Heart & Prayers
Heart & Prayers
A women’s ceremony and community promoting connection, compassion, and creative prayer. As we enter our ceremony, Sacred Cacao, a gentle heart opener, will help us fully unlock our self-compassion.
An in-person experience
No previous experience necessary
Have you been longing to take the next step in your spiritual journey?
A journey which deepens the connection both within and without?
A path which connects you more fully to your heart and divine love?
To create something that brings peace and healing to yourself and others?
To experience deep joy?
If so, Heart & Prayers is calling you.
We begin our ceremony with a gentle meditation to bring our whole Selves into sacred circle. Once we are in a more present state we will begin our journey with Sacred Cacao. Ceremonial grade cacao is a gentle heart opener, while at the same time boosts our energy and love channels. Sacred Cacao also bridges our physical and emotional bodies allowing us to be more connected and whole. The Spirit of Cacao will be our inner guiding light to more fully unlock our self-compassion.
Mother drum, the heartbeat of Divine Mother, will guide us deeper into the healing realms of the ancient soul medicine of Sacred Cacao. The unique combination of Drum and Cacao will support us in aligning our energetic fields with Divine Love. Our inner altar of our heart will then be prepared to create prayers for our personal world or that of the collective.
After connecting more deeply to our inner light, we will explore creativity as prayer, our powerful birth right. We will tap into the spiritual practices of our eldest ancestors to create connection and healing. As a group, we will intentionally release our prayers into the world thereby exponentially magnifying our creativity and positive intentions. Joy bursts forth naturally.
“In speaking our truth and fully loving ourselves we are not only freeing our heart but also healing our soul” -Pauline Saade
