Cacao & Yoga Nidra

Friday, Nov 16th

6 - 7:30p

In this special evening led by Herbalist Haylee Lacroix and Yoga Therapist Caitlin Parsons, we will dive into a deep state of relaxation, inner connection, and expansive potential.

Haylee will guide us through a special Cacao Ceremony followed by a meditation to help facilitate the benefits of the medicine. Cacao is a Sacred Plant Medicine (pure Mayan chocolate) that is a heart opener which will give us access to unconditional self-love, a sense of bliss and euphoria, increased awareness and deepen our intuitive abilities.

The Cacao Ceremony and meditation will be the perfect way to dive into a powerful inner journey and form of guided meditation, known as Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is defined as "yogic sleep" -- however, we'll enter a state of conscious dreaming where the body and mind will be deeply relaxed or "asleep".

Yoga Nidra guides us into our inner world and gives us the opportunity to shift old patterns and blocks that have been stuck in our subconscious body and nervous system so that we can create new patterns and allow our dreams to become our reality.

In this event, we'll gather to expand our hearts, tap into our subconscious beliefs, let go of what is no longer serving us and raise the collective vibration by raising our own.

Please bring water, a mug for the cacao, a yoga mat, and a journal and pen.

Please sign up ahead of time to ensure there will be enough cacao!
