New Moon Cacao Ceremony with Empress Alchemy

Registration is now open!

New Moon Cacao Ceremony
with Empress Alchemy
in the Gallery at 3S
Thursday, January 19
7 - 8pm

Join Sarah Comer of Empress Alchemy to celebrate the first New Moon of 2023 with a Cacao Ceremony.

This immersive and interactive meditation experience is designed to work with the energy of the cacao and astrology of the lunation. The ceremony will be held in the Gallery against the backdrop of an exhibition of artist Sarah Nguyen's work, Walking Out of the Shadows, which seeks to dissolve the boundaries of waking life and dreams.

New Moons represent the beginning of the lunation cycle and this first New Moon of 2023 sets the tone for what’s to come in the year ahead. Expect to learn a bit about the astrology of this New Moon and then be guided through meditation exercises focused on intention setting for the New Year. Participants will be served ceremonial grade cacao blended with water to create a “hot chocolate” mix.

Ceremonial grade cacao is revered as plant medicine and has been used for thousands of years by indigenous cultures as a way to open up the heart space. Using cacao in this way facilitates heart healing and allows wisdom and guidance to be received through mind-body expansion. With this intention in mind, participants will then be guided on an inner journey using meditation and movement to bring forward and align with the healing wisdom of this plant.

Please plan to bring a blanket or pillow to sit on and a journal to write in.
