Immerse yourself in the healing powers of Sacred Cacao.
I have always had a love for all things herbal medicine. I fell in love with herbal medicine during my naturopath training. I have a little joke, saying that I married herbal medicine. And then I was initiated into the sacred ritual of Cacao Ceremony, and my love affair began.
Cacao (Theobroma which translates to ‘food of the gods’ Cacao) became an intoxicating temptress, mistress, goddess energy, that I needed to follow and embrace. It allowed me a deep divine connection to the feminine energy and the heart centre. And allowed me to go deeper into my healing.
Its energy has the ability to bring about the union of body, mind and soul.
It sits within what I call the triad: Creativity, Spirituality and Sexuality. Allowing us to experience and enhance all 3 aspects in our lives.
It opens the door to the heart and allows us to see inside. As well as opening us to greater levels of consciousness.
Ways to work with Cacao
Cacao Ceremony is the perfect way to connect with the healing power of Cacao in a group setting. Each Ceremony/Workshop will have a different focus. See EVENTS HERE to find out about upcoming workshops and events.
For those who want to go deeper, I am offering Sacred Healing work with Cacao Ceremony. This is a one on one healing session, where all of my training combines (energy and body work) to facilitate deeper connection to your heart space and allowing for deeper healing work. It allows you to find the areas where there is restriction, repression, pain, feelings of hurt or limitations, and move through them. Stretching, massage and energy work may all be used in a healing session.
Please contact me if you would like to know more about a one on one session, or to book in.
What you might expect from a Cacao Ceremony
Everyone is different… but here is what some people experience:
A deep sense of calm, joy and peace
A sense of ecstatic energy (I personally have felt this many times!)
A shift in your energy centres
Feelings of contentment
Connection to self
Connection to ‘source’
Deep emotional/soul healing
If you would like to add a Cacao Ceremony to your next workshop or event, please feel free to contact me to discuss how you can include this magical healing.
Where I source my Cacao from
I source my Ceremonial Cacao from suppliers (depending on the type we are using for each ceremony) who work directly with the farmers and producers. They work in sustainable, direct trade with the farmers, ensuring the highest quality and ethical standards.
All of the cacao I use is produced in the traditional way: where the pods are fermented and then picked through, hand peeled by women and then processed on ancient mills (only used to produce cacao), where the paste is directly packaged and shipped to suppliers.
We only use pure Cacao Paste of the highest standards. Nothing has been refined, added or altered.
Why is Cacao so good for you?
Cacao is known as a Superfood. It is high in antioxidants (higher than most foods), high in magnesium (which helps with muscle relaxation, which is why an enhanced feeling of relaxation occurs for most people) and is a vasodilator (which strengthens the heart and improves circulation).
It is also high in amino acids (such as tryptophan – my favourite) that help produce neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters can help boost our mood and bring about a euphoric state.
It increases nutrient availability to the brain, and as it is not heat treated or heavily produced, it maintains its vitamins, minerals and other healing compounds.
It not only helps us on a physical level, but also helps us connect to the spiritual qualities inside us and cacao.
