Marianna is a shamanic practitioner and yoga teacher with experience in holding space for classes, workshops and ceremonies. She has immersed herself in deep inner work with the cacao and other plant teachers for about five years. Her travels to South America where she intensively worked with plant medicines have provided her with a deep understanding on holding ceremonial space for healing.
In 2018, she graduated from Gayatri yoga school as a 200hr Yoga teacher and is registered with Yoga alliance professionals UK. In her work she combines ancient practices from different spiritual traditions to guide and empower whoever feels drawn to her offerings.
Cacao, also known as food of the gods has been used in sacred ceremonies in the Americas for thousands of years. It aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are or release old patterns and traumas. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.
Cacao provides the space for connecting with oneself and promotes deep opening and complete relaxation. It has a strong effect on the circulatory system and high amounts of magnesium which helps in releasing any muscular tension. It contains many compounds which stimulate the nervous system and open the individual to healing.
The ceremonial drink we will receive contains raw organic cacao paste, spices, herbs and agave syrup. The cacao paste is sourced from the Ashinanka tribes in Peru.
The ceremony is an opportunity to embark on a gentle inner journey that will align and balance our physical and energetic bodies I invite you to join us in the process of letting go what no longer serves us and embracing a new found sense of balance and peace.
A unique combination of ceremonial cacao with breathwork, yogic practices, meditation and shamanic sound journeying. Active meditation will lead us towards letting go and moving into stillness. Shamanic sound journeying, sound healing and meditation will gently guide us further inwards where our intentions can begin to take form in the unconscious mind. The rest is a mysterious surprise.
