About the event

Join Sarah Zelman and Lisa Gotwals for an immersive Experience :

"Blooming Heart" : The Cultural Roots of Cacao Ceremony + Heart Opening Sound Journey 

Come together in circle to learn about the rich historical roots of the Cacao Ceremony from Medicine Woman, Lisa Gotwals.  We will sip, chat and ground in this beautiful gathering.  Lisa will also share her voice in song while Sarah Zelman begins to invite the sounds and vibrations in through her various instrumentals.  The evening will conclude with a heart opening Sound Journey and light conversation.  

Whether or not this is your first time experiencing Cacao Ceremony or  Sound as Meditation, we invite you open your hearts and minds the new ideas and cultural backgrounds from which the rich history of these two unique offerings derive from.  

We will have props on-site but feel free to personalize your experience with your yoga mat, blanket, pillow, eye masks, crystals, journal writing, or anything else to support you in your movement and sound journey.


The vibrations from sound healing instruments are known to assist our bodies with restoring itself to its inherent harmonic state. Sound baths are an opportunity for you to unplug, relax and immerse yourself in a deeply meditative journey.  A welcoming, cozy and safe space will be created for you to  surrender to the experience and allow the sounds to take you wherever your mind, body and soul desires.

• Promotes deep relaxation
