Cacao Ceremony

Soul Sessions is a space nourish your mind, body and soul. Join me, Olivia for an evening to pause, relax and give some love and attention to your inner self.

Cacao Ceremony

Journaling, Breathwork, Restorative movement, Meditation

Enhanced by:
Beautiful music, poetry, oracle card readings.


We’ll open by sharing some Cacao, a heart opening medicine that helps to ignite soft, nurturing, loving energy within us (more info on cacao below).

We’ll then do some gentle, flowy movement, to connect to your body, and give it some love & deep nourishment. 

Then I’ll guide you through a heart opening meditation and leave some time for your own inner journey. To switch off, enjoy the beautiful music and let the energy of cacao work its magic

At the end there is time for some guided journaling, card readings and connection with others if you wish. Every Soul Sessions is different. I tune into whatever energies are present at the time and create a theme to guide the session.

Drinking Cacao in it’s purest form allows a deeper connection to ourselves, our own intuition, and inner guidance. Through intention, these sessions can help in releasing what no longer serves you, calling magic into your life, getting clarity, and so much more.

Maybe you need some healing, some rest, or some help being present. Or maybe something you’d like to manifest in your life. Come along with an intention, whatever it is, you are so welcome here. I’ve prepared this ceremony with so much love. I hope you can join me.

With heart,

More about the gathering:
The restorative movement is slow paced and suitable for all levels, to help connect with your body, bringing love and attention to parts of our inner selves that need it. It’s not about burning calories or anything strenuous. It’s about moving intuitively, to build the habit of listening to your body.

Every cacao facilitator will do their ceremonies differently. My intention is to make everyone
〰️ Welcome
〰️ Rested
〰️ Nurtured
〰️ Calm
〰️ Reflective
〰️ Connected to their body & soul
〰️ Safe to feel whatever they need to feel

There’s no sharing, or any group interaction. Except at the end if you wish to have some chats. It’s very much an inner experience. Slow and grounding.

What is Cacao?
While chocolate is derived from cacao, raw ceremonial grade cacao is made with integrity in Guatemala and Peru, the lands from which it comes from. It has been ethically produced by the indigenous people who have used it for ceremonial, spiritual and medicinal purposes for centuries and honor its sacredness.

Cacao, sometimes referred to as Mama Cacao, is a gentle plant medicine that works with your consciousness almost like a gentle, nurturing hug from Mother Earth herself.

Cacao is a heart opener, both energetically and physically, helping us to get out of our heads and into our hearts, where deeper meditation and connection with ourselves can happen with ease.

Cacao is also a superfood containing anandamide, theobromine, magnesium, iron and flavanoids.
Anandamide – Known as the “bliss molecule”, the word “Ananda” is sanskrit and means happiness and really helps to boost our mood and feelings of love, joy and acceptance.

Theobromine – Promotes the release of dopamine with cognitive enhancement properties it improves our focus and concentration, helping us get much deeper into our meditation and helps with connecting to our inner selves.

Cacao is packed with magnesium, iron, calcium, anti-oxidants and other things that make it
one of the world’s most nourishing superfoods.

Please make sure to bring:
– Yoga Mat
– Pen and Journal 
– Any crystals or important items you would like to add to the altar
– Water

Please read to prepare for drinking Cacao:
Avoid caffeinated drinks at least 5 hours before the Ceremony, if possible avoid
completely on the day.
Avoid heavy meals 3 hours before.
All of these recommendations are to create a clean channel within our bodies to allow the Cacao to be absorbed better and the energy to flow freely without any obstacles.
These are just reccommendations but always listen to your body and only do what
feels right to you.

Health Precautions:
If you are taking anti-depressants, SSRI’s, have heart conditions, just have half the cup of cacao that I serve. Same goes for pregnancy, unless you consume it regularly and know that you are ok with it. 
Feel free to reach out to me at with any queries before we gather.
