About this Event

Fire In the Heart~ A Movement Medicine & Cacao Ceremony

( Guernsey UK )

With Bonnie McAteer

This workshop is an Invitation into the Transformative Power of Dance and Movement Medicine Ritual.

At this time of Imbolc we come together to tend to the Fire in our hearts as the light returns.

We come to Dance in the Potent Medicine of this work. Within Ceremonial space we are consciously inviting and giving space to our dreaming as we begin bridging our inner and outer worlds.

The darkness is making way for the light, a good time to slow down and turn inwards.

Taking time to come home to ourselves and plant intentions and seeds that will germinate durning the coming months.

This is an invitation to connect deeply within through Dance, Cacao, Voice and Sound, Gong Bath and open up to the wider web of life that we are connected to and the great Mystery at the Centre of it all.

Cacao is 'The Food for the Shift'. An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people's hearts and return us all to harmony.

Ceremonial grade cacao is a sacred medicine also known as the “blood of the heart” is an important, powerful, and previously overlooked teacher, facilitator, and medicine-plant. Ceremonial Cacao partners with you on your journey... experience chocolate as the magical partner it is!

The Cacao Spirit ‘returns’ – from a long history with Indigenous peoples.


Literally translated as ‘Food of the Gods’,

Since the ancient Civilisations 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.

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.

The cacao we will use is of the highest quality grown & harvested in Peru specifically for ceremonial use by Ashaninka families. Directly sourced from ancient Cacao gardens in the Rio Ene region.

Please note: Many antidepressants do NOT mix with the tryptophan and MAO (Monoamine Oxidase) Inhibitors in this cacao… ��Google your medication!
