Join us for a Sacred Cacao Ceremony and Shamanic Drum Journey to meet the Elders of the Cacao Plant.
The Spirit of Cacao was one of the most revered of the ancient Mayan Deities. They called Cacao 'The water that runs through the heart'. Chocolate is a Sacred, Medicinal, Psychoactive, Plant and Theobroma or cacao actually means “Food of the Gods”.
Cacao is one of the most powerful, gentle facilitators, teachers and guides on the planet – and it is delicious too! The Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Chocolate for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. In its purest form (unlike much of the chocolate available in the mainstream), it is a powerful assistant for ‘inner work’, creative guidance and so much more.
Chocolate opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life. It promotes powerful journeying and connection with your spiritual wisdom. It creates a stronger connection with the higher self (intuition, soul, God, Goddess etc.). This leads to an enhanced connection with your own power and truth; your divinity. Chocolate is a powerful facilitator allowing you to delve into your pain. Once you FEEL your pain (sadness, anger, grief etc. etc.), you won’t keep manifesting situations to feel these feelings. You live a freer, happier life, without constantly being triggered. Releasing these emotions allows more light, love and magic into your life.
It creates a powerful, otherworldly and deep meditation enabling you to connect with your spiritual nature, accessing the wisdom within. Meditation is much easier and more beneficial; silencing the mind becomes easy – hence the space for healing occurs. It calms the left brain chatter, and allows us to delve more into that ‘no mind’ space of bliss.
The Cacao Blend is created with Cayenne, Cardamom and Organic Vanilla Beans. You may wish to add a natural sweetener in the form of Agave Nectar, which is supplied.
Cayenne and Cardamom are synergists. They help increase blood circulation throughout the body allowing cacao to course through your veins with more efficiency. Theobromine, one of cacao’s main active compounds stimulates blood flow to the brain and to the heart. The amount of oxygen going to your brain can increase up to 40%, blood vessels dilate, your skin floods with oxygen becoming more sensitive.
Many will feel the cacao immediately, feeling a buzz or high within half an hour. The heart opens, there is a feeling of deep love, gratitude, creativity, and expansion, flowing outward from the heart centre. For this reason Cacao has been know to assist in deep emotion release. The open heart connection is also what gives Cacao it’s aphrodisiac reputation. The full effects may last up to 5 hours.
After the drinking ceremony you will then get the opportunity to partake in a shamanic drum journey to your inner heart and connect with the Spirit Elders of the Cacao.
