New Paradigm Party

  • East Bay Community Space 507 55th Street Oakland, CA, 94609 United States (map)

Join us for a cacao-infused, fully immersive experience where we'll explore the cutting edge of humanity’s social evolution through New Paradigm Partying.

Interweaving a multi-dimensional flow that will be part workshop and part dance, we will navigate how a celebration can be both transcendent and grounded, sexy and safe, spontaneously fun and sustainably transformative.

Think of it like a party that's also a workshop on HOW TO PARTY in this day and age – with a more attention on factors like consent and the strength of the container. We are re-envisioning what it even means to gather for fun and connection.

The whole journey will be curated and facilitated by skilled transformational guides. An experienced team of support angels will be available in case something comes up that you want or need help with.

There will also be a tea lounge open and available to talk with others, stretch, cuddle, or simply BE.

☆ Featuring a headline set by DJ Maya Light ☆

Entry includes a cup of ceremonial cacao! 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.
