BS Free Spirituality & Soul Lift Cacao founder Nick Meador will lead two workshops on his own and co-host a third at Lucidity Festival 2018! We've heard amazing things about this gathering in Santa Barbara, California. We can't wait to experience it for ourselves.
Here are Nick's workshops:
SOUL LIFT CACAO CEREMONY, SACRED FIRE, 8:30-10:00 PM, FRIDAY, APRIL 6
In this sacred circle, Nick Meador will serve the gentle plant medicine cacao, grown organically in eastern Guatemala at a farm he visited personally. Pure cacao can open the heart; deepen meditative experiences; boost insights, focus, and motivation; and foster inner/outer connection.
Nick leads an opening circle to share intentions and create a supportive container. Then Nick takes you on an intuitive flow that can include meditation, breathwork, connection exercises, guided movement, and more.
After the holistic experience for body, mind, and spirit, we regroup for discussion and integration. You’ll likely leave with a calm sense of euphoria, more connection to something bigger than yourself, and a readiness to step further on the path of your destiny.
*Cacao consumption is optional at this workshop. It is not advised for people taking pharmaceutical anti-depressants or people with a heart condition to have a full serving of cacao.*
EMBODIED NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION, ALTAR OF FIRE, 5:00-6:30 PM, SUNDAY, APRIL 8
In this cutting-edge experiential workshop, facilitator Nick Meador presents an interpretive application of Marshall Rosenberg’s popular Nonviolent Communication paradigm.
In NVC we focus on the feelings that arise depending on whether or not our needs are met. Nick has found that bringing in awareness of body sensations (the other kind of “feelings”) and fluency in nonverbal communication can further boost our interpersonal effectiveness.
Nick will give you a basic overview about taking responsibility for your own experience and making “I” statements. Then he’ll guide you on an eye-opening journey of boundaries, assertiveness, fear-facing, “reading” people’s gestures, and using body sensation to inform your actions.
After tapping into your core intuition, you’ll leave with an empowered mindset that helps you meet your needs and live a more fulfilling life.
CACAO CEREMONY COLLABORATION WITH ALOK ANANDA, SACRED FIRE, 8:30-10:00 PM, SUNDAY, APRIL 8
