3-Day Full Moon Yoga, Meditation, Sound Healing, and Cacao Retreat

Day 1: Friday (REFLECTION)

October 27th October

Upon checking in, guests will be gathered and a reflective session will be initiated, focusing on intentions for the weekend retreat. This practice is a guidance towards heightened concentration, aiding in retrospection about the changes we wish to bring into our lives. The Hunter’s Moon is believed to be a time of reflection and introspection. It provides an opportunity to delve deeper into one’s inner self, discover the strength for positive life changes, and embrace healing and spiritual growth.

Day 2: Saturday (RELEASE)

October 28th October

This phase is considered a period when the veil between the physical and spiritual realms becomes thin, making it an ideal time for transformation and spiritual growth. Dive deeper into your inner self under the full moon’s influence during a potent cacao ceremony. This ceremony cultivates greater openness and presence, helping you understand and release what may be blocking your growth. Cacao ceremonies offer clarity and enable profound self-exploration. A Cacao Ceremony is a spiritual ritual involving ceremonial-grade cacao to facilitate connection, healing, and self-discovery.

After the full moon’s energy dispels negative influences, we are left with a sense of purification and renewal. This marks a time for personal growth, as it enables access to the inner knowledge and wisdom. It encourages creative expression, allowing exploration of creativity and novel forms of self-expression. On our final day, we will relish our last morning practice, moving with greater lightness and readiness to embrace the next cycle, armed with the wisdom we’ve gained. We will depart with increased confidence and a profound sense of connection to our true selves.
