Ritual Ceremony and Sound
There is an ever growing need for orientation within
the ever-expanding vastness and fastness of life.
Ritual and ceremony offer us an opportunity to align with the cyclical nature of being. A space is created, to release, receive, weave, celebrate, honour and commit in community. When we balance ourselves to the natural rhythm of our living planet, our transformation continues, within and without.
Honouring the Wheel of the Year and the moon is a powerful way to create markers in your life. It helps us know there is a time for everything and that we have the power to guide our lives in a positive direction. It's a simple practice that begins with creating sacred space through meditation and intention. This allows a container for the ritual which can be as simple as lighting a candle, speaking your truth or moving your body, witnessing or being witnessed. There is a deep remembering when we sit in a circle or work together that is undeniable. These groups form collective energy that can co-create powerful change on many levels.
KIND Ceremonies are non dogmatic and welcoming to all. Jayna creates a held environment for people to feel present and open. She guides her groups with intuition leading authentically from her own experiences. Her empowered and loving approach spreads through her ceremonies to all who participates.
Sound Healing works with resonance, the frequencies created effects our mind by dropping out of Beta brain waves (mental activity) and into Alfa (the present moment), Theta (vivid imagery) and Delta (healing and regeneration). Sound healing works as a life hack into meditative states. As the same time, the subconscious part of ourselves is given room, ideas, perspective shifts emotional releases often occur. It is a powerful and effective gift to ourselves within fast-paced city life on so many levels.
KIND sound healing works are a passive experience where all you are required to do is lay down, get cosy and allow the vibrations of sound to move through you. KIND creates an immersive experiential sound journey using Alchemic Crystal Bowls and Gongs which create deep theta sound waves. Gongs, Shamanic rhythmic percussion and ethereal voice work and light language interweave with the Bowls for a Divinely feminine and loving transmission. Jayna leads a short and grounding meditation to bring people in and out of the experience.
Ceremonial grade cacao simply means raw, unrefined, cacao that is produced organically by the tribespeople of Central and South America where the use of cacao originated from. The cacao is made with respect for its power as a plant medicine. KIND cacao comes from a small tribe in Peru, through one trusted supplier. Love and care towards people and the planet have been kept every step of the way.
When drunk in a ceremonial setting, it is a beautiful tool for connection inwards and outwards. It is medicine for the spirit and soul known for its heart opening properties, physically increasing circulation and blood flow through the heart. It helps in the natural production of bliss hormones such as phenethylamine and serotonin as well as being extremely high in antioxidants, magnesium and vitamin C.
In KIND Cacao Ceremonies, Jayna creates a warm space for people to join together. She leads with a welcome and introduction before the ceremony beings by drinking with intention. The format is then free for what is called for, cacao is a natural aphrodisiac and energy lifter, it’s the perfect partner for sharing, dance and movement, group voice work or breath work. This leads beautifully into sound healing or meditation where the fruits of the ceremony can be integrated and received.

“What it's like coming to one of KIND Yoga, Jayna's classes, the Cacao Ceremony? For me it's a massive de-stress moment, to come to something that just totally switches your mind off, and unlocks your body. It's a definitely kind of peaceful moment in my week or my month when I do it. It's like a stopgap and a complete refresher. I kind of give it a miss though when she's not here, so I'm looking forward to her coming back. Yeah, it always puts a smile on your face.”
“I found KIND Yoga in January and went to their Suffolk retreat. And after that retreat, just connected with Jayna, Bess and George. I wanted to seek out as many events that they were doing as possible. They create such a great space, a welcoming space. It's coming from such a genuine place. Noticing that they remember all the faces and friends, and it's welcomed with such a big hug, makes you feel safe. You can really be yourself and relax, and be free and wild. And they created that through KIND Yoga”
“This happens to be the second Cacao Ceremony that I've attended, and I couldn't recommend them enough. They're fantastic. We do things like drumming with the music, dance with a bunch of people that you don't know and hug them, and you lose any kind of inhibitions, any kind of egocentric beliefs like I'm not good enough, I can't mingle with these people. You just let that go and you become free, and you really center yourself. You really actually listen to the most beautiful music and then afterwards you have to hug those same, beautiful people again. I just couldn't recommend it enough. The only thing that's bitter in itself would be the cacao, and even that is worth it for the sweetness of the whole night.”
