FIRE, CACAO & DRUMMING
Here we go again! The Wellbeing Campus would once more like to extend an invitation to you, your firends and family to join us for our sixth Fire, Cacao & Drumming event of the year. The gathering will take place out in the woodland of Claremont Farm — an undisturbed and seculuded environment surrounded entirely by nature.
The evening will consist of a mixture of music, meditation, an open fire and a special, potent brew of ceremonial cacao imported all the way from Peru. It offers those taking part a truly unique tribal experience as well as a deep sense of connection to the self and those sharing the space, influenced by a real drum circle, heart-opnening cacao medicine and by the environment that Littlefoot HQ team, Claremont Farm and Mother Nature have provided.
Drumming is a deeply hypnotic experience when shared with a group and gives us a chance to connect deeply with those around us, using nothing more than our drums, smiles and spirit to communicate. It’s widely discussed amongst drummers that the trance-like state induced in a drum circle is linked to the deeply-routed subconscious memory of being back in the womb, listening the heartbeat of our mother.
Join us on this immersive musical journey as we pay homage to our ancestors who lived, sang and danced to the beat of the tribal drums. You will not be dissapointed!

MORE INFO ABOUT THE EVENT
The Benefits of Cacao
To add to the experience, everyone will be served a cup of natures’ naturally heart-opening plant medicine known as cacao or 'Food of the Gods'. Cacao has been used for many thousands of years for its medicinal and nutritional properties throughout Central and South America.
Research has found cacao to have many cardiovascular benefits as well as an ability to increase oxygenated blood flow to the brain. It releases an abundance of bliss-inducing neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, dopamine and anandamide. Spiritually and emtionally, it is experienced as being a powerful heart-opening medicine which has been used cereonially for its ability to evoke feelings of closeness, love and connectedness to the self and others. We’ll be drinking cacao for all of these benefits, as well as for the boost in creativity it facilitates.
