Spellbound – A Sacred Journey through Shibari, Sound & Cacao. Feb 1, 2020

Are you looking for something new to embrace? Do you want more connection, more love, and more bliss in your life?

Well, we have something super juicy for you!!


This potent collaboration between three incredible souls is sure to blow your socks off! This three and a half-hour immersive experience will offer you a journey like no other.


Our experience aims to fuse three offerings: Mark Cedro from Inner Soul
sounds guiding you with his soul-touching sounds, Aum Shivanii from Soul Love Empowerment offering a profound, heart-centered Cacao ceremony and Ben Irvine leading an introduction to partnered shibari play followed by an offering of a breathtaking shibari performance by Ben and Shivanii.
Shibari is the art of Japanese connective rope binding and is becoming ever more popular.


Shibari has emerged in fetish and BDSM communities, but we are offering a sacred take on this form of connection. Our goal is to dive into beautiful tying experiences which are attuned and healing.


The shibari workshop will demonstrate just enough technical pointers, combined with tips on safety, attunement, trust-building and taking charge to enable rope-play that is connected, healing and pleasurable without needing to do drills or have a repertoire of ties.


This Journey will take you on a wild ride of love, bliss, awe, and connection…this journey is totally new and unique in Melbourne!!

The Handpan
Percussion
Gongs
Crystal bowls

Mark is drawn to all instruments that connect the listener to the vibration that exists behind all things.

Shivanii is a grounded, heart-centered Holistic Life Coach, Energy Healer, and facilitator, who has been working with Cacao for several years now. Cacao is a potent plant medicine that will offer love, connection, and support through this healing experience. Shivanii will offer a ceremony where you can drop deep into your heart and set intentions for your journey. She will also be offering a powerful transmission with Ben – a soul-shaking Shibari Performance.

Ben Irvine is a shibari teacher, performer, and practitioner. He loves disrupting stereotypes by demonstrating shibari’s powerful potential for heart-focused connection and healing.

What are the benefits of Sound?

The Vibration of Sound is another powerful healing tool to help us to connect back with one’s self, help us enter a deep meditative state where the healing work can begin. Sound has a powerful way of shifting and releasing blocked energies, blocked emotions, or even just helping our tired muscles relax and heal. It is a vibrational way to find a deep sense of inner peace.

What are the benefits of Cacao?

Cacao, also known as “the food of the Gods,” is a bean native to South America though it is grown in many other places around the world. Cacao is full of protein, calcium, carotene, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. Along with all its health benefits, cacao is great for circulation as it sends more blood to the heart, lungs, and the brain; This creates a beautiful expansive feeling.

The heart center is opened and widened for more love, joy, and bliss to be cultivated and flood the body. An open heart center creates a relaxed state of euphoria, which, when combined with conscious breathing, can lead to incredible and natural trance-like altered states of consciousness.

*The medicine we will be service is gluten-free and vegan
