August Cacao Sharemony
5th August, Xenia Waterloo
Nature is in full bloom now, but are you? This Cacao ceremony will connect us with our most radiant potential. The Cacao spirit will show us where we need to go, what we need to let go of and what is or is not working. This is the perfect time to get really clear on the path ahead so you can utilise the last of the summer energy to move forward smoothly and effortlessly.
A Cacao Ceremony gives us time for ourselves in a hectic and stressful world. It is the perfect space to switch off the outside chaos and journey into the silence, so that we can become clearer of who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us.
Whether you’re looking for help shifting an emotional blockage, needing to let go of a past experience, dissolve negative energy or you simply want to lift your spirits, these ceremonies can provide the focus you need to re-align with who you really are, and get back on track.
Cacao (raw chocolate) is a powerful plant medicine that has been used ceremonially for thousands of years across Central and South America. The people of ancient Mesoamerica attributed a sacred status to Cacao and would drink ceremonially to commune with their gods.
