Let us slow down, tune in, and drop into the body to nourish where it’s needed.

Feel free to bring an item for the altar in the center of the ceremony circle (this can be a stone/crystal or anything of importance to you)
We will follow this up with a yin session to integrate the benefits of our ceremony 🙏🏽

᯾ CACAO CEREMONY HISTORY ᯾
Cacao ceremonies have actually been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal, and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure cacao is used as a heart-opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation, and inner healing. Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set, and once consumed, euphoric states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.
᯾ IS CACAO THE SAME AS CHOCOLATE? ᯾
Not exactly, cacao used in a cacao ceremony is different from the regular chocolate we eat. Unlike what you might expect, it doesn’t taste anything like hot chocolate, so it might shock you when you first try it. It is a natural plant medicine and the cacao beans are what goes into the chocolate we are familiar with – but usually only 20-30%. Ritual cacao is made from ground cacao beans, water, cacao butter, and a tiny bit of sugar, all mixed into a liquid, actually very bitter but naturally high in iron, magnesium, and B-complex vitamins.
᯾ WHAT HAPPENS IN A CACAO CEREMONY? ᯾
Cacao ceremonies vary depending on the ceremony facilitator (or shaman). People usually sit in a circle and set intentions, sit/lie down and enjoy sound healing music, and then share anything that arises (thoughts/emotions/sensations). It is a fun, uplifting experience in a safe and open community.
