About the event

The heart’s electromagnetic field is 5000 times stronger that of the brain’s. The heart’s energy is said to reach 3 feet outside of the physical body, and can be detected in another person sitting nearby! Heart-brain coherence is when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment, and this state lends itself to emotional maturity and regulation.

Our ability to get in touch with the heart and regulate our emotions has a direct impact on our quality of life, but unfortunately we’ve been led away from the heart. It’s time to return home, to the lotus deep within the heart, to see who you really are - pure, radiating love.

Join us for a heart centered afternoon where you’ll be invited to come back home to yourself. We’ll use the medicine of cacao - sourced directly from the hidden valleys of Cusco, Peru, and farmed by indigenous family farmers who have been working with this medicine for generations. Cacao in its raw form is helpful for amplifying signals sent between the brain and the body, creating an open pathway to connecting deeper with one’s heart and others when held in a sacred space of intention. It is also packed with tons of vital minerals that support our body’s capacity to function from a space of nourishment and wholeness. One of the main chemicals activated while working with cacao is Anandmide, also known as the bliss molecule - enhancing feelings of ecstasy in the mind and body. Ally will lead a sacred cacao ceremony as we sit in circle, create a collective altar and connect.

After we set our intentions in ceremony, Haley will lead a breathwork session and healing circle specifically curated to elevate heart intelligence - connecting the devotional energy of the heart to the intensity of the third eye - activating and igniting a powerful energetic shift - aligning you to the highest vibration - to that of love. Tantric breathwork, kriya and group healing work will be shared.

After breathwork, Melodie will lead a deeply restorative sound healing journey. Melodie has created a sound bath experience that is unique, using a combination of reiki, hypnosis and healing instruments to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to create tranquility, peace and a great sense of self love and acceptance. When the reiki-infused sound waves wash over you, they trigger a response in our bodies that converts those waves into electrical signals into the auditory cortex. Listening to music floods our brains with dopamine and oxytocin. This can help to relax the body, reduce anxiety and improve creativity.

We will close the day with an integration circle where we can come together again to share and connect with open hearts. You’ll leave feeling held, seen and radiating true love.
