Mayan Ceremonial Cacao
FACILITATOR TRAINING ONLINE
WHAT IS A CACAO CEREMONY?
Cacao was used in a ceremonial and therapeutic way in the Mayan world. It is a great resource to deepen the personal work that each one of us is willing to do. Cacao has a gentle and at the same time very deep way of working with emotions and consciousness, its expansive effects put us in contact with a feeling of openness in which we can see more clearly the issues we have to work on. Cacao opens the doors for us to get in touch with our personal wisdom and the Teacher that each one of us carries within, showing us the multiple possibilities we have to create, flow and share.
