Tantric Expansion Cacao Ceremony
Oct 21 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Tantric Expansion Cacao Ceremony

With Nick Meador

 

Join transformational facilitator Nick Meador for a cacao ceremony weaving together holistic (mind/body/spirit) therapeutic practices to break through what’s limiting your true potential and start maximizing your life purpose and fulfillment.

 

This will be a “white tantra” experience focused on soul healing and life force expansion. We’ll de-armor the body and clarifying the mind so that we can create more productive life patterns. This opens up the path to more bliss and connection with the divine, whether within ourselves, with a partner, or with a whole community. *This is not specifically a couple’s workshop. Individuals and pairs are all welcome.*

 

We’ll have an opening circle to support each other with intention for the ceremony. Nick will serve the indigenous plant medicine cacao, grown organically in eastern Guatemala at a family farm that he visited personally. Pure cacao opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection.

 

Then Nick will lead you through an embodied practice such as an OSHO active meditation or a bioenergetics exercise. These shake things up on the cellular level, so we can reset the nervous system and re-write the muscle memory to literally feel more free and energized.

 

Afterwards we’ll have an interpersonal exercise that still involves the body but adds in a communication element. This could range from re-patterning unhelpful social conditioning, to guidance around safe touch and intimacy. Then Nick will lead an integration circle to close the journey.
