Our Cacao Ceremonies started in the Autumn of 2019 and were born from two factors;
Cacao has been used within ancient Mayan traditions for spiritual and ceremonial purpose for thousands of years. The scientific name for Cacao is Theobroma Cacao which literally translates to ‘Food of the Gods.’
Cacao ceremonies are part of an ancient shamanic healing practice which incorporate the consumption of cacao as a plant medicine.
Unlike some Shamanic Plant Medicines, cacao is not hallucinogenic. It is a gentle yet powerful plant medicine, which opens the heart chakra and helps us to deepen connection with our higher self, our own power, truth and courage and helps us to let go of beliefs and stories which no longer serve us energetically.
In our ceremonies, whichever option you may decide upon, we particularly emphasise the importance of self-love, creating space for yourself and allowing yourself to honour and celebrate your soul. Sitting in a sacred circle with others is a very powerful experience, where we set intentions and share our dreams and our stories and talk about our fears and our blocks. It is very healing to share in a circle in this way, as it helps us to transcend our fears, reminding us that we are all interconnected, and nobody is truly a stranger. Holding space in these circles to support individuals on their personal journey gives us great joy, it is a service which we feel humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to be a part of.
Cacao is a vasodilator that widens the blood vessels, increasing the flow of blood to the heart. Cacao is also rich in nutrients such as iron, magnesium and zinc and a rich source of flavanols such as antioxidants.
Cacao is also known to contain a number of mood-boosting chemicals, such as dopamine and endorphin and also anandamide, which is known as the bliss molecule.
In delivering our in-person ceremonies, we were ovewhelmed with how deeply the experience was received. As time has gone on, we have dug deeper into our purpose and felt inspired to find ways to make the experience more widely accessible from both a logistical and a price point perspective.
