Sacred Cacao Ceremony

Ceremonial Cacao is a sacred medicine used in ceremony as a catalyst to open the heart.

This magical drink allows us to relax our mind, release the stresses of the day and settle more into our body.

When used before meditation, Cacao can significantly amplify your ability to calm your mind. It can also heighten how you feel and sense energy moving through your body. It truly allows us to slow down and feel more connected to ourselves, and many people describe it as a warm hug for the body & mind 🙂

What is Cacao?

Ceremonial Cacao is a delicious superfood, jam-packed full of nutrients and anti-oxidants, and is particularly high in Magnesium.

Cacao works to calm the nervous system and bring us into a deeper state of peace - that is, connected to an open heart. Cacao increases blood circulation, enhances digestion, increases your energy level and deepens your connection to your energetic body. This deepening connection to your own energy body & heart, along with gentle relaxation of the mind, allows a deeper spiritual connection to emerge. In meditation, you may be able to actually feel energy moving through your body, and a deeper connection to source energy.

Cacao can also bring a strong sense of clarity. For someone struggling to see a situation clearly or to make a decision, by softening and relaxing the mind, Cacao can help you come into deeper clarity about situations in your life.

Cacao also allows creativity to flow through your body, and is beautifully paired with a practice like Ecstatic dance or Breathwork, which is what we offer in our Women's Retreats.

Where do I source Cacao?

I have the honor of working with ceremonial-grade Cacao that comes from family-owned farms in Peru (Chuncho Cacao) & Guatemala (Criollo Cacao).

The company I work closely with is KAKAO, a non-profit organization that works to bring sacred Cacao to people all over the world. They provide a beautiful medicine that allows the heart to gently open to receive all of the benefits of Cacao.
