About the event

Join us for a transformative evening retreat dedicated to setting intentions for the full moon and releasing what no longer serves us. This sacred gathering will guide you through a heart-opening experience with ceremonial cacao, fostering mindfulness, connection, and inner peace.

During the evening, we will:

  • Enjoy a 45-minute Pranayama & Contrast Therapy Session: Start with breathing exercises and contrast therapy to prepare your body and mind.
  • Meditate & Set Intentions: Give your body time to adjust and rest, setting a foundation for drinking cacao.
  • Drink Sacred Cacao: Experience the heart-opening properties of ceremonial cacao, a powerful plant medicine.
  • Meditate and Reflect: Align your energies with the full moon's influence through guided meditation.
  • Gentle Yoga Practice and Ecstatic Dance: Release stuck energies in your body with a combination of gentle yoga and movement.
  • Healing Savasana & Soundbath: Relax and rejuvenate with a healing savasana accompanied by a soothing sound bath.
  • Wholesome Food Around the Fire: End the evening by connecting over wholesome food around a cosy fire.

Please read the following contraindications carefully to determine if this retreat is suitable for you:

  • Cacao is a diuretic meaning it can increase urine production, which may lead to dehydration. Ensure you stay well-hydrated before & throughout the retreat.
  • Cacao contains theobromine, a natural stimulant similar to caffeine. This can increase heart rate and blood flow, especially when paired with use of sauna & ice baths: This might not be suitable for individuals with heart conditions or high blood pressure. If you have any cardiovascular issues, please consult your healthcare provider before participating.
  • SSRI Medications: If you are taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or other antidepressants, it's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider before consuming cacao. The combination of cacao and these medications can increase serotonin levels too much, potentially leading to serotonin syndrome, which is a serious condition. 
  • Contrast Therapy: This therapy involves alternating between hot and cold treatments to stimulate circulation and detoxification. While beneficial for many, it can be intense and may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions, please consult with a healthcare professional if you are unsure. 

Not suitable for:

Pregnancy

Under 18's

Cardiovascular issues/high BP 

Medications such as SSRI's / MAOI's. If you are taking antidepressants you can still attend however, please be transparent so that organisers can correctly adjust your doseage 

Please check with a healthcare provider if you are unsure.
