The Infinite Possibilities Workshop
Have you ever imagined waking up every single day with a full heart and a big smile on your face?
Probably not as you may have been taught that life is hard, unfair, and not everybody is meant to be successful and happy… does that sound familiar? What if I were to challenge you AND those believes? What if I were to tell that actually life is grand, you are Divine, and each and every one of us has the birth right to be deeply fulfilled and happy.
That is exactly what I am bringing to my Yoga Retreat at Anamaya. A new way into thought and a new way of living life.
The Infinite Possibilities Workshop is a program developed by Mike Dooley, aka The Universe dude that breaks away old patterns of thinking into a more open, deliberate and conscious way of being. We have all been conditioned into believing that there is not enough of everything for every human being, and our society became sick and competitive; creating a fear base state that only brings us down and away from our Divine selves.
I started working with the program after receiving the “Notes from The Universe” which “accidentally” started arriving in my mail box… I truly do not remember signing up for them, still, receiving those notes were the highlight of my mornings. What was it about those notes that was so special? Well, they spoke of truth. Simple messages that we are ALL meant to be happy and we CAN live fulfilled lives. That by itself resonated very deep within my gut, aka soul. I would even get emotional reading those messages and thats when I knew this guy, Mike Dooley, was up to something profound.
I read and re-read his books and sign up for a conference in New Mexico in 2016. It was ALL I expected and MORE and I became a trail blazer for the program, hosting a workshop for 12 people in 3 days after the conference. Since then, I have been using his program for my own growth and expansion, and have also supported hundreds of humans like me to lead a life with purpose, joy and a deeper understanding of how our thoughts become things and how we are manifesting the lives we are living.
The massive shifts I experienced by incorporating the program into my life were also noted by my closest friends and family. I was no longer afraid of living my deepest truths and I no longer experienced lack. I started feeling the certainty that I was here for many reasons and that one of these reasons was to be HAPPY.
Within the years of being involved in this program and receiving the notes over the last 3 years, I can say I am truthfully blissful and grateful to be ALIVE. I have co-created the life of my dreams with clarity and I no longer suffer. It doesn’t mean I don’t have any problems… it means I’ve gathered tools to navigate my life with an open heart. Even when life throws unexpected stuff my way, I can respond to it instead of re-acting.
There is JOY to be experienced and invite YOU to dive into it with me in this 6 hour workshop that is designed to challenge and shift your way of thinking. We will gather together and work the program which consists of questions in a journaling form that instigate your mind and deepens your sense of self and how our families, teachers and society can sometimes impose “their” way into our psyche.
This 6 hours workshop will be divided over 3 days throughout our retreat and it will be a perfect complement for this self-care and self-healing journey you are on. You will receive printed material and we will work side-by-side to break patterns that no longer have a purpose in your growth, expansion and evolving process.
Investment: $175.00 with working material included.

“CHOCOLATE IS A DIVINE, CELESTIAL DRINK, THE SWEAT OF THE STARS, THE VITAL SEED, DIVINE NECTAR, THE DRINK OF THE GODS, PANACEA AND UNIVERSAL MEDICINE.”
~ ANTONIO LAVEDÁN, SPANISH ARMY SURGEON, 1796 ~
I first experienced Cacao and its physical and emotional healing powers, when my dear friend, student and teacher, Liz Getman returned from Guatemala with some Cacao and we officiated the very first Cacao Ceremony, connecting Metta Meditation and Reiki. We were a group of 5 friends and we ALL had an experience of rebirth.
Since then, I have been blessed to officiate many wonderful and magical Sacred Cacao ceremonies.
I have experimented and experienced many Cacao ceremonies along my travels through Central America, and I rose in love with Cacao from Costa Rica, cultivated by The BriBri Tribe.
What is Cacao?
Native to tropical regions of the world, cacao is chocolate before the processing—an unsugared, unadulterated form of one of the world’s favorite treats. Cacao’s scientific name, “Theobroma cacao,” translates to the “Food of the Gods” and for good reason. Known as a superfood, cacao is high in magnesium, calcium, antioxidants, and iron and is an incredible mood booster! One of our favorite cacao properties is anandamide, a neurotransmitter known as the bliss molecule. For those with an interest or background in yoga and/or Hindu philosophy, you may know that the word “ananda” means bliss and refers to a higher state of being. Cacao facilitates our goal of achieving that blissful state and deepens our connection to our highest selves.
According to indigenous myth, when the balance between humankind and nature is threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open our hearts and return us to harmony. Already have a connection to chocolate? We invite you to experience another dimension of that connection—a deeply spiritual or shamanic one. Sacred cacao partners with us, facilitating the journey inward and the discovery of our truest, most love-filled selves.
What is a Cacao Ceremony?
It is a gathering honoring ancient wisdom of the Mayans and Aztecs and the cultures of South and Central America. There is a sage and palo santo opening and cleansing of the energies and purification of the body before attendees sit in a circle.
Ceremonies officiated by Cristiane start with opening the 4 corners of the world and inviting the guidance of IxCacao Goddess of cacao by Mayan traditions and the Cacao, prepared solely with water (spices and sweeteners can be added) is blessed in preparation. After the Cacao is served also in a ceremonial and ritualistic manner, Cristiane guides the attendees in a Self Exploratory meditation that clears and connects mind, voice and heart.
What to expect?
Cristiane invites to NOT have any expectations… and, some participants have experienced tingling on their skin, energy that rises up to the eyes (Crying a s purifying and wonderful tool of self healing), some felt euphoria, and at times, a deep sense of liberation and joy. Many of Cristiane’s clients who she have worked closely with Cacao, have shared that they no longer make use of antidepressant and psychosomatic drugs.
