Endorsed by Curators:
Join us for a cacao-infused, fully immersive night where we'll explore how a new paradigm party can be both juicy and grounded, sexy and safe, spontaneously fun and sustainably transformative. Together we can re-envision what it even means to have a conscious gathering. Think of it as a party thats also a workshop on how to party consciously!
Throughout the night youll be guided in exercises to soften into your hearts and cultivate deeper safety and connection for yourselves and each other. These mini-workshops will be interspersed throughout a conscious dance party DJ'ed by Yeshuda Adioni, with an opening cacao ritual led by Nick Meador.
On some parts of the journey youll be guided into more internal exploration. In other parts youll be invited to interact and play with others. And you can always relax in the tea lounge, talk with others, stretch, cuddle, or simply BE. Skilled spaceholders will be available throughout the night, so you can check in if something comes up that needs to be worked through.
The path into the future is a path back into our bodies. The dancefloor is a microcosm for how we dance through life. Sacred celebration is a kind of communion, a way for the divine to come into this reality. But the time has passed when we can assume that were all on the same page about what conscious community or conscious celebration really means. We can fall into the flow of the divine, but we also need practical skills to take care of ourselves and one another.
A NOTE ON CACAO
Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection. Nick serves cacao grown organically at a family farm in eastern Guatemala, prepared by a women's collective at Lake Atitlan that he met personally, and obtained through ethical direct trade (for more info visit bit.ly/soulliftcacao).
