Sacred Cacao & Music Medicine with Mapstone
Date: Sunday, Aug 19, 2018 ~ 5:00pm - 9:00ish
Lions Bay Village Hall, Lions Bay, BC
We are so excited to once again have the opportunity to co-create a blissful and joyful evening with Mapstone who are touring from Australia. Join us for a blessed experience of Sacred Cacao, Sound Healing, and Music Medicine as we welcome and move into the bright, light vibration of abundance.
You may like to start your day swimming at one of the local beaches before you head up to the venue and our blessed evening. We will begin with a cup of warm, ceremonial Cacao elixir, which will support our hearts in opening to the Harvest season’s energies of abundance so we can carry these into our lives.
As you are guided in shamanic journey, your experience will be supported by the healing vibrations of drums, crystal bowls, songs, and chimes.
Mapstone will be sharing music from their album, Spirit Songs which was recorded, and is performed in the healing Earth Harmonic of 432hz. We will have space and time to dance and embody abundance as they bring together ancient traditions with modern music in a symbiotic merging of sound and ceremony.
Mapstone's instrumentation includes voice, guitars, didgeridoo, ukulele, flutes, bass and percussion. The music is a blend of world folk, prayers, and sacred tones which weave perfectly with our evening’s ceremony and celebration.

*Cacao is most supportive on an empty stomach. Have a nourishing meal earlier in the day, and then a very snack or smoothie around 2pm.
*PLEASE NOTE - from the evening before our circle: no dairy and refrain from ingesting altering substances such as caffeine, alcohol, marijuana, recreational drugs, etc. This will allow for a deeper realtionship with the cacao.
