Essence Festival has ended

We are so excited to be on this journey with you! Essence is an online portal, a virtual experience through the realms of magic, shamanism, and ritual. This is a place to learn about magic and mysticism, to taste the many avenues and modalities of spirituality and connection. In this space, we invite you to weave, to mingle, to share with an open heart, bring your gifts and be part of this global co-creation.

We bring to you a collective of modern witches, wizards, mystics, shamans, teachers and healers. Each have their own alchemical gift and medicine to bring to our planet. We encourage you to use your intuition and move towards those you feel drawn to or to those where you feel resistance. Explore this online bazaar with an open heart and trust in the journey. This is the place to find the path that resonates most with you!

Together we activate the planetary grid and move towards our evolution as humans and as a civilisation….

                                    and etheric realms, deeper into self and into the many subtle,

Devic Orders of Cacao Theobroma

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

An ancient Mayan prophecy says; “the Cacao Spirit will come out of the rainforest when the world goes into chaos, and help people reconnect to the magic wisdom of their hearts” We are living in times of chaos and unpredictability. Now more than ever, humans are being called to come together and recognize the unity of all things and dissolve the old paradigms of separation. The heart is the meeting place for this uniting energy and the consciousness behind Cacao is in total devotion to having the magic of your heart find you. It is here to tickle you in the deepest sense. This journey will adventure you into: - How the ancient Mayan shamans related with  this plant Spirit - the role the Cacao played in the Aztec civilisation - a wide spectrum share on the devic orders - an intuitive weave through the somatic field The invitation is to access your own cacao and make it ready to drink together in the beginning.
