New Moon Cacao Journey, London


Take the opportunity to tune into your inner world, cleanse and stimulate your body and create the space for inspiration and clarity. Autumn is the quintessential season to illustrate the key features of transitions; Letting go.

Held in group energy, Jessica & Jack invite you to drink a ceremonial dose of cacao and allow its properties to gently open and awaken your mind, body and soul. 

Sharing tools such as Qi Gong, Kundalini Meditation, Breathwork and the Sound Resonance of the Gong, Shamanic Drum and Tibetan Singing Bowl you will experience deeper states of relaxation to facilitate connection, integration and healing. 

Join us on this gentle journey inwards to de-stress, let go of the urban distractions around us and facilitate a greater connection to your true self and your body through meditation, movement and sound.

ABOUT CACAO

Cacao, or what modern man might call, raw chocolate, was revered by the ancient civilisations of South and Central America and used as a health elixir, medicine and aphrodisiac. Nicknamed 'Heart blood' by the Aztecs, it was believed to have a powerful heart healing capacity, signifying life and fertility. 

Today, now labeled as a superfood, science has shown Cacao to have highly nutritious properties, countless vitamins and minerals such as magnesium (important for healthy blood pressure and heart function), a huge amount anti-oxidants (20x more than blueberries!) and anti-imflammatory properties. Studies show Cacao to benefit the heart and cardiovascular system as a whole and how it activates neurotransmitters in the brain that bring about the feelings of bliss, love, pleasure and motivation.

"The space Jack and Jess created is really special, very authentic and genuinely so beautiful. It has a very down to earth, warm energy that feels very "homeley" and peaceful, so the ideal combination for journeying with caceo! I feel it's a a rarity, especially in London where yoga is now the new craze and it seems increasingly hard to come across somewhere that reflects authenticity to come across this. I felt very safe. So, thank you" - Tasha Van Uden
