We've got a special evening for Womb Yoga and Cacao Women's Circle, which includes a fundraiser for the farmlands devastated by the Taal Volcano eruption in the Philippines on January 12, 2020.
Come join us in Sisterhood for a nourishing Womb Yoga led by Diana and a special Cacao Women's Circle led by Chloe. You may choose to attend the two sessions together or separately.

Cacao is considered to be the Food for the Gods. Cacao gatherings and ceremonies have been known for thousands of years. Mayan spiritual elders consider the Cacao Spirit to be one of the most powerful deities in ancient Mayan cosmology. Cacao comes from the forests to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony.
Cacao is a superfood — rich in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, omega-6, vitamin C, and more. The cacao that we are offering is from an organic farm in Alitagtag, Batangas, Philippines. Hand-made with pure cacao, coconut milk, muscovado (organic brown sugar), and hazelnut. In this circle, we will settle by releasing tension through some gentle guided movement, making space in our bodies. Then, we welcome you to have this precious cacao hand-made by farmers in the Philippines. From there, we will give some time to write down what one needs to let go of and put it in a small fire to burn, making space in the mind. Letting go of habits that no longer serve us. Allowing the tenderness of the cacao to melt our worries away. Closing with a guided movement meditation that listens to the impulses of the body, dancing as a sacred force of healing.

About the fundraiser:
100% of the proceeds from the Cacao Women's Circle will go towards the regeneration of the farms in Batangas, where the cacao is from. The farms have been directly affected by the Taal volcano eruption last January 12, 2020. Now, there is a scarcity of this cacao that I am offering. The batch that I have gathered will be the last batch for the next one year or longer. It is now precious and with great care that I offer this heart-opening medicine to the public here in Singapore. Rest assured that your donation will go to a cause of disaster relief for these farmers in The Philippines.
