With Caroline Costa
8.30am - 11am
This is a plant spirit circle that is held with the intention for us to pray and bless ourselves, our community and the sacred land we have the opportunity to live within. During the ceremony, we will drink the medicinal elixir of Cacao in a ritualistic context.
This style of ceremony also includes others earth-based spiritual practices, such as moments for prayers, silence and rituals of blessings. The healing power of smudge and the spiritual work with tobacco and rapéh are also a part of the circle.
Your ceremonialist, Caroline, is a Latina woman that has been studying and practicing healing prayers with plant spirits (psychedelics and non-psychedelic) since 2008. This circle will be a fusion of styles she has been dedicated so far, specially weaving the medicines of Yoga, Umbanda and a fusion of South American shamanism.
This ceremony has in it's core values respect and love, open to all forms of expression and with a trauma-informed approach. The practices offered are inclusive and decolonial-oriented. The presence of BIPOC community is deeply encouraged. Expect lots of singing and praying for Pachamama (Mother Earth), Taita Inti (Father Sun), Mama Killa (Mother Moon), the Orishas, the Nahuales and other special wise celestial beings in languages such as English, Portuguese and Spanish!
