Bring your journal, water bottle and what you need to be comfortable, as well as an item for the Beltane altar which we will create together.
Past ceremonies have included meditation, guided visualization,
singing, breath-work, toning, sharing in circle, music, dance and more.
On the eve of Beltane, let’s Celebrate Life to the fullest with Ceremonial-grade Cacao. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active, and all of life is bursting with potent fertility. How appropriate that one of Cacao’s main active ingredients is Theobromine (literally God-food), which facilitates the release of dopamine, the “pleasure” hormone.
This day brings the opportunity to celebrate both the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine energies of the universe. The Cacao energy, known as Ixcacao, is often experienced as feminine Shakti energy – life-giving, nourishing and energizing. The sacred Cacao bean was also associated with Xochiquetzal, an Aztec fertility maiden associated with love, beauty, childbirth, feminine sexual power and female crafts.
Supported by the amazing physical and spiritual aspects of Cacao, we will gather in ceremony, create a Beltane altar together, honor the creative energies of this holiday, and celebrate the Goddess in all of us. “Food for the Shift”, cacao acts as fuel for our spiritual evolution by helping us find joy in our hearts, release old pain, and tune into the messages of the soul.
Ceremonial Cacao is provided to you by Christel Libiot and Jim Wert, both with vast experience and knowledge of healing practices. They have led numerous Cacao Ceremonies in the Mid-Atlantic and have a global following. Christel and Jim have together and individually led many Circles, workshops, trainings and ceremonies, and bring decades of experience to this work.
