"Spirit is calling me to remember my sacred connection and relationship with Mother Nature. I am invited to renew my bond with Spirit through ceremony and ritual, open to the ancient medicine of the circle and follow the lead into a deeper understanding of plant spirit, nature spirit and the spirit of my own being. I commit to be in sacred service to Pachamama and receive Cacao's ancestral wisdom and unifying consciousness to weave a new connected global culture."


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. - Serap Kara


The Ceremony training is an offering for souls who have experienced cacao in a ceremonial setting, have started to offer the Cacao medicine in a ceremonial way or wish to deepen the art of being in Ceremony with the Cacao Spirit for themselves. Join our four-months in-depth journey to gain a solid foundation and a deeper understanding on how Cacao weaves her medicine magic within a sacred group setting. Feel welcome to our sacred learning space of Cacao Lovers from around the globe. 


Cacao Mama's Ceremony Training is a guided online training into the loving, heart-centred consciousness of the Cacao Spirit. The Cacao Ceremony Training is composed of four chapters from The Art of Cacao guidebook written by Serap Kara for self-study, pre-recorded audio material, exercises and deepening practices and five live-ceremonies providing an energetic bridge to come into alignment with the ancient teachings of the Cacao Spirit. This training concludes with an exam and a certificate of completion.


The Cacao Ceremony training is led by Serap Kara. Serap's teaching has been rooted in dedicated service to Cacao for more than a decade, and she shares deep wisdom and a global perspective. Her approach is earth-rooted and stellar, warm, kind, and supportive. Serap creates finely-tuned spaces and offers avenues to connect with Spirit, be in Ceremony and trust our unique medicine ways and expand into a greater harmony so that we remember: we are always in ceremony and we are the centre of it.  



The participation in the Cacao Mama Ceremony training requires that you have experienced at least one Cacao Ceremony, are a Cacao Lover, you know how to prepare a ceremonial cacao for yourself, and you have created a first subtle connection with the Cacao Spirit. 


If you have never experienced ceremonial cacao before but feel called to join this training, and likely cannot even explain why - don't worry, we feel you. We have designed Cacao Mama Foundations as a basic introductory course to provide a solid foundation before starting this in-depth training. 


At Cacao Mama Foundations we look into the structure of a Cacao ritual or ceremony and explain in pre-recorded audio files along with pdf handouts the main elements of a ceremony such as intention setting and creating sacred space, what to do with your ceremonial cacao, once it arrives on your kitchen desk (use, preparation, storage, handling), insights into the origin and history of sacred Cacao and a guided meditation to connect with the Cacao Spirit.

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.

I'm in service to Pachamama and the Cacao Mother, and have 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 is 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.

"I had such a beautiful experience through this training. My heart and womb connected in ways i didn't know was possible. I had now idea a plant could open up so many realms inside of me. I really enjoyed listening and absorbing all of Seraps knowledge and wisdom on this scared plant. I really enjoyed all of the ceremonies i learnt something new about cacao and about myself at each one. I would recommend Seraps training to anyone who feels called to cacao and feels called back to themselves." — Amanda Walsh



"Thank you Cacao Mama for the healing wisdom of the Cacao medicine.The most beautiful insight given to me, is to understand that every moment of our lives is a ceremony.We only need to be mindfull and bring our awareness and intension into the moment. This is a beautiful way of living, caring and sharing from our heart to other hearts. Love and gratitude." — Pia Frandsen



"The space Serap holds is one of deep acceptance and transformation.The kindness of her heart held us all through a very powerful and deep exploration of our own medicine and our own connection to Cacao Spirit. I always felt a lot of freedom to find my own way of connecting to the plant Spirit and at the same time, I felt deeply guided step by step by her words, her energy, her wisdom. As I emerge from this space I feel a deeper connection and trust to my inner knowing. I now feel gently empowered to offer this medicine in alignment with my heart and with the natural and imaginal world. I keep in my heart the memories of our beautiful and supportive circle of women and the amazing meditation journeys we took together. If you are longing for a deeper connection with this wise plant Spirit I fully recommend journeying with Serap and Cacao Mama." — Camille Barrios



"When I started the training, I knew this would be an amazing journey - but I'd have never thought it could change my world view so profoundly. Diving deeply in the world of Cacao showed me more possibilities, more potential, more power than I've ever experienced. I feel like a gained a new friend: Mama Cacao. And I love that. The ceremonies we experienced together were my most favorite part. It was all together an adventure. I started to connect to nature on a much deeper level, going to the wood frequently, talking to the wood and plants and sensing even subtle energies. I would recommend this to ANYONE! Anyone, who feels the call for Cacao.." — Sophie Moriggi    

"I am grateful to your ceremonies. I am on the spiritual path and have beliefs in energies and trusting in the Universe.This is a new thing and my faith grows stronger month by month. Since starting this course I have lead three successful, working ceremonies so it has given me the confidence and experience to do so. Thank you for building my confidence working with cacao and teaching me how to hold space for the cacao spirit so i can facilitate space so people can benefit from the medicine. — Bella Sommerset



"Cacao Mama training brought me peace and clarity. Serap's teachings opened my heart to feel into the bigger picture and yet keep it rooted in the earth. Cacao Mama unearthed ancestral knots, connected me to ancestors and their wisdom. Tapping into ancestral energy brought healing into my family lineage and now I feel a clearing in my heart to really step forward to be of service in ways the women of my family were unable to do generations before me. As a whole the course was spectacular, you're really taken on a journey with Serap and the Cacao spirit, the modules are insightful and full of knowledge, the teachings encourage you to find your own voice and connection to Cacao and you're also encourage to tap into your own intuition too. A truly beautiful experience."  — Katie Ness



"The Cacao Mama Ceremony Training was a beautiful experience that I would not want to miss! It has deepened my understanding of the Spirit of Cacao and its cultural origins, it has given me valuable encouragements and tools to connect with Cacao and build a valuable relationship.The course has given me inspiration, wisdom, wonderful experiences in ceremony with myself, encouragement, sisterhood, knowledge, the experience of my power to spread love and it has been another step towards my dream of the new world!" — Carola Benn



"I found this training to be beautifully nourishing and expansive in so many ways. It was nurturing yet powerful. I have truly stepped into my creativity in my business - and also had the courage to step into the next phase of my healing journey. I loved being part of a community of those who were all called to deepen their connection to the Cacao Spirit. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to deepen their personal connection with Cacao and also bring it to others with integrity. I enjoyed it so much.Thank you." — Lauren Barber
