About the event

Utilizing ancient wisdom and the properties of Cacao, a potent natural medicine, we can open our hearts. This allows for deeper exploration of our emotions, introspection, and significant inner growth. We will begin a journey to transcribe these stagnant energies onto paper, employing a dynamic blend of automatic meditative drawing and more deliberate, intentional imagery.  This cathartic energy release frees these energies from our personal sphere, imprinting them onto the page. In doing so, we create a void, which we can then fill with something new, something we desire.

The act of drawing, or creating with our hands in any form, is not just an artistic endeavour. It's a potent medicine, a transformative method that enables us to move energy and enact change from within, allowing us to transform ourselves from the inside out.

 Through this process, we not only create art, but we also sculpt our inner selves, shaping our future with every stroke of the pen. Asking yourself, what are you ready to draw into your life? What do you desire to manifest? As we shift our attention and draw from creation and manifestation.

Art workshop guided by Sarah Vacariello 

Sarah's work delves into character portraits and spiritual, natural, and cosmic realms. Lately, she emphasizes plant medicines on her canvases, using her art as a conduit for their visions. She narrates her own and others' stories, seeing art as a means to channel energy, assimilate insights and facilitate healing.

Cacao's Invocation facilitated and Music by America Maldonado

America started a spiritual journey to reconnect with ancestral traditions. As a documentarian, she interacted with global elders and traditions, discovering Cacao, which began her healing and evolution. She also leads a monthly Women's Cacao Circle at Ofrenda Fest. Motivated by indigenous efforts, America created Ofrenda Fest, a platform merging art and ritual in ceremony, fostering earth reconnection and communal healing.
