“Ceremony isn’t the only time you’re supposed to carry yourself in a sacred way. It is supposed to remind you, that you are sacred, and to carry yourself that way everyday.” – Unknown
Sitting in ceremony and sacred ceremonial space is surprisingly a very natural and innate need for us, and this is because it is driven by connection. When we sit in ceremony, we are connecting to all that is sacred in this world, all that is sacred within each other and all that is sacred within ourselves. Many indigenous cultures practiced sitting in ceremony regularly, this way they were reminded that we are all interwoven in the infinite tapestry of existence.
Working with different shamanic ceremonies take us into the different worlds of our being and with the use of tools and nature medicine we are able to transform parts of ourselves that we would normally not have access to. Sitting in ceremony allows us to meet parts of ourselves that we have hidden or suppressed in a way that is open, loving, kind, and gracious; all of which supports deep inner healing and accesses a deep knowing of your true inner self.
Ceremonial practices are very deliberate, intentional and contain many processes and working parts that are all brought together to create a space of Divine Alchemy. There are many different types of ceremonies that use many different tools and medicines, sound healings, power animal medicines, plant spirit medicines, and nature elements; all of which show up for us to support deep inner processes, healings, realizations, insights, and Divine guidance. Powerful transformation and catalytic change occurs when people gather in ceremony.
Sacred ceremonial space creates a container in which we can be still, connect, share, express, feel, sing, play, dance, pray, and give thanks for all that we are and all that we are together as a collective whole. The ceremonial containers which I create are supported, protected, held, activated and enhanced by powerful, ancient Dragon Medicine. Every ceremony is unique and holds a specific intention that is aligned to the authentic energy and type of ceremony being held. Each sacred ceremony will be supported, blessed, intensified, cleansed and our prayers elevated with the Sacred Pipe (chanunpa) to manifest miracles and honour the Sacred Ways and the Red Path.
Sacred IxCacao Ceremonies
IxCacao ceremonies were used by the Mayan traditions dating back to 600 BCE as not simply food, but as a delicacy connecting to Divinity. In modern cultures we use the beautiful Mother energy of this plant medicine to open our hearts, connect to our emotional body, to experience feeling within our physical body, and to access our inner wisdom and intuition. Journeying and sitting in ceremony with Mama Cacao can take us to places within ourselves that require love, nurturing, and nourishment.
This gentle, soft plant medicine walks beside us as we step onto the pathway into our heart and sacral spaces. Other plant medicines may take us on an outward journey, pulling us out of the body into the higher realms; whereas IxCacao holds our hands as we journey deep into the underworld of our bodies, only going as far as we are willing to explore and holding us gently as we fully experience the emotional and feeling states that have long been seeking our attention.
IxCacao is an opener, opening our hearts, our bodies, intuition and emotions to fully experience our sensory selves, all the while deepening our connection to who we are and our innate inner wisdom. The beautiful Divine Feminine guidance from IxCacao, allows us to be supported, held, nourished, and nurtured during any deep alchemical process work.

Dragon Fire Ceremonies
A Dragon Fire Ceremony is deeply transformative, magical and full of mystical wonder. Sitting in ceremony under the evening sky around a Dragon Fire allows for rapid transmutation and cleansing, deep stillness and beautiful healing. Working with fire in this way allows us to take our struggles and turn them over to Spirit through the flames, thus enabling us to alchemize on a much deeper level without getting caught up in the process. A fire ceremony allows us to begin releasing our old stories, dramas, chaos, paradigms, and wounding, inviting us to renew our spirit, to revive our energy and soften into our own rebirth. By placing our troubles into the fire we surrender deeply to the healing power within and around us.
Fire also represents passion, expansion, celebration, creativity, opportunities, integration, initiation and rebirth. To fully step into the energy and Spirit of fire, particularly Dragon Fire, is to be utterly transformed, as many Dragon eggs are born and hatched through the element fire. The gift of Dragon Fire holds many mystical and magical properties that is able reach deeply into the parts of us that truly need healing. The fire of a Dragon offers rapid transmutation as well as creation, manifestation and abundance coding. Their fire opens us to receive deep activation of hidden gifts, alchemical geometry and other medicines held in our heart space. These ceremonies are often held around the full moon or new moon lunar cycles.
