Soul Immersion – A Winter Solstice Cacao/Breathwork/Sound Healing Ceremonial Event
The Winter Solstice foretells an auspicious event: it celebrates the birth of the new solar year and the beginning of winter. It acknowledges that, from this day, the days will again increase in length and growth of new life will be assured. In the coming months, the seeds sown will break through the darkened earth and draw energy from the life-sustaining rays of the Sun.
The ancient and globally celebrated rites attending the Winter Solstice symbolise the innate creative powers of nature that lie just below the surface at this time of year.
The Winter Solstice offers a wonderful opportunity to come together with friends or spend time alone and take a moment to refocus; to put dreams into place for spring; to contemplate the seeds we plant within our heart and the blessed Earth; and to reflect on and be grateful for all that has come to pass. While winter has a profound effect on the world outside, the inner human journey similarly quietens and slows as the energy of the season supports introspection.
I invite you to join me to ready yourself and plant the seeds for the months ahead and ready yourself for a time of introspection. I invite you to partake in this Cacao/Breathwork/Sound Healing ceremony, clearing out the old and preparing yourself and sowing the seeds for the coming springtime.
Relax and unwind, as your mind, body and soul are immersed with a ceremonial Cacao Ceremony followed by a Breathwork/Sound Healing Journey to further relax and help you to receive, heal, soften, activate and remember.
Pure Ceremonial Cacao is a magical and highly vibrational plant medicine. In sacred ceremony and as an accompaniment to Breathwork & Sound Healings, Cacao facilitates deep meditation and shamanic journeying to aid in the release of negative energy and blocks in the heart space.
It is a gentle heart expanding ceremony.
Shamanic Breathwork is a powerful healing modality.
It is one of the quickest ways to get out of our mind’s way and reconnect with our self.
Shamanic Breathwork is a process of controlled and conscious breathing, used to awaken the inner self.
When you have control over your breathing, you can explore parts of your mind and body that would otherwise not be so easy to reach.
Sound Healing is an ancient meditative practice that uses different musical implements to create healing vibrations around the body in a meditative state which help bring the body into a state of vibrational balance and harmony.
Sound Healing is one of the most gentle, proven ways to help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, by using sound frequencies to relax your nervous system, your body can enter its natural state of healing.
Combining the beautiful heart opening effects of cacao weaving in vibrational plant essences (Bach/Aussie Bush Flower and other vibrational essences all intuitively picked for the group) following on from this will be a Breathwork session and then weaving in the healing effects of sound with a variety of beautiful instruments such as the Gong, Rav Drum, Crystal & Himalayan Singing Bowls, Shamanic Drum, Native American Flute, and more.
I invite you on a journey within opening yourself up and clearing out the old to welcome in the new. Also inviting you to prepare for a time of deep introspection over the winter months and planting the seeds for the coming spring.
