NEW MOON CACAO CEREMONY
New Moon…a time to create, release, renew or begin. The extra energy, the power is enabling….follow your intuitive self….and avail yourself of this new moon energy.
The new moon is a time of initiation and new beginnings. It is the time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in your life. Making a wish, an intention, a promise, or a vow is a common custom. It is believed that as the moon grows, your intention or goal will too usually by the time the moon completes its cycle and returns full circle to new again.
WHAT TO EXPECT
I’ve been hosting meditation evenings and full/new-moon meditation gatherings such as these and what I’ve noticed is that coming together in this fashion is really wonderful and can uplift the entire community. And when the community is uplifted, it has immense benefits in our daily lives and in the lives of others.
My guided meditations are easy to do and suitable for people from many different backgrounds. They do not reflect a particular religion or spiritual tradition. Instead, they are universal in their style and expression.
Each gathering will be unique and have it’s very own MOON theme, ritual, and purpose depending on our planetary state and group needs.
We have LIMITED space, so be sure to BOOK to reserve your SPOT ♥
WHAT IS A CACAO CEREMONY, AND WHEN DO PEOPLE SEEK THIS MEDICINE OUT?
A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space.

HOW DOES A CEREMONY GO – WHAT’S THE RUN OF PLAY?
The cacao is honored with meditation and inner reflection. We begin by sitting in a sacred circle, honoring the cacao spirit, and humbly asking for our intentions to be heard.
Depending on what’s being called for, Natasja intuitively offers storytelling, meditation and/or card reading. We then enter into a sharing with each other, of what we want to let go of and what we are calling in, which creates an intention for our journey.
WHAT TO KNOW
