An uplifting and heart-opening Cacao Ceremony.

Cacao ceremonies are Mayan and Aztec shamanic rituals that date back to 2000 BC.

Cacao contains a molecule called theobromine, which acts to stimulate blood flow and release endorphins, creating feelings of warmth and openness.

All are welcome to join to experience ceremony using this subtle plant medicine, meditate, connect and share stories. The session will end in group song and body movement with traditional Amazonian songs called “Icaros”.
