Cacao Ceremony Enter the jungle of your heart Book a Session What is a Cacao Ceremony? This is a 2-hour heart opening experience where we connect, play, reflect and relax. You will be guided out of your busy thinking mind into your heart through sound, movement, exercises to foster connection and a heart awakening relaxation sound bath. Cacao has a rich history in ancient Mesoamerican civilizations. Known as ‘Food of the gods’ it’s considered to be sacred and was used in rituals, ceremonies and even as currency. In 2010, a global community emerged using Cacao in new ways in ceremonies. A Cacao Ceremony is not religious, it is simply a space to gather to come into deeper connection with others and Self. Book a Session What are the benefits of a Cacao Ceremony? In a Cacao Ceremony you will be guided out of your head into your heart. The purpose of a Cacao Ceremony is to lead us towards an open-hearted state. When we only stay in the noisy chatter of the mind, we are disconnected from our authentic Self. This can lead to stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and dis-ease. If we allow ourselves to slow down and sink into our hearts, we begin to open our hearts. When we are in the open-hearted state, we are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident, courageous and clear. This are the 7 Cs as described by Richard Schwartz, founder of the Internal Family Systems Model. Book a Session "In an open hearted state – the state of your authentic Self – we have a deep and grounded sense of peace and an ever-growing confidence that we can handle what life gives us. We feel at home.” Hilary Jacobs Hendel, ‘It’s Not Always Depression’ Ceremonial Grade Cacao There are also benefits of consuming Cacao. We serve Ceremonial grade Cacao from family organic farms in Southern Belize. They have been very minimally processed, hence retaining its nutrients. Cacao is a superfood and contains many vital minerals that are especially good for heart health. Cacao is also a good dietary source of magnesium, also known as the relaxer mineral which eases tension. It contains theobromine which is a mild stimulant that can boost your mood, leaving you feeling warm and uplifted. It also boosts your body’s natural production of feel-good hormones. This unique experience can be enjoyed alone, with a partner or with friends. It is also ideal for community and corporate team building. The experience will leave you calm and uplifted, with a sense of connection to others. It allows you to tune into your intuition and gain more self-awareness.
