The Louisville airport, SDF.

What is plant medicine? 
We will be holding a plant medicine journey working with the sacred medicine of cacao. This plant has been used for thousands of years by indigenous peoples for its heart opening effects for spiritual healing and remembering. She is gentle but powerful. Cacao is considered a superfood with powerful antioxidants and contains the perfect ratio of calcium and magnesium for absorption by the body. If you eat chocolate and drink coffee or caffeine, you should have not have any issue. Cacao is a vasodilator so it will increase blood flow and act as a stimulant with energizing effects but without the crash of caffeine. As always, please check with your physician if you have any concerns or are taking prescription medications. 
How should I prepare? 
Think of this retreat as an opportunity to unplug and be fully with your heart. By saying yes, your soul will naturally start to align with higher trajectories and you will notice synchronicities begin to appear. Take note of the inspiration flowing in and the signs that offer affirmation on your path. More information will be provided as the event draws near. 

It's time to sow the seeds... of your highest expression.
