Cacao:

Raw cacao is a powerful and potent medicine that can assist the ‘inner work’ and creative guidance we all need to stay balanced. It literally opens the blood vessels in the body allowing more blood flow through the heart, it is known to trigger bliss hormones,  feelings of love, and a heightened awareness that can be a powerful support to sound baths and healing.

Sound Baths:

Sound Baths are a passive experience where all you are required to do is simply lay down and allow the vibrations of sound to move through you. You will be led on a deep sound journey using Alchemic Crystal Bowls and Gongs which create deep theta sound waves. These frequencies will move through you physically, facilitating the drop into a lucid space where your subconscious has room to explore and your body and mind experience deep rest. Rhythmic percussion and blood harmonies accompany KIND sound baths for a true head and immersive sound experience.

Mantras

Mantras are simple Sanskrit phrases that we sing together to allow the soul to fly. In essence, they are powerful potent formulas that create a positive transmission to the singer or receiver. These mantras have been sung by thousands of people for thousands of years and it's impossible to not feel the benefits. Sining is so good for the soul and this is a wonderful way to reconnect with ones vouce. Once again no experience is necessary and every one is welcome :) to hear one of our Mantras you can check out our Youtube vid here

 

Who is KIND? 

Jayna and her sister Bess grew up in a family of music, they are both trained musicians and singers. They are working with sound in this meditative way with the wish to connect people back towards their inner selves. They believe that when we create space to truly listen to our highest selves, miracles begin and new energy for life is found.

 

How the Evening will unfold

The evening will start together with the drinking of the cacao within a ceremonial space to set an intention and arrive. We will then drop down into our sound journey for deep relaxation and receiving followed by mantras and community.

There will be a time, at the end, to reflect and chat in the warm environment we will create together.

Come and join us in the KIND-ness. Dive into the beautiful magic that sound, ceremony and intention can bring. You and your Christmas season deserve it!

More about Cacao:

Raw Cacao is one of the Amazonian super plant, the main component of chocolate. Used by the indigenous as a source of energy and well known for its multiple health benefits, it contains high levels of antioxidants. These absorb free-radicals which cause tissue and cell damage. It is also the highest plant-based source of iron known to man and is also full of Magnesium and Calcium.

Cacao is a great source of four bliss chemicals - serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters create feelings of well-being, happiness, and can even alleviate depression. A natural, healthy, delicious (and legal) way to get your happy buzz on.

This is why is known as the "love food" of "food of the Gods". Its essence connects you straight to your heart, to release you from the mind space and unwanted emotions and bring you into a feeling of uneasiness, sparking creativity and joy.

Important Health Notes

  • Do not consume caffeine or alcohol prior to cacao - If you have some in the morning that's fine - just ease off the tea and coffee for the rest of the day

  • Drink plenty of water to make sure you are hydrated before we begin, we will have water for you to drink throughout the ceremony

  • Detoxification can occur from cacao, If you find you have a headache you may be dehydrated, have drunk too much cacao, or are detoxing with the cacao’s assistance. Your symptoms will pass and there is no need to worry

  • Antidepressants with MAOIs contraindicated with cacao and can lead to severe headaches. Do send me an email beforehand so we can prepare another type of plant-based tea or tonic for you

  • Cacao is a vasodilator and pumps more blood through the heart. Be mindful of your dosage if you have a heart condition and listen to your beautiful body

  • Any questions - feel free to ask!
