An evening of yin movement, meditation, and ancestral connection through libations, shared storytelling, and poetry.
Join us for an in-person intentional evening of yin movement, meditation, and ancestral connection through libations, shared storytelling, and poetry. There will also be offerings of a community altar, cacao medicine, and energy cleansing. Cacao, traditional to many cultures in Central & South America, is a venerated plant also known as “The Food of the Gods” by indigenous Mayan and Aztec cultures. In ancient texts and modern research, cacao contains medicinal properties that help to open the heart. The elixir will be prepared with dairy-free milk & coconut sugar. This is a space for Us by US where we can come with our gifts of song and poetry, and collectively share in grief and joy as we honor ourselves and our ancestors. Come as you are!
