2nd September - 30th December, 2020
Registration is now closed
The Cacao Mama Ceremony Training is a guided online training and a journey into the loving consciousness of Cacao. The Ceremony training is an offering for people who wish to learn the art of holding a Cacao Ceremony or have started to facilitate Cacao rituals and ceremonies already and wish to gain a solid foundation and a deeper understanding on how Cacao weaves her medicine magic within a sacred group setting.
Our four month study includes part one from the Cacao Mama practitioner guidebook for self-study, accompanied by monthly live video calls, exercises, audio material and two live-ceremonies providing an energetic bridge to come into alignment with the ancient teachings of the Cacao Spirit. Commit to be in service to a unifying consciousness and receive Cacao's ancestral wisdom and global mission. This training concludes with a certificate of completion and a blessing from Cacao Mama.
The training is led by Serap Kara. Serap's teaching has been rooted in dedicated service to Cacao for almost a decade, and she shares deep wisdom and a global perspective. Her approach is earth-rooted and stellar, warm, kind, and supportive. Serap offers avenues to connect with Spirit, find and trust our unique medicine ways and expand into a greater consciousness in which everything is interconnected.
A Ceremony is a way of the heart and reflects humanity's sacred connection and relationship with the (un)seen worlds. Cacao Ceremonies respond to an increasing longing for connection, ritual and ceremony in an urban environment.

Hello, my name is Serap and I welcome you! I'm a Medicine Woman, earth guardian, teacher and the founder of Cacao Mama and the Earth School.
When I met the Cacao Spirit ten years ago she 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.
Cacao Mama has become a guide and midwife for an awakened consciousness and I'm sharing her essence with our global community. Cacao Mama is for the lovers, the tenders, the teachers, healers, speakers and ambassadors in and outside of you. Cacao Mama's medicine heart beats in rhythm with Mother Earth. May you be guided while you remember your roots and trust your unique medicine way for weaving the golden threads for a peacefully connected global culture. May you offer your power and voice to speak up for the preciousness of life.
The Cacao Mama Ceremony training is the foundation of our Cacao School teachings, a four month in-depth online training for people who wish to learn or deepen the art of holding a Cacao Ceremony in alignment with the Spirit.
This course is open for people from all walks of life.Previous experience with Cacao in Ceremony is not a requirement. You may feel drawn to the training with an inner calling to remember your sacred connection and relationship with the teacher Cacao. A calling which will lead you into a deeper understanding of plants, nature and mother earth.
The course includes monthly live-calls, two live-ceremonies, audio meditations, homework assignments and part one of the Cacao Mama practitioner guidebook written by Serap Kara. This training concludes with a certificate of completion and a blessing from Cacao Mama.

"Her teachings come from the heart and she is clearly passionate by what she does. Her love for cacao is palpable and she gives so much. I felt and feel blessed to have met a teacher who l resonate so much with. I left the training feeling inspired, empowered and glad to have met many spirited women also. Her cacao is also the best I have so far found on the market...both for personal use and ceremonial settings. I can't wait to share the Balinese one in my next circle!"

Your workshop is deep and very far from all the commercial facade."

I learnt so much about all of the aspects of Cacao and how to work with it in my personal practice and sharing it with others. I'm so grateful that I was able to partake in this course and share space with a room full of incredible women. I've learnt so much and have come away feeling really centred and clear in how I want to move forward with my everyday life. I've only drank cacao once since returning home and it was so beautiful to feel confident in using this medicine ceremonially."
