Cacao is gaining great popularity around the world and also more and more here, in Aotearoa, New Zealand. It can be used to enhance any practice - yoga, meditation, dance, singing, creativity, art, social encounters... yet it is also a powerful medicine in itself. It is a plant that established a deep connection with the heart, with our emotional world and creative self. It is a gateway into experiencing more freedom and can help heal various health conditions, our body, mind and soul.
This is an invitation to a journey together in a Cacao "diet" - a guided process of one moon cycle, created to open the spectrum of working with Cacao as a medicinal plant. Even if you're new to the plant medicine world, you will find yourself at home - the spirit of cacao is so welcoming, caring and loving.
If you've attended a cacao ceremony before - this is your chance to really go deep and experience first hand all the beneficial properties of drinking real cacao.
You will receive a block of 100% pure ceremonial grade cacao from the native lands of the plant (nowadays Guatemala) and instructions for a daily preparation and work with it.
This will be a very individual journey, yet in the support and mentoring of an experienced practitioner. We will gather online via zoom 4 times in the month to touch base and sit together in ceremony, starting on New moon and going through fruition on Full moon to ind back down with the following New Moon. Times of the online meetings will be set in order to suit all participants.

~ CACAO AS A PLANT MEDICINE ~
Cacao has been used for centuries to heal the mental, physical and spiritual body. It is a natural and ancient plant medicine with a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Cacao increases blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to the brain as well as induces the release of feel-good endorphins.
Cacao has enormous health benefits for the physical, mental, emotional and energetic body. Physically, cacao enhances the immune system, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, increases vitality, creativity and concentration. Cacao is often used to change perspectives, enabling one to recognize and let go of repeated patterns or bad habits, release energetic blockages and what no longer serves. Naturally packed with theobromine, cacao gives a burst of energy that helps the mind focus and aids in memory. It is a creativity enhancer and facilitator of deep inner meditation and connection.
Cacao is rich in antioxidants and contains over 300 nutrients including magnesium, large amounts of iron, omega-6, vitamin C, chromium, trace elements, sulphur, zinc & copper to name just a few. Raw cacao contains nearly four times the antioxidant content of regular processed dark chocolate and 20 times more than blueberries.
~ PLANT DIET (dieta) ~
A plant diet is a practice of developing an attunement to the spirit of a specific plant. An individual undergoing such a process will be required to possibly alter their diet and daily routine in order to accommodate best the intake of the plant medicine. This can mean for example a retreat into isolation for a period of time (from days to months or even years). Sugar, salt, spicy foods, meat, acidic fruits, fermented foods, alcohol, and stimulants are avoided, as well as excessive exposure to sun, rain, fire, and unpleasant smells. Social interactions are reduced or made more conscious. The process requires self-discipline, commitment and an open mind and curiosity to explore ritual and a more poetical way of seeing the world. Yet, it will not be difficult or straining at all - you'll be guided on every step and suggestions will be given for a smooth transition in and out of the "diet". Such a process will inevitably bring results and modify states of consciousness, it will purify the body and stimulate the body’s innate ability to self-heal.
The Cacao that will be used is a very special type that a cacao shaman selected personally for its energetic qualities. It comes from Guatemala, the heartland of the Mayan people who have used it for millennia. We’ll learn about cacao’s origins, history, health benefits and energetic/spiritual qualities and get to experience pure cacao with new levels of awareness and appreciation.
