"On the whole I feel positive and calmer and more able to connect with my heart centre (which was my intention) and I have a positive proactive energy in me. I feel less worried and stressed about day to day life..." Sash Frase, Cacao Sound Ceremony attendee 22/09/2019

Cacao is THE love medicine!
It is International Cacao Day and I can think of no better way to honour this medicine!
Packed full of neurotransmitters that evoke love, clarity, creativity and bliss, Cacao was known as 'Food of the Gods' by the Mesoamericans who valued it as a divine conduit through which they could speak with the Gods.
(See 'Cacao Contains' below).
You MUST READ the 'contra-indications' below before booking.
What to Expect
I work with trust in Sacred Cacao listening and following her lead. Essentially, I help to hold a space for her to do her work. Thus the ceremony flows according to what is needed.
The below is based on previous ceremonies but subject to change due to the above.
Sit and share in ceremonial circle
Drink ceremonial grade Cacao tea
Be guided on a spirit medicine journey
Be held in a vibrational bath of soft instrumental sounds; for example, shamanic reiki drum, singing bowls and voice. Also a light 24" Venus planetary gong bath. Venus governs the feminine principle that brings love, romance and creativity; a perfect complement to Cacao.
1:1 healing may be included
Rosemarinus Offcinalis (Rosemary) may also appear to cleanse, clean and protect your energy
Contact me to reserve a bag of ceremonial grade Cacao, sourced from the Andean rainforest by Cacao Love.
Use ceremonially, in baking, added to smoothies or grated over morning cereals.
