Investment: $20 advance registration/$25 day of
Open your heart with sacred cacao and journey with the beat of the drum as we connect with the energy of August’s Full Moon and surrender to the call of the night, exploring what the moon’s light is illuminating in our lives.
This offering combines ceremony, shamanic journeying, sacred songs, and sound healing. The majority of our journey will be spent lying down as we are guided on a dream journey into other realms. Intentions and prayers will be set along with a question or reason for why we are seeking in this way, and with the opening the cacao offers us, along with the music, sounds and vocal narrative, we will journey so we may cultivate a deeper connection with the moon, finding healing and clarity and receiving the wisdom we seek.
Cacao, commonly used in and known as chocolate, is a medicinal plant from Central and South America which is traditionally used in ceremonies and assists in opening the heart. Winter uses only medicinal-grade cacao sourced from a women’s collective in Guatemala.
Shamanic journeying uses drum beats as a tool to induce alpha and theta brain waves guiding one into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. In this state, intuition is awakened, allowing access to symbols and memories which offer clarity, soul guidance and connection with inner wisdom.
Winter is a passionate yoga instructor, songstress, Moon Dancer, and keeper of sacred ways. Inspired by the magic of yoga which she first experienced in the jungle of Costa Rica, she traveled to India where she received her first 200 hours of training studying Ashtanga yoga. Shortly after, Winter received another 200 hours of training in Transformative Yoga in northern California. Most recently, Winter studied in an advanced course on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala and received 300 hours of training in Mystical Yoga and Shamanism, expanding her knowledge in indigenous wisdom and practices.
Winter has spent the last four years in countries and communities around the globe where she received teachings from elders and experienced many ancient forms of healing. From this spiritual work she has found inspiration and guidance for holding space and using music as medicine. Inspired by earth-based traditional ways, Winter strives to weave this wisdom into her work, guiding students to become aware of our deep connection with the earth and of the sacred space within where we find our awakening source and an abundance of love and gratitude for this journey.
