Growth from the Darkness of the New Moon: Embark on a Personal Development Journey with New Moon Ceremonies
Embark on a Transformative Journey with the New Moon, Breathwork and the Sacred Energy of Cacao, Just a Few Miles from Whitby.VIEW DATES
Beneath the invisible New Moon, the art of intention-setting unfolds. The moon's subtle energy helps us delve into our ambitions and aspirations. We plant seeds for the future plans and identify what might be stopping us being the highest version of ourselves. We welcome a new month teeming with unexplored potential. Join us as we embark on this transformative journey, guided by Mamma Cacao, the breath and the New Moon Energy. Step into a realm of renewal and growth. Our ceremonies take place among the moors, woods, rivers, standing stones, valleys or by the coast. This offers a profound elemental connection, where earth, air, water, and fire intertwine. We keep the locations secret until a few days before, these hidden gems are but a short drive from Whitby, promising an unforgettable adventure.
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
Moon rituals are a powerful way to tap the lunar energy and harness the energetic power of the moon. Making plans, prayers, blessings and offerings to grow and reach your highest path.
Your best life
By working with the moon's ever-shifting phases, we unlock the ability to craft strategic plans and manifest the most vibrant versions of our lives. We basically produce a plan each month to get you where you need to be.
To help you in your wellbeing journey we have a team to offer assistance and knowledge while you’re here.
Meet Danny – a bundle of enthusiasm and passion! Over the past few years, he has immersed himself in the art of guiding, facilitating, and hosting transformative breathwork and Cacao ceremonies. With a compassionate approach, Danny skillfully navigates the journey, gently guiding you towards a realm of healing and renewal.
Introducing Sam – a devoted student of ancient breathwork techniques, whose journey has led to the art of guiding transformative breathwork sessions. With a background rooted in studying these time-honored practices, Sam's expertise has evolved into skillfully facilitating breathwork sessions. A harmonious blend of talents, Sam is not only well-versed in the breathwork realm but also gifted in the melodic world of handpans, didgeredoo, guitar and even the Sitar. The rhythmic sounds of his handpans provide a seamless backdrop to the breath-work experience.
For each session we invite a special guest who will lead a part of the ceremony. This activity may include coaching, sound healing, journalling, meditation, breathwork, chanting, chi gong, yoga or another other type of self care activity. The special guest is not guaranteed and so view it as an added bonus!
Have a look at the schedule below!
Park then Brief walk
You will be sent location details a few days before. We rotate locations to keep things interesting but usually just outside Whitby. We park and then walk to the ceremony site. The walk is of low/moderate demand. Please bring head torch or torch!
We open the sacred space with a cleansing (or smudging) ceremony followed by offerings. 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. The Cacao is more than just a beverage; it's a conduit for connecting with the heart and spirit. As you sip the Cacao, you embark on a journey guided by a Cacao invocation meditation. This meditation is a powerful practice that helps you enter a state of heightened awareness, inviting you to connect with the spirit of the cacao, your inner self, and the energies of the moon. 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 new energy and we go through a process of release and renewal - gaining clarity, energy and revitalisation.
We then come back into our bodies nice. You are guided on a gentle meditation to bring you back to earth. You will leave this experience 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.
Far away from the hustle of urban life, these sites are sanctuaries of serenity, inviting you to immerse yourself in the profound depths of nature.
With honour to the environment, we move our venues each month, ensuring that the land and its resources remain unblemished and rejuvenate naturally.
Our carefully selected locations possess unique qualities perfect for holding ceremonies that offer seclusion, nature's depth, and an indescribable yet palpable energy. Each site offers an immersive experience, allowing you to connect with the Earth, feel the whisper of the wind, hear the gentle murmur of water, and sense an elusive yet powerful aura that defies explanation. These spaces have been thoughtfully chosen to enhance the potency of your journey, enveloping you in an environment that nurtures introspection, intention, and transformation.
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.
