Cacao Ceremony   ACCESSIBILITY

Cacao is one of the noblest sacred plants I´ve worked with, it is a fruit rich in antioxidants, an immune and cardiovascular booster; The ceremonial cacao is a numinous drink that matches perfectly with the resonance and vibrations of sound meditation, since the former is a natural heart opener and a powerful medicine for the soul used in American ancient rituals.

This is self care at its finest and most nourishing. A plant medicine is a perfect way to leave the noise behind and sink into the rich landscape of the Lake District. Its also a unique way It is perfect to commemorate any moment, individually, with family or friends; a gently warm way to create a good work environment for corporate team building. Is the perfect time-space to renew ourselves and receive more of everything we deserve by nature.

“rejuvenated and inspired”

The cacao ceremony was extraordinary. Not what I expected at all. The intensity of the cacao along with the sounds of nature, the deep meditation and following Katherine’s soothing voice sent me into a deep relaxation. We chose some cards which turned out to be astonishingly pertinent blessings. I left feeling rejuvenated and inspired.

“I loved the cacao ceremony”

I loved the cacao ceremony. We did yoga after ours and I felt a real fire in my belly with the cacao. Doing yoga by the river was gorgeous. I was deeply relaxed during the meditation. We did this right at the beginning of our holiday and it set me up for the rest of the stay. I was completely lost in the beautiful surroundings.

“floating on a cloud!”

We chose a cold water swim, followed by a warming cacao ceremony and ecstatic yoga dance and then a massage. I walked back to my cabin floating on a cloud! Thank you Katherine and Ben.

We can design your ceremony around any specific ritual you might require such as coming to terms with grief, a celebration or even letting go of a toxic relationship.

Your session includes the ancestral drink made of ceremonial cacao; a purifying contemporary ritual by running water, rhythm, meditation and blessings with Katherine who will guide a truly unique journey that will expand and align your energy, comforting your spirit.

Accessibility for Massage

We can make our cacao events safe and accessible for all.  Please just call us to personalize your package to your specific needs.  Ceremonial time immersed in nature is amazing therapy for neurodiversity, anxiety and  depression. It's a great way to feel emotionally cleansed and grounded, to reconnect with others and nature and set some positive intentions.

Cacao is also fantastic for people with ADHD as it stimulates and wakes up the cognitive organiser in the brain and makes thoughts and expression calm and lucid.
