About A Cacao Ceremony

A Heart Open Ceremony – Cacao; The Food of Gods is prepared in a sacred manner and in the Ceremony, we invoke the presence of the Spirit of Cacao, honouring it with healing sound, Meditation & Movement. Ritual cacao is made from organic ground cacao beans from Peru, water, cacao butter, spices and a tiny bit of sugar I use unrefined coconut sugar all mixed into a liquid, actually very bitter but naturally high in iron, magnesium and B-complex vitamins. We set our intentions for what we would like to receive from the experience and all drink together savouring the delicious richness as it moves through our body. 

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. Cacao increases the energetic field of our hearts, and when we join together, the field is amplified and woven together with multiple hearts in the room. When multiple people share cacao together, we have a shared experience of mood elevation, increased vitality, enhanced intuition and empathy, and a more open, present heart. 

What Happens in a Cacao Ceremony?

We will be sitting in a circle and set intentions, the meditation will be followed by music, chanting, singing, drumming, Gong and “dancing Movement Medicine™ is a body-based meditation practice” and creative expression to release anything you might still be holding on to that does not serve your highest vibration and potential. Anything that needs to be released can be let go of in this safe container and sacred space, supported by the loving heart medicine, a safe and open group. Cacao ceremonies can be a great way to meet new people in your community, who are interested in healing and intentional connection with others.

If you are interested in doing healing work, such as clearing past trauma from relationships, ancestral clearing, or understanding the root cause of physical ailments, a cacao ceremony can support those intentions. Note, a cacao ceremony is typically not a place where you would experience therapy, or personal 1:1 support, so if you need more in depth support for deep trauma, I recommend working with a therapist or healer 1:1. Guiomar is a Holistic therapist with almost a decade of experience.

If you are looking to move more, to experience more bliss in your life, to fill up with the essence of who you are, cacao can support a deeper connection with your body.

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.

How To Prepare Yourself:

  • Cacao contains caffeine, so please do NOT DRINK COFFEE or any other stimulants at least 3 hours before the ceremony.
  • We recommend that you do not eat for at least three hours prior to the ceremony. 
  • Please drink plenty of water both before and after the ceremony to stay hydrated. This is so that the cacao can be quickly and easily absorbed enabling you to go deeper into your journey.
  •   If you are feeling floaty or spacey after the ceremony, a good way to ground the energy is to eat a nourishing, healthy meal.
  •   Dress in comfortable loose clothing.

What To Bring

  • Your journal and a pen to write down any insights from your journey
  • A yoga mat, essential as the space is not carpeted, and we will be lying down.
  • A cosy blanket, pillow.
  • A water bottle.
  • An intention for the ceremony.

Important Information:

Serious heart conditions: the theobromine in cacao increases heart rate significantly and is a vasodilator, lowering blood pressure. If you have such a condition, consider consulting a physician and certainly go lighter on amounts. Pregnancy & breastfeeding. Like coffee or tea, it is important to reduce the intake of stimulating foods. The theobromine in cacao, which is very similar to caffeine, has a stimulating effect. Thus, we recommend using lower dosages (ex. a maximum of 1oz in a ceremonial drink).

Gong & Sound Healing: Tinnitus/ Menieres or Epilepsy any condition which is sound sensitive could be triggered by sound.
Metal implants/pacemakers etc. (can resonate the metal and also change the rhythm of pacemakers)
Anyone with a serious Mental Health Condition, please consult your GP practitioner for advice.
