I am excited to be teaming up with Annabel James for a cacao ceremony and breathwork session at Little Beach House Barcelona this month:
Breathwork with Annabel James
Breathwork connects you with the innate power of your own breathe, opening the doorway to emotional release, removing blocks long stored in the body and and connecting you with your own inner ecstasy. During a breathwork session, you experience your body flooded with fresh oxygen, reawakening, energising and detoxifying the cells and allowing higher wisdom to enter.
Breathwork is known for its ability to dissolve barriers to love, bring greater clarity and reveal answers that await within. While the effects are unique for each person and different every session, participants often leave feeling euphoric, peaceful and full of wonder. Make no mistake, this is a journey of Ecstasy.
Cacao Ceremony with Sacred Shapes
Even one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis Carl Jung stressed the importance of ceremony as a way for us to connect to the unconscious parts of ourselves - the place from which so much of our life unfolds.
By taking part in a ceremony or ritual, we are letting the unconscious know that we are ready to strengthen, deepen or perhaps simply initiate a connection. Setting an intention brings focus to the ceremony and clarity to the line of communication with the unconscious. It is this part of us that governs our core beliefs, attitudes, our health, and responses to the world, and it is here that ritual and ceremony can deepen positive desired change in your life. With ceremony we have a power to facilitate understanding, growth, and deep healing transformation.
Cacao is a wonderful plant that has been used in ceremony and ritual and revered for thousands of years in South America for its medicinal and aphrodisiacal properties. It is the purest form of chocolate you can consume. The cacao bean is a natural anti-depressant containing neurotransmitters that stimulate the release of anandamide (the bliss molecule), serotonin and endorphins in the brain. Energetically, it is a 'heart-opener' and encourages us gently into our heartspace to explore our emotions with compassion for ourselves.
