🍫 Cacao Ceremony with Josii Yakecan (Brazil)

Experience the profound wisdom of cacao as Josii, a multiverse artist and seasoned guide, leads us through a heart-opening cacao ceremony. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, Josii’s medicine music resonates with the soul, empowering us to heal and awaken through the power of sound and voice.

Josii Yakecan is a wild seed from Brazil, singer and composer of medicine music, explorer of voice and sounds. She expresses her vision and experiences through music, in rituals and ceremonies.

Lover of nature, she seeks her greatest source of inspiration in it.

Josii became known worldwide for her song Jurema Oh Jurema which has been a powerful song in the world of Healing Music and the growing spiritual movement for almost 10 years now. Josii’s music has taken her around the world with her performances and ceremonies that provide a sacred, intimate and heart-warming space for all in attendance. This artist sings the song of the spirit and embodies the stories she tells, expressing music that reverberates deep within the heart, wisdom and soul. To experience the essence of this stunning singer is to be taken on a musical journey that takes us back to the core of our own inner existence.

Josii’s cacao ceremony is a deeply immersive experience, beginning with a communal gathering in a sacred space where participants are welcomed with warmth and reverence. As the ceremonial-grade cacao is prepared and served, Josii infuses the atmosphere with her soul-stirring live musical performance, drawing inspiration from her multiverse artistry and the natural world. Her melodic prayers and sacred songs intertwine with the aroma of the cacao, elevating the ceremony to a transcendent level of spiritual connection. Participants are invited to sip the cacao mindfully, allowing its healing properties to open their hearts and minds. Guided by Josii’s ethereal melodies, they embark on a journey of self-discovery, delving into their emotions, intentions, and inner wisdom. Through meditative practices and shared reflections, the ceremony fosters a sense of unity and healing within the group. As the ceremony draws to a close, Josii’s music carries messages of gratitude and blessings, leaving participants uplifted, inspired, and deeply connected to themselves and the world around them.

💃 Ecstatic Dance with DJ Shamashka

Feel the pulse of the earth beneath your feet as DJ Shamashka takes us on a musical journey infused with the sounds of native instruments and the whispers of nature. Masha Andreeva, AKA DJ Shamashka, is one of the organizers behind Anahata Open Air Festival ( www.anahata.ca) and her sets are crafted as prayers for the heart to open and for healing to flow, inviting us to dance with abandon and reconnect with the essence of our being.

Masha is a certified yoga instructor, facilitator of shamanic ceremonies and retreats and a passionate mindfulness propagator. She if currently finishing her diploma in art theraoy and undergoing registration as a registered psychotherapist.

Masha also has studied music as medicine in Canada and in Peru and continues to offer sound circles and soundbaths as part of Project Mariri.

Ecstatic dance is a form of freeform movement and self-expression, typically practiced in a group setting. Participants gather in a safe and supportive environment, often in a dimly lit space with uplifting music. Unlike traditional dance forms, ecstatic dance has no set choreography or structure, allowing individuals to move freely and authentically according to their own inner rhythms and emotions. The focus is on connecting with the body, letting go of inhibitions, and expressing oneself without judgment. Ecstatic dance sessions often incorporate elements of meditation, breathwork, and guided movement to facilitate a deeper connection to oneself and the collective energy of the group.

🎶 Soundbath by Project Mariri

Surrender to the healing vibrations of sound as Project Mariri envelops you in a cocoon of sonic bliss. Project Mariri is a collaboration between Mariya Garnet and Masha Andreeeva based on their longstanding dedication to using music as medicine.

​Their experience with traditional healing modalities of South and North America and Eurasia informs their shared values that nature is sacred and that we are all interconnected in the web of life on Mother Earth.

​Masha and Mariya are integrating years of traditional apprenticeship with formal western education in psychology and psychotherapy to create safe space filled with healing sounds for groups and individuals to journey through soundscapes.

​”Mariri” means Force of Nature/Forest for Indigenous people of the Amazon. We feel that the name strongly relates to our belief that nature is sacred and we are part of it. “Mariri” is also a tribute to our plant medicine work.

A sound bath is a meditative experience where participants lie down and are immersed in sound vibrations created by various instruments such as crystal singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and drums. The sounds are played in a way that promotes relaxation, stress reduction, and a sense of inner peace. Participants often close their eyes and focus on the sounds, allowing them to enter a deep state of relaxation and heightened awareness. Sound baths are believed to have therapeutic effects on the body and mind, promoting healing, balance, and harmony.
