A Journey into the heart of Cacao
An ancient Mayan prophecy says;
“the Cacao Spirit will come out of the rainforest when the world goes into chaos, and help people reconnect to the magic wisdom of their hearts”
We are living in times of chaos and unpredictability. Now more than ever, humans are being called to come together and recognize the unity of all things and dissolve the old paradigms of separation.
The heart is the meeting place for this uniting energy and the consciousness behind Cacao is in total devotion to having the magic of your heart find you.
It is here to tickle you in the deepest sense.
Come join us at Highden Temple for this event entirely dedicated to opening and nurturing the heart with the wisdom of Cacao.
This afternoon will adventure you into:
- How the ancient Mayan shamans related with the Cacao Spirit
- Reveal the role the Cacao Spirit played in the Aztec civilisation
- the wide spectrum of compounds researched in the west, residing within this plant.
We will journey with a Cacao from the wild jungles of Guatemala.
This exact Cacao was handled by the natives, in a particular way to activate specific shamanic properties.
Our guide on this journey; Dreki, has been in mentorship with a Cacao shaman since 2013 and has traveled into the wild jungle of Guatemala with a native Mayan elder, to learn the ways of the Cacao Spirit.
Since coming out of the jungle, he has facilitated ceremonies all over the planet.
Dreki will also bring us on a Shamanic Drum Journey. This will be a unique somatic experience and can be very healing.
Prepare yourself on the day of the ceremony by just drinking water 3-4 hours before.
