Vanderbilt, MI – Nick Meador and Ashtar Kukuk have announced they will co-host the first ever Transformation Retreat: Cacao, Meditation and Movement Therapy the weekend of June 24-26 in the domes at Song of the Morning yoga retreat center in northern Michigan. It promises to be an in-depth weekend of personal growth and change through the use of the ancient and ceremonial plant medicine cacao, active meditation techniques, Inner Waymark process facilitation, and Divine Vitality practices of yoga, visionary dance and movement therapy.
About Cacao and Ceremony Use
Raw cacao is a powerful facilitator for personal transformation. It is heart-opening in the sense that it increases blood flow and oxygen levels in the heart. It also amplifies emotions and subconscious content so that we can work with it productively. The hosts will serve world-class Mayan cacao, grown and prepared in northern Guatemala specifically for meditative and ceremonial use.
