Sahara Dawn has been a musician and healer ever since being first inspired by sufi persian poetry and her family's traditional music as a young girl in Tehran, Iran. After exploring the underground scene at home she moved to London to further study and develop her passion for music. Fascinated by both the parallelism and divergence of music across the globe, she traveled across the globe to seek out the furthest reaches of human expression, in forms such as triphop, downtempo, world beat, glitch, sacred intonations, and avant-garde. She intricately weaves these healing energies bringing people together through the freeing discovery of transcendental divine connection.

We are so blessed to work with a Cacao that has such a unique origin. This Organic Cacao Medicine is grown by Mayan farmers and indigenous communities of Guatemala. This strain of Cacao is known to be 5,000 years old, and comes from the deepest heart of Mayan Tradition, and the First Peoples of that land.
