MUJERES DE BARRO - Women's Clay + Cacao Ceremony
Sunday, December 9
1:00 - 4:00 pm
Ojai, California

A monthly workshop honoring our cycles as women and the healing art we cultivate through clay + cacao.

Cacao Ceremony is a brief invitation to drinking cacao as a meditation. Mariana will be serving a light ceremonial dose of cacao, introducing the medicinal benefits of the ancestral beverage while welcoming our stillness into the space and catalyzing compassion + creativity.

IxCacao has been used as medicine by the Mayans and other indigenous lineages in Central and South America for centuries. Cacao is a medicinal crop, containing minerals and neuro-chemicals that beneficially affect our state of mind. The mild bitterness of a ceremonial cacao drink can also serve to cleanse the liver or release emotions, and the alkaloid content of pure cacao boosts circulation and absorption of nutrients. 
Cacao contains a natural source of caffeine called Theobromine.
We kindly suggest avoiding coffee / caffeine on this day to prevent dehydration.

It is during these times, we are called to connect back to source. Back to our roots, back to remembering, back to the Earth.
When we come together as women, we hold space to dive into our creative, feminine power and rise together with empowerment. We carry strength and spirit, both of which are held within our sacred vessel, our intuitive core, our womb.

MUJERES DE BARRO is an experimental workshop for women, embodying the healing art of our creativity and connection to clay. We co-exist with clay in every moment. In every step we take, Earth Mother feels our fingerprints. 

In this workshop, 

We will experience a brief informative lesson on traditional earthenware pottery, the transformation of earth into vessel and it's metamorphosis through fire.
We will explore the ancient technique of coil forming to create a vessel of our own.
We will express our voices through sculpting + community sharing.
We will embrace our hands as our creative compass.

Mujeres de Barro honors the lineages thriving off their devotion to pottery, past present and future. Grandmothers, mothers and daughters around the world utilize their heart and hands to make a living in remembrance to their ancestors.
This workshop is a blend of honoring these ancestral skills with discovery through our own creative language with clay.
