The Heart of Mother Earth: Cacao Ceremony

  • pin Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area 4100 South La Cienega Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90056 United States (map)

El Corazón de La Madre Tierra

We are gathering to celebrate the precious gift of Pachamama and the sacred intelligence on a collective level. Together we will share the connection to Cacao as an invitation to celebrate the essence of the heart and the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Tapping into the elements of nature, sharing offerings to the land, and journeying with sound to move even deeper into this human experience and honoring the sacredness that is within us and outside of us. Nourish your day with a practice that allows you to align your actions with your purpose in the here and now.


In order to have a cup of cacao ready for you, RSVP is necessary by the morning of ceremony.

Please bring your own water, a pillow or something comfortable to sit on and a journal with pen.
