RITUALS & CEREMONIES
“This is what rituals are for. We do spiritual ceremonies as human beings in order to create a safe resting place for our most complicated feelings of joy or trauma, so that we don't have to haul those feelings around with us forever, weighing us down. We all need such places of ritual safekeeping. And I do believe that if your culture or tradition doesn't have the specific ritual you are craving, then you are absolutely permitted to make up a ceremony of your own devising, fixing your own broken-down emotional systems with all the do-it-yourself resourcefulness of a generous plumber/poet.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Ek Chuah + Cacao Ceremony
In this enlivening ceremony, we honor the chocolate deity, Ek Chuah, and the medicine of Cacao. We learn to dance with the Divine Masculine, and to open our hearts fully. We give offerings to the spirits of the land, to the elements, and to those allies that guide us daily, and call upon them to support the clarity of our vision, nourish our passions, give us strength & focus in the pursuit of our dreams, and ground us in the courage to create what we seek in our own lives. Cacao opens us to receive the medicine of these healing energies and helping spirits more fully; it awakens the desires of our heart.
- Saturday April 29th 6pm-9pm

Women's Moon Circle
Over the last several years we have offered a monthly wisdom circle for women; it has been beyond beautiful. We have gathered in loving presence, honoring and witnessing for one another. Each month we have worked with a plant & animal ally, explored the shadow self, received wisdom on the influence of astrological energies. Most importantly this is a circle that has held space for the dream seeds each woman is planting in her own life. The result has been beauty beyond measure, powerful transformation, and connections that will last a lifetime.
Our next circle begins in May; it will be open to all women desiring more ritual, inclusive spirituality, earth-centered ceremony, and the connection of sisterhood who are prepared to make a heartfelt commitment.
