About the Event
Let go of what has outlived its purpose & trust that something else will take its place🍂
Join our community circle for an evening of 𝘳𝘦𝘧𝘭𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 & 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 as we gather for the equinox🥀 Autumn is a time of balance that embodies the energies of the west, the sacred element of water & our emotional bodies🌊
We'll drop in together by learning about ceremonial grade cacao, a sacred ally & plant medicine that's indigenous to the lands and peoples of Central & South America. This circle will include meditation, journaling, dancing, and more.
Be sure to bring a journal and pen, water, and something to sit on like a cushion or yoga mat.
**Please arrive at 5:45—the opening circle will begin at 6!**
🍂a brief announcement & love note🍂
As we enter the third season of this year, I'll also be entering my third trimester of pregnancy— this will be the last Creatures community circle I'll be guiding for some time as I flow with the resting & nesting of what this season in nature & in my life brings! If you've been waiting to join in communion & ceremony, this one is for you, honey! Thank you to all who've shared space with us this year— it's been a tremendous blessing to meet you in the sacred. To those who can't join us for this ceremony— I hope you have the autumn & winter you intend to, surrounded by love, devotion & peace🕊

📢 Important Update
Our intention is not to replicate or reproduce traditional ceremonies of the Central and South American indigenous people's practices of cacao.
We openly acknowledge that our facilitator's ancestral lineage is different than that of the medicine we serve, but she has been initiated into the knowledge of cacao medicine to use in modern cacao ceremonies, not in traditional indigeneous ceremonies. Most of the information that has been shared with Autumn has come from the Zapotec leader, Maria, from Oaxaca, Mexico.
We invite curiosity and questions. We encourage you to use your voice and to give feedback regarding this offering.
We are here to serve and to listen.
Cacao Trade and Sourcing
We’ll be drinking and learning about Ora’s Oaxacan Spice cacao☕️
This ceremonial grade cacao is sourced from Ademayach in Guatemala, a 180 hectare farm, that currently has 125 families in its community; cacao cultivation remains to be 90% of this communities source of income. This blend is enhanced with fiery cinnamon, cardamom, ginger & cayenne—a modern interpretation of the way ancient peoples of Central & South America loved drinking their chocolate, hot & spicy.
