The Pangaia Party is a barefoot clubparty, monthly held in Club Lite. Always a cacao dance ceremony as the preprogram to the danceparty. Pangaia also delivers cacao dance ceremonies on request to festivals, other parties and private settings. The ceremonies have flavours of shamanism, sometimes theatre, song, contact & tribal dance an other playful elements.
Origin of the name Pangaia ; The name “Pangaea” is derived from Ancient Greek pan (all, entire, whole”) and Gaia (Mother Earth, land”). Pangaea was the last supercontinent to have existed and fell apart 175 million years ago into Laurasia and Gondwana. It was the home of the first dinosaurs and dragonflies.

Third Eye Vision
After a not so easy childhood, she decided to abandon my psychology studies at the university and move to India. There she got in touch with vegetarianism, yoga, gurus and she had my first spiritual experience with…..bhang lassi (cannabisdrink).
In 2000 she discovered Ayahuasca and this changed her life completely. Strong healing kicked in and while she shed lot’s of tears she also felt like coming home, while singing. Soon she started to receive music…
In one remarkable session (still mentioned in David Wolfe’s book Amazing Grace) where she prayed for healing of health problems, she had strong visions of the rainforest and a deep longing to connect with nature. She was inspired by David Wolfe to embrace a raw food diet and she lived in an eco community for a while.
Back in Holland she became a raw food chef and she started my blog & website Lauralevensvuur. In her little home restaurant she enjoyed the intimacy of small groups. The healing power of good food was what stayed with her.
In 2006 she came in contact with the power of raw cacao as David Wolfe was back in town with the first raw cacao beans and some manuka honey. She was at the birth of the Chocolateclub; the first all-night long-on-raw chocolate high-parties !! Superfoods were new at that time and was trendy only for a small group of crazy early adaptors. It was a fun and awesome time and her heart got conquered strongly by the effect of raw cacao smoothies. She missed that real bite though and as expensive raw chocolate bars had to be ordered from NY, she started experimenting in my own kitchen.
She decided to go for it and make a living as a chocolatier.In her third eye she saw this chocolate idea exploding into a success and she started to make my own first chocolate bars. That’s how raw chocolate brand Lovechock was born.
As the company grew very fast and became too much of a big business, with too much business stuff.
To keep her rebel soul spirit she decided to leave the company in 2015 and start something NEW. She combines now my endless chocolate passion with the other, so many, good things in life. Blending cacao with dance music, play, healing and isn’t that the ultimate thing ??? With Pangaia she is on her path to explore the essence and alchemy of cacao deeply and weaving traditions and cultures together.
Oyé Pangaia !
