New Paradigm Party: Cacao, Consent & Conscious Celebration

NEW-PARADIGM-PARTY-3-30-2019-v2.jpg

NEW PARADIGM PARTY RETURNS AFTER SOLD-OUT EVENTS IN NOVEMBER AND JANUARY... THIS TIME IN A BIGGER VENUE: THE MAIN BALLROOM AT OMNI COMMONS! Register now at https://newparadigmparty0330.eventbrite.com

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. This will be our longest event yet, and the first time on a Saturday! We're envisioning something closer to a one-day festival.

Through an afternoon of workshops with skilled Bay Area facilitators, and a free-flowing nighttime party, we will navigate how conscious celebration can be both juicy 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 consciously. We'll be unfolding and evolving what it even means to gather for fun and connection. The whole journey will be curated and facilitated by skilled transformational guides.

An experienced support team 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.

Dj Dakini and Bosque will be our DJs providing the sonic landscape. Crystallin Dillon, MA will lead a T-Group intro workshop – "a mindfulness practice that you do in relationship." Blake Zealear (of Zentropy Coaching) will return to lead a connection games workshop for practice giving and receiving safe, platonic touch. And Vitali Kononov will join us to lead a Contact Improv/dancefloor consent workshop. More information about all of this to come in the Facilitator section below. (All details subject to change.) ☆

A NOTE ON CACAO:

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 bit.ly/soulliftcacao.

*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.
