Qoya, Cacao and Fire Ceremony

  • Mountain Light Sanctuary Old Ranger Road Barnardsville, NC, 28709 United States (map)

Are you ready to slooow down and connect deeply with yourself in an embodied, wholehearted, meaningful way? In this sacred evening we will begin with a Qoya practice. Qoya is movement as medicine, movement with meaning. Itโ€™s a feminine embodied soulful practice that helps us slow down, feel more, and come back to our true essence. The practice is better experienced than described, but itโ€™s like a cross between your favorite wedding dance floor memories and your deepest spiritual experience. 

 Qoya is usually women-only but this class + ceremony are open to both men and women. 

After our sacred movement practice, my fellow wisdom keeper Sarah Grady and I will co-lead ceremony. Weโ€™ll move to the fire pit and sip lovingly prepared cacao, a sacred plant medicine known to open the heart. As the sun sets, weโ€™ll begin a fire ceremony to commune with this powerful element, each having an opportunity to give thanks, release what is ready to go, and welcome in what you desire. 

Come for qoya, ceremony, or both! You can even stay the night for camping on this incredible land. The sanctuary is about 30 minutes north of Asheville in the middle of Big Ivy forest.

INVESTMENT for non-guests:

$20 for Qoya only; $30 for ceremony only; $45 for both Qoya + ceremony
