about the event
We’ll begin with a seated, guided meditation, which will allow us to settle into a space of calm and openness. We’ll then move into the cacao ceremony, where we’ll drink pure ceremonial-grade Guatemalan cacao and set intentions. To facilitate a deeper experience and connection with the spirit of cacao, Dante (Spices Peculiar) will then lead us through a meditative percussion sound bath, where we’ll be able to bask in the effects of cacao, allowing her to lovingly hold and guide us as we connect deeper with our heart and intuition. Afterwards, we will open the space up for sharing (if you choose; silence is always welcome).
We will be seated or lying down for the majority of the time. We will do our best to provide cushions to sit on, but please bring anything you may specifically need to feel comfortable sitting on the ground (chairs are also welcome if that's better for you). Feel free to also bring a journal, yoga mat, or anything else you may wish to use after the ceremony to capture any thoughts, emotions, or energies that arise.
It is easiest to connect with the spirit of cacao on an empty stomach and in the absence of other substances (caffeine, alcohol, marijuana, etc). We recommend fasting for at least 2-3 hours before the event. For more information on how to prepare for a cacao ceremony and what to expect, please click here.
Please contact us ahead of time with any food allergies, if you are taking any prescription medications, including (but not limited to) antidepressant, cardiac, or blood pressure medications, and/or are pregnant or breastfeeding, so we can discuss modifying your cacao dose.
