What is cacao? 🍫
Apart from being a superfood with a wealth of health properties, cacao (or raw “chocolate”) is a powerful plant teacher that has been used for centuries for her spiritual and energetic properties.
Cacao’s scientific name is Theobroma cacao which translates to ‘food for the Gods’. Historically, cacao has been used in ceremonies by the ancestors of Central America and later by the Aztecs and Mayas as a ritualistic medicine.
Today, ceremonial grade cacao is cacao that has been cultivated according to traditional methods with the intention of being used in the ceremony.
What is a cacao ceremony? 🍫
The ceremony traditionally involves creating a sacred environment, setting an intention and allowing an energetic process to unfold around that intention. Setting an intention is the most important part of cacao ceremony preparation. Come to the ceremony with the intention to:
- Begin with a positive note
- Process an old wound
- Call in a new opportunity
- Connect more deeply to a creative outlet.
Because cacao is a ‘connection facilitator’, she aids in any transformational shift you are working towards. So the side effects of a cacao ceremony can be quite powerful if you permit.
The Positive Impacts of Cacao on Mood 🍫
Drinking pure cacao has therapeutic health benefits, including creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection. Cacao contains beneficial neurotransmitters and neuro-modulators already present in our brains. You may feel expansive, blissful, connected to self and/or others, inspired, connected to your intuition & vision, connected to spirit, grounded, emotions arise, and the movement of stuck energy.
Cacao Benefits 🍫
Studies have shown support a wide range of health benefits from reducing tiredness and fatigue to improving heart health, cognitive function and a potent antioxidant. Cacao is a natural source of flavanols, magnesium and others that you will discover during the event.
Important Health Notes
- Do not consume caffeine or alcohol prior to cacao.
- Drink plenty of water, especially towards the end of your ceremony. If you find you have a headache you may be dehydrated, drank too much cacao, or are detoxing with cacao’s assistance.
- Antidepressants with MAOIs contraindicate with cacao and can lead to severe headaches. Check your med's to see if this is the case.
- Cacao is a vasodilator, if you have a heart condition please advise the facilitators so we can provide you with a lower dose of cacao.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding: Go with a lower dose as cacao is a stimulant.
