About the event
Cacao ceremonies are cultural rituals most famously practiced by Mayan communities. They have recently grown in popularity in the West and have evolved in the process. Modern Cacao ceremonies are not religious, but can feel spiritual, much like a yoga or breathwork class.
Because the cultures who have cultivated Cacao have varying methods, facilitators may lead Cacao ceremonies differently. However, Cacao ceremonies in general maintain some commonalities:
A gathering of community members (all newcomers welcome) in a safe space
A blessing, setting of an intention, or collective "dropping in"
Drinking Cacao together during group discussion or journaling
A meditation guided by the facilitator with words or sound
A post-meditation check-in.
Cacao is a great heart opener and has numerous other medicinal benefits. Emily personally selected a ceremonial grade cacao from the Sierra Nevada mountains in Columbia. It is grown by the Arhuaco tribe on their ancestral land.
We ask for participants to wear something special to them in the theme of it being a true ceremony, but it can be as simple as a beautiful scarf or meaningful piece of clothing or jewelry.
