This Funzing Experience:

Spending time with a group of compassionate,
heart-centred people sharing part of your pain, vision and dreams. Feeling the supportive community witnessing and sharing your healing journey...that is something very special that I've taken part of on several occasions in my life over the past 8 years and what I intend to bring to you.

If you would like to feel how it feels to truly connect with yourself, your soul and other people mirroring parts of yourself back at you, then I invite you to join this beautiful space created by all of us.

Every single one of you has something to share. Even if you don't say much when we meet, your ancestors, life stories and vibrations touches us all and mixes and shifts energies and fates as we move in and out of each other's lives.

The space we create is sacred. With the more people that enter the room, you may even start to feel the energies building up.

The way I facilitate is very fluid and changes from time to time as I follow my intuition. It all depends on who is coming and what their intentions are. There are often many 'Aha-moments' as we recognise other people's struggles and dreams.

Everyone is welcome and although we have a sharing in our circle, you may adjust the pace depending on what feels comfortable for you.

We meet with compassion, love, non-judgment and support. We don't advise other people what they 'should' do instead we listen, witness and hold space for each other.

Because of the variety of cacao, which is significantly more potent, and the amount consumed in the ceremonial dose, there are a couple of contraindications to be aware of:

- Prescription Anti-depressants: Those that use MAO inhibitors to treat depression are contraindicated with chocolate. Check your med's to see if this is the case. These tend to be less common nowadays.
- Serious Heart Conditions: cacao increases heart rate and is a vasodilator, so be careful if you have a serious heart condition
- Pregnant or breastfeeding: Go with a lower dose as cacao is a stimulant.


- Pregnant (first trimester)
- Tinnitus/Menieres/Epilepsy - Any conditions that could be triggered by sound.
- Metal implants/pins/screws/pacemaker - Can resonate the metal and also change rhythm of the pacemaker.
- Anyone with a serious mental health condition.


You will need to avoid caffeine on the day. We also recommend you to follow a fairly simple and alkaline focused diet the day before, and on the day of the ceremony (including avoiding alcohol).

You’ll also need to arrange a quiet, gentle evening for after the event as symptoms of physical and emotional detoxification can arise unique to each individual.


(Limited Early Bird tickets for £24 when purchased by 11.30pm on 4th of March.)

Only 8 spaces available.

We look forward to sharing this special journey together!



"Maria is a very skilled Healer and workshop Facilitator. I attended one of her Cacao and Gong Bath ceremonies last December and absolutely loved it. I felt uplifted and very peaceful afterwards and the feeling lasted for several days. I'm looking forward to attend another one soon. I strongly recommend Maria's services."

" I have recently been doing a lot of health work and as a massage therapist myself I had already heard from many reliable sources that Maria was a therapist to go see. I was recommended to see her for sound healing and gong bath work and was intrigued. I knew very little about it but was open to the idea and I am so happy that I went. It was unlike anything I have experienced and the way Maria holds the space is wonderful. Her style is quietly solid, strong, confident and caring and that really makes a huge difference. I will now be seeing her regularly for various treatments as the effects have been so positive and profound that there's no way I would deny myself the benefits of her work."
- Obi, London

"I find Maria’s workshops a place to take time to nurture myself bathing in the supportive atmosphere and healing sounds vibrating which help to soften and unwind from the pressures of daily life. I move to a much calmer, peaceful and more balanced state. The space created particularly in my head enables me to have greater detachment from events and see things more clearly."
