Cacao Ceremony Class
Instructor: Avi Karp
Who doesn’t love chocolate!
Do you know the health benefits of raw organic cacao? It has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries, the highest plant-based source of iron and magnesium (the most deficient mineral in the western world), more calcium than cows milk and a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant.
This special evening honors the cacao bean. Ceremonial grade cacao is made into a warm hot chocolate drink releasing one of the main active ingredients Theobromine. Theo-broma literally translates as God-Food, and potentiates the release of dopamine, the ‘pleasure’ hormone. This, alongside phenethylamine, known to help relieve stress and depression is released in the body, creating heightened sensation and empathy. The evening incorporates the soothing sounds of singing bowls & rain sticks for some deep meditation and feeling the unified field of LOVE.
Cacao ( bitter chocolate) is known to be a gentle heart-opener, invoking the energies of forgiveness to allow for deeper and more authentic and loving connections. Chocolate has been proven to be the one "food" that helps bring both hemispheres of the brain into harmony.The Indigenous peoples of the Americas, such as the Mayans and Aztecs, hold the seed,fruit, and plant as Sacred and as spiritual medicine.
A unique way to to connect to self love - join us for an evening of guided meditation through the use of singing bowls, rain sticks and drums after having drunk a warm cup of ceremonial grade cacao. Feel the peace!
