Journey into the Heart Cacao Ceremony

“I believe the magic of the most beautiful heart centred teachers – particularly plant medicines is to reveal to you the gifts that already lay inside of you. To help you appreciate the subtleties of this beautiful life.” ~ Lani

Come share a sacred pause, rest, reflect and explore the wisdom that resides within you from the space of a well rested body a clear mind and an open, connected, playful heart.

Open to all genders this is a journey into the heART of the slow, connected, tender and nourishing ways of ceremonial cacao, gentle yoga, tantra, meditation and reflections to inspire the openness of the heart and mind.

Throughout the journey you’ll be blessed with an intentional soundscape to inspire your mind, body and soul to fly freely.

Such a beautiful space is allowed when we slow down together, connecting to our own natural rhythm – giving ourselves and each other permission to rest and be exactly as we are.

Who is Your Facilitator
Lani’s heart, soul and spirit rests in a love for cacao, nature and embodiment practices. Inspired by the power ceremonial cacao provides in HEALING, CREATIVITY and CONNECTION Lani offers cacao ceremonies and yoga for emotional balance. She is a qualified yoga and meditation instructor and has studied Grief, Loss and Trauma counselling, Tantra, Feminine embodiment practices, Yoga for Trauma and Psoas release. The call to work with the spirit of cacao came while Lani lived in Guatemala receiving training and guidance from a cacao shaman.

Her passion is supporting others to find their unique connection to soul and the spirit of cacao. With a passion for embracing life in all its beautiful humanness Lani gently guides her students on a deep journey through the body into the Heart and Soul.

What is a Cacao Ceremony
A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to welcome the wisdom and beauty of mother earth and plant medicines. An invitation to see all life as precious and as having a great wisdom to share with us when we slow down long enough to LISTEN.

From a more practical perspective cacao is C H O C O L A T E in it’s original unrefined form. That is, without having any of it’s properties removed – most cacao’s that you buy in healthfood stores or online have had the cacao butter removed. In it’s whole form cacao has an incredible list of benefits for the mind, body & heart, including:⠀

* Theobromine, a known vasodilator that acts as a “driver” of nutrients and chemicals into the tissues.
* Magnesium for a healthy heart, brain & relaxation of muscles⠀
* Antioxidants to help defend against free radicals that cause tissue damage⠀
* Iron that is readily absorbed by your body
* Natural mood elevator – phenylethylamine (PEA) – nature’s own anti-depressant.
* Cannabinoid neurotransmitter called anandamide, the word anandamide is derived from the Sanskrit word, ananda, meaning, bliss.

During each cacao ceremony we set an intention to allow this beautiful gentle plant based medicine to help us:⠀
~ open to our creative potential⠀
~ connect in with our natural state of ease and relaxation⠀
~ connect with our heart
~ reveal warmth and joy at our very core

If you find yourself sometimes lost in the loop of the overthinking or anxious mind or suffer from tension in the body that just doesn’t want to let go – cacao is a great way to invite in relaxation, calmness and a sense of wellbeing.⠀She is also a powerful tool for focussing and gaining clarity in creative projects and team connections.

We believe in chocolate heart alchemy and the support cacao provides you to connect with the wisdom of your Heart. She is an incredible tool for creative works, team building, meditation, conflict resolution, emotional processing, journeying, therapy, group facilitation, sound healing, kirtan and coaching…in the words of our chocolate shaman:

she is truly helpful, a major facilitator from inner change and play – to outer creativity and productivity, all with a heart-centred focus.’ ~ Keith Wilson
