WHY COME TO A CACAO CEREMONY?
It could be that you feel a longing to connect with the "sacred" in a way you maybe haven't been able to so far, and experience a non-"religious" sacred setting.
You might feel drawn to nature/earth-based spiritual traditions.
You might be curious about plant medicines and their spiritual and/or healing potential, but also not wanting to ingest an extreme psychoactive plant medicine.
Maybe there's a particular issue you wish to look at in your life, something you can't let go of, an experience from the past or a pattern you keep playing out in your life, which you know is blocking you from experiencing greater wellbeing & flourishing.
Perhaps you are seeking guidance or clarity & perspective, & would like to find a way to access greater insight on your situation.
Perhaps you wish you could be more intuitive, connecting with your intuition & tapping into the "higher" levels of awareness which our everyday overactive, analytical, rational minds often prevent us from accessing.
You may be seeking a way to open up your heart - perhaps you sense that constrictive emotions such as pain, sadness, fear, anger, grief & anxiety are stopping you from being as open, joyful, honest, loving, expressive & brave as you would like to be.
Or...maybe you are in a good place and are simply curious about plant medicines - maybe you've heard about cacao specifically, or else you might have heard of other medicines, but are wary about the possible effects of taking a strong psychoactive which might require a long, tough journey to integrate afterwards.
Maybe it's all of the above!
Cacao is both safe and legal. It is not only recognised as a nutritional powerhouse (a true superfood); since at least ancient Mesoamerican times, cacao's heart-stimulating properties have been known to humans, and ceremonial-grade cacao possesses an energy, a vibrancy, an essence not present in more processed cacao-derivatives (including "raw" cacao powder & paste, which is not as raw as you might think, though still very nutritious as a food rather than a plant medicine). With cacao & all other plant medicines, when consumed intentionally, in a sacred space, we can connect with the spiritual essence of the plant. (More about ancient cacao spiritual traditions here.)
Everything about the ceremonial space I create is intended to cultivate an experience of being safely held and guided, so that you can relax on all levels, feeling able to share & be open to the experience, open to what arises when you relax and allow the rational mind to switch off so that the more intuitive, expansive states can be accessed.
Please note: I offer these ceremonies as an opportunity for women to experience this heart medicine in a healing, safe, held space; I ask that you respect this and please come in this spirit. This is a sacred ceremony for personal healing and spiritual exploration, not a training or workshop. My ceremonies are for those sincerely seeking a healing experience with the loving assistance of the cacao spirit. Thank you!
