This sacred native “Criollo Cacao” is originally from the forest of Guatemala by descendants of the original cacao farmers and processed by the Cruz family from the Tz’utujil Mayan tradition. Cacao is one of the most revered and honored plants for the Mayan people and now by many around the world. The spirit of this Cacao is what makes it a powerful healing medicine and heart opener when it is consumed intentionally. 

Nana Marina’s Cacao is 100% Guatemayan from start to finish. This is crucial to mention as the colonization of sacred indigenous plants continue on to this day. Often times the profit greatly benefiting foreigners while the local people work as their employees only and never as actual land owners and/or be truly fairly compensated as the original sacred keepers of this plant. For us, "ethically-sourced" is sacred reciprocity, partnership, and empowerment.

Cacao’s scientific name “Theobroma” means “the food of the Gods” and it was once worth more than gold and utilized as a currency in ancient Mayan times for its sacred medicinal and spiritual powers.

Sample Cacao Ceremony That Honors The Mayan Tradition:

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.
