Vibrate in light
Cacao, Kundalini and all-night Gong Puja
We invite you to experience a unique transformational night with Cacao ceremony, Kundalini Yoga and all-night Gong Puja. A night in a loving cocoon of soft vibrational sound waves for self-healing, deep rest, and transformation.
We will begin our evening with a nourishing cup of sacred ceremonial Cacao fresh from Bali, setting an intention as we drink small sips and arrive, calling in the spirit of Cacao and other loving forces to assist us on the path ahead. We will then gently transition into a soft kundalini yoga practice, building on releasing and relaxing the body and mind, clearing the path with a beautiful mantra meditation, tuning into the wisdom and guidance of the soul, and calling in the light.
Then there will be a short break to set up the “sleeping nests” so you can relax and dive into the vast universal ocean of the all-night Gong Puja, where you will be bathed in harmonious sound waves until the morning. The vibrations will be washing over you, cleansing, clearing, and releasing tension and stress from everyday life, while inducing deep states of relaxation.
At around 6:00 am the Gongs will go silent for 30 minutes of stillness and deep rest, and then we will gently wake up and chant the beautiful and powerful mantra “Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam Siri Wahe Guru” strengthening the relationship with the soul and the universal Self, harmonising and balancing all the chakras – And then it is time for a delicious NOR: Breakfast!

The practices combine in bringing flow and focus to your life force energy, releasing old energy blocks and attuning to the vision and guidance of your soul, honoring yourself as a being of love and light – welcoming what is here now.
Cacao is a kind and heart opening rich plant medicine that gently attunes us to our feeling body – restoring emotional balance, increasing the intuitive and sensory perception and freeing creative expression. It often brings a sense of sweet kindness and compassion to the receiver. The sacred cacao we use is Raw fermented ceremonial grade, grown in sustainable small organic farms in Bali. It is one of the very best qualities in the world. You may notice it has a slight bitterness to the taste compared to processed cacao, and that it is more thick in texture. Bonus is that it is super healthy, rich in minerals and antioxidants. It’s traditionally said that the spirit of Cacao will take you to the gates of the heart, but that you will have to decide to walk through them.
Kundalini yoga is a meditative and dynamic practice to connect with your essence and soul, and for expanding in awareness and balancing body, mind, and soul. Working with pranayama, asana, mantra, mudra, and meditation, to circulate and focus the life force energy. The practice gently helps to dissolve energetic blocks and harmonize what needs support. Nurturing intuition, accessing states of deep meditation, stimulating natural detoxification and much more, but most of all clearing the path to the inner guidance of the soul.
The Gong creates an ocean of sound that is profoundly relaxing and induces a holistic resonance in the body and a natural meditative state in the mind, fostering a sense of expanded awareness and wholeness. The all-night Gong Puja lasts for about seven and a half hours, which is the equivalent of ten Gong Baths. The Gong produces tones that resonate through time and space, helping bridge the gap through subconscious layers in body, mind, soul and spirit – all becomes one, one becomes all.
What to bring:
Please bring anything you need to make yourself comfortable. An inflatable camping mattress and sleeping bag or blanket is ideal. Feel free to bring along pillows, eye mask and anything else you might like to bring to aid relaxation.
Your journal to write and snacks for the night if you need it.
This event is open to all ranges of experiences.
