About the Workshop
Are you ready to spread your wings? To ride the updraft of life and allow yourself to soar?
Beltane is an invitation to open to inspiration and allow life to show you its beauty and your part in co-creating it.
It is the perfect time to gather in ceremony, surrounded by nature to breathe in the vital life force that connects us all.
In this two hour celebration of life we will:
💜 Gather around a fire, surrounded by nature, just like our ancestors use to.
💜 Open our hearts to the seen and unseen forces that support and inspire us, with the guidance of Ceremonial Cacao.
💜 Activate our senses and drink in the beauty and wonder of our natural world.
💜 Lean into the practice of shamanic breathwork, visualisation, guided self exploration, shared songs and wisdom.
💜 Come home to rest in gratitude 🙏
Let us touch the magic, taste the sweetness and enjoy the festive energies of Spring!
Seats in this sacred circle are $20
Cash on the day.

What To Bring?
• A water bottle to stay hydrated
• Your favorite mug for the Cacao (we have plenty but you may like your own special one)
• An open heart, a sense of curiosity and a willingness to share & connect with others.
Optional Items to Enhance Your Comfort
• A journal for self-reflection
• Something comfortable to sit on and warm layers depending on weather.
To receive the full power of the Cacao it is suggested to not eat a big meal prior to the ceremony and avoid any other morning stimulants (like coffee). It will also be encouraged to drink lots of water before and after the ceremony to stay hydrated and support in the assimilation of the cacao throughout the day.
* You do not have to drink Cacao to attend and receive blessings from this ceremony, herbal tea will be available as an alternative, please let me know when booking if this is your preference. *
Level 2 Guidelines
We will be gathering outdoors which loosens the need for masks, however you are welcome to wear one if it makes you feel more comfortable.
I ask that you please avoid hugging others as you arrive (I know it's hard!!) and help us to create space for everyone to have the necessary social distancing.
Ceremonial grade cacao is not recommended for you if you have a serious heart condition, if you are taking antidepressants, or if you are pregnant. It is also not recommended to mix with alcohol or other stimulants (like coffee). That said please let me know if you have a condition that may affect your Cacao experience and we discuss alternative options or dosage amounts.
If you have any questions please reach out, I am here to help.

I look forward to sharing this heart warming journey with you.
