Drinking Ceremonial grade Cacao is the Heart Opening Experience. An Indigenous Mayan myth tells us that whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes out from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony. Now is the time. Cacao is a facilitator and will invite you rather than push you on a spiritual journey. Only you choose. It is a deep spiritual experience and we invite you to join us on this blissful journey. Ceremonial cacao is the Food for the Shift.
Every human being has a heart beating like a drum. The pulse of life comes from each heart beat. When our rhythms are in sync, we feel better about ourselves. When our rhythms align to positive energy, we are uplifted. When our rhythms are given expression, our creativity awakens. By setting the intention, creating the space, issuing the invitation, and welcoming everyone to PLAY DRUMS, an energy is unleashed. Suddenly individuals feel part of something bigger and are empowered to express themselves – tapping in to their own rhythm and tuning in to the harmony of the group.
