New Moon Sound Immersion. Cacao & Drum Circle _Mount Eliza
An alchemical sound journey with a guided circle of intentional manifestation, where the group shares cacao, breathes, harmonises, drums, chants, dances and creates together taking positive action towards a greater purpose for yourself and those in your own circle.
Arrival, teaching & sharing
On arrival we'll begin with a guided teaching, leaning into a conversation and sharing of the energetic theme relevant to the session. Here, we'll set intentions and align ourselves with the purpose collectively and to suit your own journey. then we'll move deeper into ceremony with cacao
What a beautiful way to share spirit, with a super unique cacao ceremony with 100% raw ceremonial grade and blessed Peruvian cacao unwatered down for full potency, followed by a maple syrup shot as a blessing to compliment the medicine with a burst of extra goodness. This is a taste and body sensation and a unique way of sharing cacao. then to sound. (See below for more on cacao)
A sound journey through the ceremony of ‘natural alchemy’ is an intuitive experience of beautiful harmonics aimed at enabling one with a connection to the divine spirit to trigger one’s own inner guidance, discover stillness within, a state of immersed bliss and healing vibrations.
Instruments are respectfully integrated from alternate cultures, many of which are made in ceremony through an alchemical process by Brad himself. The journey offered flows through channeled messages, vocal toning, harmonising, breathwork, a complete earth frequency crystal bowl set, chimes, ceremonial rattles, Tibetan singing bowls, yidaki (didgeridoo), guzheng (traditional Chinese harp), handpan, traditional ceremonial medicine drums and vegan drums. Live recording and looping are also integrated into the journey.
Oh, sacred geometry and large pyramids made from copper, silver, gold, and crystals will be woven into the space for a little extra alchemy to amplify the blissful state and help it become part of your being.
Energy field or auric movement transition
Moving out of the in-depth sound activation we’ll ease into full consciousness and be guided to move out of our inner journey of sound and allowing all that goodness to integrate with our everyday awareness. Starting with gentle stretching and eventually getting up and exploring your energy / auric field with movement. From here we even notice each other's energy and move together in a silent dance of energy. This is a truly delightful and beautiful experience that naturally progresses from our accumulated journey so far
Into the next phase, we’ll ease into a circle of co-creation, and pick up medicine drums, join in with the mother pow-wow drum, or clapping sticks, or rattles, or an instrument you've brought yourself. After a short intro/instruction, we find a rhythm together and create sound. This is creative, gentle & powerful, big energy that is a seed to bring what we've created into a transformative state that you can readily take into your own life in the everyday world and use for a better alignment to your purpose! This sounds big, it is! And we’ll do it easily, all together!
We'll wind down into a closing circle, honouring our experience and sharing our stories as we prepare to move out into the world to make a difference.

Brad is an intuitive alchemist who loves to immerse himself and play with sound. With a belief in creating with heart, he discovers, makes stuff with spirit, plays, meditates, and offers this back to others through ceremony where possible.
Academically, Brad has been immersed in creating, the esoteric, sound and meditation for over 20 years. He has a master’s degree in design and advanced diploma with the sacred sciences foundation amongst other learnings. But more importantly, a belief that the body is a temple and that to celebrate life in a wholesome, quirky and fun way is so very important.
More on Cacao...
Specific varieties of organic cacao taken in its pure form, treated at low temperatures without excessive refined sugars provide a very different and incredible product. Cacao is a superfood in itself, the caffeine and theobromine are stimulants; mixed in with polyphenols, antioxidants, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium, and manganese.
This aids in health benefits including balancing mood swings, cardiovascular health, fatigue reduction, glowing skin, improving digestion, cognitive function. Anti-inflammatory properties and it’s an aphrodisiac. Cacao aids in release of serotonin, anandamide and phenylethylamine which provide all that blissful goodness.
Cacao vs coco or refined chocolates.
Many have it as chocolate with small amounts of cacao farmed in low nutrient areas roasted at high temperatures, often with more refined sugar and other additives. Although it tastes great, it doesn’t make it very healthy.
For ceremony we have a high dosage, which is fine occasionally. if you have a heart condition or are taking antidepressants advise Brad to modify the serving
