Due to safe distancing guidelines, we can only cater to 10 guests.
A Cacao Ceremony is a heart opening ceremony. We gather in sacred circle, coming into a deeper and more intimate connection with ourselves and others. Cacao’s heart-opening properties are often attributed to its high levels of theobromine, a mild stimulant that helps to temporarily boost your mood and the body’s natural production of serotonin and dopamine. The active ingredients in Cacao help to relax the nervous system as well as the busy “thinking mind”. We serve ceremonial grade Cacao from family organic farms in Southern Belize.
Celeste learnt how to facilitate a cacao ceremony from her teacher Joseph White Owl, who is one of the Indigenous Peoples of North America. He has combined aspects of his Nations culture and other learnings within the cacao ceremony. They met in Ubud where he has been living for the last 3 years, facilitating hundreds of sacred cacao ceremonies at the Pyramids of Chi. The cacao ceremony that she facilitates has been co-created under Joseph’s guidance.
It is a 2 hour experience that includes movement, sound, exercises to foster connection and a heart awakening guided meditation sound bath designed to take us from the busy thinking state of the mind into the feeling state of the heart.
