Womens Cacao Ceremony

  • Leith Yoga 130/7 Leith Walk Edinburgh, Scotland, EH6 5DT United Kingdom (map)

Do you ever feel that you need to slow down and take better care of yourself? Do you sometimes find it difficult to surrender to the moment, rather than what you think it should be? Would you like to connect with and trust your own intuition more?

This sacred cacao ceremony is to allow time for a deep breath, slowing down and reconnecting to our bodies, hearts and wombs. This will be in a sacred, nurturing space full of warmth, light and depth to allow healing and connection. We will honour the divine feminine within us all, with Ix Cacao as our guide to journey deep into the roots of Mother Earth and reconnect with our own roots. This will allow us to drop in and dissolve blockages or patterns that we may hold on to consciously or unconsciously. Sound, drumming, movement, chakra toning and journeying will help us to truly drop into spirit with this deep practice.

About the medicine

Mama Cacao is a potent healer, this tree medicine helps us to connect with our inner wisdom and creativity so that we can dissolve our own blockages and create new pathways into being. Cacao is particularly helpful for heart and hara activation, opening up the channels and creating permanent changes.

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 :-).

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

Preparation

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.
