Autumnal Equinox workshop - cacao, yoga, mantra, crystal sound

  • 39 Ladbrook Drive Colchester, England, CO2 8RW United Kingdom (map)

As we move from Mindful to Heartful we invite you to step into full embodiment and a beautiful connected experience of your radiant self.


We begin at 1:45pm with an intention filled ceremony with beautiful heart medicine and teacher plant Ceremonial Cacao. This is our chance to invite the spirit of cacao to journey with us.

We take the time to ready ourselves for some intention setting with shared techniques as we work clearing residual energy and balancing our energy centres.

As we move into mudra, meditation and a gentle yoga practice, our bodies become eased and our minds become quieted. The practice of yin yoga promotes subtle change, repatterning our fascia allowing space to slowly develop, shifting our energy and purpose from doing to being. 

We then flow effortlessly into balanced harmonics, allowing the blissful crystal frequencies to wash over us with a beautiful sonic massage using 7 x 432hz tuned Quartz Crystal Bowls.

Now we have vibrated into bliss we bring the focus internally and to the intentions we wish to manifest for this coming cycle, creating our own mantras with this vocal activation, a very powerful practice that works with our subconscious mind. Our voice is a powerful tool for healing and these simple techniques do not require anyone to be a singer in anyway!

Our focus as always is our heart space, we release all holding us back, bring in our heart's desires and move forward with clarity to create with gratitude, ease and grace.

Leave feeling aligned, clear and connected to your heart. Fully grounded having had a wonderful experience of your expanded self in the present moment of now, vibrating at your optimum level.

A deep and powerful resonance comes from the combination of ceremonial cacao, physical embodiment, and sonic massage. Harmonic Resonance is created. Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual stability occurs, it is from this place we create.

Ceremonial Cacao

Cacao as a teacher plant is a beautiful ally in this work. One of the most incredible super foods on the plant and a heart medicine like no other. We are empowered by this deep connection to our hearts and in turn can tune in and really listen to what our heart perception is.

"An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rain-forest to open people's hearts and return the planet to harmony. In one of my early communications with the Cacao Spirit, She referred to cacao as "The Food for the Shift"."

-- Keith, the Cacao Shaman

Mesoamerican and South American cultures such as the Maya and Aztecs revere Cacao as one of the most sacred medicinal foods on our planet. It's Latin name 'Theobroma Cacao' translates as 'food of the Gods' denoting its high prestige. Cacao is emerging at present as one of the most empowering medicines to support the evolution of humanity, primarily due to its magnificent ability to work on the Heart.

PREPARATION before a Cacao ceremony:

It is wise to steer clear of caffeine, dairy & alcohol for a few hours prior to drinking cacao.

Please drink plenty of water! Hydration is super important as water is an amazing conductor!

If you find you have a headache you may be dehydrated, drank too much cacao, or are detoxing with cacao’s assistance.

Antidepressants with MAOIs contraindicate with cacao and can lead to severe headaches. Doses will be adjusted accordingly.

Cacao is a vasodilator and pumps more blood through the heart.

Please get in contact prior to if you have a heart condition or if you have any other questions.

Ask your heart to allow! ♥

Andrea works alongside physical embodiment facilitators, holds monthly group New Moon Sound Baths and Cacao Ceremonies alongside providing 1-2-1 frequency nutrition and sonic massages for small groups and individuals in the UK.

"The combination of Cacao, Yoga and Crystal Sound creates a wonderfully deep experience of self. If you struggle with shutting of the mind then a crystal bowl sound bath can help you to achieve the benefits of meditation without you consciously having to quiet your mind. The body begins to teach the mind and responds to the pure crystal tones beautifully.

Quartz crystal has many amazing properties.They amplify, transform, store, focus, and transmute energy. Cymatics shows us that certain frequencies create beautiful geometric shapes in the water molecules of the body allowing the body and psyche to come into balance and a natural state for healing. Our bodies are also crystalline in structure, we reach deep levels of resonance creating balanced harmonics. When working with the heart, intention Cacao, yoga & the crystal singing bowls we add an additional layer of relaxation, deepening meditation and relaxation. I am so excited to be sharing this work with you all"
