The effect of ceremonial grade cacao is known for generating somewhat of a gentle expansive feeling, assisting with deeper connection, unlocking spiritual channels, releasing negative emotions, and most importantly opening the heart chakra. When we combine this ancient tradition with the frequencies and pulses from instruments such as Medicine Drums, Cosmic Tone drums, Rife Frequencies, Dulsitars etc, it deepens the experience dramatically, enhancing the euphoric possibilities and the inner connection. We will also be sharing knowledge in yogic principles, kundalini and tantra. Come dive deep and take a journey with us.

Says Jay and Nicole “We are really excited to be bring the Cacao Journey experience to WA, they have been working so well in other parts of the world and I feel the people of WA will absolutely love this very unique experience. People are often confused about what pure cacao actually is (as opposed to off the shelf style cacao or chocolate). Basically, brands of chocolate such as Cadbury are missing 99% of the 1200 active components of ceremonial cacao. Even the slightly purer blends of chocolate such as Lindt are still missing around 80%. Processing, preparation temperature, ingredients, and hybridization all contribute to this. The cacao we are importing to Australia is 100% ceremonial grade raw cacao imported from Guatemala and we carefully prepare the cacao with love and ritual throughout the day of the ceremony, combining herbs, spices and natural raw sweeteners to transform this bitter cacao into a luxurious delicacy that is somewhat of a silky liquid warm chocolate drink that is absolutely delicious!

Cacao has been used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine dating back to 1900BC, documented as being used by the Ancient ancestors of the Olmec people from Central America. Later it was used as a ritualistic medicine by the Mayan and Aztec cultures. All vitamins and minerals found in cacao are also produced naturally in the human body and perform essential functions, although these days external factors such as pursuing busy lifestyles and following a western diet heavily diminish these chemicals in our natural state. The intake of ceremonial cacao can be considered to allow somewhat of a reset to connect with our natural state of being.
