Shamanigans.Live Presents…



Embodiment.  Ritual.  Dance

   Ceremony is the doorway, cacao opens the heart, dance is the prayer in motion…

Combining the playful with the sacred, you are invited to shimmy, stomp, laugh and release all that doesn’t serve you through the alchemical combination of the Sacred Cacao Drink and the conscious movement practice that is the 5 Elements Dance.

Let us come together to drop inhibitions and tune into our own place of creativity and self-expression, to be healed by the power of music and how it moves us, to find union within ourselves and with others!
Connecting mind, body and spirit, allowing more trust for the instinctive natural healing processes available to us within the body if we can just let go and allow.

This is your invitation to let go of beliefs or habits that don’t serve you, making space in your heart, mind, and body for all that you wish to cultivate in your life, calling in your dreams and desires.

You will leave the space feeling activated, energized, empowered and inspired to break out of the old and trust and surrender to the new.


What is Cacao?

Literally translated as ‘Food of the Gods’, Cacao is one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods and provides many medicinal benefits.

It contains more antioxidants than any other food on the planet.

It stimulates the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and anandamide (also known as the bliss chemical) leading to feelings of euphoria.

It relaxes the muscles and balances the nervous system whilst focusing the mind and activating the heart.

Since the ancient civilizations of the Mayans and Aztecs, cacao has been used in rituals and ceremonies as a tool for journeying deep inside of the self, allowing spirit to move through and guide us.

The cacao we will use is of the highest quality made in Guatemala or Peru specifically for ceremonial use.  
Enjoy it along with several other sacred plant medicines/superfoods for balancing the chakras and associated organs.

Let us come together to be blessed by the divine nectar of this sacred plant medicine.

May we dare to dance freely to manifest our prayers.
