Ceremonial Cacao Circle LIVE

September 19, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Cacao Ceremony

We gather during this Harvest full moon celebrating with Ceremonial Cacao. This sacred beverage invites us to explore our connection to the heartspace, to open ourselves to the exploration of the self and connection to the natural world.

Indigenous nations from Mesoamerica have connected with Cacao in ritual and ceremony for thousands of years to activate the communication with our inner guidance, the natural world, and the energies that support us.

During our journey we will share a cup of Cacao together, get to know this powerful ally and the history of Cacao, physical benefits, while exploring conversations of the natural world. We will finish the ceremony with a guided sound meditation to integrate the messages shared during our time together.
