Merging with the Medicine Wheel - Shamanic Yoga and Cacao Ceremony

Sunday, July 3, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)

The Center SF
548 Fillmore St.,
San Francisco, CA 94117

Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism! Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra. We then use the ancient teachings of the Medicine Wheel to provide an anchor for this intense and transformational practice. Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds and Icaros (Shamanic songs) performed live by Priscilla, or Kula Kurandera on Sound Cloud.

Energetically guided by the cycles and winds of the four directions, we will embody the spirits of the Serpent, Jaguar, Hummingbird and Eagle. As we become each of these spirit animals, we will learn valuable lessons that will allow us to reveal our passions, to shift perceptions and to dream our world into being. You will leave the practice feeling spiritually cleansed, emotionally empowered and expansive.... ready to live life--the life that wants to live in you! Now is the time to reveal yourself to yourself. As the Hopi Elders stated: “We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.”

A cacao ceremony is an experience in multidimensional group energy. Cacao works with you where you are, and with the ceremonial facilitator through where they are.  Cacao brings the door, but doesn’t push you through it.

A major advantage of ceremonial cacao is that it makes it much easier to deeply access one’s emotional body, pain body, or density on the dark shadow side. Cacao allows you to go considerably deeper into meditation and self-healing than possible without the medicine. It also helps you gain understandings that lead toward more permanent changes.  Cacao is a heart-centered anchor that takes you where you're going with more love and less fear.

Cost: $35 - $40
