Join us for Songs of Gratitude: Cacao Ceremony and Sound Bath, a Celebration of Graditude, at Maui Yoga Shala.

I am thrilled to be co-creating this evening for you with the amazing Musician and Sound Healer, Eric Vaughan.

We will begin with in a Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony and commune with Ceremonial Cacao, prepared with loving prayer and a blend of Mayan Spices. Cacao opens the heart and induces feelings of easeful euphoria. During Ceremony Sage will lead a participatory gratitude practice and prayers.

Following Ceremony, I will guide a healing meditation, while Eric’s Sound Journey opens your being into states of deep relaxation and surrender. You will emerge Heart-Open and at peace, an Embodiment of Gratitude and Joy.
