It’s probably safe to say that you have heard of Cacao.
Over the last few years, Cacao has been popping up in just about every alternative dessert recipe, from bliss balls and sweet potato brownies to the weird and wonderful avocado mousse.
This humble plant has become a staple in every health food junkie’s pantry and with an impressively long list of health benefits, it’s not hard to see why.
Higher in antioxidants than any other widely consumed food, Cacao supports immune function and helps to neutralize free radicals that can damage cells and lead to more serious diseases like cancer and atherosclerosis.
High in magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium, Cacao more than lives up to its superfood status and believe it or not, this doesn't even scratch the surface...
The real magic of Cacao is not so widely known.
One of the most ancient and sacred plant medicines there is, Cacao has been used medicinally and ceremonially by shamans and healers for thousands of years.
Just to be clear, I am not talking about your run of the mill, supermarket cocoa powder or even the raw Cacao powder that you find at Wholefoods.
I am talking about 100% pure, unprocessed Ceremonial Grade Cacao beans.
Yep, I'm a chocolate snob, and I'm okay with it, we all should be!
This plant is like gold in its native home of Latin America, it's active ingredient Theobromine literally translates to "Food of the Gods."
And just like gold, it was reserved for the aristocratic, politically powerful and spiritual ritual domains of priests and shamans.
So how does it work?
Cacao’s real magic lies in its ability to heal, not only our physical body but our emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual bodies too.
When drunk in ceremony, Cacao can help us to switch off from our current reality and journey into the often neglected silence within.
Within this space and silence comes the clarity we need to help us understand who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us.
It has a simple yet potent ability to take you on a deep inner journey of your psyche, heart & soul.
Each ceremony is different, each individual brings something different to the space. We share, we laugh, we cry, and we open our hearts to infinite love and possibility.
Whether you’re looking to release emotional blockages, find some creative inspiration or simply want to feel GOOD, a Cacao ceremony is a perfect way to re-align and connect to your heart.
