recipients are then bathed in the healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls, frame drum, rattles and koshi chimes and singing. The Spirit of Cacao intensifies the sound journey with increased oxygen, awareness and the release of “bliss” chemicals within the body.
Recipients can reach a highly relaxed state of consciousness from the transcendental sounds, as the cacao helps to allow the energetic process to unfold with connections to sensations, emotions and the feeling of expansion… This higher state is where your own innate healing abilities are able to work more effectively to bring you back into optimal vibrational alignment!
Please bring a yoga mat, water, pillow, shawl/blanket and anything else to help you feel comfortable. No alcohol or other substances beforehand. Light meal 2-3 hours before (depending on sensitivity). Ages 16+.
*Limited to 14 guests for this special once a year event
Preregistration is required -$40pp
*Contraindications: People with a major heart condition (increases heart rate 15-20%), those using anti-depressants/anti-psychotics (SSRI, MAOI), Pregnancy/Breastfeeding (smaller dosage should be taken).
Cacao is bitter and may cause nausea which is why we serve 2-3oz (listen to your body). Water will be your friend before, during and after the ceremony. The more cacao you consume on a regular basis, the less you need.
