Three day immersion into the medicine, beauty and wisdom of cacao.
This training is designed for those who wish to deepen their understanding and appreciation of cacao, both to hold space for others and for private practice. We spend time with our old cacao trees, sitting in meditation with them, listening to their stories, honouring their wisdom. I share the cultural and historical symbolism and magic of cacao, her intense presence and strength as part of both the forest and the communities which hold her sacred.
We will study and practice the medicine of cacao, making several medicines from her for spiritual, emotional and physical well being. Teas, essences and smoking blends from the tree herself, and cacao preparations and chocolate from her seeds.
Together we will make different drinks, from ancient traditions to more modern interpretations, all with explanations and conversations around how to use and when to use different preparations.
