SACRED CACAO CEREMONY
The next ceremonies are Saturday, December 1st, 2-4pm & Wednesday, December 5th, 7-9pm at Vali Soul Sanctuary, 6717 Valmont Rd, Boulder, Colorado.
By connecting to love and gratitude, and aligning our consciousness with our higher self, we can tap into the organic flow of life and receive divine inner guidance. We’ll open space for our cacao ceremony where you will be guided to connect to your higher self, your desired intentions, and the spirit of cacao. You’ll receive delicious raw cacao from Peru and we’ll share music together, drumming and chanting.
Our ceremony will begin with an introduction about the sprit world, the heart-opening effects of the sacred cacao plant. In a guided meditation, accompanied by shamanic drumming and chanting, everyone will be encouraged to connect with their higher selves, the Earth, and what they desire to manifest in their lives. Our delicious raw cacao love potion will then be shared, and participants can experience opening their subtle energy fields to receive inner guidance and experience higher states of awareness, a renewed sense of happiness, and inner peace.
During the second part of our ceremony, we will lead everyone in a guided Sufi dance, spinning ourselves and creating a vortex of energy, will connect us with source energy as we bring magic and manifestation into our own space. We will also perform guided ancient movements. The sacred movements are simple and help us honor and release the old, reconcile duality into oneness, which flows into a visualization of actively stepping through our own doorway into the New. Finally, participants will be invited to share their experiences, and we will close the ceremony in the spirit of love and gratitude.
Our Sacred Cacao Ceremony establishes our connection with the healing spirit of the cacao plant. Through meditation and prayer we open to receiving spiritual guidance and possibility of healing. By surrendering into the experience of the Ceremony, you are able to experience a new level of ease within your very own being and all the doors open before you as you align your consciousness with the higher purpose.

What is ECSTATIC DANCE
“let your soul dance”
Ecstatic Dance was born out of love for the sun, dance and nature. Dance is a beautiful way to celebrate life, cultivate community and connect with pure joy. The intention of Ecstatic Dance is to create a sacred space for people to dance freely and experience pure joy.
Ecstatic Dance began as outside activity in nature dancing in the sun. Dancers’ hearts opened while they experienced a deeper connection to mother earth, the trees and the sun.
Dance is a social experience for anyone who likes to dance to joyful and inspiring music in a safe environment. It is a welcoming space for people to pray and get in touch with their hearts desires. The tones are a blend of world drum beat and modern electronic music.
Q: What is the structure of the dance?
Ecstatic Dance in its most basic definition is free-form dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” of the dance. This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching! It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teacher. It’s about being present with your own energy and discovering your own dance.
No dance experience or partner is necessary. It’s a perfect outlet for those who think they “can’t dance” and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push the envelope. Ecstatic dance is easy. There is no wrong way to dance.
The experiences are an hour an half, starting with an opening circle where we introduce ourselves to each other and connect the energy of the group. Starting with a gentle warm-up, we begin to dance. We end the dance with some time in silence and then we come back together for a closing circle. At that point participants are free to share wisdom they may have gained, their experience or just sit in the beautiful energy of the group. We close giving thanks.
Some of the benefits if the ecstatic dance are incredible energy, excitement, aliveness and release of stuck patterns in your body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Q: What kind of music do you play?
The music is carefully selected to feel uplifting and inspiring. At the beginning and end the music is slow pace, harmonious and heart opening. After the first half an hour the music gradually gets more energetic. Some songs have primordial drum beat helping people ground and get out of the thinking mode. Our DJ’s play a wide spectrum of different genres from world music to get down electronic music.
Q: Who should come?
Ecstatic Dance is appropriate for those of any age, gender and lifestyle who like music and want to have fun.
"Your events are transformational." Jeff
"Boulder's Ecstatic Dance is my monthly reset. Simona creates a joyful and powerful space where it's easy to just let go and dance! Every time I leave the dance, I do so with peace in my heart and joy for my next step in life." Almina Hodek
"Dancing to Simona's musical guidance is like tapping into the mystical vortex of pure energy and truth. Her musical choices create a personal journey through the deep complexities & challenges of being human." CJ
"It's so great in here on the dance floor, I'm inhaling it so I can take it with me." Noah
"I've always loved to dance, but I never before experienced it as a pure "organic-spirit-body" active mediation. Once I let go into pure unselfconscious movement, it became a dance with the Divine Mother. Your 'super-juicy' choices in music and rhythm changes guided my energy-psyche flow. Your music feels expansive, rich and deep. The evening of Ecstatic Dance was fantastic, I'll be back." Jeff
