A Cacao Ceremony held in the middle of an Herbal sanctuary
Celebrate the fullness of Summer away from the city and the beltway and join us in the magnificent Sacred Roots Herbal Sanctuary of Hillary and Keir for a potent Cacao Ceremony. Come ready to dance around the Fire and under the Full Moon with intention. Bring a special object for the altar if you wish. Cacao Medicine, also known as the “Food of the Gods, is a facilitator and will invite you rather than push you on a spiritual journey. Cacao is the Food for the Shift!!!
Cacao (chocolate in its purest form) is a plant medicine that has been used by the Mayans for centuries both by the Shamans and people in their everyday lives. An Indigenous Mayan myth tells us that whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, Cacao comes out from the rainforest to open peoples hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony.
The cacao we use comes from wild Criollo trees and has a high vibration and a spiritual potency that you can experience with each cup. Cacao is a superfood with nutritional and medicinal value, and over 300 nutrients. One of its main active ingredients is Theobromine, which literally translates as God-Food, and facilitates the release of dopamine, the pleasure hormone. Cacao supports memory, immunity, heart health and helps relieve stress and depression. It contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food on the planet.
Each ceremony is held in Oneness Consciousness and is offered with Gratitude for the Medicine. We tune in before each event and listen to what wants to come forth. It may include meditation, chanting, guided soul journey, movement, sharing circle and more. Cacao is a facilitator and will invite you rather than push you on a spiritual journey.
