The Invitation

We are delighted to invite you to our ceremonial gathering to meet fellow Cacao Gardeners and immerse into the spirited Cacao Gardener forest in Colombia. We dedicate this conversation and presentation to sacred reciprocity and the practice of pagamento. 

Our speakers will guide you into the magical Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, offer stories from the land and share about the practice of pagamento. We feel blessed that Mama Miguel from the Kogui tribe will share a message and blessing for the Cacao Gardeners.

Join us on December 20th, 2023, the date of the Solstice, when nature opens a portal for human evolution. You are welcome to prepare a cup of ceremonial Cacao so we can bring our hearts and breaths in one rhythm for us to meet in "The Heart of the World."
