Divine Feminine Heartspace Awakening - Cacao Ceremony

Description
This is a women-only event.

The Spirit of Cacao provides a gentle awakening of the depths of the heartspace.


Ceremony is essential for maintaining identity, connectedness and a sense of belonging. The absence of ceremony in life leaves a profound yearning for connection to self and others.

Ceremony deepens our experience of life and adds richness, depth and meaning. It is a label that describes a concentration of intent and attention where we consciously create richer moments.

It’s thought cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Signifying both life and fertility, it was ingested by Royalty in ceremonial God worship and in sacrificial ritual.

Due to certain active ingredients that help release ‘feel good’ emotions, cacao is considered a heart opener. Creating feelings of emotional intimacy and pleasure, it has long been considered a luxurious delicacy, especially with the addition of sugar and spices to suit modern palates. Without realizing, we still get to enjoy a small fraction of it’s potential when we eat cacao in a regular chocolate bar. And yes, this is why it has become associated with romantic gestures and pleasurable indulgence!

A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.

I will be creating a delicious chocolately brew using whole Balinese organic raw cacao beans, chilli, cinnamon and honey. I will also be providing some dark chocolate further into the ceremony to connect with the lusciousness and richness given to us by Deva lxcacao.

For this women-only event, we will be exploring the ways in which this heart-opening medicine can support us in our natural expression of our femininity. By allowing the cacao Spirit to gently lift us into a softened and awakened space of love, we can more easily drop into the creative flow of the Divine Mother within.

The rough outline for this ceremony will be:

- Smudging (sage or palo santo) of each person

- Creation of group altar- please bring along your personal sacred items that you wish to place on the altar

- Prayer to the Seven Directions for their guidance and wisdom, and addition of items to the altar for each direction

- Pulling of Native Spirit Oracle Card for intention and guidance

- Sharing of some of the research and understanding gathered surrounding sacred Cacao medicine

- Prayer to call in the Ixcacao Deva

- Drinking of the cacao medicine

- Sharing of intentions - what we wish to let go of, and what we are calling in

- Divine Feminine awakening - vocal and physical expression to connect to the sacred mother within

- Second serving of the cacao medicine

- Group songs for sound healing, or meditation as guided by Spirit

- Chance to move to music or to meditate, as guided by Spirit

- Chocolate sharing

- Silence and individual reflection

- Closing of the ceremony

Please fast for a few hours prior to coming to the ceremony. Avoid dairy products that day. Bring something you can sit on, your sacred altar items, a notebook and pen if you wish to journal about your experience, mosquito repellent and a large filled water bottle.

Please feel free to bring along your girlfriends, sisters, mothers, daughters :) The more the merrier and we will make some beautiful feminine magic together!
