Cacao is 'The Food for the Shift'. An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people's hearts and return us all to harmony.
Ceremonial grade cacao is a sacred medicine also known as the “blood of the heart” is an important, powerful, and previously overlooked teacher, facilitator, and medicine-plant. Ceremonial Cacao partners with you on your journey... experience chocolate as the magical partner it is!
The Cacao Spirit ‘returns’ – from a long history with Indigenous peoples.
WHAT IS CACAO?
Literally translated as ‘Food of the Gods’,
Since the ancient Civilisations of the Mayans and Aztecs, Cacao has been used in rituals and ceremonies as a tool for journeying deep inside of the self, allowing spirit to move through and guide us.
Cacao is one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods and provides many medicinal benefits.
It contains more antioxidants than any other food on the planet.
It stimulates the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and anandamide (also known as the BLISS chemical) leading to feelings of euphoria.
It relaxes the muscles and balances the nervous system whilst focusing the mind and activating the heart.
The cacao we will use is of the highest quality grown & harvested in Peru specifically for ceremonial use by Ashaninka families. Directly sourced from ancient Cacao gardens in the Rio Ene region.
Please note: Many antidepressants do NOT mix with the tryptophan and MAO (Monoamine Oxidase) Inhibitors in this cacao… ��Google your medication!
You will arrive to a Beautiful candle lit Sacred Space where we will reconnect through Movement Medicine practices & Ritual to access the power of the Sacred Feminine.
The Goddess within...
In all her facets SHE is SO WELCOME!
