Winter Solstice-Women’s Cacao Ceremony

Winter Solstice-Women’s Cacao Ceremony

Sunday 4th of December

15:30-18:30

£30

In winter everything lies dormant in the silent earth, it is a sacred time of rest and reflection before the awakening and the slow build toward brighter days. This time of year brings an opportunity to let go of unnecessary thoughts and patterns. With the cacao, we can then reflect on our intentions for the next part of the cycle.

The energy of winter is that of going within. As we consciously link our awareness to nature’s cycles, our understanding of our own personal growth cycles begin to deepen.

Let yourself be held and supported in this nourishing space as you surrender into deep rest. We will share ceremonial cacao in combination with breathing exercises, restorative yoga, and guided meditation to enter a restful state. These practices activate the parasympathetic nervous system, reversing the effects of stress, and cultivating a sense of relaxation.

Included:

-Ceremonial cacao & Intention Setting

-Restorative yoga for soothing the nervous system

-Journaling & oracle cards

-Sound journey
