De Cacao Academy was voor mij de eerste keer om een cacao ceremonie mee te maken. Jennifer Ann, die het organiseerde ervaarde ik als een hele lieve, fijne, mooie en pure vrouw die het werk met hart en ziel doet wat bij mij erg voelbaar was. Deze dag heb ik als heel erg fijn ervaren en raadt het iedereen aan die er open voor staat. Alleen maar liefde en verbondenheid. Dankbaar dat Jennifer Ann dit organiseert.

How does cacao heal physical?
*Cacao is one of the most nutritional dense foods in the world! And the highest source of magnesium and vitamin C in nature, full of antioxidants, calcium, zinc, copper and selenium. Cacao contains more antioxidants per gram than blueberries, goji berries, prunes and pomegranates. ( this is just small portion of the healing benefits of cacao)
WHAT'S A CACAO CEREMONY?
A Cacao Ceremony is an ancient ritual with it roots in Mesoamerica. The cacao bean was highly valued with the Aztec and Mayan Cultures and through times the cacao bean has taken many different forms and shapes. Yet the main message was and still is for ceremonial use: Food of the Gods.
When Theobroma ( the scientific name, coming from Theobromine, an active molecule in the cacao bean) is translated from the Greek languages it means: Food of the Gods.
Suggesting that the chemical compounds of the cacao bean, can bring a person in a different state of mind, feeling and being. (Without being a psychedelic!) The bean does have neurocognitive effects, enhancing your mood, stabilizing hormones, allowing more focus and creativity to flow naturally.
Spiritually it is said that cacao opens the heart. Meaning that the energy of the heart chakra can flow more freely, as well as emotions. Stuck emotions can foster small and/or big trauma’s, which the cacao can gently touch, allowing energy to start moving again.
When we use the cacao ceremonial, the cacao is brewed into a liquid drink ( with or without herbs and sweeteners) In general there is a facilitator and a group of people coming together to focus their intentions, to receive clarity, go into meditation and allow inner & outer healing experiences to happen.
The facilitator sets a safe and sacred space for people to relax in and be open to receive healing. Ideally the group sits in circle, going into prayer, creating music, singing songs (chants) and using dance and/or movement, to raise their vibration and allow healing to happen.
This type of setting, can move stagnant energy, shift perspective and allow new experiences and insights to happen. Leaving participants with an uplifted spirit and release of many tensions in the body, mind and spirit. The freed up space that is created, can now be used for different purposes.
Cacao can also be used during one-on-one (healing/therapeutic) sessions. Making the ceremony very intimate and personal, this can be just as powerful or even more powerful than bigger groups.
