Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy presents Cacao Ceremony 2019

Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy presents… A traditional meditative Cacao Ceremony with @Gabi Moriarty!☕️

So, What is a Cacao Ceremony?

A Cacao ceremony is a healing ritual that facilitates interpersonal communication and connectedness. Cacao is often used for a change of perspective, enabling you to recognise and release patterns or habits that no longer serve, while calling in what does. Cacao also gives you a burst of energy that helps you focus and improve your memory, and is said to enhance creativity and facilitate inner meditation and connection.

Cacao ceremonies these days vary depending on who, what, where, and why someone is hosting it. Some facilitators approach the medicine with sharing and talk therapy, some set intentions and take turns to express what is going on in their lives, some shamans do group praying or chanting.

About Gabriela:
Gabriela Moriarty, who will be leading this cacao ceremony learned the 5 Element Dance from her mentor Daisy Kaye, whose whispers still encourage her to share and spread this meditation in the community here in Bangkok. So come join us to get elevated on chocolate, get connected to the five elements while moving in the direction of embodiment- yes we will set intentions, but We won’t spiritualise things too much. Come join, meet new people, move around to good music, a bit of eye-to-eye, and self-expression.

Gabriela Moriarty is a long-time Lyrical Lunatic, she was one of the founding poets who helped to plant the Spoken Word Poetry seed in Bangkok since we first began organising 6 years ago. She is currently studying Art Therapy and feels compelled to share her practice of dancing in a meditative, connected way while cacao is flowing through the body opening up the heart.

* A heart opening and connection
