Come sit in ceremony with us during this sacred time of year!

There will be oportunities for heart sharing and connection within sacred space. You will learn about the practice of ceremony and cacao as sacred medicine as well as other tools to access the inner realms and create healing in your life! Reviews for Sacred Cacao: "The event I went to was amazing. This is something that I will always remember. I plan to go to another event. I was blown away by such beautiful voices and music. You will be surprised in the best way possible. I had a great feeling of release and healing. I had no idea that Cacao was sacred, which now gives me all the more reason to love chocolate! Come with an open heart and open mind to this ceremony. You are in for a treat!" Bethany Otten “Wow, where do I even start? Binah’s Cacao Ceremony was definitely the highlight of my trip. Before booking, I really had no idea what to expect but I knew I wanted to attend. And thank goodness I did! Binah’s studio is in a great location right on Wall St. Her energy is warm and welcoming. And her Cacao blends are so delicious. I couldn’t leave without purchasing a bag to bring back home with me! The ceremony itself was beautiful. It was sacred and connected and I left feeling calm, peaceful and empowered. Asheville is such a beautiful city because of people like Binah. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with her and the others in attendance!  If you have the chance to partake in a Cacao Ceremony with Binah, do it!” Emily Foran Please Note: This is a facilitated group healing ceremony. Please refrain from any other substances of plant medicines prior to the ceremony. For an enhanced experience fasting the day of is recommended, though not required, a light meal before hand is also a good idea, especially if you are sensitive. Please bring any instrument or song to share and your favorite mug for ceremony! ***No one turned away for lack of funds, there are 5 spots available at a sliding scale rate ($20-$40) so choose 'donation' for this option at check-out.

Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met, and soon formed indie band The Weepies.  On the strength of their simple yet insightful songwriting and distinctive harmonies, they quietly sold more than 1.5 million records with over 54 million streams on Spotify, 25+ million views on YouTube, and over 110k social media followers. They married and had three children, rarely touring but continuing to release their music; five records over seven years.

Just before Christmas 2013, when their youngest son was 17 months old, Deb Talan was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.  She was in chemo by New Year’s Eve.

In 2014, Deb beat cancer, and The Weepies recorded the best album of their career. Coming back from the edge sharpened their skills and focus. At 16 songs and almost an hour long, SIRENS shows a band at the height of its powers.

The couple was unable to travel while Deb was in treatment, so they worked at home, inviting guest musicians to record remotely wherever each musician happened to be, resulting in an unlikely superstar backing band. Players from across the spectrum jumped in, including: Pete Thomas and Steve Nieve (Elvis Costello), Gerry Leonard (David Bowie), Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Oliver Kraus (Sia) and Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam), as well as veteran Weepies compatriots Frank Lenz, Eli Thomson, Jon Flaugher, Meg Toohey, and Whynot Jansveld, plus a horn section from New Orleans.

The prophetic “No Trouble” was written prior to learning Deb’s diagnosis. “I don’t need no trouble, but sometimes trouble needs me,” sings Steve; Deb’s vocals were recorded during her first weeks of chemo. The couple continued to write and record throughout treatment, with Deb providing several key vocals far into the year, including title track “Sirens,” captured in one take on a day where Deb really only had one take in her; her vulnerability is tangible.  “We just kept going,” says Deb.  “We also have 3 small children, and were homeschooling, and the effects of chemo blew whole days out of the water.”

The band was able to use their limited studio time as an escape, leading to some of their most joyful tracks ever, including the genre-bending “Fancy Things” and the upbeat “Early Morning Riser,” aided mightily by a fantastic rhythm section and horns.  There’s plenty of heart and comfort for long time Weepies fans too – the deceptively simple “My Little Love,” the gorgeous “Brand New Pair of Wings” and the straight ahead poetry of “River From the Sky.”

After The Weepies had officially finished the album, and Deb was in recovery, they continued to record remotely with their phenomenal backing musicians for fun, eventually adding a cover of Tom Petty’s “Learning to Fly” and a version of Irish balladeer Mark Geary’s “Volunteer” to the final album.

“No one song could capture that year,” says Steve. “16 seems like a lot to release at once, but each song reflects a different angle of that long, suspended moment.  They hang together like a bunch of photographs from a certain time.  It was intense, but there was beauty and inspiration, too.  Deb made it back.  And we’re still here.”

Every Friday at 10 AM, rain or shine, we stop and taste coffee together at our regional training centers. We welcome our friends, customers, and all coffee lovers to these free tastings.  All tasters are welcome; no experience necessary! Each week we choose a coffee or coffees to feature and a complementary brewing method. We guide participants through the tasting and share details about where the coffee comes from and why we love it.  FAQs Who can I contact with questions? Email [email protected], or call 888.238.5282x2 Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? You do not need a printed ticket for Tasting @ 10. Can I purchase coffee or wares at the Tasting? Though we welcome the public to our training center of Friday mornings, we are not a coffee shop, and do not have brewed or whole bean coffee available for purchase.
