About The Event
We will set on a journey inside with the healing sounds and raw cacao, which has been used in ceremonies in South America for thousands of years and is considered sacred. Cacao supports us to communicate easily with our inner guidance and the vibrations of healing sounds open up the field to a deeper level.
During the ceremony, we can free ourselves from the burdens, get rid of negative or old emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and thinking patterns that no longer serve us. While receiving healing at a cellular level in the magical vibrational field of sacred sound, cacao works especially on the blockages of the heart and opens up a space to live the feeling of being connected with our inner self, truth, divine light in love and gratitude. In this inner journey, the inaudible becomes heard, the invisible becomes visible.
Every ceremony and experience is unique.
* No prior experience is needed, everyone is welcome!
HISTORY OF CACAO
With its 4000 years of history, it is an ancient plant used in important ceremonies in Central and South America. The Mayans mix the ground cacao beans with water and pour it from one vessel to another to consume it as a thick foamy ceremonial drink which is called “ka’kau”, chokola”. In Latin, the cacao tree is called Theobroma cacao, which means “Food of the Gods”.
WHAT IS CEREMONIAL CACAO?
Ceremonial cacao is 100% raw cacao that has not lost its benefits and nutritional value unlike the processed cacao. For this reason, it is accepted as a “superfood” which is an important supplement food supporting our physical, emotional, mental health.

The purity of this ancient plant with its wisdom allows us to experience the quality of our journey at the highest level in body, mind, spirit.
