Heart of Solstice ~ Shamanic Circle. Cacao Sound. Dance Beats

Saturday, December 22, 2018 ~ 7:00pm - 11:00pm

Winter Solstice is a sacred portal through which we travel in and down to our deepest depths to receive and celebrate the return of the light. This sacred portal allows us to illuminate our heart, our gifts, and our path ahead.


Our evening will begin with sacred Cacao Ceremony to support our guided shamanic journey with Grandmother Owl. We will travel within a sound bath of crystal harp and singing bowls, gong, frame and steel tongue drums and return with gifts to offer our Solstice Despacho.
After the ceremony, DJ Uncle Willy will be serving up some infectiously happy and festive dance beats to keep your body moving and your spirit uplifted.
Vendors with Solstice goodies, as well as delicious vegan treats will be available for purchase.
