  • Sebastapol, CA USA (map)

All identifying as women are welcome.


Sign up here.

We are kicking off our monthly women’s circle in Sebastopol with a heart opening cacao ceremony. Something magical happens when women come together in intentional circles, and we’re so excited to be creating this sacred sisterhood together.

For our inaugural circle we’ve chosen to work with Rose cacao, an incredible superfood that helps us open our heartspace and connect more deeply with one another. The Mayans and Aztecs considered cacao “The Food of the Gods” and revered it so much it was once used as their currency. We are blessed to have access to this medicine and these traditions as we collectively heal the feminine and raise our consciousness.

During the ceremony Denell, Maggie + Sena will share earth wisdom practices, medicine songs, and sacred activations to connect us more deeply with ourselves and with each other.

 *Important* If you are on any antidepressants, are breast feeding, have any heart issues or a history of epilepsy please let us know.

What to bring

- blanket, small pillow, and anything to make yourself comfortable

- warm & comfortable clothing

- items for the group altar

- journal + pen (optional)


Before ceremony:

- Set your intention: With both cacao and sound, coming with a clear intention can deepen the experience. If you wish, spend some time before the ceremony preparing your intentions.

- Avoid Caffeine & Alcohol: In order to experience the subtle yet powerful effects of cacao, we recommend avoiding alcohol and caffeine the day prior and the day of the ceremony.

-Have a light meal in the morning: It's best to eat a light meal for breakfast/lunch so the cacao can assimilate more easily. We recommend that you do not eat within 4 hours before the ceremony begins.

- After Ceremony: The medicine will continue to work with you after the ceremony ends. We recommend having an unscheduled evening post-ceremony so you can continue to process and integrate. We will have some light food after the ceremony to ground your experience.
