This opening, the conscious drop places us in a state similar to that of lucid dreaming, with the added feelings of being wrapped in an energy of unconditional love and support.

Join Wairua Sound at 10:30am, Sunday the 17th of July for a 2 hour immersion with cacao, sound and guided meditation, ending with a personal blessing for the three sacred aspects of self.
