my experience with the Cacao Ceremony I honestly did not know what to expect as I had never heard of this Ceremony before. But still I was excited to experience it all the same. I was pleasantly met with a warm welcome and a thorough break down of the Cacao process. The process was equally calming and interesting as it was very informative. I’m grateful having experienced this practice and shall continue to explore its spiritual subtleties in hopes to expand more into the benefits of this unique practice.
