Cacao Ceremonies

A Cacao Ceremony is a ritual that honours the sacred plant medicine cacao, the elements, and the spirits of nature.

The Cacao Ceremony

Cacao ceremonies allow a harmonious connection with all living beings and facilitate a beautiful space to express gratitude for life itself. A Ceremony is a way to connect fully with the heart energy and oneself.

Ceremonies are practiced for both spiritual and medicinal purposes where pure cacao is usually consumed in a beautiful liquor drink.

During these sacred ceremonies participants set intentions, surrender to what is and open to releasing non-serving energies. Consumption of ceremonial cacao supports awakening, creativity, enhanced mood, heart opening, emotional release and manifestation.

What happens?

During ceremonies, you will often connect to your intuitive centre and higher self to receive guidance, insights or energetic shifts to assist healing, release blockages and allow the flow of abundance into your life.

Ceremonies can facilitate feelings of wholesomeness, warmth and love. The ceremonies can be therapeutic, helping to raise your vibrational energy field and hit higher levels of self-love, self-belief and spiritual connectedness. In addition to all these benefits, this spiritual journey helps you connect to your highest self and open up to your hidden truths.

Making Shifts...

If you are looking to shift old habits and emotional blockages or you are looking to connect deeply to yourself, let go of past experiences and old traumas or you simply want to feel loved, blissful and euphoric then cacao is calling you. These ceremonies can provide the space you need to re-align with who you are and get to where you want to be.

Gathering together as one to drink the sacred cacao is a magical experience that helps us connect deeply to our spirit, supports healing and inspires those who are present.

“It is a mysterious product, rendered sacred, but for reasons never clearly stated … Linked to the earth and the cyclical nature of human life, it both mediates and transcends relationships between humans and the forces that animate the earth”
Prufer and Hurst 2007

What to expect at Shanes ceremonies

Guests are welcomed to the space and asked to find a comfortable spot. The room and each participant will be smudged for cleansing, purifying, and connection.

A safe environment is set for you to connect with yourself, the spirit of cacao, and others in the circle, usually in a deeper way than in a yoga or meditation class. It is a space where participants feel safe to experience the ceremony and feel held in the space enabling them to express anything that comes up physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

Giving Thanks

The group will learn about the cacao they are drinking, and how it was prepared then led through a cacao blessing where we will honour and drink the plant medicine.

Shane and his co-facilitators will guide the group through various exercises and experiences based on the intentions of the ceremony.

Some examples of guided experiences are meditations, breathwork, sound baths, and ecstatic dance.

To finish and bring the ceremony to a close we explore insights, share experiences, and give thanks to the indigenous people, ancestors, spirits and each other.

Join a Ceremony

Shane’s ceremonies started in Surrey and have been hugely successful. They are consistently being filled months in advance and in many cases before they even go on sale.
