Soul Lift Cacao Tour: Journey to the Source


13708166_1779206248958143_5564663468837417887_o.jpg

Join transformational guide Nick Meador for a 4-day adventure into the cloud forests of eastern Guatemala, to visit the farm where he sources DaliLeo ceremonial-grade cacao.

This will be a unique combination of eco-sustainability tour and transformative self-development retreat. Registration includes guided transportation to and from the farm, tours of the cacao farm and production facilities with the owner.

Finca el Porvenir (farm of the future) is off the grid, creating hydroelectricity from a local spring to drive their custom-made cacao grinders. They are actively working on reforestation and permaculture projects. And they keep free-range livestock that organically fertilize the cacao trees and help turn the soil.

All participants will also get to experience traditional cacao ceremony with local Mayan “tatas” (tribal leaders).

Pure cacao can open the heart; deepen meditative experiences; boost insights, focus, and motivation; and foster inner/outer connection. Participants often find a calm sense of euphoria, more connection to something bigger than themselves, and a readiness to step further on the path of their destiny.

Furthermore, Nick will lead transformational workshops that weave together embodiment practices (active meditation, breathwork, movement) and mindset training (Nonviolent Communication, re-patterning of unhelpful belief systems, exploration of values).

And you’ll have some free time to explore the cacao trees, shower in a waterfall, or simply reflect and journal.

This is the perfect way to step outside your comfort zone and into your adventure, with a seasoned, trustworthy guide.
