Did you know that "cacao" in its origin meant "food of the gods"? Join me and Krissee (of Riversea Chocolate) for this experiential workshop for those interested in creating a deeper relationship to the life force of chocolate in its pure form. We will connect to our bodies and open our senses with through a gentle flow class that will lead us into the intentional preparation and ingestion of cacao drinks. Krissee will share a bit about the history of cacao drinks and the process of making chocolate. A grounding movement meditation practice will prepare us for a luxurious body scan relaxation practice, journaling & creative space, and time to share & discuss. There will be compostable cups available, but please bring a cup of your own. A pen and paper or your favorite journal will also be useful.
