Higher Heart: Cacao Ceremony & Sound Journey in The Sanctuary

March 27, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Are you ready to tap into a deeper well of inner wisdom?

Would you like to access a more authentic expression of your Divine Love?

The high heart chakra, or the thymus chakra, is said to be ‘the seat of the soul,’ and helps you to move past the physical plane, returning to a connection with unconditional divine love. When activated your heigh heart chakra facilitates a deep inner transformation, by expanding your sense of forgiveness and compassion.

In this two and a half hour shamanic journey we will open up to selfless love and self-love with the help of the sacred plant medicine of Cacao. She gifts us the invitation for deep heart connection and when coupled with ritual and sound can be a source of healing and renewal.

Together we will;

  • open and co-create sacred space
  • connect into our hearts and body wisdom with Cacao (read this intro guide to Cacao for more info)
  • expand into the healing light of the heart through visualisation
  • awaken to a practice of forgiveness, for self and others
  • walk the labyrinth to the centre of our hearts deepest longing
  • heal, release and restore with a sound bath

Tara Sanctuary at Mana Retreat Centre is a sacred space built with the intention for deep sound healing. The resonance of this building will activate our sound bath experience in ways that words cannot fully express.  With the hypnotic tones of crystal singing bowls, voice and rhythmic drumming, we will awaken the high heart and soften into an expanse of unity and universal love.

If you have never been to the Sanctuary before please let me know so that I can give you specific instructions for how to get there (it has its own driveway).
