Cacao contains the neurotransmitters serotonin, tryptophan and dopamine. These assist with feelings of well-being, can combat stress and anxiety, and contribute to motivation. Cacao also contains the neuromodulator phenylethylamine (PEA) which helps the body create feelings of excitement and euphoria. Cacao is one of the highest sources of antioxidants and magnesium, is extremely beneficial to heart health, and helps lower blood pressure. Cacao also contains caffenine.

When we combine cacao with powerful breathwork, chanting, and sound healing, we can achieve a sense of calm in the mind, deep connection through an open heart, and witness energy flowing through and around the body.

We begin the journey sharing in drinking the cacao together. We will lead you in warm up movements and a session of powerful breathing with loud music, a short meditation, and then a surrender to sound. Hopefully you will leave feeling energized but also quite relaxed in the body.

Please wear comfortable clothing for sitting and moving. Also please bring a water bottle and blindfold to cover the eyes. Yoga mats and bolsters/blankets will be provided. 

You will leave feeling both energized and grounded. This journey assists in clearing the mind and bringing blood flow and oxygen to your body, and naturally uplifts the spirit. Staying for dinner after helps to further ground and connect with the community.

Come share in the plant medicine community as we connect the spirit of the sacred cacao.  Theobroma Cacao (translated=Food of the Gods) contains many beneficial health properties and has been used as a food for millennia and ceremonially by Mesoamerican cultures. It was once comparable to gold, used in trade and ceremonially to document life-milestones.

When we drink cacao prepared for ceremony using high quality raw cacao beans, the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao activate. There is increased blood flow and oxygen to the brain, heart and skin, the whole body is nourished, awareness and focus is heightened and sensations are intensified. This promotes deep relaxation and often space for emotional release. You may feel a deep sense of joy and peace, a connection to the oneness as well as insights of limiting behaviors, thoughts and feelings that are able to be understood and released within the safe space of ceremony.

Cacao contains the neurotransmitters serotonin, tryptophan and dopamine which assist with feelings of well-being, combat stress and anxiety and contribute to motivation.
