New Moon Cacao Ceremony

New Moon Cacao Ceremony Join Nick Meador and Katerina Kan in a fifth journey combining ceremonial cacao and group energy healing.

We will begin with a cacao drinking ritual facilitated by Nick. Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection. Nick has traveled through Central America developing relationships with family farms in order to serve cacao in the most ethical and responsible way.

Cacao’s spiritual and emotional benefits include:
• Heightened focus and motivation without crash or cravings
• Gentle mood boost from anandamide, aka the Bliss Molecule
• Heart chakra opening for self-love, compassion, and forgiveness
• Aphrodisiac effects
• Greater connection with your body and spirit
Cacao’s nutritional profile contains:
• A high amount of antioxidants
• Iron, providing increased blood oxygenation
• Magnesium, providing relief of muscle tension
• All the healthy cacao butter left in (unlike processed cacao powder)

Following the cacao ritual, Katerina will conduct a group energy healing using the Theta Healing modality. This energy healing modality is a process of belief system reconstruction, based on the collective themes present in the group mind. Bringing conscious intent to the theta brainwave can facilitate actual transformation of our innermost thoughts and programs that run our mind - also known as our belief systems, or mindsets. Doing this meditation as a group is particularly illuminating, in the sense that we discover how much we have in common and how interconnected our stories, struggles and belief systems are.
Katerina will ask attendees to share briefly their intentions and challenges heading into the New Moon energy based on this month’s theme, and do belief system reconstruction work on the group mind to provide attendees with embodied affirmations that will help them dissolve challenges and advance toward their intentions.

A NOTE ABOUT CACAO
Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection. With his social enterprise Soul Lift Cacao, Nick serves cacao grown organically at a family farm in eastern Guatemala, prepared by a women's collective at Lake Atitlán that he met personally, and obtained through ethical direct trade WITH FULL PERMISSION AND CONSENT TO SHARE IT IN THIS WAY. When Soul Lift Cacao buys from the women's collective, 100% of profits from that sale go back to the Mayan indigenous people growing and preparing the cacao. By giving back and showing respect, we honor the sacred role that cacao has played for thousands of years in the indigenous cultures of what we now call Central and South America. We are so fortunate that ceremonial cacao is entering the global consciousness at a time when it can have a massively positive impact. It is a privilege to serve cacao made for ceremonial use outside of its indigenous context.

*Cacao consumption is optional at this event. It is not advised for people taking MAOI anti-depressants or people with a heart condition to have a full serving of pure cacao.

The Heartbeat Collective is committed to offering our community ongoing ways to further their paths of healing and self-discovery. This event aligns with this intention because Cacao has a way of opening you to a heightened experience of community and connection.
