The Cacao Mama Medicine Woman training is an initiation and advanced journey into the vibration of Cacao's original medicine. The intelligence that is calling in the keepers, dreamers, and weavers to come into connection with the ancient wisdom of the Cacao Collective. The Cacao Mama Initiation is an offering for sisters who have a bond with Cacao, practice the art of holding ceremonies, weave Cacao's medicine with integrity and wish to align with the Spiritkeeper of the Cacao Collective to receive their ancestral wisdom on healing and sources of visionary power.


Our three-month study consists of three parts: opening to the vision, the spiritkeeper initiation, and the phase of manifestation and making visible.  Our study is accompanied by a gratitude calendar to establish a daily practice, audio material, and live online ceremonies, providing an energetic bridge to come into alignment with the ancient teachings of the Cacao Spirit. Commit to being in service to meet the Spiritkeeper that sustains life energy at its core. This training concludes with a certificate of completion and a blessing from Cacao Mama.


The Cacao Mama Initiation is led by Serap Kara. Serap's teaching has been rooted in dedicated service to Cacao for over 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 be in Ceremony, connect with Spirit, 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 and speak up for the preciousness of life.

At the heart of the Cacao Mama Medicine Woman training is the Spiritkeeper of Cacao. The Spiritkeeper is a very sacred form and geometry, a vibration and a space. You can visualise this form with your inner eye and sense its geometry with your entire being. Its loving essence speaks directly to the heart, the roots, and centres of power.

The Spiritkeeper holds the original medicine of the Cacao Collective and allows you to connect with and learn directly from the wisdom keepers. With the Spiritkeeper as your center, you can experience a deeper connection to the Spirit of Cacao and thus to the heartbeat of the Earth, the Forest, and the Cosmos. 

We cannot think the Spiritkeeper, instead, we will feel our way by strengthening intuition and open to a daily spiritual practice. We will experience rituals that will prepare us for initiation. We will offer a medicine walk,  invite you to share in our sacred space, and together dive into intuitive contemplation and calibration.

Imbolc - OpenING to the Vision

Imbolc marks the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. The portal of Imbolc (meaning 'in the belly') opens with the Sun at 15 degrees Aquarius, holding the spark of vision. We will use the energy to tune into sources of visionary power.

Equinox - Spiritkeeper Initiation

The Spring Equinox is a sun-based event that falls around March 21st every year. The word Equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night”-aequus (equal) and nox (night). At the Equinox we will open to receive the medicine of the Spiritkeeper.

Beltane - Making visible & MANIFESTATION

Beltane is one of the most important festivals of the Celtic wheel of the year and is primarily dedicated to fertility, the growth and free unfolding of nature, and the pure joy for life. Here we will bring the vision into visible manifestation.

Please allow five minutes of dedicated time for this course every day and present time to practice the rituals and the medicine walk.  It is recommended that you participate in all the live sessions, however, they will be recorded and made available in case you miss one. 

With your participation, you are taking a seat within our medicine woman council guided by Elders. This is where your voice and perspectives are valued. We will invite you to share experiences in the classroom and express your voice. If you have the idea that you can participate from the background and stay out of the shared exploration altogether, this course is probably not for you.

The Cacao Mama Medicine Woman is an invitation to clear the channels and strengthen your spiritual connection with the Spirit of Cacao so that you feel empowered to co-create a new reality. Align in sisterhood to feel your unique medicine in this transformative now and be guided by the seasonal rhythm of the ancient European medicine wheel.

The Cacao Mama Initiation opens with the lunar new year on February 1st and completes on lunar Beltane on April 30th. Next to the moon phases, we follow the seasonal celebrations of the European medicine wheel with its lunar and solar celebrations. The seven live ceremonies are reserved for exploration, energetic activation, and initiation and feeling into Cacao's original medicine.

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 am in service to Pachamama and the Cacao Spirit, and have helped to open the consciousness for the Cacao across the borders of Europe. I've shared the space with people from all around 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 Pachamama and the heart of the forest. 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.

A personal note from Serap. 


Thank you for your patience dear medicine sister. It took me some time to open this course as I am moving countries. Now, I feel that I am in the right place surrounded by Mama Ocean and the wild south-west coast of Portugal and am happy to share this vibration with you in the medicine woman training. Since  the past two years have been a tech-intense time for most of us, I took some extra time to think about the format of this course and ways to present the information. Feel very welcome to the Cacao Mama Medicine Woman Training 2022. I am looking forward walking this path together with you. 


I have no experienceS with THE Cacao SPIRIT. Can I participate Anyway?

In the Medicine Woman Training will not discuss the technicalities of ceremonial Cacao and it is recommended that you have experience with working with ceremonial Cacao already or have experiences in healing work. The intention of this course is to empty the mind, enter a flow and open to connect with Cacao's Spiritkeeper through the heart. We recommend that you take the Ceremony Training if you wish to learn the art of serving Ceremonial Cacao. 



You will have access to the classroom and the materials until the first full moon on January 7, 2023.


Each registration is for one person to be part of the course. If others would like to participate, please encourage them to register separately. We ask that you do not to share the materials (workbook, audio files, meditations) with other people.



Yes, this course comes with a certificate which will be issued upon successfully completing the practical tasks. 



My journey with cacao started many years ago but took a deeper dive when I studied with Serap a few years back in Berlin. Since then I have been on a retreat with you and have recently completed the Cacao Mama Medicine Woman Training. I feel blessed to have been part of this training and can only recommend it to any sister out there who is looking to find her voice, to feel empowered by the support of a great teacher and a group of wonderful women. Serap has the capacity for holding the space safely and kindly. Layers are dissolving and new grounds are being discovered. The process is still taking place and I feel this new energy making its way through me and my life. An initiation happened,  witnessed and experienced by many sisters on the same path, one of empowerment, healing, love and self love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart"

You guided us through these times of big change on a global scale into deep transformational work and created a magic circle, a magic bond, between us, sisters. I could look at important parts of myself, that were not healed yet, and heal them: in the loving arms of Mama Cacao. Throughout this training also my website was born: www.the-freedom-tribe.com A space for of healers, energy workers and therapists to co-create offerings together for a conscious awakening in connectedness.  This creation would not have been possible without The Cacao Medicine Woman training.  My words are more kind now, my thoughts don‘t own me anymore, and my huge Love and highest excitement don’t scare me anymore. I can be in service now in a new quality and higher frequency. Golden Mama Cacao is now visible to me every day, whenever I step into my unconditional Love. I see and feel her inside of me when I teach and hold space. She holds me. In deep gratefulness I can tell you that this precious training held me during the lockdowns and in my healing and creative process.

Thank you deeply from my heart and soul to your sister and medicine woman. I am so grateful to have listened to my intuition that almost without information showed me the way to you. Synchronistically. Magically. When technology does this I call it "sacred technology". Thank you for leading our paths to cross each other. Serap, you hold the most wonderful sacred deep loving alchemical space. Your communion with the Spirit Keeper of Cacao in all of its forms has transformed me through your and Its transmission. The circle of women you called magnetically to sit in the ceremony added to the magic and wonder of this journey. Many magics happened during the time we journeyed together, too many to share in written form in an email. I can summarise them by saying how each one of us in the circle held a different tune that when joined in ceremony became an empowering harmony. My wish for you is to keep shining your light so brightly that together we can co-create a new reality for our Pachamama.


— Valerie Shakti Bottazzi, Italy



The medicine woman training was life changing for me. I received so many deep insights from the Cacao spirit and the Spiritkeeper, a whole new inner world opened up for me. Over the whole time of the course I felt so safely held from our amazing group of women and from the loving guidance of Serap. I loved how she empowered every woman to trust in her own wisdom and to weave her unique medicine into the circle. The structure of the course was absolutely right for me, there was enough time to process the lectures and insights and to integrate everything into my daily life. Serap's teaching is deeply connected to her shamanic experience, full of wisdom, joy and devotion for the Cacao Spirit. I feel honoured and full of gratitude having been part of this amazing journey!
