"An indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rain forest to open people's hearts and return the planet to harmony" - Keith, the Chocolate Shaman
The Mayans believed cacao to be the "Food of the Gods."
Cacao beans are the seeds of the cacao tree, and are used to make chocolate. To do so, the beans are processed, sugar and other ingredients added, and most of the nutritional and energetic properties of the raw cacao is lost. To keep the integrity of the cacao, and receive the benefits in ceremony, we use minimally processed Cacao.
In ceremony, we drink a hot cacao drink to connect with the Spirit of Cacao, your angels and guides, and hold space for healing, insights and transformation. Cacao is a gentle plant medicine. You will not hallucinate or receive any conscious-altering effects. Rather, you will feel your heart open, concentrated, and happy. Sometimes you even feel euphonic! Cacao allows you to focus for several hours at a time and enhances your creativity, so deep transformation can take place.
