(please note - most of these refer to "ceremonies" as that is what I used to call my cacao medicine circles!)
"I feel very fortunate to have been able to both join a group cacao circle and to have had a one-to-one cacao session with Tania. My experiences have been profound and powerful, and at the same time gentle and beautiful. Cacao truly is a medicine of the heart and soul, and I am so grateful that I have had Tania share this with me in her compassionate and caring way. Tania's knowledge of and respect for the culture and traditions that cacao comes from undoubtedly helps to deepen the experience; she creates a space that feels sacred and safe - and that is medicine in itself."
I just wanted to reach out and thank you for sharing your wisdom and expertise in Thai Yoga Massage and Cacao; what a blessing the ceremonies have been, opening my heart in a truly profound way. Tania, you have a gentle power which in the ceremonies and in the Thai yoga massage session (especially with the addition of Cacao) invited an unravelling
and an exploration inwards which reverberated through the rest of the week and into my daily life having a very positive effect on my whole being…. From the very bottom of my heart thank you."

"I don't even know where to begin. I genuinely have never experienced anything like yesterday - I really didn't know what to expect, and I'm so glad I went into it with very few expectations. Honestly, the vulnerability and openness of everyone in the group, everyone sharing their thoughts and experiences...
The whole ceremony felt so special and sacred, and I can't begin to thank you enough for such an amazing experience. It's made me feel so much more mindful about what I do, and also reminded me that we are unique and possess the power to do whatever we want to do...The whole journey was so interesting, and I still can't put into words how it felt!...I will definitely be taking part in another one soon..."

TESTIMONIAL FROM A RECENT 121 CACAO CLIENT:
"I am forever grateful to Tania for introducing me to cacao and its gentle, transformative power. Cacao has supported my spiritual growth and personal development, on a path that I did not even know I had started!I have attended a number of Tania’s cacao ceremonies over the last 3.5 years, each time I have felt my connection with this plant medicine growing deeper. Tania has inspired me to use cacao for my own personal rituals, but I love the energy and support of a group ceremony as well. I undertook a 121 guided cacao ceremony with Tania recently. The experience was just as powerful as those I have received in a group setting, perhaps even more so as the ceremony felt very personal and tailored to my needs. Tania held the space with a gentle yet powerful and wise energy, as she always does. She guided me through the experience so I always felt safe. Her support facilitated integration of the experience post-ceremony; this has helped me work on some personal aspects of my life with which I had been previously struggling. Prior to the cacao ceremony (and within the same session) I received Thai massage therapy from Tania. This is a wonderfully relaxing form of massage therapy and a perfect accompaniment to the 121 cacao ceremony; the whole experience was deeply relaxing and rejuvenating and I came away feeling calm and grounded, with a sense of release and an open heart. Thank you, Tania!"
