Sacred Cacao Ceremony
September 26, 2015 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am EDT$80
Traditionally prepared ceremonial cacao is a magical and sacred treat. It is not at all like drinking a regular cup of hot chocolate. It’s a strong and powerful drink, mixed with spices, to awaken the energetic properties of cacao. Brook was offered this ancient recipe when she worked with shamans in South America. She prepares it with special blessings and prayers offered up to Yolotl Etzli, the spirit of the plant itself. Doing this makes the concoction extremely powerful in aiding those who participate in the sacred ceremony, to open their heart and connect more fully for, deep shamanic journeying, inner work, and creative expression. Unlike a hallucinogenic, cacao takes you to the door of your awakening and offers you the opportunity to walk through it yourself, without forcing you. It is a gentle and magnificent healer.
Sacred ceremonial cacao is prepared in such a way that, the properties of it alone increases blood flow to the brain by 30-40%, and the actual oxygen in the blood is also increased by 20%. Along with this and the meditations and healing offered in this ceremony, you can greatly expand the energy of the heart center for deeper awareness, healing, joy and creativity.
We ask that if you have high blood pressure, heart issues, are pregnant, or are prone to severe anxiety, that you do not participate in these ceremonies.
