What is a Cacao Ceremony?

 

Cacao carries the frequencies of love, balance & compassion, allowing a deep, loving connection with yourself, others & nature.

What is a Cacao Ceremony?

Cacao ceremonies have actually been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance.

A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect with yourself and your purpose and to open your heart. It can help to support life changes and decisions, whether you are looking to change a job or relationship, deepen your understanding of who you are or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao opens you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.

Drinking cacao will not make you hallucinate or give you some sort of ‘out-of-body’ psychedelic experience. Cacao is used to touch your heart gently and to guide you into an inner journey with yourself and mother earth.

Within our cacao ceremonies, there is no pressure to drink all the cacao; you are welcome to follow your intuition and drink the amount you wish. We also welcome people who don't wish to drink cacao but want to experience the sacred circle and ceremony; simply let us know beforehand, and we'll prepare a special herbal tea for you to enjoy.
