SACRED CACAO CEREMONY & SOUND BATH
What is Cacao & what is all the fuss about?
Cacao (pronounced Ca-Cow) is a natural plant medicine used for its many science backed health benefits and has been used by Aztec & Mayan Shamans for centuries to help open up and connect to deep levels of oneself- in particular to access the highest forms of self love.
Cacao literally translates as the ‘Elixir of the Gods’. It is considered by Shamans as the ‘food for the shift’ as it’s a powerful medicinal plant used for expanding consciousness without the hallucinogenic properties of other powerful plant medicines. Cacao in its raw and natural state contains over 300 compounds, including the bliss chemicals dopamine, serotonin, anandamide, phenylethylamine, and theobromine. These chemicals are naturally released when we fall in love.
It has the power to provide mental clarity, to move you from your head to your heart, and to produce a gentle euphoria.
In her ceremonies, Lisa only uses ceremonial grade raw organic Cacao paste from Peru. Cacao paste is different from cocoa & chocolate in that Cacao is derived from the whole Cacao bean, which is cold pressed to preserve its natural properties. Cocao & chocolate only contain small amounts of processed Cacao and has been mixed with other ingredients, meaning that the percentage of actual Cacao in store bought chocolate & cocoa is very small and has been processed so its natural properties are no longer present. Ceremonial Cacao makes up only 5% of the Cacao that’s currently produced worldwide.
