Sacred Sweat Lodge - The Ritual With The Elements


The Shimmering hearts Team wish to invite to our first Sacred cacao ceremony & Sweat Lodge -A ritual with the Elements. 

We are grateful for the opportunity to be sharing these two medicines. The sacred ritual of the Sweat lodge which is an ancient tradition of many cultures around the world. It is profound communion between fire, water and will power and power cleansing and purification ritual that will connect back to your ancestors taking you back to the womb of the mother to the essence of life itself.


Sacred Cacao medicine is use by the Mayas and many other cultures from the American continent. Cacao is 'The Food for the Shift'. An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people's hearts and return us all to harmony.

Ceremonial grade cacao is an important, powerful, and previously overlooked teacher, facilitator, and medicine-plant. For those of you who know that your connection with chocolate runs deep, here we share a very different dimension to that connection - a deeply spiritual or shamanic one. Ceremonial Cacao partners with you on your journey... experience chocolate as the magical partner it is! The Cacao Spirit ‘returns’ – from a long history with Indigenous peoples. In this event we will be journeying with the spirit of the sacred cacao through sound, trance dance and meditation.

***Heads Up Note: Many antidepressants do NOT mix with the tryptophan and MAO (Monoamine Oxidase) Inhibitors in this cacao… 

Google your medication! – I have seen some very painful migraine headaches...
