In our Monthly Ritual Report, we tune into the astrological energies of the month and at times, internationally and nationally celebrated days. Through these understandings, we can spark inspiration and create cacao rituals that help us align with the natural cycles of the Earth.
In addition, we recommend specific cacaos to support your intentions on these special days.
Each day is an opportunity to go deeper with your ritual by dedicating more time, planning a more involved ritual, perhaps increasing your cacao dose, or planning ahead for a group ritual with friends, loved ones, and the larger community.
June Ritual Report
June 12th | Global Wellness Day
Global Wellness Day is a social project dedicated to living well with the purpose of inspiring people to ask the question, even if for just one day, “How can I live a healthier and better life, both physically and spiritually?”
Take this wonderful opportunity to reflect on that question with Vibrant Vitality Enhanced 100% Cacao. As feelings of inspiration, exuberance, strength, vibrancy, and immunity wash over you, take note of what answers bubble to the surface.
June 17th | New Moon In Gemini
A new moon in Gemini presents us with the energy of communication, ideas, and connection.
Gemini is a sign that teaches us how to be at ease with ourselves and others, how to be comfortable in curiosity rather than seeking a factual answer, and open mindedness.
Spend this day exploring these themes and activate the energy of this Gemini New Moon with a cup of Thriving Tanzania Cacao to bring about the joyful and airy aspects of this moon.
You may wish to infuse your new moon cacao practice with a listening meditation to expand your awareness of the sounds within and without. Find some relaxing meditative music, after sipping on your cacao, sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and just spend some time listening to all the sounds in the music and all that surrounds you. Observe what arises, your sensations, and then journal any insights that may have come through.
June 21st | Sun Enters Cancer & Summer Solstice
Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will be experiencing the longest day of the year! The summer solstice, in mythical terms, comes to represent the triumph of light over darkness. It is the day in which the cycles of time are inviting us to begin our expansion and take action on all the dreams that were gestating within us during the prior cycle of time. On this day, many gather at sacred sites to pray for the Earth and celebrate the gift of life.
This would be a great day for a gathering with friends in which you can share Tantric Rose Blossom, as it can connect you to the energy of creativity and sensuality. Share delicious cacao, prayers for the earth and humanity, and enjoy community.
"To claim the new and larger boundary of our personal fire, we join it in ritual to that of others, and together, dance it outward. We make sacred ceremonies not only for and with our immediate community, but for all our relations. The Lakota phrase mitákuye Oyásin reminds us, "I am related to all things, and all things are related to me."
