Benefits of Cacao:

Theobroma cacao is a sacred plant used for spiritual, medicinal, and ceremonial purposes in indigenous cultures of South America. Its molecule has unique components such as

  • PEA (phenylethylamine) creates a euphoric feeling of pleasure and joy.
  • Serotonin is responsible for happiness in general.
  • Oxytocin creates a deep bond with yourself, your body and all that surrounds you.
  • Magnesium relaxes muscles and increases blood circulation to open up your heart.
  • Theobromine stimulates your senses and sharpens your focus.

"I have used this amazing plant medicine for myself for a few years, but I had never facilitated a cacao ceremony for other people. This training has everything I needed to understand well the origins of cacao, how to appreciate the cultures that first started using cacao, how to prepare cacao for my clients and how to use some shamanic tools, and how to run my own events. I love how InnerCamp empowered me to create my own style, not copying anyone and trends. I'm running a bi-weekly cacao ceremony in Mexico and my clients have so good feedback! So grateful to InnerCamp!"

"I took the Cacao Ceremony Facilitator Course and really enjoyed learning so much! It is a course with much information and knowledge without repeating the same things. Every video brings new knowledge and it's really lovely to get so much different information so you can set up a ceremony with a good base and totally in your own way with the background and history of cacao. Thank you so much for facilitating this course"
