Description

Fresh off the back of 5 weeks in Peru working with masters, medicine & the land, I am SO READY to share the riches with you gorgeous Melbourne bunch & dive in lusciously as we share sacred Cacao space. I’ve teamed up with Melbourne’s finest sound-healer Christian DiMarco to ride the end-of-year energy to create a powerful vortex of release, dance, deep Ceremony, shamanic healing & harmonising soundscapes to close off the year & open up the pathway for a fully empowered 2018.


We will be welcomed into earthy & grounding Ceremonial space with the sacred vibrations of Didjeridu. Moving deeply and gently into our bodies & hearts, we will sit in self-connection practices designed to support our beings to be as open as possible. From here we will be guided in the ancient Mayan ritual of Cacao Ceremony, creating a sacred space to powerfully connect with our true authentic selves.


Cacao’s medicine literally opens the heart through the neurotransmitter ‘anandamide’ – the ‘bliss’ chemical. The profound feeling of openness, love & ecstasy that results from drinking this medicine is well-known & respected for the journey it takes our being on. Cacao’s alkaloid theobromine brings sharp clarity to the mind, while extremely high levels of magnesium relax the body.


This incredible mix creates an opportunity to release & powerfully express our essence, as we dance - move - & sound - in time to the beat of our own heart, travelling on a personal pilgrimage of discovery. We move the energy of open mind-heart throughout the body to integrate, empower, release and claim. We will be supported on this journey by earthy, funky beats harmonised with djembes, drumming up the fire of our tribal hearts in support of transformation & alignment with our highest/deepest truth.


To integrate this odyssey, we will be held by Christian in a sound-healing journey focused on transforming the entire molecular structure of our beings. Vibrations of Tibetan flutes fused with exquisite crystal bowls and ancient vocals will support us to both drop in deep & soar high.


The combination of ancient practices of dance, sound healing, Ceremony, sounding & meditation combined with the potency of Cacao wisdom & Peruvian intention-setting practices, this evening of journeying with heart-felt tribe is a powerful transformative experience like none other.


We are so excited to be creating this gorgeous evening for our Melbourne collective, as we gather in the full force of love!

** Please note: If you are currently being treated for depression, Cacao may not be the medicine for you. The tryptophan and monoamino oxidase inhibitors of the Cacao are a bad mix with anti-depressant medicine. Can cause severe migraine, or worse. Please get in contact with me to discuss if this is a consideration for you.


CACAO INFO:

Cacao has been used for centuries in different cultures as a tool to facilitate a reflective & meditative experience that focuses on the heart-space. Due to the active medicinal properties of Cacao, it is possible to experience a state of heightened awareness, which opens us to deeper-stored emotional densities that are ready to be seen, felt & released.


The euphoria-inducing properties of Cacao help us to connect deeply to the love, & ultimate truth, that sits inside our hearts.


When we sit with Cacao with the intention to open to ourselves & our own vulnerability, Cacao has the potential to create a profound yet gentle inner experience of heart transformation. To help activate this opening, I have sourced the highest Ceremonial-grade Guatemalan Cacao possible.


TESTIMONIALS:

CACAO CEREMONY

"The Cacao Ceremony held by Petra was one of the most beautiful and profound experiences of my life. She held the space beautifully with a lovely mix of acceptance, freedom of expression and guided visualisation. I laughed, I cried, I danced and sung. Mostly I connected with my ancient self, beyond all time, and felt very held in that process by Petra and Cacao."

Malindi Lovegrove-Lower, Co-Director of The Chocolate Yogi.


“Petra brings a level of integrity to the Ceremonial space that is rare to find in facilitators. Her ability to lead a experiential process along with her capacity to be attentive to all participant needs is outstanding. Her work is truly transformational - from her Cacao Ceremony I discovered a whole new part of myself that has stuck with me two years on. This has been a shared experience with friends and colleagues who have attended her events. I would recommend Petra and her work to anybody that is ready to address and directly tackle any potential limitations within themselves along with anybody looking to unleash their full potential.”

Sacha Damiano, Therapist & Neuro-coach


BIO's:

PETRA LANE

Known for the wisdom, integrity & authenticity she brings to her Ceremonial spaces, Petra opens the way for people to experience their own personal enlivened truth. Driven by a desire for all beings to walk powerfully in their most integrated Self, she creates a deliciously ripe yet safe container for people to explore true connection, in this moment.

With 20 years on the healing path, her practice combines somatic process, earth-based Ceremonial methodology, metaphysical causality and practical, heart-centered action, supporting individuals to walk in the truth of their own empowerment.

Petra brings an embodied quality of softness & strength to Cacao Ceremonies, her therapeutic individual sessions, the online workshop space she facilitates, and the pilgrimages she leads around the world. She has studied the Science of Psychology at Uni, holds a Cert III in Psychosomatic Therapy, specialises in trauma therapy / neural re-wiring, & has a compulsive tendency to do cartwheels and handstands whenever she’s in a park. And dance. Anywhere, anytime!
