Please note that this is a fully inclusive event for all genders and backgrounds.

As life moves at a fast pace with the abundance of Summer, this ceremony provides an opportunity to move into stillness. By allowing the chaos around us to be, we will focus on harnessing the fire within to bring deep insights, stillness and self-love. Cacao is a great facilitator that allows for our hearts to expand and allow what we have to offer to the world to shine.

We will also celebrate the beginning of the harvest season, Lammas or Lughnasadh by giving gratitude for the abundance of summer and allow us time to reflect on what we would like to harvest for the next season.

This ceremony will make use of heart opening intention, chakra toning, breathwork, journeying, shamanic drumming, sound and radical resting.

What is involved?

We use breath and sound to clear your chakras, a guided journey with the drum, sound and movement to awaken the voice and movement of the feminine, followed by some radical rest for your own journeying. This allows you to explore at your own pace and have some time to reflect with the medicine.

Please note that this is fully inclusive and open to all genders.

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 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.
