THE LEGACY

An Indigenous myth recalls that when the Earth and its people are out of balance, the cacao/sacred chocolate will come out of the rainforest to open peoples hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony and balance. Cacao can be utilized to expedite inner work, facilitating creative energy, yet its different to other plant medicines in that it does not carry you away on a journey, but rather supports you wherever you are, amplifying whatever is happening inside. The ceremony is an experience in multi-dimensional group energy.

MEDICINAL AFFECTS

 Ceremonial Cacao is strong and bitter; it detoxifies and cleanses the liver. With over 300 individual ingredients, cacao truly is a superfood. It is amongst the richest sources of magnesium. After the release of dopamine, endorphins, tryptophan, phenylethylamine and serotonin, is the release of anandamide. When you consume Cacao prepared for Ceremony using high quality raw cacao beans (like what we bring from Lake Atitlan, Guatemala) all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in Cacao become particularly active. Most people report feeling a sensation of peace or extreme focus in the safe open space of the ceremony with the elixir of love.

TRANSFORMATION & HEALING

Cacao serves a facilitator for deep meditation and inward journeying if taken with trained facilitators in the right context and desire to connect with our higher consciousness. Together we feel supported focus and discover that when we let go we are thrust into the present, our patterns, and our limiting ideas no longer restrict us. Letting go is a choice made moment by moment with sincerity and presence saw how much energy we use in protecting and suppressing ourselves, and how much energy is released when we reveal ourselves, takes us to the spaces inside where transformation and healing are welcome. 


For me, a major advantage to ceremonial cacao is that participants, once beyond the novelty of having their brain flushed with the 30-40% greater blood flow that cacao brings, are able to hold a good multidimensional focus for at least 4-5 hours, allowing more time for deep work with much less mental or emotional fatigue. Many find that as their meditational focus-holding ability improves and they learn to work on other levels. A second major advantage is that ceremonial cacao makes it much easier (for those who are willing) to deeply access their emotional body, pain body, or density on the dark shadow side... or ready expansion and higher dimensional connection on the light shadow side. Especially in a vibrationally supportive non-fixing and non-judgmental setting, many go considerably deeper than they otherwise would...
