CANCELLED: YNA Shamanic Naked Chocolate Ceremony
December 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Shamanic Journey Through Pure Chocolate, Sacred Song & Movement
***UPDATE*** We regret to announce that this event has been CANCELLED.
Due to some circumstances beyond our control, we unfortunately have to cancel this event. We were very much looking forward to doing this ceremony, but it did not work out. We do not have another event scheduled at this time. You can subscribe to our mailing list to get announcements about upcoming events and more.
On Saturday, December 19, YNA is hosting a naked Shamanic Cocoa Ceremony with Ronit Lev, an Israeli chocolatier.
Ronit makes amazing chocolate desserts to be enjoyed and savored. Her creations and heart-opening ceremony are an experience you don’t want to miss!
More about the ceremony from Ronit: Chocolate is the drug of love. The ancient Indians were well acquainted with the secret ability of the cacao to cure the heart.
For the sacred chocolate ritual, we only use organic, vegan, fair trade and handmade chocolates that are sweetened with organic desert dates. Such special chocolate serves as a reminder that life is simply a wonderful thing.
During the ceremony, we will call upon the four directions. With every direction we will enjoy the chocolate or a chocolate drink that was created specifically for that direction and we will receive the special gifts that were meant for us as individuals and for us all as a group.
Such a gift can be that of healing, balance, release, a renewed understanding of reality or simply the openness of the heart to recognize the beauty and unity found in all.
Through sacred singing and mantras we will experience a transcendence and touch upon the deepest layers of the divine which are exposed only when we let the heart be truly open. We may also be inspired to go into spontaneous dance and movement as the cacao fills our hearts with joy.
We attended one of Ronit’s ceremonies with Israeli naturists at the Pashut Festival this past spring. It was a beautiful experience, so we’re thrilled to be able to do this event with her in New York!
This is a nude event that will be held in a private studio space in Long Island City, Queens. The exact address will be sent via email once you purchase a ticket (tickets will go on sale this week).
Who can attend? YNA is an inclusive, body-positive, LGBTQ+ friendly community. This event is for age 18+, but there is otherwise no age limit. Though our events are geared towards the younger generation, we welcome the young and “young at heart.”
What to bring: a towel, sarong or something to sit on, a bag for your clothes and ID. We’ll be sitting on a wood floor, so feel free to bring a yoga mat to sit on. (We will also have some extra mats and a few chairs.)
First YNA event? Please check out our event FAQs page.
Tickets will go on sale soon and will start at $40 for YNA members and $50 for non-members (increasing up to $50 and $60). Click here to get a YNA membership, which is just $22 / year and helps support our work as an organization.
NOTE: There will be a French filmmaker who will be doing some filming at this event as part of a short documentary about nudism / naturism in the U.S. You do not have to be in the film and can opt out entirely. All consenting participants will sign a release form and receive a wristband upon arrival.
