Private Ceremony

Cacao is a powerful partner with emotional and creative processes. Come and join me in the serenity of our ceremony space in Treeby, immersed in nature but still just 30 minutes from Fremantle and Perth. Together we slow down and call on the spirit of cacao to join us in your journeying wherever it is you need to go.

A one to one session or small group ceremony with ceremonial cacao can be incredibly powerful for:

  • Honouring a special transition or rite of passage for you or a loved one – eg Mother Blessing, Birthday, Anniversary or First Menstrual Cycle
  • Creating space around blockages in Creative Projects or Heart Purpose and Vision
  • Team bonding, brain storming and creative planning
  • Honouring and embracing the heart ache and gift of Grief, Loss and Depression
  • Embracing your sensitivity – (particularly powerful for empaths & highly sensitive persons)

A 2 hour deep heart immersion into this sacred plant medicine is a beautiful experience to share with friends or work colleagues, to reconnect with yourself and each other – opening to creativity and your heart’s deepest longings. Read more about cacao on our Cacao Ceremony page.

“There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through your veins. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.” ⠀

Who is Your Facilitator

Lani is a lover of ceremonial cacao and the power of this gentle heart medicine. She is the Founder of Perth’s first Cacao Cafe in Bibra Lake and now has a dedicated ceremony space in Treeby. Dedicated to a life of inner enquiry, service and embodiment she has a curiosity for truth, nature and sharing the wisdom of the Heart.

In 2012 while travelling overseas she found herself living in Guatemala sitting many cacao ceremonies with a cacao shaman. A love affair began and she lived in the very beautiful Lake Atitlan on and off for the next 4 years and her journey with the spirit of cacao connected her to something very beautiful – the richness of life lived from Gentleness. Kindness. Sweetness.

“Her presence and her gentle hand holding mine is always present. I believe she stays with me because She helped me wake up to something so beautiful in me – the richness of life lived from Gentleness. Kindness. Sweetness. She helped me to Allow life to truly touch me and to connect with my own innate creativity and wisdom.”

While teaching a yoga and meditation class in Peru she discovered the magic of ceremonial cacao combined with yoga. Now she lives in Perth and shares her connection to cacao with others in group ceremonies and private sessions and in the heART of Rest Cafe and Wellness Centre. She is part of an international group of cacao practitioners each sharing their connection to cacao in their own unique ways (yoga, meditation, dance, reiki, sound healing, corporate training just to name a few). Her passion is supporting others to find their unique connection to 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.

Her style of yoga and her connection to the cacao spirit are an authentic, powerful mix that takes everyone deep into what they need in the moment.

“Lani holds such a beautiful space. She allows you to drop in so deep into whatever process you are needing and allows you to feel so supprted and nourished. I always come out ‘different’ from any of her classes. There is really such magic that is experienced there. So grateful.” ~ Sarah

“Lani’s yin yoga class is just lovely. You’ll be gently guided by the rhythm of her calm voice seducing you into the postures but more important into the silence and heartspace. At the end of the class I was left with a grounded felt-sense of my body and a stilled peaceful mind. Sometimes even in pure bliss. Open to allow the sunlight in or to move into a quiet relaxing eve ready for a good night sleep.” ~ Evy

“As a facilitator and teacher of the wisdom of cacao, Lani has a skill at translating the innate and deep wisdom of ancient traditions into an easily understood and applicable way. She informs participants and trainees of the practical and emotional benefits of cacao, yoga and stillness so that one is informed and inspired to integrate the practises into ones daily life. As a facilitator of cacao ceremonies, she creates a safe space for individuals to drop into the depths of their internal world and reconnect with the inherit wisdom that lies within. As a teacher, she provides important frameworks by which to work with cacao in a respectful, safe and nurturing way. She is a highly professional business woman with a wealth of knowledge and experiences. I highly recommend Lani as both a facilitator of cacao ceremonies and a teacher of learning the art of sacred ritual.” ~ Jae
