In many traditions the womb space is seen as the centre of life, the universe and deeply connected to to the lifeblood of humanity. In today’s society it is more important than ever to cleanse and honour our wombs so that we can tune in to a much deeper inner wisdom that goes far beyond the lack of acknowledgement and respect in our culture. Consciousness needs to come into being, and we can only do that by communing deeply into our bellies, our bodies as women and connection to mother earth. In this ceremony we will explore this and much more, helping to clear the way for ideas to come into fruition, consciousness into embodiment, sexuality as sacred, womb into woman, woman into wisdom. Our hearts can expand with the warmth of Mama Cacao and the depth of holding in our wombs.

This is for women of all ages, born or identified and who would like to awaken their womb wisdom, let go of conditioned patterns, love their bodies; connect to their bliss, create healthy relationship, ignite their creative potential and open to the sacredness of their womb space.

We will explore practices that involve body meditation, breath, sound and movement that will free our minds and bodies, allowing us to connect and move from our womb space. There will also be a time for some radical self-care with a long "Savasana" style letting go for integration.

About Cacao Medicine
Ix Cacao is known as the "food of the gods" and has been used by Mayan, Aztec and Inca tribes for thousands of years for ceremonial purposes. As a potent healer, this medicine helps us to open our hearts, connect with our inner wisdom and creativity so that we can dissolve our blockages and create new pathways into being. Ix Cacao brings us grounding into our bodies and can help us open up to feeling and sensing more deeply. Mama Cacao is a very feminine and creative medicine so she will help us to explore our womb space and sacred sexuality in a soft yet powerful way.

Cacao is likely to make you feel more alive from the inside in a gentle, loving way. This is due to the effects of the many stimulating, warming and feel good natural chemicals it contains. Please be aware that this may keep you awake for a few hours after the ceremony, however most people find they want to rest very shortly afterwards as it takes them quietly within.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is very healthy and a potent time for you and your baby, a smaller dose is recommended. Your baby will tell you :-). Please let us know so we can ensure that we create the right mix for you.

Contraindications: This medicine does not mix well with anti-depressants or anti-pyschotics. Please talk to us if you have any doubts such as heart or blood pressure.


To prepare the physical body some preparation and cleansing is recommended and full details will be sent in advance. This will mostly involve refraining from dairy, alcohol and caffeine for 3 days, most importantly for 24hours before and after the ceremony.

It is also advised if you can plan for a restful evening and day after the ceremony, although it won't affect your daily activities, there is still some processing happening at a physical and emotional level for a few days.

Also consider your intention for this ceremony, what do you wish to invite in, let go of or ask help with? Intentions are very useful tools for communicating with plant medicine and creating an anchor for us to focus throughout the ceremony. It can be precise or unpolished, just give it some thought and if it comes in the moment, that is fine too.
