This is both an important and potent time of year as we cross through the equinox, welcome spring and experience our first thunderstorm.

This is both an important and potent time of year as we cross through the equinox, welcome spring and experience our first thunderstorm.

Please join us as we bring two great ceremonies together to celebrate and experience these teachings as we connect with grandmother earth.

Cacao, originates in Mesoamérica and is of the Theobroma genus. Theobroma can be translated to “Food of the Gods”. Although her history is blanketed in mystery, the Theobroma genus has been dated to over 10 million years old, with Cacao as one of the oldest trees in this genus. By intentionally connecting with Cacao, we are connecting with a plant that has been around longer than the Andes Mountains! An ancient medicine, Grandmother Cacao is a heart opener. It is said she shows herself where the medicine of Love and Harmony with Pachamama and all her relations is needed.

Through opening the heart, Cacao enables us to hear our true self, work through blockages and past traumas, dissolve any pent-up negative energy, and help us align with who we truly are. She can help to ease our everyday stresses and worries, as she encourages us to get more in tune with our positive, optimistic, joyful side. A Sacred Cacao ceremony is rooted in helping to re-balance the energies within us, and restore good health, harmony and wholeness.

The pipe ceremony will be conducted following Anishinaabe traditions. There will likely be several pipe carriers sharing their pipe, traditions and experiences as they traveled the red road. The pipe is loaded with tobacco and other local herbs. There are no drugs in the pipe. The pipe will be passed and each person will have the opportunity to pray with and (optionally) smoke it.

Space is limited so a RSVP is required.
