POSTPONED - Embodied Bliss: A Tantric Cacao Journey of the Chakras
*** UPDATE - RE: COVID-19 ***
With the growing concerns around COVID-19, along with the health mandates issued by the Alberta government, the remaining Embodied Bliss ceremonies in this series will be postponed until it is safe for us to gather together again in this way.
While I know that these ceremonies offer incredible health benefits to you, at this time it is clear that physical distancing is a prudent course of action to take in order to prevent further spread of this virus, and to help reduce the strain it causes on our health system. The set up of these ceremonies, and the practices included in them, would not allow for the 2 meters of physical distance that is required right now.
Postponing these events is an act of love and solidarity. While we celebrate connection, we do need to prioritize the health and safety of everyone within our community as well.
I have decided to leave the option to purchase tickets open to everyone, for when we are able to hold the next one! Because we WILL be gathering again, even if it doesn't feel like it right now.
You can continue to support me and my work by purchasing a ticket, or a pack of 3 tickets, to use at later dates here:
If you purchase a ticket (or have purchased a ticket), you will automatically be offered a first priority spot at any smaller gatherings I hope to offer (when it is safe to do so), or you will have the option to use your ticket at a future Embodied Bliss class instead.
Thank you for your support, during this extremely challenging time.
I miss you, I miss our community, and I can't wait for the moment when we can gather and share a hug again.
Join us for this opportunity to honour and care for yourself, through a Cacao Ceremony and a guided Tantric journey. This is a space for personal exploration, authentic self expression and deep connection with self and others.
Come to feel more alive and present in your body, to expand, to heal, and to create more space for what you want in life - all while being seen, heard, felt, and embraced by our incredible community. ♥️
~✶ We come together in celebration of our embodied human experience (root), our creative potential (sacral), our personal power (solar plexus), our deep capacity to love (heart), our ability to self express and to speak our truth (throat), our inner knowing and intuition (third eye), and our oneness with all that is (crown). ✶~
•~✶~• What will the evenings look like? •~✶~•
✶ Each evening will start with a welcome circle and a Cacao Ceremony: A beautiful heart-opening ritual that can offer us enhanced access to our energetic body and with it new dimensions of sensation, beauty, wonder, love, and the exquisite pleasure of bliss. You will be offered a ceremonial dose of raw organic cacao in warm liquid form. We will drink it together at the beginning of the workshop, during the welcome circle.
✶ Then you will be guided in a variety of non-sexual Tantric practices: including voice, movement/dance, meditation, sound, touch, and breath - these may be done solo, in dyads, or through group exercises. Each exercise is designed to activate the energy centres and raise the vibrational frequency within every cell of your body. Through this journey, your energy becomes a spiritual catalyst for accessing truly exceptional states of being - offering you a deeper appreciation and understanding of self, and of others.
✶ At the end of our time together, the evening will be brought to completion with a short closing circle.
This is a drug & alcohol free event.
There will be no nudity or sexual activity.
All Are Welcome! You can come by yourself, with friends, or with a partner. It is wonderful for singles and couples. No experience is required!

•~✶~• What is Cacao? •~✶~•
Do you love chocolate? Well, chocolate loves you too! Cacao is a beautiful and gentle heart opener that has been used for centuries to access euphoric states, release emotions, and unlock transformational shifts. Cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the tribes of Central America.
It contains over 300 health-giving nutrients, along with Anandamide (known as the bliss molecule for its capacity to elicit feelings of euphoria), and Theobromine (from Theo-broma, which literally translates as God-Food) which potentiates the release of dopamine - the ‘pleasure’ hormone. Cacao also contains Phenethylamine, which is known to help relieve stress and depression and is released in the body during emotional euphoria, creating heightened sensation and empathy.
The sheer ecstasy felt from cacao can be described as nothing less than a divine experience. Ultimately, cacao can help deepen your connection to your heart, and expand your capacity to love and be loved. In this class you will be offered a ceremonial dose of raw organic cacao in warm liquid form. We will drink it together at the beginning of the workshop, during the welcome circle.
•~✶~• What is Tantra? •~✶~•
Tantra is a way of living. It is a set of tools, practices and perspectives that you can apply to all areas of life. The Tantric path is a spiritual journey that worships and honours all aspects of being: A unity of polarities, a practice of non-duality. Tantra is a path of deep awareness and mindful living that recognizes pleasure as the gateway to our true essence and power. Those who feel called to practice Tantric living are those who choose to do relationships and life in a new, more conscious, way.
~✶~ IMPORTANT NOTES ~✶~
During the welcome circle, we will establish intention, guidelines and boundaries so that every person feels fully honoured and supported in moving only as fast and as far as their own sense of safety permits. No one is required to do anything they don’t want to do. Personal boundaries are honoured and respected. Each person is encouraged to only participate at the level that feels most nourishing to them. You are absolutely welcome to participate in the class and the ceremony without drinking the cacao. You will be given this option before signing a waiver.
It is important that you CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR about drinking highly concentrated Cacao if you have any medical conditions - especially ones relating to your heart/cardiovascular system, mental health, or if you are pregnant/breast feeding. Please do this before attending the event, so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to drink the cacao during the ceremony.

~✶~ Testimonials about Embodied Bliss ~✶~
“This was the first time I had ever gone to a cacao ceremony and had some incredible revelations and breakthroughs on both physical and emotional planes. Angela does a great job of facilitating and creating a safe and relaxing space and journey.”
"Angela is an incredibly giving person. She is a consummate professional, deeply caring, and genuinely interested in your success. I recommend you take every class you can from her.”
"I have attended two of Angela's embodied bliss classes for both the root chakra and sacral chakra. I had an incredible experience particularly with the sacral chakra ceremony. I felt energies move in ways that I have never experienced before. It has profoundly affected my life. My anxiety levels have dramatically decreased and I am finding a significantly deeper connection with myself and others. It has also increased my personal awareness and confidence and connection with my own Divine Feminine nature. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in this kind of the path to attend these ceremonies as they could have a profound impact on your life in a very positive way.
Angela is a gifted facilitator who embodies and practices what she teaches and is amazing at holding space for others in their transformational process." ~ Candice
