Nick Meador presents an Online Cacao Ceremony & Class that can benefit your personal spiritual practice and also integrete with classes and workshops that you lead.
Cacao is the natural, unprocessed form of chocolate grown in tropical regions around the world. Most people know cacao as a superfood. It has an extremely high amount of antioxidants, known to remove free radicals from the body. Cacao is high in beneficial vitamins and minerals, especially iron and magnesium. And the main active compound, theobromine, gives a boost of energy without the crash or cravings that come from caffeine (which is actually very sparse in cacao).
Yet cacao also has another aspect not spoken about in health food stores. Legends tell of ancient Mesoamerican civilizations using cacao for introspective and celebratory purposes, calling it the “Food of the Gods” and possibly even trading it like currency. Cacao remains an important part of the culture in some indigenous tribes of Mayan and Aztec heritage. This more mysterious and magical aspect of cacao offers the potential to put you more in touch with your body and your soul.
In the most basic sense, a ceremony is a chance to look within ourselves in a facilitated group. With cacao, the increased blood flow and presence of other compounds like anandamide (the “bliss molecule”) can give you a sense of feeling fully alive and in touch with your life force energy. It’s common to get an insight into how you could live a lighter, freer life, plus the motivation to actually make a change.
