The mystical Sacred Cacao Ceremonies are giving us Divine opportunities to connect with our hearts, to heal and honor Mother Gaia, ourselves and all lives, to celebrate and feel the blissfulness of all that it is.
What are the Sacred Cacao Ceremonies?
Cacao Ceremonies have actually been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and inner healing. Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, euphoric states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.
Is cacao the same as chocolate?
Not exactly, cacao used in a cacao ceremony is different from regular chocolate we eat. Unlike what you might expect, it doesn’t taste anything like hot chocolate, so it might shock you when you first try it. It is a natural plant medicine and the cacao beans are what goes into the chocolate we are familiar with. Ritual cacao is made from ground cacao beans, water, cacao butter and a tiny bit of maple syrup, all mixed into a liquid, actually very bitter but naturally high in iron, magnesium and B-complex vitamins.
What happens in a Cacao Ceremony?
In Cacao ceremonies people usually sit in a circle, set intentions, pray, sing together with heartfelt music or sound healing and then dance ecstatically or share as a group together.
It is a fun, uplifting experience in a safe and open community.

Raw cacao has been used for centuries to heal the mental, physical and spiritual body.

Cacao ceremony benefits
Cacao ceremonies are a type of shamanic healing – which is one of the oldest holistic healing practices used by indigenous cultures all over the world. These types of healing ceremonies work with re balancing energies in the body to regain health. However, unlike other shamanic experiences, drinking cacao will not make you hallucinate or give you some sort of ‘out-of-body’ psychedelic experience. Cacao instead, is used to gently touch your heart and to guide you into an inner journey deep into the emotional center of our body – our heart chakra.
