Let's pause and step into our power to lead a massive movement and "come out" from the
burden of trauma in our lives. Let's claim happy, healthy, and balanced lives!
Studies show that the Queer community is four times more likely to experience deeply traumatic events such as microaggressions, assault, and discrimination and 48% of LGB and 42% of T people are living with PTSD. Our community is in need of healing. What better way to lean into our shame and begin processing this hurt than through organic, natural plant medicine supplemented by our own life-giving breath?
Join hosts Brooke Carlson and Dallas Bragg for this powerful healing journey. The adventure will begin with a Cacao ceremony and segue into a guided shamanic breathwork practice. Cacao, a sacred plant medicine found in the Amazon, is a true gift from the Earth. Also known as "the food of the Gods," Cacao has long been considered a luxurious delicacy and is renowned as a potent heart opener as drinking it can induce feelings of emotional intimacy and pleasure. Together we will honor the Cacao spirit with prayer, and humbly ask for our intentions to be heard. Shamanic Breathwork is a dynamic practice that can help create more space, heighten mental clarity, expand in liberation and aid in releasing blockages that that limit one's potential. Brooke will teach a very specific way to breathe that will lead to an abundance of oxygen flooding the system which helps facilitate participants' ability to move beyond ego and foster greater connection to one's higher self. Beautiful music, shamanic drumming and other tools may be utilized to help support participants on this journey. The activation of the Cacao within the body and heart in conjunction with the breathe will allow for a truly transformative and ecstatic process to unfold.
**Please bring your own mug to enjoy the Cacao from. You will also need a yoga mat as well as anything that will make you comfortable in the breathe - eye mask, pillow and/or blanket (some blankets and bolsters will be available for use).
