Cacao Ceremonies are becoming more and more popular all around the world.
Raw organic cacao has been used for rituals and ceremonies by indiginous people from Meso- and South America for thousands of years. They called cacao "the food of the gods" and believe that there is a benevolent spirit working through the plant which they call "Mama Cacao".
Some share the legend that "Mama Cacao" has come back now to support all of humanity in this time of great shifts and transitions to re-connect and harmonize with the earth and all it's beeings.
With the quality of a loving, nurturing mother, cacao can support us gently to open the closed doors of our hearts, release emotional and energetic blockages and create an overall feeling of happiness, peace and even bliss.
What people can experience during our cacao ceremonies depends on their openness towards the experience and their willingness to connect with the plant spirit. How sensitive people are to substances in general will also make a difference as well as how connected they already are to their bodies and emotions.
During our ceremonies we serve a warm traditional ceremonial brew made of raw organic cacao paste melted in warm water with a mix of traditional spices added. The drink serves as a catalyst to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. We take you on a guided journey where you become more sensitive and aware of whats going on inside and outside of yourself.
Our intention for the ceremony is to co-create a sacred space where we can tap deeper into ourselfes and our inner landscapes. We invite you to ground, relax and re-connect with nature trough a guided Meditation and a shamanic Sound Healing Journey and Contact Dance Experience.
