SOUND HEALING & SACRED CACAO CEREMONY / Port Douglas Yoga Studio 10.30am-12.30pm

Enter into the quantum landscape of the senses, a place where the preoccupied day-to-day mind drops blissfully into heart space.

Each session is lovingly held through a deep guided meditative state, combining the sacred plant medicine Cacao and the ancient practice of Sound Healing – allowing space for inspiration, manifestation and surrender.

Also known as sound baths or sound immersion, the art of healing with sound has been practised by civilisations around the world for millennia…
