We will be sharing a ceremonial grade cacao drink to open our hearts, energize, and connect with our higher selves. The cacao will lower blood pressure as it literally opens the arteries of our hearts. This increases the production of Anandamide, a naturally occurring fatty acid neurotransmitter that is named after the Sanskrit word ananda which means ‘joy, bliss & delight’.
Jai Gobind and Brian Dickinson will be co-creating the Cacao Ceremony with time to sit with the sacred land of The StarHouse and finish with call and response Kirtan songs.
With the lovely crisp, clear, and full bass of the Golden Turtle Sound System, Erothyme will be guiding us on a cacao fueled Ecstatic Dance.
Visionary Sound Bath
Erothyme, Brian Dickinson, Jai Gobind, and Treaphort will be co-creating a cosmic sound bathing experience with live manipulations of gongs, crystal singing bowls, tibetan singing bowls, vocals, chimes, and more. Treaphort will be guiding us into the sound bathing journey with some gentle breathing techniques to fill our vessels with prana and offer as deep of a journey into breath as each participant would like to take.
Combining cacao and breath with the acoustic vibrations massaging our cells; the digital augmentation, reverb, and transposition of the vibrations into different octaves creates a soothing experience for the body, mind, and soul.
Treaphort's Breathing Presence offering is a sonic accompanied energetic clearing and activation exercise. Beginning with light movement and yoga we ground in to our bodies, expanding our perception of the inner world. We then increase our capacity with basic pranayama and harmonize our chakra energy system with a self-created vowel sequence. Moving through our Breathing Presence breath-work sequence we release our energetic blocks and invite our purest intentions in to our system. We integrate it all and move back out in to the world.
Erothyme co-created a Visionary Sound Bath album with the Maui-based sound healing duo Opulent Sound this past winter.

Erothyme is the electronic music project of Bobby West. The Erothyme sound is hard to pin down with a genre label or a short summary, but nonetheless it is unmistakeable. In the first decade of his career, through more than 20 official releases and hundreds of original tracks, he has paved pathways through the realms of downtempo, funk, futuresoul, glitch, drum n bass, experimental pop, psy-jazz, ambient, trip hop, world fusion, and piano compositions, as well as many styles between and beyond, all the while tirelessly traveling back and forth across North America, spreading the vibrations.
An avid recording enthusiast, Erothyme often builds his soundscapes using sounds sourced from nature, as well as from the urban landscape, and anything that catches his ear. This practice can be thought of as a sort of alchemical transmutation of sound, based in the belief that all sound is musical and simply needs to be placed in context to be understood.

Brian Dickinson is a lover of mother earth and optimizer of the human experience. By using sound therapy, herbal alchemy, and alternative technologies he supports individuals and regenerative communities in feeling at peace and thriving. While researching the social aspect of community at a variety of off grid communities around the world, he began guiding people on deep meditative experiences using hypnagogic light technology combined with ethereal sound healing music. These tools for meditation sparked his excitement to learn about ancient ritual, ceremony, and sound healing modalities.
Brian launched Sonic Alchemy to encompass his sound healing and herbal alchemy offerings with the intention of creating alchemical labs at regenerative communities around the world. He is also co-creating workshops teaching people to use their intention and sound vibrations to clear distorted energies and reverse pollution in the air, water, and land.

Rob Treaphort has a natural ability to connect with beings in a deep yet expansive way. The work he does on this planet helps to clear the veil and etch clarity in the presence of participants. While witnessing the comedic value of duality, he will lead you to a place of pure and direct experience; Unity. Consciousness.
Cacao contains theobromine which stimulates the system much like caffeine can. If you are sensitive to caffeine or have low blood pressure a small dose or passing on the cacao is recommended. Many antidepressants do not mix with the tryptophan and MAOI's (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors) in the cacao… it is best to google your medication and potentially pass on the cacao – painful migraines or worse reactions may occur.
