Chocolate Groove – Dance Celebrations is a Weekly Social, Dance Celebration featuring Toronto’s best DJ’s in one of the most Visionary Alternative venues in Canada!
We strive to foster a safe family friendly space, open for all people to come together, have fun and Celebrate Life. This is an environment conducive to meaningful Transformation and Authentic Connection!
As an alternative to alcohol culture, we include, a FREE elevating and heart opening “Cacao Elixir” AKA. “The soul of Chocolate”, or If you don’t want the Cacao, you can enjoy a Live on tap Kombucha on tap upon entry! The beautiful multi-leveled Aternity venue has a very diverse holistic Elixir Bar with over 7 different Elixirs available, Vegan treats, Nourishing food and Kombucha on tap!
The context of the ceremony is a safe and beautiful space that supports meditation (reflection and connection to the “larger aspects of yourself”). This creates a rare opportunity to explore and sit with the stories of the heart and to identify areas that are causing you restriction, limitation and pain. You have the chance to relax deeply and receive insights, inspiration and creative ideas that can give you a clarity on the “next steps” of your life and where you can support your overall health.

CACAO :: Chocolate Elixir “The Soul of Chocolate”
Cacao is known as a heart opening medicine that has been used by indigenous cultures since ancient times. Cacao beans constituted both a ritual beverage and a major currency system in pre-Columbian Meso- american civilizations.
The plant name “Theobroma” or Cacao (translating from the greek: theo = god and broma = food It is the perfect elixir for Movement, Play & Connection.
It is known to increase circulation, Energy, Elevate your mood, Boost Libido and is a natural aphrodisiac. It is known to induce a Euphoric state of Higher Consciousness & Bliss, bringing you into connection with your body and heart centre.
Though there is not much if any caffeine in Cacao, it does have Theobromine which has a similar effect on the body but does not cause the same harmful effects on the nervous system as caffeine.
With an array of organic spices and sweetener, we drink this food of the Gods in cups of roughly 25 – 30 grams of Raw Cacao Paste together in an opening circle to set our intentions for the evening.
Other Benefits of Cacao::
- Heart Opener
- Reduces Stress / Anti-Depressant
- 40 Times the Antioxidants of Blueberries
- Loaded with Magnesium & Iron
- Improve Brain Function
- Contains “Anandamide” ( A neurotransmitter which fills dopamine receptors in the brain, filling us with feeling of euphoria and bliss)
