In the cosmos among the planets, Mother Earth aligns her chakras into a higher vibration.
This one-year transition process culminates on March 8th with a New Heart Chakra.
Life is a web of energy, and anything in it is deeply connected and inter-related. This retreat is designed to rejuvenate and recalibrate your energy whilst being in the heart of nature. Our days together will work in harmony to activate the invisible web of interconnectedness with nature. You are invited to adopt a visionary perspective, and broaden your inner dimension in loving kindness using the Spirit of Cacao as a heart-centered anchor. Through guided meditations, creative expression, and spending time with the elements of nature we will align with the rhythm of the earth & the cosmos. The new heart chakra of the earth will set the pace for our journey.
2017 carries the energy of a fresh start. What seeds do you want to plant and cultivate? What is the dream of your soul, and what is the dream of the planet? Enter the great cosmic dance to bring your dream into reality.
With the spiritual heart anchor of Cacao we will travel the energetic and planetary grids. We will grow deep roots, expand the inner space to open the universal space within.
Playful, creative expression is a central theme. We will move the body and spend time outside, exploring the beauty of the National Park. Writing, painting and artistic expression will help deepen your self-study.
What is the secret of Cacao? How does it grow in Nature, how does it cultivate relationships with other plants and what makes it so very special? We’ll journey to the Source to gain wonderful insights into the most complex food on Earth.
The elements of Nature and the Fire will support us actively with a chimney or a bonfire in the garden. Under the energy of a full moon we are invited to surrender whatever is not serving us anymore to the fire of transformation.
Cacao is nurturing and equally detoxifying for the physical body. A plant based diet and fresh juices/ smoothies will support this process. You will leave feeling healthier, lighter and renewed.
The mysterious realm where Heaven and Earth meet…in the Heart"
- David Wolfe
Cacao is a sacred plant medicine, a powerful facilitator and guide for inner work. Cacao teaches ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding and allows a deep connection with yourself and others. Cacao serves as an agent of worlds - a Rainbow Medicine. The Spirit of Cacao is pure joy; it calibrates the cells, activates deep interaction within and connects the dots. Cacao opens the gate to spiritual realms. We are invited to align with our heart, intuition, higher self and the Divine. Cacao balances the brain hemispheres, and the feminine & masculine dance within. A door-opener to the subtle energy bodies, it corrects the imbalance between the mind and the heart, allowing the heart to open fully to feel compassion, joy and unconditional love. Having been used traditionally as a sacred plant medicine to open the heart and enter spiritual realms, the Spirit of Cacao is a keeper of ancient, sacred wisdom.
The Cacao Retreat will take place in the stunningly beautiful Taubenblau in Brandenburg. We will be staying in the nature-rich Uckermark, embedded in the Unteres Odertal National Park. After 10 minutes of walking, the flora and fauna are almost untouched. The house has a fireplace both inside and outside:
Silent spaces for introspection, and plenty of space for walking. A demeter farm can be found in the village, in addition to a wild river with a view to Poland. Unteres Odertal National Park is Germany's only meadow national park and is one of the most species-rich habitats for many types of bird.
Taubenblau offers four bedrooms with double beds, one bedroom with two single beds on the first floor, one bedroom with a double bed and also a dormitory room with a skylight with four beds on the second floor. There is a bathroom complex on the first floor; with private showers, one bathtub, and toilet areas, easily accessible from all sleeping areas. We will also have access to a professional kitchen, a beautiful open dining area and the Taubenblau Seminar Room.
