Love Your Vibration - Cacao & Crystal Sound Bath Ceremony
LA’s first-ever dual cacao and sound bath ceremony combining the unique properties of bean-to-bar organic cacao from our farm in Jesus Maria.
Embark on a journey with ChocoVivo as Patricia, owner of ChocoVivo, leads you through an authentic Cacao Ceremony. Drawing on her extensive experience and deep understanding of cacao as more than just chocolate, Patricia unveils the ancient Maya tradition behind this sacred ingredient. Sharing the wisdom imparted by a Mayan Woman Shaman, Patricia guides you through a genuine cacao ceremony, offering a profound connection to the roots of this ancient ritual. Immerse yourself in the rich history and cultural significance of cacao, as each sip brings you closer to a blissful state.
Following the cacao ceremony, you will transcend into the realm of a crystal sound bath led by Lumiere Soto, a master in the art of using pure crystal bowls meticulously designed to attune to specific frequencies. Lumiere believes that "Sound can reach the wounded parts of you that medicine can never find."
Deeply rooted in both science and sacred geometry, sound therapy boasts a history spanning over 40,000 years, renowned for its ability to foster inner harmony and facilitate profound physical healing.
This journey of cacao and sound will guide your brainwaves from the normal (beta) state to a relaxed (alpha) state, progressing to a dreamlike (theta) state, and ultimately reaching the rejuvenating delta state.
Relax and unwind in our Cacao Meditation Lounge as you bask in a state of sublime relaxation, indulging in this decadent 2- hour cacao ceremony and sound bath. It will be unlike anything you will have experienced on this special day.
Each attendee will receive a special care package to take home to create their own solo meditation.
Time: 7 - 10 PM. Stay for another hour to share with our community, continue to meditate, or write your thoughts. We will stay open until 11 PM.
