*~At our new Healing and Ceremony Space in Copper City!~*
Join us for a celebration of Lunar Beltaine, and the grand opening of our new healing/ceremony space (after many moves and shifts) and the transition from Bright Star Astrology & Healing Arts into Jennifer Elen Bríd and all it represents!
Enjoy healthful and decadent treats and refreshments (gluten-free and vegan offerings) followed by a Beltaine cacao ceremony - the perfect way to celebrate this most sensual "full bloom" time of year where the veil is thin and possibilities for manifesting, intutive insights, and magic abounds.
Exploration on the traditional themes and current astrology of this year's Beltaine, shamanic drumming/meditation, and a Green Wheel Oracle card reading weave together many elements for a synergy of growth, transformation, and joy.
What is Ceremonial Cacao? Cacao is a fully lucid, playful plant medicine that super-oxygenates the body 30% - 40%. It contains natural MAOI inhibitors (anti-depressant), and creates new neural pathways in the brain. It is rich in minerals and is a natural aphrodisiac. Cacao is equally grounding and energizing, containing theobromine and caffeine, while many people report experiencing deeper, more peaceful sleep and lucid dreaming after drinking cacao. Many people report bursts in creativity, feeling more aware and alert, able to navigate the present moment with greater clarity and more rooted while being more rooted in a healthy sense of self and Heart Truths. Ceremonial cacao also heightens intuition long and short-term, allows for deeper states of meditation, and brings about a greater sense of confidence, playfulness, and well-being. It has been reported by participants in past circles to aid in certain types of addiction.
Ceremonial cacao is brewed with local spring water (or other purified and ethically-sourced water), with local maple syrup and spices to make cacao's medicine more available for the body and create an even richer sensual experience. Ceremonial cacao is naturally dairy and gluten-free, and is safe for those with food allergies or pregnant/nursing mothers as well.
*~What to Bring~*
Those who attend are encouraged to bring water, a journal and something to write with, small objects that hold special significance for you creatively or spiritually, and simple art supplies or a small musical instrument if you wish (in the event that inspiration strikes!).
