~ for heightened self-love, radiance and wildness ~
“An indigenous Mayan myth tells us that whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, Cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts, and return the planet to a state of harmony.”
There is a good reason for why you love chocolate. The effects on our brain chemistry is profound releasing endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, tryptophan – all substances that elevate the mood. But cacao offers much more than that.
Cacao (Theobroma cacao “Food of the Gods”) has had a long history of important worship & influence on human culture: dating back to 2000 BC with the Olmec civilization, following with the Mayans & Aztecs, followed by European Trade….Cacao is currently experiencing a new wave of worship.
The Spirit and essence of Cacao, as a plant medicine, is extremely gentle, loving & supportive. Often referred to as “Mama Cacao”, its essence is much like that of the archetypal Mother: unconditional love. Cacao works particularly on our heart-center: our ability to give and receive love freely – generously, and reminds us of the power of softness, over force.
The light of the full moon is healing, revealing and empowering at the same time. Next Sunday we will ask the moon and the cacao to guide us in a ceremony, where we learn to embrace our feminine qualities to find our way to self-love. Discovering a deepened sense of sensuality will play an important role in our journey, as this allows us to connect to our instinct and soften our judgemental intellect.
With the cacao spirit we will move our bodies and sound our voices to regain the primal, ancient parts of ourselves to make us whole, strong and wild again. We deepen this process through meditation and visualization and let the experience to imprint in the presence of a loving sisterhood.
