We partnered with the Cacao Club to host a Cacao Ceremony and a lunar circle for the renowned auction house Phillips in london.
Surrounded by the finest selection of contemporary art, we held the space to attract the blissful energy of the full strawberry moon in Sagittarius, while offering to the participants an exclusive preview of Phillips latest aquisitions, unveiled to the public only the following days during london Auction Week. As Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance, we asked We Are Vegan Everything to create a food altar, spiced up by the tumeric bliss of Wunder Workshop‘s Golden Mylk blends and spicy teas. The fair trade cacao company Cacao Club guided us in a meditative inner journey aimed to rebalance the energies, grounding and restore good health. Oracle and crystal readings added an esoteric twist to the magical event. Drawning from ancient rituals of Central and South America, the Cacao Club adapted the shamanic healing around cacao to cure Westerners’ hectic city life. The small company produces locally ceremonial cacao infused with medicinal herbs from Avicenna, an organic herb field in West Wales for professional practitioners and therapists. The organic, traditionally grown and ethically sourced ingredients have been minimally processed to meet the high standards of ceremonial grade cacao. Unlike some of the other shamanic experiences, cacao ceremonies don’t have hallucinogenic or “out of body” effects but help nourish the physical body and the spirit by creating deep and meaningful bonds between the individuals that take part in the circle.
