Party of the Gods
Cacao ceremonies have been practiced for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, 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.
Cacao ceremonies vary depending on the ceremony facilitator (shaman). People usually sit in a circle and 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.
What you can experience during a cacao ceremony:
- A heart opening journey of oneness, love and ecstasy
- Healing therapy – releasing blocks, recognizing patterns, following your heart
- Finding a connection to your highest self, your own power and truth
- A shamanic or spiritual journey
- A space to enter into meditation – being able to silence the mind, connect to the wisdom and spirit within you
- A balance of masculine and feminine energies in the body
- Enhanced creativity
Health benefits of Cacao
Raw cacao has been used for centuries to heal the mental, physical and spiritual body. It is a natural and ancient plant medicine, with a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and is a powerful antioxidant. Cacao also increases blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to the brain as well as induces the release of feel-good endorphins. It enhances the immune system and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.
Cacao is often used to change your perspective, enabling you to recognize and let go of repeated patterns or bad habits, release energetic blockages and what no longer serves you. Naturally packed with caffeine, cacao gives you a burst of energy that helps you focus and improve your memory and is said to be a big creativity enhancer and facilitator of deep inner meditation and connections.
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 rebalancing 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 (Anahata) chakra.
