CACAO is known to the Ancient Mayan culture as the ‘Food of the Gods’. The active constituent in Cacao is called theobromine, and it also literally translates to the same ‘Food of the Gods’ in Ancient Latin.

It has been used for thousands of years in Ceremony and Ritual as a way of Connecting to the Sacred Plant Spirit of the Cacao, a higher source that can give us a greater perspective on life and help us to see our way creatively through challenges and change.

Cacao is much more than just chocolate as we know it.

Sacred Chocolate Cacao Ceremonies takes us on a very deep and transformational Shamanic journey.

With focused intention and awareness in Ceremony, working with the Spirit of Cacao as our ally, we can consciously explore our inner world, so that we are able to reach and access deep healing, revelation, integration and lasting transformation.

At the same time remembering who we really are by returning to our purest essence. Tapping into that abounding and limitless source of joy and bliss that is our true nature and resides within us all!

We are merging Ancient Wisdom with our Modern Age.



For 1000s of years in the Mayan lands, Alchemists have known that Cacao can unlock the secrets to the soul. Cacao can be utilized to expedite inner work, facilitating creative energy, yet its different to other plant medicines in that it does not carry you away on a journey, but rather it supports you wherever you are, amplifying whatever is happening inside. Cacao serves as a facilitator for deep medItation and inward journeying if taken with trained facilitators in the right context and desire to connect with our higher consciousness. Together we feel supported focus and discover that when we let go we are thrust into the present, our patterns and our limiting ideas no longer restrict us. Letting go is a choice made moment by moment with sincerity and presence. Between seeing how much energy we use in protecting and suppressing ourselves and how much energy is released when we reveal ourselves, it takes us to the spaces inside where transformation and healing are welcome.


Cacao is strong and bitter; it detoxifies and cleanses the liver. With over 300 individual ingredients, cacao truly is a superfood. It is amongst the richest sources of magnesium. After the release of dopamine, endorphins, tryptophan, phenylethylamine and serotonin, is the release of anandamine. When you consume Cacao prepared for Ceremony using high quality raw cacao beans *like what Ajna uses from Guatemala* all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao become particularly active. Most people report feeling a sensation of peace or extreme focus in the safe open space of the ceremony with the elixir of love. Ajna has sat with Cacao shamans in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala the Mayan lands, and received the blessings to bring ceremonial cacao around the world in its truest raw form for deep healing and ecstatic bliss connecting to the sacred lands where the cacao grows.


Within the Cacao ceremony, there is a simple and deep workshop. A process of self inquiry and awareness through interactions in various formats; solo meditations ,group dynamics and partner work bring light to our patterns, habits and beliefs, seeing our shadows and opening to our truth. We begin with the ceremonial opening of the 7 directions and our intention. There will be movement and dance with Osho techniques. For inner work, we will alternate between deep solo activities such as pranayamas and visualization meditations, and partner work with white tantric techniques (such as heart meditations and transfigurations, solsara deep listening and healing the 5 bodies) to allow clarity and transformation to blossom. During the activities, if you experience a strong re-occuring thought or movement of energy in your body, focus on it- this is your message. Through the medium of cacao, we find a space of true connection where our essence reveals itself and opens to profound nourishment and deep heart opening. Ultimately, prana leads us to our core and to the space in us that never says a word, and is conscious of all in rest.

“For me, a major advantage to ceremonial cacao is that participants, once beyond the novelty of having their brain flushed with the 30-40% greater blood flow that cacao brings, are able to hold a good multidimensional focus for at least 4-5 hours, allowing more time for deep work with much less mental or emotional fatigue. Many find that as their meditational focus-holding ability improves and they learn to work on other levels. A second major advantage is that ceremonial cacao makes it much easier (for those who are willing) to deeply access their emotional body, pain body, or density on the dark shadow side… or ready expansion and higher dimensional connection on the light shadow side. Especially in a vibrationally supportive non-fixing and non-judgmental setting, many go considerably deeper than they otherwise would…” — Keith Wilson, the Cacao Shaman

Sacred Cacao creates connection, opening the heart and awakening the minds eye so that we may feel and hearts wisdom and highest intuition.

An Indigenous myth recalls that when the Earth and its people are out of balance, the cacao/sacred chocolate will come out of the rainforest to open peoples hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony and balance.

Cacao is the pathway to the hearts calling. This small and beautiful bean is so revered for its heart opening effects that its journey has carried it worldwide.
