Join the Woke Wisdom Community for weekly sacred cacao gatherings.
The sacred tradition of drinking ceremonial cacao has its origin in the ancient cultures, used to evoke IXCACAO - goddess of Chocolate, Fertility, and Abundance. She was also known as the "Queen of Love and Pleasure", connected with the energy of the heart - the ultimate Divine Feminine energy.
Conscious Circulation - $35 per person.

We have limited spots and, more importantly, we need to know the number of participants in order to prepare the right amount of the cacao drink.
Your contribution of $35 paid with your booking - email email@example.com to book.
This wonderful plant-medicine, which is harvested and packed in the sacred lands in Guatemala by Keith, the chocolate shaman, is available in Wellington for regular gatherings.
Through Keith's Cacao, we will open space for shared love, creativity, meditation, dancing, journaling, and emotional release. For magic.
Claire and Saxon will be guiding the cacao ceremony and being heartful space holders for us to explore the magic of this sacred medicine. As well as our personal intentions, we will set a collective intention of bringing greater balance and harmony to the world by anchoring more love and light into our bodies by allowing ourselves to dip into our shadow to heal. The balance between light and dark is very important, and LxCacao helps us to do this work with ease.
Why is cacao referred to as medicine?
Cacao is an aphrodisiac, mood enhancer, an antioxidant that protects the heart and is densely packed with nutrients, cacao is a nutritional powerhouse, proven to be the most pharmacologically complex food in nature. It can improve your memory, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and create loads of energy.
Cacao contains the neurotransmitters serotonin, tryptophan, and dopamine - the chemicals responsible for feelings of well-being, as well as anandamide, known as the bliss molecule that leaves us feeling blissful and euphoric, moderating pain perception, as well as assisting in regulating appetite and mood.
When high-quality raw cacao beans are prepared for ceremony, all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao become particularly active. It increases blood flow and nutrition to the brain, heart, and skin, and the whole body is nourished. People report heightened awareness, focus, and intensified sensations.
Chocolate Shaman, Keith Wilson, whose cacao I use, lives in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala and has been working with cacao for over 12 years. He uses cacao for spiritual and shamanic purposes and processes his own cacao under instruction from the “cacao spirit.” Keith refers to cacao as the “food for the shift”.
