Womens Full Moon Cacao Ceremony

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

Do you need time out from your hectic lifestyle to come back to your centre? Would you like to explore your inner truth and creative expression? This ceremony will be a great opportunity to take time out, nourish ourselves and gain clarity as we reach the mid-point of the year, where are we going from here?

We will cultivate the Full Moon energy to reflect and bring light into our hearts and wombs. Gathering as women at this potent time will bring healing, inspiration and connection, a safe and gentle way to explore our own presence. 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 womb 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 contact Louise at if you have any conditions 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.
