CACAO MAMA MEDICINE WOMAN
In 2015 I, Serap received Cacao's Spiritkeeper as an energetic form and geometry within my own being. In the initiation I traveled the vertical axis deep into the Earth and was able to connect with the life-giving force of the Elders. Then I was guided to the cosmic realms to ask which path the Cacao Collective wants me to follow. Many years I integrated before offering the Spiritkeeper initiation for the very first time. I am delighted to offer this course for the third time and invite you to feel Cacao's original medicine beyond the time-space-axis.
Our three-month study consists of three parts: preparing the body, opening to the vision and receiving the spiritkeeper initiation We will work with a moon calendar to establish a daily practice, guide a medicine walk and a shared plant discipline to prepare body, soul and spirit. This course comes with audio material, live online ceremonies and an invitation to share in our sacred space, providing an energetic bridge to come into alignment with the teachings of the Cacao Spirit. This training concludes with a certificate and a blessing from Cacao Mama.
ABOUT SERAP KARA
The Cacao Mama Initiation is led by Serap Kara. Serap's teaching has been rooted in dedicated service to Cacao for 12 years, 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 with the Spirit of Cacao. Feel, through the heart of the Spirit, the heartbeat of the Earth, the Forest, and the Cosmos.
We cannot think the Spiritkeeper, instead, we will feel our way by opening to a daily spiritual practice and strengthening earth intuition. Align in sisterhood to feel your unique medicine in this transformative now and be guided by the seasonal wisdom of the ancient European medicine wheel to awaken creative power within.
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 new moon in 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 peak into summer and to bringing the vision into manifestation.
YOUR COMMITMENT & DEDICATED TIME
Please allow a ritual me time for this course every day, even if it's only a few minutes. Additionally set aside time for 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 requested. We will invite you to share experiences in the classroom and express your perspective. 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.
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 intended for exploration, initiation and feeling into Cacao's original medicine.
The Cacao Mama initiation begins with Imbolc on February 1st and ends on May 5th with Lunar Beltane. On May 5, 2023 we will issue the certificates.

MEET SERAP KARA
Hello, my name is Serap and I welcome you! I'm a Medicine Woman, moon dancer, 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.

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.

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!
