THE SPIRIT OF CACAO
The Spirit of Cacao is a teacher, a keeper of ancient, sacred wisdom. The Spirit of the plant (the energy behind the form) is radiant energy, like a loving embrace, a balm for the soul. Cacao's energy is respected as a feminine force, a rainbow medicine that allows you to feel connected between Earth and Cosmos. It is said that the ritual around Cacao was guarded by the Mayan elders until it was time to share it with the world to bring peace and understanding. Mama Cacao speaks to our heart and root so we can connect lovingly with ourselves, others and the world around us.
We will drink a cup of chocolate together, bring our hearts in one beat and rhythm, and invite Mama Cacao, the Nature Spirits, and the elements into our circle. In the Sun Celebration Ceremonies (Equinoxes & Solstices) we will bring attention to our roots and weave the wisdom of the Celtic wheel with the wisdom of the Cacao Collective. The intention is to root into the heart of the Earth while building a bridge to the heart of the forest. From here, we will offer blessing and prayer to the heart of the sky nurturing the invisible harmony that surrounds us.
EUROPEAN Medicine · Weaving a LIVING Bridge INTO THE HEART OF THE FOREST
We at Cacao Mama have been guided by the Cacao Collective to work with the native European medicine wheel and align our messages and teachings with the wisdom of the European ancestors and the wisdom of the land. Thus we have created a bridge that allows us to feel the roots and wisdom of Central Europe and its ancestral consciousness while serving a plant from Central America. We use this bridge to heal the wounds from the past and remember our innate connection with the living world.
It is said that the European medicine wheel that we know of today is a fusion of Germanic and Celtic cultures. One culture chose the sun with four cardinal points as their main guiding principle, the other culture chose the moon indicating the four cross-quarter dates. Today these two are commonly known as the Celtic Wheel and you will find eight major seasonal celebrations throughout the year. This wheel is remembered as a beautiful tool that gives orientation in times of great and rapid change.
Hello, my name is Serap and I welcome you! I'm a medicine woman, moon dancer, earth guardian, teacher and the founder of Cacao Mama and the Earth School.
When I met the Cacao Spirit in 2011 they shared with me: 'We want to be golden again'. This has been Cacao Mama's mission since the founding in Spring 2014 and I've helped to open the consciousness for the Spirit across the borders of Europe. I've shared the space with people from all over the world and all walks of life in hundreds of ceremonies, medicine circles and learning experiences. I love to create finely tuned spaces to root into trust and receive permission, so that we may remember our natural state of Spirit connection and the way of ceremony to be in service to a greater harmony.
My medicine heart beats in rhythm with Mother Earth. I love to weave finely tuned healing experiences to reconnect you with the invisible harmony that surrounds us. My work with cacao is shamanic in nature and focuses on the energy of the earth. At the same time a cosmic space opens up, which provides light codes. In this connection a gentle and powerful opportunity opens up, whereby we can touch the magic.
The zoom link will be sent to you upon registration through earthschool.love. Please check your 'others' folder. If you haven't received the link on the day of the ceremony until 4.00 pm, please get in touch.
Plant vibration is subtle. You can tune in very nicely by eating a vegetarian or vegan diet for a few days and avoiding alcohol, dairy products and heavy foods. The day of the Ceremony it is nice to refrain from coffee, and not to eat two hours before the ceremony.
For the ceremony you need:
- A comfortable and quiet space
- Your ceremonial Cacao kept warm eg in a flask
- A glass of water
- Notebook and pen
