Cacao Ceremonies

My Cacao Ceremonies take people back to their natural way of being, taking them out of their busy-non stopping mind back to their body and heart.

What are the cacao ceremonies?

Cacao ceremonies have actually been around for thousands of years, originating back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure cacao is used as a heart-opening medicine to safely experience awakening, revelation, and inner healing.

 

Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, we can connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.

Many cacao ceremony participants report feeling the effects up to 2-3 days after with feelings of peace, joy, lightness, ease and relaxation.

 

The main advantage of drinking cacao versus eating it is that it can be absorbed into your bloodstream faster, especially if consumed on an empty stomach.

A few words about the benefits of cacao:

Raw cacao contains four times more antioxidants than regular dark chocolate and even 20 times more than blackberries.

Besides being rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, cacao is high in iron, zinc, potassium and magnesium.

Cacao stimulates the brain to release neurotransmitters, which can trigger emotions such as euphoria.

When we eat or drink cacao, the body produces a natural chemical related to the adrenal glands called phenylethylamine (PEA). A substance that also appears when we feel excited or in love, causing our pulse to accelerate. It also produces serotonin, which reduces stress and dopamine, which enhances joy and emotional well-being.

 

How is a cacao ceremony with me:

If it is done live, in the same space, I cook the Cacao at home in a state of deep meditation by following how the Spirit of the Cacao would like to be cooked.

 

Depending on the group, Cacao might ask me to add some cinnamon, cardamon, chilly and more sacred spices which will add their own touch to the transformational process of the people!

Then we gather in the meditation hall and enter into a journey of transformation by doing exercises of introspection and drinking the Medicine of Cacao!

 

I usually combine the effect of the plant with introspective exercises, dance, tantra and more (depending on the subject of the seminar). All these in a way that people can feel comfortable to open their hearts, their minds and their souls and get rid of anything they do not need anymore and it does not serve them in their life.

 

During the workshop the Cacao successfully melts the “armor” of the heart and let the unconditional love blossom from deep inside and outside.

 

It awakens our sexual power and reminds us how important is to live a life of bliss and not a stressful life that is based on fulfilling the needs of others more than ourselves. It is a Sacred Teacher that increases our connection to our inner self, opens our heart chakra and allows ecstasy and love to enter our being.

 

It aids in any transformational shift we are working towards, whether we are looking to deepen our understanding of who we are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. In the sacred ceremony, we are free to set any intention we want and the cacao allows us to move towards that goal!

My personal journey with Cacao

I grew up in a family where I learned that all plants, spices, and everything that comes out from Mother Earth has a voice!

 

I learned to listen to the words of coffee, cacao, pepper, cinnamon…

A great plant that has accompanied me for the last ten years on the journey of self-improvement is Cacao.

 

Everything that comes out of the earth has life; it has consciousness, it has a spirit. The spirit of cacao is like the spirit of a wise Guru whose purpose is to guide you from head to heart and from mind to body, helping you discover hidden aspects of yourself and show you how to love!

 

My most profound journey with Cacao began about ten years ago in Spain when I met a beautiful and wise woman who introduced me to cacao’s secrets!

 

She made the cacao, gave me the cup, and asked me to sit under a tree and listen with my heart the plant’s Holy words. Although I could not understand anything she was saying to me, I felt a tingle in my heart telling me to follow her words without too much thinking.

 

I found a tree and sat in its shade. I took the cacao in my hands, smelled it, closed my eyes, and took the first sip. Since then, I entered a path without return! A path that leads me, with every sip, closer to my heart, closer to the truth of my body, closer to my Sacred – Divine nature!

 

From then until today, Cacao is my psychotherapist, my girlfriend, my lover, my mother and my father! Every time I come in contact with this sacred drink, I feel that I am drinking the blood of Mother Earth, who yearns to meet me from inside so that she can embrace me, heal me and show me the way.
