What is a cacao ceremony?

Chocolate in a ceremonial setting… surely not? Definitely. A cacao ceremony is a ceremonial gathering centered around the sacred plant medicine of cacao, known for its heart-opening and consciousness-expanding properties. The roots of cacao ceremonies can be traced back to the ancient Mayan civilization, where cacao was considered a powerful plant ally and used as a community medicine to open up the heart. In a cacao ceremony, participants come together in a sacred space to connect with the spirit of cacao and engage in a guided ceremony facilitated by trained practitioners.

During the ceremony, a ceremonial-grade cacao is prepared and consumed in the form of a warm, rich elixir. The cacao used in these ceremonies is distinct from regular chocolate, as it is minimally processed and retains its natural properties. The cacao we use is sourced from specific regions known for high-quality beans, such as Guatemala, where Mayan traditions have been preserved.

Cacao ceremonies are an opportunity for self-reflection, healing, and transformation. They provide a space for individuals to reconnect with their inner selves, explore their emotions, and gain clarity and insights. The presence of the group amplifies the collective energy, fostering a sense of unity and support.

It is important to note that cacao ceremonies are not intended to be recreational or hallucinogenic experiences. The focus is on the spiritual and heart-centered aspects of the cacao plant, promoting personal growth, self-discovery, and connection to a higher consciousness.

What happens during a cacao ceremony?

The ceremony typically begins with an opening circle, where participants set intentions for the experience. Guided meditations, breathwork, chanting, music, dance and sound healing are powerful aspects of the journey. The cacao elixir is consumed mindfully, allowing its energetic and physical effects to unfold. As the ceremony progresses, participants may experience a range of sensations, emotions, and insights. The heart-opening qualities of cacao can facilitate a sense of deep connection, emotional release, ecstatic states of joy and a heightened state of awareness. Embrace a space of authenticity and vulnerability, fostering meaningful connections and a sense of support within a compassionate community. This gathering is a sacred communion with yourself, others, and the interconnected web of life, where hearts meet, souls ignite, and lasting connections are formed.
