Join Maddie from Alchemy Yoga and Lucy from Cacao Keeper for this unique experience that marries the grounding practice of Yin with the healing ritual of Cacao.
Cacao is a perfect complement for Yin yoga, as this sacred medicine connects us to the core of our being - the place where we return to balance, steadiness and joy.
We begin with the Cacao ceremony for which Lucy draws together her experiences in Peru with plant medicine, ceremony, and sound to create a powerful and healing space.
Lucy has been sharing Cacao Ceremony for the past three years around NZ as a weekly practice, workshops, retreats, festivals and immersions.
Then Maddie will share a beautiful heart-opening Yin practice that will embody the energy of Spring whilst helping us to centre and ground.
Why Cacao Ceremony?
Cacao has a long lineage of being used to accompany ceremony and as a tool to access spirit, ancestors, and remember the sacred.
Originating from Peru, cacao was picked up by the Mayan and Aztec as they journeyed over this land. Taking the medicine of Peru to Guatemala, Mexico and other Central American countries where there is still a close relationship with cacao to this day. Together we will share Cacao Keeper’s ethically sourced Cacao from Peru for this ceremony.
In today’s time, we are remembering the sacred and ceremonial aspect of cacao to enhance our ability to live in harmony with what is around and within us.
