Cacao Ceremony


Shamanic Sound Journey

What's Happening

Cacao is an ancient medicine used by the Maya and other American peoples for purification and connecting to the heart. In this sound-based Cacao Ceremony, led by the members of Dream Seed and the Golden Drum community, we will provide an authentic ritual cacao drink, made from pure cacao. Then we will embark on a 2-hour shamanic sound journey in both seated and reclined meditation. We will incorporate sound healing practices designed to harmonize to help bring peace and healing to our heart, mind, body, and spirit.


All are welcome!
