Embrace the Wisdom Within and Embrace Change

Step into the season of transformation and introspection. Come together to resonate with the harmonizing frequencies of sacred sounds and the gentle, compassionate energy of cacao. All those who are drawn to the call of these sacred elements are invited… 

No prior experience or ‘good voice’ is required; everyone with an open heart and mind is welcome!

Autumn’s Symbolism of Change

Autumn embodies change – much like leaves falling from trees, life shifts its course by shedding the old to welcome the new. Autumn beckons us back to our core, urging us to release what no longer serves and uncover what truly matters. Each season imparts wisdom about the world and ourselves; autumn’s lesson lies in introspection, release, and spiritual connection.

The Autumn Equinox marks a moment of stillness before the Earth’s directional shift. This sacred day holds equal parts light and dark, yin and yang, and invites us to face both outward and inward. It melds our past and future into the present moment.

Journeying Inward, Harmonizing with Sound and Cacao

Embark on an inner journey, shedding what is unnecessary and resonating with the transformative frequencies of healing sounds and the tender, nurturing energy of cacao. This retreat is an opportunity to recalibrate, heal, and embrace the full spectrum of our being – both light and shadow.

“Wholeness for humans depends on the ability to own our own shadow.” – Carl Jung

This one-day workshop extends an invitation to sing, sound, voice, play, explore, and awaken various facets of ourselves through vocal expression, sacred sounds, and cacao. It serves as a pathway to reconnect with our authentic selves, liberating aspects that may have long been silenced or obscured.

Sacred Sound, Voice & Cacao Retreat takes us on an inner odyssey into the healing potential of our most intimate musical instrument – our voice – entwined with the alchemy of sacred sounds and cacao. This process aims to silence the cacophony of inner voices and foster a new relationship with the transformative essence of vocal expression, drawing us closer to our beautiful, authentic selves, souls, and essences. The voice is our bridge to the cosmos, connecting us to the greater spirit, the source.

Throughout this retreat, we will reclaim the natural way of authentic vocal expression, untethered by judgments, conditioning, traumas, or limiting beliefs. This will help us tap into our essence, freeing buried emotions such as trauma, fear, anger, guilt, and pain.

“Vocal expression is about authenticity, not perfection.”

The retreat culminates in a Sacred Sound and Cacao ceremony. This journey within is guided by the healing tones entwined with the raw ceremonial cacao – a sacred plant utilized in South American rituals for millennia. Cacao facilitates communication with our inner wisdom, while the healing vibrations of sound open doors to deeper realms. During this ceremony, we release burdens, shedding negative emotions, outdated thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that hinder us. Amidst the enchanting vibrations of sacred sound, cacao particularly addresses heart blockages, creating a space for connection with our inner truth, divine light, love, and gratitude on a profound level.

Join us to harness the energy of new beginnings, manifest your intentions, and embrace your inner light!
