About the event
The ceremony will commence with a Yin Yang yoga class focused on grounding, connection and opening of the heart. Raw cacao is also known as a heart opener. It guides you gently through your inner world and allows you to access tucked away emotions.
We will dive into our inner worlds guided by gentle movements, raw cacao, singing bowls, voice and other instruments. Knowing, that cacao is opening doors for us to walk through and explore the landscape behind it, we will create a deep and soul exploring experience together.
What is the cacao ceremony about?
The Cacao tree, also known as Theobroma Cacao was highly valued in the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Today, following a long line of traditions, Theobroma Cacao is used as a ceremonial drink in South America. During these ceremonies, cacao is offered to the gods by pouring the first sip into a bonfire and the rest is then drunk as a thick chocolaty drink, allowing the body to receive the blessings of this plant. Recipes and proper preparation of the plant are handed down from generation to generation. Choosing the source of the cacao is important to create a bond with nature and honour the long traditions and the plant.
Raw cacao also has multiple physical benefits. The components anandamide and theobromine work as anti-depressants and stimulate motivation. Cacao widens our arteries and veins slightly, leading to increased oxygenation of the whole body and the drink is known to stimulate the body and fill it with energy.
We will provide you with all the props and comforts you should desire, like cushy bolsters and plush eye pillows, so that you may truly relax and immerse yourself in this experience.
