Ceremonial grade cacao is a pure, raw form of chocolate that is used in traditional indigenous ceremonies and rituals as a means of connecting with the spirit world. Mama Cacao is a powerful plant ally and teacher who lovingly embraces us, bringing teachings, guidance, and sweetness to our lives.

Often referred to as “the food of the Gods”, traditional Cacao was used in ancient Mayan times as a form of currency due to its medicinal properties.  Cacao carries ancient healing wisdom that has been used by traditional cultures for centuries.  It offers spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing, and connects us to the Creator.

Our Heirloom Belize Cacao comes from three hundred indigenous Q'eqchi' and Mopan Maya family farms across the region, who grow their pure raw cacao with a deep respect and understanding of the local ecology. This medicine comes in the form of cacao chips, rather than in entire 1lb blocks. This makes dosage super easy.

When working with ceremonial cacao, we invite you to utilize prayer and intention and create a ritual around your communion. Below are some tips to creating a sacred ritual with cacao.

Sample Cacao Ceremony:

Prepare the Space: Smudge with copal or another smudging agent to clear the space and invite the spirits of Nature to join you in prayer. You can light candles or put on ceremonial music or add any other elements that you feel called to your ritual.

Intention: Set a clear intention which honors the plant first, then your journey and experience second.

Honor: Take a moment to acknowledge the Original Keepers of tradition, their efforts and sacrifices.

Offering: Make an offering, whether to the spirit of the cacao, the earth, the waters, etc. It’s always good to give thanks by giving back in the form of an offering for all of which we receive. Your offering can be in the form of flowers, copal/herbs, songs, prayers, etc. We always like to offer the best of the best and not just what we have left.

Gratitude: Gratitude is the most important part of our rituals. We give thanks to our ancestors, to the four elements, the four directions, the spirit of the plant(s), the sacred sites, etc.
