with Angela Sessions
Experience the wonder of sacred Cacao at our New Moon Cacao Ceremony with experienced Shamanic practitioner and teacher, Angela Sessions.
Angela is also a Reiki Master Teacher and arts therapist with 20 years' experience in the field of energy medicine.
Shamanic Cacao has been used in Meso-America for thousands of years for its medicinal properties and in sacred ceremonies to honour the Gods. It was known as the “Food of the Gods” and was revered by the Mayan culture.
Raw Cacao has many health benefits, but used within a sacred ceremony its properties become even more potent as we connect to the plant spirit herself – Mother Cacao. Within the ceremony we will shamanic journey with the drum, to meet the plant spirit Cacao and the Goddess Ix Chel, Mayan Goddess of the Moon and Medicine.
Cacao opens and nurtures the heart chakra. She helps to remove blocks on all levels, energetically, physically, emotional/mental. She re-aligns your energy and helps dissolve negativity. Cacao is considered to be a gentle plant spirit medicine, but is still very powerful.
The science of Cacao contains a powerhouse of antioxidants. It aids cardiovascular health and lowers blood pressure. It triggers the release of dopamine and endorphins in the brain which soothes depression, pre-menstrual symptoms and emotional stress. The increase in blood flow to the brain increases focus and mental agility. Daily consumption can also help the skins resistance to UV rays and helps the skin look smoother. Cacao contains Anandamide which is the bliss molecule. Consumption increases pleasure and motivation and gives a “natural high”.
The ceremony is a SACRED ceremony. You will journey, meditate and rest and receive healing. Journaling is also recommended.
We recommend that you avoid animal products, caffeine and alcohol on the day and, if possible, also aim to avoid these products the day before and after.
On the ceremony day, please eat light meals and avoid food two hours before drinking cacao.
Angela will be using Cacao prepared by The Ashaninka Tribe in Peru. She will add other plant medicines to the cacao depending on the group energies.
Please notify Angela if you are on any medications such as anti-depressants, have a serious heart condition or are pregnant/breastfeeding.
Please bring a water bottle, notebook and pen and a blanket.
This ceremony will be held on a new moon and therefore we will be bringing in the fresh new energies of that cycle for harmony and well-being.
