United Kingdom·April - July
Full Moon Cacao/Breath Whitby
Personal GrowthVIEW DATES
Come with us on this breathwork and sacred plant journey to experience a truly deep healing just outside Whitby. Working with the full moon, Cacao (the great heart opener) and the power of our natural breath- we will go on a meditative journey you will not forget. Our full moon ceremonies take place deep in nature in the evening. We gather on the moors, in the woods or on the coast. We will be fully connecting with the elements. We do not announce the location until a few days before. Setting intentions is a powerful way to release your desires to the universe. The cycle of the moon is a powerful tool for intentional living. When the moon is full, it holds promise and light, illuminating what was once dark. This is the perfect time to let go of what no longer serves you, and set intentions for the month to come. The full moon is a time of culmination and fruition. In the days before the full moon arrives, our energy builds and we collect information and we have forward-moving energy and momentum that's great for building things, working toward a goal, or bringing the first phases of a project to fruition. Once the full moon arrives, the decreasing moon phase begins. As the moon wanes and the light starts to dwindle, we can begin to release what's no longer working for us. It's a great time to reflect on what you've been doing or building during the previous phase while shedding anything that doesn't feel right. As the moon loses light, we can tie up any loose ends and say goodbye to what's not serving our own highest We will take a short moderate walk to the site. We will gather around the fire. I will give you an overview of the indigenous history and show you how to prepare ceremonially and also to honour and enjoy the cacao. We will then take you on a guided meditation with breathwork and intention, to help you to level up in your life. You will leave this experience feeling like you are ready for the next part of your path. You will feel energized and grounded. You will have a deeper understanding of yourself, cacao, meditation, and breathwork and how it can help you in your life.
Humans have been living by lunar cycles for centuries, and in our modern world, connecting to these energies can give us a sense of grounding and synergy with the earth and cosmos.
Inner and outer healing
Full moon meditations are a powerful way to tap the luminous lunar energy and harness the energetic power of the moon's light. Release what's no longer serving you
To help you in your wellbeing journey we have a team to offer assistance and knowledge while you’re here.
Danny has been facilitating, hosting and leading breathwork and cacao ceremonies for the last few years. He will lead you gently and safely into a place of healing and rejuvenation.
Sam has been studying ancient breathwork techniques for sometime and more recently has been guiding breathwork sessions for customers in the sauna. He also plays the handpans, which is the perfect accompaniment to the breath hold.
Each session we invite a special guest who will lead a part of the ceremony. This activity may include sound healing, journalling, meditation, breathwork, chanting, chi gong, yoga or another other type of self care activity.
Have a look at the schedule below!
Park then Brief walk
You will be sent location details a few days before. Parking is just outside Whitby. We then walk to the ceremony site. The walk is of low/moderate demand. We arrive at our destination giving us great views of the full moon. The moon rises as we start our ceremony. Please bring head torch or torch.
We open the sacred space with a cleansing (or smudging) ceremony. A smudging ceremony is the ritual of burning plant resins and herbs while intentions and prayers are called forth. Many cultures have used the power of smoke to cleanse and say prayers. Native American and Indigenous cultures have practiced smudging rituals to clear away negative energy, to invite in peace and harmony for individuals or environments.
You are served cacao with love honour respect and intention. You are then guided on a Cacao invocation meditation. Under the moon energy we manifest our perfect life and highest path.
You are then guided on a breathwork session. We will start gently and incrementally take you on a breath journey, working synergistically with the Cacao medicine, music and the energy of the moon. The body cells are filled with the healing air and we heal.
We then come back into our bodies nice and gently and enjoy sustenance around the fire with a lovely veggie dish. You will leave this experienced energized and grounded. You will have a great understanding of yourself, cacao, meditation, and breathwork and how it can help you in your life.
Coming back into our bodies and fully grounding you are served nourishing veggie soup. We chat and share our experiences before walking back to the car park.
100% raw cacao
What's Not Included
Full Moon Ceremony with cacao and breathwork.
Come with us on this sacred plant journey to experience a truly deep healing.
The venues are always beautiful, raw and deep in nature.
We move the venues each month to protect the environment and to get away from any distractions.
You will be fully immersed in nature and the elements and if the clouds are clear we will see the moon rise and traverse across the sky
Wrap up warm!
You will be quite still during breathwork, so cold can set in. So bring coats and blankets! It is better to be too warm than too cold.
Eat light beforehand
It is good to keep food intake to a minimum before having your cacao and doing breathwork.
Bring a torch or head torch
Depending on the time of year it can be dark. So please bring a torch or similar.
Bring a backpack to put all your gear in so that your hands are free!
Yoga matt, cushion or blanket
Yoga matt, blanket or cushion just for comfort. We are often on ground that is already naturally comfy (sand, leaves, woodland!) but sometimes there is the odd stone or stick!
Is your cacao “fair trade”?
Our Cacao comes from a farmers co-operative in Peru. We actually go a step beyond fair trade, and develop direct trade relationships with family farms and collectives.
What makes cacao “ceremonial”?
We consider it “ceremonial grade” if it comes from a family farm, it’s roasted over an actual wood fire, and it’s grown and produced with the intention for it to be a soul medicine to the world. The farming families have a ceremony when they plant the seeds, grow the medicine and also when they harvest it.
What is breathwork?
Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises or techniques. People often perform them to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern.
There are many forms of breathwork therapy that involve breathing in a conscious and systematic way. Many people find breathwork promotes deep relaxation or leaves them feeling energized.
