The ceremony is about taking the time to slow down and focus our
intention on our inner landscape. Cacao is used as an assistant to
help facilitate this process as it opens the heart and adds energy to
your intentions. Within a framework of non-attainment, we allow life
to unfold organically through us, letting layers of belief and pain
from childhood to fall away. As this happens, there is more space for
the stillness of life to show up. We will drink cacao, play with the
energies and take the time to simply be ourselves and let the world be

What we believe about ourselves, others and the world, is not always based in truth. We are effected by our experiences and form beliefs around the events and circumstances that take place in our lives.

It's time to say "yes" my friends.
