You deserve some time to relax.

Open your heart, release and reflect at our cacao ceremony and gong bath.

Your evening will begin with a delicious, warming cup of Amazonik cacao. Marjory is Venezuelan and imports the cacao to the UK, she prepares it using reiki and loving intention and a unique blend of healing herbs.

Rachael will be your sonic guide. Having worked with energy and sound since 2017 she’ll begin the journey with a heart-opening meditation to prepare your body and mind for the experience of the cacao and sound bath. We will then set our intentions with the cacao and share the drink as a group creating a feeling of connection.

Think of a gong bath as a simple, heart-centred-short-cut to meditative reaching states. You lay and listen to the gong and other instruments as your body and mind intuitively go to work helping you reach altered and healing states. Once the gong is finished Rachael will welcome you back using grounding sounds and affirmations.

There is a little time for people to share afterwards should they so wish, although this is never forced or necessary.

The benefits of working with cacao and gong: 

It's a medicine for the mind, body and soul.

Cacao is is a powerful Plant Medicine known as “The Food of Gods”, it helps release emotional blockages that no longer serve, find forgiveness in ourselves and others, and empower you to embrace the necessary life changes in order to move on.

Both gong and cacao help you to reach altered states of consciousness, deep meditative spaces, clarity of mind, and deeper connections to your intuition and have been known to allow people to access blocked or stuck emotions from their past as well as promote deep and peaceful sleep.

In the years that Rachael has been playing the gongs, she has seen miraculous results with people reporting migraines disappearing, anxiety calming, improved sleep patterns, healing surgery pain and other incredible recoveries.
