Cacao & Ecstatic Dance in Nature

Sat 11 Mar 2023 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Roundhouse in Bishop's Woods, Newton, Swansea, SA3 3BR


Join us for natural healing, cacao ceremony & an immersive dance journey at the Roundhouse in Bishops Wood near Caswell Bay. Connect with the rhythm of your soul with like minded people in this beautiful natural setting.  

🌎 Enjoy a smooth blend of elemental music, from tribal and shamanic beats, deep house, drum n'bass, dub, reggae, trance, amazonian healing songs and more... A heartfelt and joyful event to delight your 5 senses, uplift your spirit, be showered with love, and remind you how amazing you are 🔥 

The set will be dj'd live and guided by Seagypsee, DJ and facilitator at Mystic Cocoon and The Wild Woman Project.



At the beginning of this session, we will introduce ceremonial cacao. As well as being incredibly delicious, ceremonial cacao helps us to ground, enhance our dance experience and open our hearts. It can also gently guide us to connect with hidden dimensions of ourselves. At Mystic Cocoon we prepare cacao with great respect for the indigenous wisdom keepers of this master plant medicine, infusing it with prayers, songs and love during the whole preparation process ✨ BRING YOUR FAVOURITE MUG FOR THE CEREMONY.



You are invited to this safe, playful space, where the whole of you is welcomed. In this session, you will gently be guided to breathe, let go of stress, recharge and move as you feel. Dancing and cultivating authentic movement from the inside is deeply nurturing and healing. Be prepared to deeply connect with the elements, move, sweat, experience and enjoy!

🌊 Unlike clubbing, ecstatic dance sets are built like "waves" moving from slow and mellow, to very dynamic and everything else in between; gently guiding you to stretch your body and mind in many directions, to experience the vast spectrum of your emotions with mindfulness and wild abandon. Most of the time when people dance it is to look good to others, but here, we dance to connect with our authentic natural selves.

🌿 This is a 100% nature dance, set in the gorgeous Roundhouse with an open fire, deep in the beautiful Bishop's Wood Natural Reserve on the Gower coast.

🎧 We use wireless headphones to be respectful to the preserved wildlife around and be immersed in the best quality sound possible!
