Known as a "Heart Opener," Cacao is used in ceremonial context as a way to deepen the experience of a self-healing journey. This beautiful plant ally supports us through physical, emotional, and energetic healing. We invite you to experience the gentle potency of this ceremony by going beyond what you know of chocolate to meet the natural source.  

While each Ceremony in the series is a stand alone experence, they will build upon one another and attending the full series will provide maximum healing beenfits to deepen your own process.

YES! I am READY to experience a Cacao Ceremony!

Cacao has been used for millennia in both medicine and ceremony by the ancient Meso-americans. 

Our cacao ceremony is a safe space that supports relaxation, meditation, and a connection to your deepest self. Cacao itself is considered a “heart opener” and is not only healing for the heart chakra itself, but our cardiovascular organs as well. 

During the Cacao ceremony, you have the opportunity to be held through this sacred ritual in a guided meditative journey. This facilitation will bring about healing, relaxation, and support your overall holistic health.  

Our ceremonial cacao is vegan, paleo, and soy free. It is also the best natural source of magnesium and chromium, and contains many other trace minerals. Unlike cocoa powder, ceremonial cacao paste includes cacao butter, a high-grade natural fat is the most effective carrier of cacao's medicinal benefits.  

The ceremony will take place in a seated and/or lying down position with support, and is suitable for all mobility levels. No previous experience with Cacao or meditation is needed to participate. All persons aged 13 and up may participate, but anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.  

Space is limited to ensure support and facilitation at the highest level for each participant. All ceremonies are advanced registration ONLY. Due to the nature of preparing the Cacao, we cannot accommodate day of event registrations.*

Please email with any questions

Megan and Elisha also offer private ceremonies for you and for your partner, family, or group. Email us to create something just for you! 

“Chocolate is a divine, celestial drink, the sweat of the stars, the vital seed, divine nectar, the drink of the gods, panacea and universal medicine.” ~Antonio Lavedán 


If you have any significant health challenges (i.e. having chemotherapy treatment) or are on high levels of anti-depressants (Those that use MAO inhibitors to treat depression are contraindicated with Cacao. Check your medication to see if this is the case.), this could preclude you from working with Cacao in a ceremonial context as it can cause severe migraines.  

Cacao can also contribute to a lowering of blood pressure, so if you are on blood pressure medicine, please check your medication contra-indicators. 

Serious Heart Conditions: cacao can slightly increase heart rate and is a vasodilator, so if you have a serious heart condition this is not an appropriate event. 

If you are Pregnant or breastfeeding: Please check with your doctor. 

Preparation required for this event: We strongly encourage no caffeine on the day of ceremony. We also recommend you to follow a fairly simple and alkaline focused diet the day before, and on the day of the ceremony (including avoiding alcohol).  

The plant will meet you were you are at on your journey but spending some time getting clear on your intention will aid you in having a potent experience in ceremony. 

You’ll also need to arrange a quiet, gentle evening for after the event as symptoms of physical and emotional detoxification can arise unique to each individual.  

We work with Organic Raw Cacao Paste: Exceptional quality cacao beans that have been milled very finely but not roasted or processed in any other way.
