Pure cacao is a traditional plant medicine long used in indigenous cultures for introspective and celebratory purposes. It fosters inner and outer connection, opens the heart, boosts mood, and increases focus. Cacao perfectly compliments a variety of meditative activities, ranging from shamanic drumming to ecstatic dance. Inner Waymark serves Mayan cacao grown organically at a family farm in eastern Guatemala and obtained directly from the source.


Instead of simple seated meditation, Inner Waymark takes a more dynamic approach to connecting with the universe through our physical and energetic body. We work primarily with OSHO meditations that combine breathwork and movement to release, recharge, and activate, mixing this with wisdom from shamanism, somatic psychology, and mindfulness meditation.


Vibrant Dawn is a "morning rave" – a substance-free early weekday yoga and dance extravaganza – that started in Detroit in August 2016 and currently runs quarterly. We start with guided movement, then transition into an open dance party. Finally we come together for a yoga class. Coffee and cacao are available for purchase. Massage and Reiki are offered by donation. Costumes and weird outfits are encouraged. This is an amazing way to start your day before going to work or anywhere else.

All of these sessions are tailored to the individual and include ceremonial cacao when appropriate.


Sometimes it feels like life is happening to you. If you have a nagging sense that something is missing, or you're thrust into a period of uncomfortable change, private coaching can turn this into a window for positive growth and discovery. Fulfillment, purpose, and peace are your birthrights just waiting for you to step into them.


Reiki is a gentle touch therapy that works on similar principles to Tai Chi and acupuncture. The practitioner doesn't "heal" you, but holds space for you to find your own way to healing. This can happen through deep relaxation, new insights on life, and a connection with the divine.


A session of Reiki followed immediately by coaching can be a very powerful combination. Often when receiving Reiki, someone may have associations arise from their social life, or a certain place in their body calls out for attention. Coaching can process what comes up and turn it into gold to be integrated into your day-to-day life.


Do you have an organization or group who would benefit from a deep transformational experience? Let Inner Waymark create a customized immersive retreat for you. Whether for a weekend or longer, we can build a retreat involving meditation, yoga, energy healing, movement therapy, communication training, mindfulness practice, cacao ceremony, and more.
