Event description

Description

One of humankind’s greatest sources of pleasure and indulgence, the history of cacao’s use in ritual can be traced back nearly 2000 years. Its botanical name Theobroma cacao literally means food of the gods. Packed with antioxidants, proteins, vitamins and minerals, Cacao also contains small amounts of the ‘bliss molecule’ anandamide which activates our endocannabiniod systems and may produce divine and joyful sensations.

Cacao is a beautiful heart-energy healing plant that allows us to drop from our heads and into our hearts, from thoughts to feelings, allowing us to access our wisdom and deep intuition that is often hidden from us during normal every day life.

The energy of cacao can be very helpful for our self work, helping us examine the places deep within us that might be holding us back, in helping us change the way we do things, so we can step up, to be strong, to sit fully in alignment and in our power of who we truly are as conscious creators. You may experience some of the following during your journeying with cacao.

  • Deep relaxation

  • A heart opening

  • A sense of peace and well-being

  • A connection to your inner voice

  • Gentle visions and guidance

  • An emotional release

  • A heightening of your senses

  • Clarity and stillness

We will drink a ceremonial dose of Cacao, experiencing it’s warmth and presence in the body, then lie down, letting the plant allies do their work with you, with soothing sounds of the singing bowl accompanying our time together.

There is nothing for you to do as you take an inner voyage with the Cacao spirit as your guide.

Afterwards, we have a sharing circle, a safe held space, where we can journal and share anything we feel called to do so. Spontaneous emotions may (but not always) arise, and this is part of the clearing process. While this may sound intimidating, our circle is a non pressurised, safe environment and many people find, through the medicine of cacao, that a warm, peaceful space of ease and comfort is created, where we feel held and joyful, making it a very conducing space to do so.

We then close with some grounding biscuits and possibly a herbal tea or water. it is recommended to stay well hydrated after imbibing cacao.

We use the Criollo & Trinitario species of Cacao at our meetings.

A note on safety. Cacao is not suitable for ritual dosage in pregnancy or if you are taking antidepressants.

Please let me know if this is relevant for you as we may be able to make alternative arrangements. Cacao also contains a small amount of caffeine and due to its chemistry produces a more grounding energy than the buzzy headed energy of coffee. However, if you are sensitive to caffeine please let us know and we can advise on reduced dosage or substitution.

Please bring a bottle of water and a journal and eye pillow if you wish.
