About the Event
We all belong to this sacred Earth
Inspired by the Taurus new moon, we're envisioning ourselves in balance with Earth and our inner selves. This ceremony is anchored in springtime celebration as the date coincides with Earth Day!
Ceremonial grade cacao is a plant medicine indigenous to the lands and peoples of Central and South America. Learn about this heart-opening plant and enjoy a mug of cacao with the community circle. We'll also drop into guided meditation, journal, and experience sound & movement medicine.
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!**
Autumn Màiri is a Sacred Plant Ceremonialist, who's been dedicated to the plant empowerment path for 6+ years, receiving a comprehensive Cacao and Ayurvedic Herbalist education. It's Autumn Màiri's appreciation and love for the teachings of master plants that brings her to serve the community through folk medicine and ceremony. May we all remember the surrounding Earth magick and medicine that supports us, aho.
📢 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 Mystical Mushroom cacao☕️
This ceremonial cacao comes from 300 1-5 acre organic family farms in the foothills of southern Belize. It contains a medicinal blend of mushrooms (reishi, lion’s mane, chaga, and more) that boosts your body and spirit and gives the cacao a deeply earthy profile. Learn more about Ora Cacao here.
