Cynthia’s passion and work lies between the realms of Shamanic traditions and the power of sound. Connecting to her ancestral Guatemalan roots, she has built a profound relationship with cacao and other plant medicines during her training with both Shipibo and Andean shamans, and continues to cultivate this relationship daily. Cynthia’s voice and channeled melodies, in their force, wholeness, and depth, create a deeply safe container to begin unraveling the blocks in our hearts in order to facilitate the disentanglement of beliefs that keep us small. This sound and vibration, accompanied by heart-opening cacao shines a guiding light on the dark places within which we are often afraid to face. This is Cynthia’s mission: to allow us to embrace all of ourselves so we may truly begin the journey to loving ourselves unconditionally; allowing space for the dark and the light in order to bring about transformative and lasting change.

Called a "Yoga Rebel" by Yoga Journal Magazine, Jocelyn Gordon is known for her joyful integrations of dance, yoga and meditation - HoopYogini™ and Bhakti Boogie Yoga. She has toured nationally with Wanderlust and is a six time presenter at the Bali Spirit Festival. In her household, there is a clear distinction between candy and dark chocolate, the latter being healthy and medicinal. Although dark chocolate has been always been a part of her life, it wasn’t until she lived in Bali, Indonesia that she experienced cacao as ceremonial. From her peers in Ubud and her own explorations of chocolate in the kitchen and at her altar, her relationship with cacao has expanded from being a primary anchor in helping her child become toilet independent at 15 months, to being a key component in many meditation and movement journeys. Her interaction and offering with cacao is a quiet, breath and body focused practice that is contemplative and allows space for the emotional body to open and express.

What can I expect?
We will guide you through a 1-hour & 15 minute experience that includes a mix of the following elements. You will prepare your own ceremonial space and your own cacao before the ceremony starts.
Will these be recorded so I can watch after?
I’ve never done a cacao ceremony, how should I prepare?
Set the space
Make your cacao
Keep an open mind & heart
We know new things can be a little intimidating, which is why we wanted to offer these ceremonies in a way that is approachable. Let go of expectations :) If nothing else, think of this as a special time you can set aside for your self-care a couple of times a month.I want to join but that time doesn’t work for me.
We hear you - the ceremonies will be recorded & e-mailed out so you can sign up and then watch them at a time that works for you.
I don’t have cacao right now, can I still join?
Yes! While cacao will support your ceremony experience, gathering in ceremony is beautiful and effective with or without cacao. We do recommend stocking up before our next ceremony, though!
*Note when you sign up you need to confirm your email address before you will receive the Zoom meeting LINK and PASSWORD in a separate email.
