Join Sophia for a meditational journey through the spirit of sacred plant medicine and divine sound!
Love chocolate? Cacao beans, when sourced thoughtfully, prepared ceremonially, and enjoyed with intention, is a potent energetic medicine that exists on a different plane than your regular chocolate bar.
This Reiki infused organic raw cacao drink is a super food! It has up to 40x the antioxidants of blueberries and a rich source of magnesium and calcium. It is also a powerful tool to go deeper into meditation and opening your pure heart energy.
On our journey we will begin by coming together for a Cacao Ceremony which will open the heart and prepare the mind for meditation. There Therese will play her crystal singing bowls. Each bowl is immersed with loving intention to gently transition participants from their normal waking state to a highly relaxed state of consciousness. While Therese is playing the bowls, Sophia will come around and give each person a mini Reiki treatment.
In this relaxed state, a person's innate healing abilities are able to work more effectively to bring the body back to optimal health and wellness.

Reiki is a Japanese hands on healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is based off the principle that our bodies are kept alive with a life force energy, and when our energy is low or disrupted we are more likely to feel sick and prone to disease, and when its fully flowing we feel healthy and happy. Our life force is responsive to our thoughts and feelings. When we consciously or unconsciously accept a negative thought, it has an effect. These negative thoughts and feelings can become attached to our energy field and cause a disruption in our flow of energy which then diminishes the vital functions of the organs and cells in the physical body.
Reiki is guided by Higher Intelligence so it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to these blocks. It can work directly in the unconscious parts of the body and mind, which contains these negative energy inhibitors and eliminate them. As Reiki flows through the body it can help break these up allowing for a healthy flow of energy again. As this happens, energy can reach unhealthy tissue and properly nourish them once more.
The Level I attunement opens your chakra system and your palms so that you may energetically connect with the Reiki healing energies from the Universe and transmit them for healing to you or another person's physical body using your hands.
Reiki Level II increases the power and focus of "hands on healing." The First Degree primarily works on the healing of the physical body while the Second Degree increases the practitioners ability to now work with the emotional and mental levels of healing both for themselves and others. Second Degree Reiki enables the practitioner to address a wider variety of problems encountered by the practitioner and also by their clients.
The Reiki II Attunement increases the amount of energy available to the practitioner and receiver. Methods and tools are added to do distance healing. The Reiki symbols that are already in the practitioner's aura are now introduced and used consciously. These symbols are the Power Symbol, the Emotional/Mental symbol and the Distance Symbol.
