Cacao ceremonies have been around for thousands of years, performed by the indigenous tribes of Central America (including the Mayan's and the Aztec's). Cacao was then known as 'The Food of the God's', holding many medicinal, healing and spiritual properties.

Specifically known for it's heart opening properties, cacao is still drank ceremonially in circle today, to receive its many wonderful benefits.


Benefits of Ceremonial Cacao:

  • Helps us to release old stories or patterns that no longer serve us.

  • Emotional and spiritual healing (since Cacao is the foremost spirit medicine for the heart, encouraging love and forgiveness to enter and radiate through us at ever deeper levels, allowing healing and transformation to occur).

  • Helps us to connect to the unknown aspects of ourselves, and establish a profound awareness, allowing us to live better with grace and flow.

  • Increased blood flow to the brain creates more mental sharpness, agility, awareness and focus.

  • Cacao acts as a powerful natural anti-depressants by reducing physical and emotional stress

The Workshop:

In this workshop we will begin with a heart opening Yoga Flow led by Maddie, in order to prepare ourselves to receive the cacao in a state of peace an inner calm. We will then be led through a guided meditation by Olaf, before receiving the Cacao ceremony held by Monika.
