For the Love and Connection that Pure Chocolate Brings

Raising Vibration to Unify Nature, Heart and Soul
An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rain-forest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to harmony. The gentle energy within the manifested form of cacao has been called “The Food for the Shift.” This shift is from fear to trust. Through its many effects such as both energising and releasing endorphins simultaneously, we are awake, alive and open-hearted.

Join Meta as she brings her wealth of knowledge to us through this sacred ceremony using special ceremonial cacao that Keith The Chocolate Shaman has sourced through intuition from the Pacific slopes of Guatemala. Meta was very fortunate to live in San Marcos la Laguna, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala for two months, to attend numerous ceremonies on Keith’s “porch” overlooking the lake, and be part of the team who helped pack the cacao for worldwide distribution.

During this event we embrace the path of Martin Prechtel, Mayan Shaman of Santiago Atitlan. In his book ‘Secrets of the Talking Jaguar’ he presents a culture that unifies nature, heart and soul. We will practice some of his experiences in our own way, in our own country, in the Perth Hills at The Sound Temple supported by the surrounding Jarrah Forest.

During the afternoon we will explore:

  • The Ornate Beauty of Speech
  • Being in a Place Well
  • Calling with Our Hearts
  • Creating Our Own Prayer/Rhythm/Movement in The Waking Dream of Cacao
  • Opening an Inquiry and Creating its Answer Together
  • Long Hugs are Complimentary on Departure
