About the event

Lucia will invite you for a light Cacao & Blue Lotus Cacao Ceremony to start the day, helping you to reconnect back to self and the Earth, feeling blissed out and loved up for the rest of the day!

Blue Lotus plant has been used ceremonial wise and for medicinal purpose's back in Ancient Egypt. The plant itself was symbolic for the rising and setting of the sun. The old Egyptians linked this plant to the sun god and the story of creation. Based on scientific research and evidence from ancient history Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Lotus) should relieve pain, induces euphoria and ecstatic states, sexual promotion and in high doses it will induce visions.The plant contains the alkaloids Nuciferine and Apo morphine. It is an very beautiful addition to Cacao, both plants melt together beautifully.

The dosage in the Sacred Cacao & Blue Lotus ceremonies is from an intensity in where you will be total comfortable to drive or travel home afterwards.

Join Sebastien and Ellie around the fire for some Kirten.  After singing or chanting for some time, we typically enter a gentle, soft, calming, trance-like meditative state that allows us to drop into the present moment, as we sing to praise the divine in the many forms in which it manifests.

They will then invite us to end the evening with Ecstatic Dance!!

Dance like no one is watching you; dancing without the judgment of others and dancing without limits.

Ecstatic dance is a free form of dance with the goal to achieve ecstasy. This is a natural state in which your awareness shifts and you get to experience a meditative and happy state of mind through body movement.  This form of dance has been practised throughout human history and is known as a meditative activity that helps us cope with stress, move through emotional blockages and allow us to step into our edge so that we may grow. At first, it can be daunting to dance in a group without any drink or drugs. This will test your ego, but after 10 minutes, your awareness shifts and you get to experience a meditative and blissful state of mind where you feel totally free and that anything is possible!

There are no steps to learn and no moves to master, you are simply invited to move your body intuitively guided only by the music and your body's deep intelligence – that knows exactly what it needs to heal and grow! The music is provided through a high-end sound system and takes you on a powerful sound journey through the 5 elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air.

When we combine with Cacao the dancing practice is amplified beyond measure allowing you to enter enhanced states of bliss, inner connection and deep healing.

More Cacao & Blue Lotus shots will be available for the evening.
