Cacao ceremony for winter solstice hosted by Cambridge chocolatier
With the winter solstice – the year’s shortest day – due on Monday (December 21), Gloria Dominguez – aka Mama Bombon – has created a cacao ceremony with participants from three continents already booked in.
The ceremony from the renowned Cambridge chocolatier involves the use of cacao’s “all-powerful medicinal psychoactive components” as part of a “sound alchemy breathing exercise to cease and clear stagnant energy and welcome new intentions”.
The event is free, though you will need some Bali cacao “to support the women’s community and young farmers in west Bali” before you can obtain the access link.
Once in, you can expect Gloria’s signature “blending cacao, science and spirituality” ethos to surface, which includes the use of ‘Jaguar medicine’ – “It’s my spirit animal, and a very powerful way of the healing which the Mayans used to perform their rituals”, she explains.
“I will be talking about what is going on in the universe, the transition to New Earth and 5D,” she says. “We will be doing activations using sacred geometry and using cacao medicine to release what no longer serves us.
“I will be calling the four elements and waking up the magician inside of us – using the archetype in our everyday life to manifest and ask: ‘What do we want?’”
The conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, known as the Christmas Star, also takes place on December 21. The two planets were last visibly conjunct in 1226. For astrologers, this rare conjunction takes place in the sign of Aquarius, and has been interpreted as a demonstration of the transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. So will this year’s cacao ceremony be celebrating the incoming Age of Aquarius?
“You don’t have to wait long to find out,” says Gloria enigmatically.
