Water Blessings: Song & Sound Ceremony:
Maggie Taurick is a yogini, designer, and carrier of sacred sound. She has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and is forever a student, constantly deepening her practice and exploring ways to integrate it further into her life. This exploration has led her to the unique combination of sound and cacao, which she became immersed in while living in Guatemala. With the help of these tools, she guides students to recognize the infinite wisdom and creativity within them; bringing more intention, freedom, and awareness to their daily lives.
These ceremonies will be presented by Maggie and Diana Egizi
Expand & Embody: Cacao & Sound Ritual
Dive into this potent weekend with a heart-expanding ceremonial cacao ritual to unite breath, body, and voice with our intentions and invite full embodiment of now-moment presence and authentic connection. Lovingly assisted by the spirit of cacao, we will ignite divine communion within and without through toning, mantra, and deep listening. As we traverse this mystical landscape of vibration, our co-created sound and prayer will create a powerful energetic temple to hold us throughout these days of our sacred journey.
We are humbled to be offering this cacao ritual with cacao grown by indigenous Mayan families in Guatemala. Our intention is to honor the origins of this plant and her caretakers by acknowledging that we are not only in relationship to a plant and this earth, but to a people and a history. Our heart-felt work with cacao, like the medicine of cacao herself, aims to bridge worlds by inviting us to consider our sacred response-abilities to all of our earth family. We hope you will join us in this reverence and deep reflection.
Water Blessings: Song & Sound Ceremony
We will come together on this day to unite our hearts, voices, and prayers for the water – focusing our intentions on the honoring and purification of our beloved waters here at Shasta, which also stand to represent all the waters on this planet, including the sacred water that makes up our own bodies.
As we know, water is a potent carrier for consciousness, and makes up over 70% of the Earth, so let’s create the change we wish to see in the world, harnessing the power of our collective intention to infuse this and all water with cleansing, unifying, and harmonizing vibrations.
