Drink cacao & chant the divine names!
Please join us for this 3rd annual Christmas Cacao Ceremony where we will sit Sangha, imbibe cacao medicine, and honor the return of the light as well as the aspects of compassion & divine love during this sacred season.
Before the advent of commercial chocolate, cacao seeds were prepared as a ceremonial drink within the indigenous cultures of Mesoamerica. When used in ceremony cacao acts as a gentle, yet powerful, assistant to activate the pineal gland and open the heart, thereby increasing sensitivity to subtle energies and facilitating connection. Using chocolate in this way while sitting together with intention, holding sacred space, is a powerful way to transform our reality and to feel the love and support that is always present within us. It is of great importance these days to take time out – even for an afternoon – and to remember this place of sweetness and alignment. Going home to this place together, in a group, amplifies the experience and can have a deep and lasting effect on our consciousness. This experience, of allowing ourselves to fill up as we sit in the company of our reflected truth, is called Satsang. Medicine of the Heart employs the ancient remedies of Cacao and Kirtan as our faithful assistants to help create a powerful vibration to assist us in reconnecting and remembering who we truly are. The combination of reclaiming chocolate as medicine and bringing voies together in praise of our own divine nature, while feeling one another’s presence throughout, creates a truly magical journey!
~This Heart-Activation journey includes a potent dose of ceremonial grade, hand-peeled, heirloom variety cacao from Guatemala. Chocolate, as it’s commonly called, is a safe and legal plant medicine that can be an amazing assistant and catalyst in our Awakening and Self-Realization.
~Journeyers will learn more about chocolate as medicine and how to use it.
~Dr Cacao’s ceremonial grade cacao formulas will be available for purchase following the ceremony
**It is recommended that you eat very lightly (or not at all) prior to the ceremony to allow for full absorption of cacao.
Please bring any of the following:
A favorite mug, sacred items for the altar, a journal, live music (instrument, voice, or medicinal song to share) and your own Self’s medicine and focused presence!
