LIVE SESSIONS & DEDICATED TIME
Each 120-minute live session outlines the lesson, offers space for sharing, and concludes with an exercise to be creatively worked on and sent in by each participant before the start of the next lesson.
Please allow five hours minimum of dedicated time for this course each month. It is recommended that you participate in all the live teachings; yet the participation in the Cacao Mama Ceremony & Initiation is mandatory. The live sessions and ceremonies will be recorded and made available.
Between 13th March and 28th March we'll prepare the internal space for the Cacao Mama Initiation through a shared dieta. A dieta is a commitment to create a space within to commune with the healing properties of a teacher plant. While a shamanic dieta is quite strict, we follow a simplified dieta with recommendations regarding intake of food and information. The intention is to cleanse the body and energy system and create a space within to receive the stellar-earth medicine of Cacao. In this time of slowing down, we will open to and share Cacao's songs, messages and healing vibration.
THE GOLDEN CACAO CIRCLE
We believe that humans have the power and the responsibility to channel the highest spiritual essence, anchor it in this now and with it transform matter.
In the 'Golden Cacao Circle' we will discuss initiatives and resources to nurture the energy of Cacao. The intention is to create pathways for giving back (both physically and energetically) to come full circle within our offerings.
Cacao is facing enormous global challenges forming a complex development issue touching the social, economic & environmental level. Cacao teaches balance and reminds us to protect the life-force and be in service to greater harmony.
We have designed this four-month course for experienced practitioners to align closely with the Spiritkeeper of Cacao. We intend to address topics that arise when we practice the art of holding Cacao Ceremonies, and explore the potential of a global perspective and mission.
Apply for this this course if you have a deep bond with Cacao and have experience with serving Cacao in Ceremony and feel ready to align with and expand into Cacao's global mission and service to anchor a new consciousness.

CACAO MAMA · GOLDEN CACAO
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.
"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!"
— Sandrine Giacobino
"I'm very grateful to you Serap for being such a clear and detached messenger of this powerful medicine...for really be able to transmit the essence of things and allow the creativity of each and every one to express and find its own unique way. Your workshop is deep and very far from all the commercial facade."
— Chiara Pallotti
"The training felt totally comprehensive and it was held in such a wonderful container. 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."
— Tamara ‘Wolf Sister’ Driessen
"It has been a true privilege to enjoy Seraps openings into this sacred practice and her deep heartfelt connection to Cacao Spirit - an adventurous, delightful and truly beautiful experience."
— Kristine Øjken
