~ Heart of Solstice ~
Sacred Cacao & Shamanic Sound Ceremony
Date: Saturday, December 16 ~ 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Vancouver, BC
Winter Solstice is a magical portal where the light returns revealing the sacred seeds of our gifts. Join us for a beautiful Solstice evening of ceremonial Cacao with shamanic alchemy and sacred sound to carry us deep into our hearts and these precious seeds.
Our evening will begin with the sharing of ceremonial Cacao medicine to support and nurture our guided journey in the sacred soundscape of crystal harp and singing bowls, frame and steel tongue drums, percussion, and soul singing! This unique experience is a beautiful way to heal and attune our vibration to love, bring compassion to what needs our attention, and open our hearts to truth.
