This is not just a Cacao Ceremony. This is a one day Deep Dive Ceremony with Medicine Plants, in this case Cacao and often other medicines as well (Blue Lotus, Bobinsana, Mimosa Pucica, Rapé, Mapacho Tobacco, to name a few). It is a beautiful opportunity for you to connect with these plant spirits and let them support you on your path. All within a safe container of space holding, by Yama and her team.
After drinking the ‘ceremonial grade’ cacao mixed in a special tea, Yama will create a Sacred Space with sounds, vibrations, voice and icaros (plant medicine music) and meditations. This Sacred Space is an invitation for you to open your Fullest Potential. Yama might support the individual processes with other plant medicines and limpias (shamanic healing). Towards the end there will be singing with guitar and the opportunity for participants to join in the music. We end the gathering by sharing a healthy and nourishing meal.
“While the Sacred Medicines are entering your body, you hear soft breathing sounds, humming, whistling… enchanting rhythms… rustling leaves … subtle sparkling tingling seeds… icaros calling upon the maestros and spirits… heart-opening voices… the chacapa… the sun gong… wind chimes…. singing bowls and bells…”
The sacred medicine of Cacao alters the neurochemicals in the brain, produces a feeling of well-being and heart-opening, helps us elevate our state of consciousness, brings our polarities into balance and reconnects us in an infinite state of Oneness.
The highly potent ‘ceremonial grade’ cacao that we use for our ceremonies has a natural strong dose of these substances, since it is not being modified for consumption. Most cacao is produced as cheap as possible, for consumption. There is also beautiful raw cacao for healthy food and as an energy supplement. And then… there is wild and medicinal cacao! We only use the purest and most potent healing cacao we know, an ancient and rare Guatemalan variety that is being selected for it’s very strong vibration, which doesn’t come from cacao plantations but grows either wild in the jungle or together with other plants in a balanced permaculture, to reach the optimum natural conditions for both of them. It is carefully selected and difficult to get.
