Cacao Ceremony

Cacao Ceremony

Honoring the Wisdom Keepers

A cacao ceremony is first and foremost a ritual that we give respect to while recognizing that it is part of the culture and the ancient traditions of the indigenous communities. 

What is a Cacao Ceremony?

It is a meditation, an invitation to share in community. Made out of the same beans used to make chocolate, ceremonial cacao holds space for us to connect with our inner being. It gives us clarity when feeling unclear, focus when we are feeling scattered and stuck. It’s the perfect ally when we are in need of releasing emotional blockages as its energy is soothing and provides a feeling of being held. It is a gentle, compassionate heart opener that creates a safe space for sharing and receiving.

What is a Cacao Ceremony Like?

In this beautiful gathering, may it be big or small we have an altar adorned with flowers, candles, cacao pods and other elements from the Earth. Created is a delicate space for reverence to the element of the sacred fire and an offering of the medicine of cacao. We connect to our light within, we learn about the tradition, invite the participants to partake in ceremony. As we get ready to drink the cacao we set clear intentions, we honor the medicine by blessing it. There is an invocation to the spirit of cacao, a sharing of why does cacao connect us to our heart. We are held by the plant medicine in space of love, gratitude and openness. 

Depending on the size of the group and the theme of the ceremony we may incorporate one or some of these: Chanting, sound therapy, dancing, breath work, Reiki, yoga, writing or an activity.

We close this sacred space by thanking the elements, our light within. 

What makes it Ceremonial Cacao?

It comes from heirloom strand beans that have been grown with the intention to be used for ceremony. It is ethically sourced and every step of the process from the tree to the cup has been handled with utmost respect and love. Unlike regular cacao, ceremonial cacao has not been defatted, its in the fat where all the nutrients are! When you drink the medicine you are having the cacao in its purest, raw form.
