An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony.

In our Mystic Heart ♥ Sacred Cacao Ceremonies we use pure rainforest grown cacao as a ceremonial medicine to assist in opening the heart and spirit. A strong medicinal Mayan-inspired brew of cacao, along with divinely inspired live music, guided meditation, purification rituals, anointing with blessed oils, healing touch, energy attunements, and inspired movement, to create a uniquely profound ceremonial experience.

A cacao ceremony provides a perfect opportunity to take time away from our daily grind… to de-stress and reconnect. It is the perfect space to switch off from busy-ness and to journey into the sacred space within – opening ourselves to greater healing, balance, love, and spiritual connection. Whether you’re looking to shift an emotional blockage, let go of the past, gain clarity for your life path, or you simply need to lift your spirits, these ceremonies can provide the ideal experience.To learn more and for upcoming events, please visit our Facebook page -www.facebook.com/mysticheartsacredcacaotribeOur webpage - www.zahrahsita.com/mystic-heart-sacred-cacao-tribe Email - mystic.heart.sacred.arts@gmail.com Health And Yogan Copper Tongue cleaners-12 pieces have 1 set left ... $12 each at feria or write tongue@puravidaconnections.com

Becca’s Mango Chutney…

Sweet Organic Mangoes and Manzanas Nacionales (Costa Rican Apples) make up the base of this delicious and complex condiment. The addition of Organic Indian Curry Powder, sweet onions, chile dulce, ginger, raisins, apple cider vinegar, organic cane sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon makes for a chutney you can eat straight from the jar. It’s a perfect condiment for any Indian dishes (vegetarian or meat curries especially), a glaze for meat, tofu, or vegetables, and according to one of my customers, it also makes a great vanilla ice cream topping! Definitely something to try if you’d like to brighten up your meal! 100% AWESOME y siempre hecho con amor!
