Shimmering Hearts Cacao Ceremony-A ritual with the elements


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

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.

The sound journey will carry you through a journey across the seas and mountains, ancestral winds and the voices of time. The spirit of cacao will gently attend our calling, assisting us in our process of healing, ascension and awakening. Drums, Marimba, flutes, sacred chants and other shamanic indigenous sounds will fill our souls and hearts with bliss and joy. As the intensity and the vibration arises we will be carried

The meeting of the two ancestral cultures of the spirit of Cacao will join the spirit of the drums, marimba and the gaitas, as we shall soar upon their higher vibrations. Allow yourself to be seduced………..

***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...
