 7-8:15 p.m. 

Canceled: "Sacred Cacao Ceremony": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less Sacred Cacao

Drinking sacred cacao in ceremony is considered spiritual medicine by many indigenous cultures around the world. As we sit together in a small group and consume this sacred beverage, practice mindfulness, participate in guided meditation with intention in a backdrop of sacred sound, our soul is nourished, our heart opens and we experience greater spaciousness. It is a time for deep reflection and connection. The sacred cacao is prepared with intention, prayer and love.
Group size limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration required.
Please arrive 10 minutes early, and bring a meditation cushion an optional shawl/blanket. Fast 3 hours prior and arrive hydrated. Class is upstairs.
Facilitated by Victoria Schon.
Verapose Yoga & Meditation House, 3173 Baker Road, Dexter. $25. victoria@veraposeyoga.com www.veraposeyoga.com/events [map]
