About the event

We understand life has been a wild ride, with lots of intense shifts, cracks showing in decaying systems creating so much deep healing, it is time to replant seeds for the new. It is an exciting time to be alive right now, let us prepare for what the rest of the year has ahead with intention. The portals of the aquarian age stand wide open and we all have an opportunity to continue our paths towards becoming who we want to be on this planet and in this lifetime.

More about the Journey:

Let us gather in ceremony to release the old patterns and behaviours that no longer serve, let us make space for the new.

You are essential on this earth, here for a reason, a purpose much greater and you no longer need to carry what is dimming your light, this is your time to release and shine.

This evening is intended to get you closer to connecting with your true self, we will gather and set our own unique intentions leading into a sacred ceremony to open our hearts with cacao medicine from Peru to activate the journey before we embark on a deep shamanic sound journey.

You will be bathed in singing bowls of various frequencies to balance your chakras and the ancient yidaki (didgeridoo) with its deep grounding vibrations as you drift away into the nether realm enveloped in incense as different instruments and sounds fill your wings with fresh air to soar through the timelines ahead. We will close the space with a ritual that allows us to gently shed our skins before we spring forth into rest of the year ahead.
