Cacao - Plant Medicine


Cacao ceremonies have been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance.


In shamanic traditions, ceremonial grade cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and inner healing. It's used in ceremonial ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, bliss states are unlocked and negative emotions are released.


Cacao is used heal the mental, physical and spiritual body. It is a natural and ancient plant medicine, with a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and is a powerful antioxidant. Cacao also increases blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to the brain as well as induces the release of feel-good endorphins.

Cacao translates to "Food of the Gods"'s rich in theobromine which helps us with clarity and focus, anandamide, the "Bliss Molecule"; flavonoids (natural antioxidants which protect us from disease); magnesium which assists with energy, healthy sleeping patterns and general well being; and increases the flow of healing oxygen to our organs and tissues.

'What a wonderful experience. Thank you Sorcha for organising this. I never thought I would be drinking chocolate in a circle of strangers on a Sunday afternoon. The ceremony was so beautifully held and the cacao was just delicious. I left feeling happier, fuller, more positive and with a feeling of deep peace that continued in the days following the ceremony. The venue was fabulous. A wonderful warm welcoming space, would recommend visiting this gem in North Leitrim.', Caroline Flynn
