Art in Sacred Space
Cacao Ceremony & Art
the next ceremony will be announced soon
Nourish the heart and connect with your creative energy through the guidance of Cacao medicine. The workshop invites you to create from your heart, and acknowledge your true dreams and desires.
It is time for all of us to move into our heart space and allow our soul to guide our life. Only then we can experience true flow and the real magic of this reality. When we remember that we are love we can truly flourish and can become a positive mirror for others.
The workshop combines Cacao Ceremony, Shamanic Meditation and Intuitive Painting. There is no need to have previous experience in any of these practices, the only requirement is a gentle and open mind.
This event is in collaboration with Maria Fatme from Aya Pacha, a wonderful project that promotes sustainable & natural products, and ancestral medicine https://ayapacha.com/
Cacao is an ancestral medicine that has been found to be used in South America as far back as 5450 years ago in the highlands of Ecuador by the ancient culture Mayo Chinchipe.
Archeological contemporary findings show that Cacao was used for ritual and ceremonial purposes but also as an every day super food because of the various nutritional compounds such as Theobromine, an important compound responsible of converting the food into energy in our body. This is the reason why Cacao has been named as The Food of the Goods by ancient civilizations such as Mayan, Aztec and Inka.

Art Materials: Acrylic paint (primary colours) and paper. Normally we work on A2/A3 but you can also stick a few A4 together with some masking tape. Oil pastels and crayons can work too, however some paint will allow more freedom during the process.
