About this Workshop
In this workshop, Alexis will guide you into a powerful cacao ceremony followed by soul-freeing ecstatic dancing.
Cacao is a strong plant medicine with many benefits for people who open themselves up to try it. Cacao ceremonies are a way of shamanic healing used to release emotional blockages, open our hearts and connect with ourselves. According to Mayan beliefs, cacao is one of the components used to create the human race. Mayan gods bled onto the cacao pods and gifted cacao to humanity.
Ecstatic dance is a form of self-expression where dancers surrender to the rhythm and reach a state of ecstatic feelings. Dancers are free to move however they feel like. There is no choreography they have to follow. It is a form of meditation that helps people with stress and other negative emotions. Mind, body and the spirit can benefit from this practice. Throughout history, ecstatic dance has had many meanings to different communities. Societies used ecstatic dance as a vessel of ‘’worship, celebration, story-telling and myth-making’. Ecstatic dance can lead to a trance state.
Join Alexis in this workshop to experience this transforming journey along with the Innercamp family.
