Mesmerised by the rich aroma, taste trickling tingling my taste buds.  I feel the warmth in my heart, soothing, comforting.  Like a welcome Summer breeze and a soulful connection with a beloved friend, I feel nurtured.  As I feel the joy and peace fill me, I feel nourished, Mama Cacao’s embrace.  The drink of the Gods, yes, I can understand why Cacao is known as this, for I am filled more from this 1 cup than I am from any other drink or food I have ever tasted.

I can choose to meditate or journey deeper, I can feel energised for longer periods of time, for me this connection with my intentions is a heart connecting soul filling experience.

My daily Ceremonial Grade Cacao has brought benefits to me on an emotional, physical and spiritual level.

In my connection and training with Cacao this has deepened.  I have had the great honour to hold many Cacao ceremonies, where the ripples have brought great joy and connection for others for their own relationship with Cacao.

I am now over the moon that my family run business Crystal Moon Holistic Wellbeing C.I.C. are now offering Accredited Cacao courses with IPHM.  When we looked for a provider of accredited courses, we knew that offering our Cacao courses, along with our other courses was of great importance.  When chatting with IPHM I knew that they were the providers we wanted to go with, when we chatted more about Cacao they added this to their course list and we are now over the moon to be the first in the world to offer Cacao courses with IPHM.

Within our accredited courses for cacao we have a Foundation Cacao course which is about self immersion, connecting with cacao and nourishing oneself, which is a pre requisite for our accredited cacao facilitator course.

We explore self care and self nourishment within the course, as we believe these are the foundational tools for self development and a place to come from as a Facilitator.  

We discuss the difference between chocolate and Ceremonial Grade Cacao, including the nutritional value. We explore more about this superfood which has 40 times more antioxidants than blueberries.  Find out how Ceremonial Grade Cacao can be part of your daily routine with our Foundation Cacao course.

We feel it is vital to honour Cacao, we share more about how to connect with Cacao, the spiritual, science and history, we delve deeply into more aspects and how you can connect with Cacao in a way that works for you with our Accredited Foundation Cacao course.

For those who wish to connect more deeply and feel the call to facilitate their own Cacao Ceremonies, our Accredited Cacao Facilitator course offers this.  With a deep immersion, insight into Mama Cacao, with sacred ways to connect with Cacao, a way to honour group dynamics and so much more.

Why would someone choose to attend a cacao ceremony & what are the benefits?

I feel like many people choose to attend ceremonies to carve out time, to create a window of regulating the nervous system into a place of safety.  Coming together with like minded people where we are creating new imprints of safety and love.  Bringing Cacao into a ceremony is nourishing for all parts of our being from our physical brain, to our thought patterns and emotional world.  This is an opportunity for to chance to connect and just be.  Gifting time to connect with sacred plant medicine, with all of the spiritual and nutritional benefits which are on offer.  By being in sacred ceremony people get to connect with like minded people.  Many people who attend our ceremonies have listed many more benefits for their emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing, as well as self love, appreciation of others, nature and themselves. 

Our Foundation Cacao course offers people the opportunity to experience the affects of Ceremonial Grade Cacao, whilst learning so much more, they get to learn many tips and techniques for their own holistic wellness too.  Our Cacao ceremonies have been described as life changing; we aim to offer an experience where people can reconnect with themselves in a way that they may not be experiencing in day to day life.  Our Cacao courses offer a deeper immersion in how to put this into practice beyond attending our ceremonies, in how they can empower themselves to offer self love, self nourishment to enhance their self development.  This is a heart centred gift to connect with.

 How long does a ceremony last?

The time can vary for how long a Cacao ceremony can last, however, as we often offer a Shacapa healing session with ours, they often last around 2 and a half hours. 

Our Foundation Cacao course is a 7 week immersion, offering 5 live sessions, a online portal and a journal to reflect ones own experiences.


 How many people normally attend?

We have held 1 to 1 Cacao ceremonies and held groups of many people.  However, most often we hold Cacao ceremonies in our beautiful workshop space for 6 to 8 people, creating an experience for everyone with time for everyone too.  Our in person workshops reflect this quality of time too.  We also offer online courses, which have proven to share a great connection of a sacred circle too.
