Solstice New Moon Sacred Sound & Cacao Ceremony
June 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We are in the midst of the Seven Sacred Days of Solstice and approaching the powerful Cancer New Moon on Friday. This indeed is a beautiful and powerful time for ritual and gathering to empower our Light and intentions! This year the Solstice and Cancer New Moon occur just within a couple of days of each other so we will be celebrating both together on the 7th Day of Solstice — New Moon Friday June 23rd at Lumeria Maui Retreat Center! The New Moon is a time of spiritual gardening and planting seeds of Intentions. The Summer Solstice is a time of great celebration for the life giving energy of the Sun in all it’s full glory! Without our Sun there would be no life on Earth as we know it!!! It is strong enough to awaken and activate the life giving force within seeds that have been planted beneath the earth as well as the seeds of our hearts true desires!!! So come get charged up! These are the longest days of the year!!!
Mystical Alchemy Ceremonies bring sound healing, music and ritual together in an inspiring and transformational way and incorporate sacred and uplifting music, guided meditations and the vibrational frequencies of 432 hz crystal singing bowls, Tibetan bowls, gongs, chimes, and rich soundscapes. Each ceremony includes an invocation, release process and sound bath to help align with the energies of the New Moon. Sound Healing is said to be the medicine of the future as science has proven that one can literally affect their DNA through the alchemy of sound, frequency and intention. As such, it is a powerful tool for transformation and manifestation. Innovative visionary mystics Heather Salmon and Donny Regal bring decades of experience as professional prayerformers, healers and agents of change.
Also joining us is special guest Kirtan artist Devaa Haley Mitchell. Devaa’s debut album Sacred Alchemy is a beautiful collection of songs and chants dedicated to the Divine Feminine in numerous forms from around the world. She mixes English with Kirtan and brings to life the gifts and power of the goddess! She is a high priestess in the lineage of the 13 Moon Temple and leads Soulful and Inspiring Women’s trainings internationally. She is also the cofounder of the Shift Network along with her husband wisdom keeper Stephen Dinan who will also be present and sharing.
Sacred Cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Signifying both life and fertility, it was ingested by Royalty in ceremonial worship. Due to certain active ingredients that help release ‘feel good’ emotions, cacao is considered a heart opener. Creating feelings of emotional intimacy and pleasure which facilitate healing and transformation.
Our Sacred Cacao is lovingly prepared with the finest organic ingredients and offered as cacao nuggets to be eaten.

I believe Sacred Sound to be at the foundation of creating higher success. And the potent qualities of sacred sound is especially powerful when led by two healing artists like Heather and Donny.

Pure magic!!! This is the experience that Heather and Donny create during their sound healing ceremonies. They always offer a safe and sacred space to connect deeply with mind, body, heart, and soul.
