Dive deep into the portal and tap into the sacred powers of our root and sacral chakras during this dark moon ceremony focusing on accessing, harnessing, and fiercely displaying our performative power in the sacred presence of other divine beings! If you’ve been wanting to try out performance practices and performative rituals, this ceremony is a safe and nurturing environment to try them out. And similarly, if you are a seasoned performer who has been itching to perform, this is the perfect place for you to come and show off your magic!
Dark Moons are the perfect time to commune with the spirit realm and peer behind the veil. To access the deep intuition found in our bodies and in our movements. Dark Moons often help us feel more aware of our psychic abilities and energize our bodies with the potent energies of the sacred void.
All that is needed is you and your gorgeous body to attend this ceremony. If inspired, please gather your sacred garments, your potent relics and gems, and your toys and blessed accessories. After a short guided visualization and clearing, participants will be given some time to practice and prepare their upcoming performances. Each individuals will be given 2 minutes to perform for the group. They will inform the group if they would like feedback or reflections. After the experience, there will be time for the group to connect and share their experiences and downloads.
