Xocolatl Skin Care Workshop
“There is a piece of flesh in the body that if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt, and that is the heart.”
-An authentic hadeeth, Prophet Muhammad
Love. Nourish. Pamper. Your Heart. This February.
We have partnered with our community herbalist and Global Kundalini Teacher Julie Evans to bring you the most luxurious “heart-centered” workshop using power food cacao and real chocolates.
When: February 11, 2023
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
In traditional Chinese medicine, the Heart Center is the Supreme Controller, the Emperor, the place of one-ness. Whether we admit it or not, our heart steers us through life – our feelings, our passions, decisions, the people we feel connected with. Memories are important because they trigger emotions, and we experience longing, melancholy, joy, excitement with our hearts just a nanosecond before our mind starts to operate.
This 2-hour Xocolatl Workshop – Xocolatl is how the Mayans called ancient cacao – is divided into three nourishing areas with only twelve attendees allowed:
Breath Work and Opening Up of the Heart
Before we begin to create chocolate magic for our face and body we will drink the finest ingredient: single estate, pure cacao from Co. We will tune into the spirit of this plant, the fine cacao beans, which are bursting full of magnesium. This will elevate the heart center, evoking passion and promoting self-love and worth. We will sip the drink from the seed and begin meditation or breath work for the heart center. Energetically opening up the heart will allow elevated energy move into this sacred muscle of our body. We will feel more present as happy hormones trickle into our brains and we feel connected. It also stimulates our immune system and best of all, this practice turns on creativity.
