Event description


You do not want to miss this edition of Chocolate & Roses! After the success of our prior two events, we are excited to UP OUR GAME, featuring ALL THREE of Sacred Waters founding medicine musicians in one epic night of music, medicine & movement. 

This month, we will be devoting our dance to the Hindu Goddess Shakti! Sakti (shakti) means "power", and this deity signifies the creative life-force of the Universe, Prakruti, which is feminine according to ancient Ayurvedic wisdom.

  • Live channeled vocal and instrumental transmissions from Aria and Karro Moss throughout the dance,

About Sacred Waters

Sacred Waters Cacao Dances and Somatic Awakenings inspire breakthrough transformation that help us stay present in the miracle of every moment.Our mission is to take each individual from healing to thriving with our unique combination of divinely feminine music and movement, heart-opening cacao and community connection.

Our Cacao Dances are gentle journeys of music, medicine and movement, inviting you to embrace the 'Beauty Way' in your healing journey through somatic release. 

We embrace softness, gentleness, self-guided expression and sensual experiencing through the body.​

Structured approaches to healing that focus primarily on the mind are only partially effective, and result in rebounding into patterns that no longer serve us. Sacred Waters invites you to flow, to float, to surrender and to allow your own inner wisdom to light your path forward.

In a safe space held in love and acceptance, you move at your own pace, opening up step-by-step to ever more freedom of expression. 

This recodes our nervous system, balances and regulates emotions and moves stuck emotions out of your body.

When you recover a sense of safety in your own body, you are able to see life's challenges with perspective. F

rom there can find your wings and explore what it feels like to fly.​

Music, Medicine, Movement. This is the 'Beauty Way'
