I am delighted to begin holding online ceremonies with this really gentle, heart opening and transformative plant medicine ~ Ceremonial Cacao ~ which helps you to open your heart and go within to connect with yourself in a deeper way, to hear your inner guidance, to bring attention to the aspects of you that want to be heard or would like to be healed. This gentle plant medicine can be used in many ways but the way in which I will be bringing it to you is in a Meditative Journey Experience. In our ceremony together drinking cacao will deepen your meditation experience and allow you to fully drop into your heart, body and soul.
I have been working with cacao for my personal use through ceremonies held with wonderful teachers and in my own meditation practice since September 2019 and made the decision to complete my Cacao Facilitator Training to bring Cacao to more people. I have experienced the clearest guidance and created many wonderful things in my life by allowing myself to follow my inner voice but I also have experienced very deep clearing and healing as I navigated through the loss of my Dad, miscarrying our twins and connecting with my true self, which has helped me value myself and understand myself more. This beautiful plant medicine has given me support every step of the way and continues to do so.
For many years I supported women by using my intuition and offering guidance for their life’s path but in early 2021 I moved away from doing that because I truly believe and know that each one of us has the strongest inner voice and guidance that we will ever need and when we disconnect from this we dis-empower ourselves.
Cacao is the very plant medicine that can help each of us to connect with our inner voice again and trust our own intuition and our guidance. It allows our inner emotions and thoughts to rise to the surface so we can look at them from a new perspective and from a compassionate place. We can empower ourselves by tapping into the very parts of us that are filled with light and can facilitate our personal transformation. It helps us to improve our self-love, self-compassion and acceptance in a gentle and loving way.

Important details to note before booking (Safety & Contraindications):
Cacao contains a gentle stimulant called Theobromine but for some people this stimulant can cause issues if you are dealing with any of the following:
High Blood Pressure or Heart Conditions: The advice regarding drinking cacao is that if you have these conditions you can still do a ceremony but a lower dose would be recommended. Please contact me for dosage details.
Anti- Depressants: If you are taking an anti-depressant with SSRIs or MAO Inhibitors it is not advised to drink cacao as it can have negative effects.
Pregnant/Breastfeeding: The advice regarding drinking cacao is that it is safe if you are pregnant or breastfeeding but a lower dose would be recommended. Please contact me for dosage details.
New to Cacao: If you experience too much cacao in the system you can experience nausea, headaches or stomach upset. For this reason, I would suggest that anyone who is new to cacao to take a lower dose initially. Please contact me for dosage details.
Cacao also has some wonderful properties that are beneficial to the body:
Provides powerful antioxidants called flavonoids, which are up to 6 times greater in raw chocolate.
It is anti-inflammatory.

Contains Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B8, C & E
It has heart-healthy fat and oleic acid.
