Cacao Dream and Sound Journey
- Time: 2:00pm ~ 4:00pm
Held in a ceremonial space, this offering combines shamanic journeying, sacred songs, and sound healing. The majority of our journey will be spent lying down as we are guided on a dream journey into other realms.
Cacao, commonly used in and known as chocolate, is a medicinal plant from Central and South America which is traditionally used in ceremonies and assists in opening the heart. Winter uses only ceremonial-grade cacao sourced from a women’s collective in Guatemala.
Shamanic journeying uses drum beats as a tool to induce alpha and theta brain waves guiding one into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. In this state, intuition is awakened, allowing access to symbols and memories which offer clarity, soul guidance and connection with inner wisdom.
Winter is a passionate songstress, ceremonialist and certified yoga instructor with 700 hours of training. She studied Ashtanga Yoga in Goa, India, Transformative Yoga in Northern California and Mystical Yoga and Shamanism on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala.
Winter has spent the last four years in countries and communities around the globe where she received teachings from elders and experienced many traditional forms of healing. From this spiritual work she has found inspiration and guidance for holding space and using music as medicine. Inspired by earth-based traditional ways, Winter strives to weave this wisdom into her work, guiding students to become aware of our deep connection with the earth and of the sacred space within where we find our awakening source and an abundance of love and gratitude for this journey.
