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, an essence for the soul. The Cacao Spirit is respected as a feminine force, a rainbow medicine that allows you to feel connected between Earth and Cosmos. In the past years the Cacao Spirit has become a global being assisting in the awakening. Mama Cacao speaks to our heart and root so we can connect lovingly with ourselves, others and the world around us.
IMBOLC MOON CIRCLE
Beginning of February, we celebrate the cross-quarter holy day of Imbolc as the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. In Celtic mythology, it is the goddess Brigid with her white robe who comes to spread the first light and warmth into the silent darkness that still covers the land. Together we will cleanse the inner space and review the seeds we intend to plant inside the garden of the mind. Join us in circle and sacred mandala to prepare the ground for the warming energies of the element fire.
Medicine from Europe
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.
The Celtic Wheel
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.

About Serap Kara
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.
Imbolc is a traditional Celtic-Irish seasonal celebration. The portal of Imbolc (meaning 'in the belly') opens with the new moon on January 21, 2023 and remains open until Solar Imbolc February 04, 2023 with the Sun at 15 degrees Aquarius. Connect with the energy of Imbolc and invite the energy of the warming and transforming fire into your life.
