New Moon Group Energy Healing with Cacao

  • The Green Yogi 1642 Martin Luther King Jr Way Berkeley, CA (map)

This is a community ceremony to usher us into the Gemini New Moon occurring the following day (at 3:20am on Monday, June 3rd).

The Gemini archetype represents communication, cooperation, friendship, networking, transportation, synergistic partnerships and kindred spirits. Harmony of thinking and feeling is an emotional theme to meditate on during this time.

The collective questions coming up may be along the lines of:

• How are we communicating to ourselves and others?
• How can we upgrade our technology & transportation to better suit our needs for growth?
• Is mutual support present in our relationships?
• How are we paying it forward and engaging with our human social networks?

In this community energy healing with cacao, we will begin with a cacao drinking ritual facilitated by Nick Meador of Soul Lift Cacao. Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection.

Cacao’s nutritional profile contains:
• A high amount of antioxidants
• Iron, providing increased blood oxygenation
• Magnesium, providing relief of muscle tension
• All the healthy cacao butter left in (unlike processed cacao powder)

Cacao’s spiritual and emotional benefits include:
• Heightened focus and motivation without crash or cravings
• Gentle mood boost from anandamide, aka the Bliss Molecule
• Heart chakra opening for self-love, compassion, and forgiveness
• Aphrodisiac effects
• Greater connection with your body and spirit

Following the cacao ritual, Katerina Kan will conduct a group energy healing using the Theta Healing modality. This energy healing modality is a process of belief system reconstruction, based on the collective themes present in the group mind. Bringing conscious intent to the theta brainwave can facilitate actual transformation of our innermost thoughts and programs that run our mind - also known as our belief systems, or mindsets. Doing this as a group is particularly illuminating, in the sense that we discover how much we have in common and how interconnected our stories, struggles and desires are.

Katerina will ask attendees to share briefly their intentions and challenges heading into the new moon energy, and do belief system reconstruction work on the group mind to provide attendees with affirmations that will help them dissolve challenges and advance toward their intentions.

Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection. With his social enterprise Soul Lift Cacao, Nick serves cacao grown organically at a family farm in eastern Guatemala, prepared by a women's collective at Lake Atitlán that he met personally, and obtained through ethical direct trade WITH FULL PERMISSION AND CONSENT TO SHARE IT IN THIS WAY. When Soul Lift Cacao buys from the women's collective, 100% of profits from that sale go back to the Mayan indigenous people growing and preparing the cacao. By giving back and showing respect, we honor the sacred role that cacao has played for thousands of years in the indigenous cultures of what we now call Central and South America. We are so fortunate that ceremonial cacao is entering the global consciousness at a time when it can have a massively positive impact. For more info visit

*Cacao consumption is optional at this event. It is not advised for people taking MAOI anti-depressants or people with a heart condition to have a full serving of pure cacao.
