How exciting that the summer solstice & full Strawberry moon coincide; the high vibing peak of energy of the solstice married with the love, joy & magic of the Strawberry full moon!

In this magical ritual I share my own personal practice with you, infusing the cacao medicine of Central & South America with the Celtic wheel of the year in deep communion with Mother Earth and in sacred circle.

It is advised that you should not drink cacao if you are taking anti-depressants.
