CACAO CEREMONY WITH JENNIFER ANN
In this Cacao Ceremony, we will reconnect our spirit to abundance, joy, freedom, and playfulness. The ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures knew the spirit of cacao very well and it was used in most rites and rituals. As they understood the literal meaning of cacao “Food of the God”.
In these times (raw) cacao has many health benefits as a mood stabilizer, bringer of bliss (anandamide molecule), energy booster, anti-depressant, helpful with high blood pressure, resetting of the hormones, many anti-oxidants and these are just a few of the benefits. Through Western science, we are rediscovering the healing properties of the bean on a physical level, yet we have to rediscover the spiritual healing properties.
Through this cacao ceremony, we will reconnect with the ancient spirit of cacao through prayer, music, movement, partner exercises and dance. Cacao is a very playful spirit and is ready to show you abundance in a joyful, yet powerful way. The cacao will help you to find your inner child, connect to your creativity and let it flow. She will leave you blissful, full of joy and reconnected to your core. Feel welcome to join and walk through the door of liberation in a safe and joyous way!

Ceremonial cacao was traditionally used by the Ancient Mayan Shamans in a ceremony to travel between the worlds, to travel beyond the veil. To do this, the shamans infused their cacao with spirit, giving the ceremonial cacao a spiritual dimension not found in other cacao sources. Ceremonial cacao is, therefore, an ancient plant medicine, a wisdom keeper, a teacher, and a facilitator. Ceremonial cacao leads you to the door to the heart, to the spiritual dimension, but it does not push you through like other plant medicines – such as those found in the Amazon forest. Ceremonial cacao invites you on a journey, to travel with the chocolate spirit through the veil in a safe an gentle way.
