About the Event
You are invited to join us for this powerfully uplifting and euphoric journey to discover and explore the magic of our ceremonial grade sacred Cacao.
Seated in upright chairs, we form a circle of unity and together we embark on an adventure of soul healing, releasing what no longer serves our path and connecting to the divine nature of our true selves. Through a series of rituals including intention setting, meditation, aura cleansing, digging deep within and establishing a strong connection to our heart space and whilst becoming aligned with the loving energies that each of us possess. In doing so, releasing emotional attachments and past hurts to simply focus on returning back to our pure form. With intentions set and Cacao received, endorphins freely flowing and a state of euphoria reached, we begin our theraputic journey to explore the deeper essence of the Cacao spirit enabling balance and peace within, complemented by the shamanic drumbeat, the followed by journeying with the gongs.
Pure Cacao Contains Many Beneficial Minerals
Consuming cacao can replenish minerals vital to our body. Magnesium is chronically deficient in the majority of western diets, and cacao is the highest naturally occurring source. Magnesium is used in all key brain functions, especially memory and concentration. It is also beneficial for the function of the heart, acting to relax blood vessels and decrease strain. Besides magnesium, cacao is also the highest naturally occurring source of chromium, and also high in copper, calcium, manganese, zinc, sulfur, iron, and phosphorous.
The Positive Impacts of Cacao on Mood Regularly working with ceremonial cacao can have therapeutic health benefits, including creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection. Pure cacao contains beneficial neurotransmitters and neuro-modulators already present in our brain, most notably including:
Norepinephrine - The joy molecule
Serotonin - Helps with wellbeing, and creates resistance to stress. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors, that inhibit re-uptake of serotonin.
Dopamine - Gives feelings of motivation and pleasure. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors, that inhibit re-uptake of dopamine.
Anandamine - The bliss molecule, it moderates pain, and is associated with the "runners high" effect. Cacao also has N-linoleoylethanolamine, the re-uptake inhibitor for anandamine.
Phenylethylamine (PEA) - Helps with excitement, alertness, attention. Gives the perception of time slowing down.
Snacks and chats to finish.
