Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal. BELTANE RITUAL: Since Beltane is so closely associated with FIRE we will be having a Beltane ritual and fire circle in ONE! We will be adding our prayers and intention to a part of the effigy which we will light and burn to release them to the Great Spirit. This ceremony is primarily shamanic in nature and may or may not reflect commonly held Pagan ritual formats. Note that due to the public nature of these ceremonies, participants will be allowed to come and go as needed. Through our intentions as a community, the sacred space will remain strong and intact. FIRE CIRCLE:

(1) This is a sacred fire circle. For more information on how fire circles «work» please check out the EarthFire website at the link below:
