Cacao Ceremony helps us connect with the bliss and beauty within. You are invited to open the doorway of the heart so the healing Spirit of Cacao can support the journey toward your inner-most self where wisdom and love are held.
We’ll celebrate this journey of the heart with a specially prepared elixir of Cacao, a guided heart opening meditation, and healing Sound Meditations with crystal singing bowls and other sound medicine instruments.
-Eat lightly before the ceremony (3-4 hours before) avoiding dairy, soy, stimulants and alcohol as these foods will interfere with the medicinal properties of the Cacao.
-Arrive 15 minutes prior to starting time.
-Bring a bottle of drinking water.
-Yoga mats and blankets will be available for sitting and resting on the floor, however, you may bring extra items of your own if needed to be comfortable.
-You may bring a small item to rest on the altar to receive blessing during the ceremony. This could include a photo, crystal or other item representing someone or something important to you.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Ceremonial Cacao is not for everyone as there are contraindications. They include Pregnancy, Heart Disease including High Blood Pressure, and use of Antidepressants such as SSRI or MAOI.
The Elixir is sometimes prepared with Coconut Milk, Date Sugar or Maple Syrup, and small amounts Cinnamon, Cardamom, and Cayenne. If you have sensitivity to any of these foods, please email Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org so consideration can be taken during preparation.
