"I loved cultivating a personal relationship with Cacao, and how this contributed to a more loving relationship with self. I especially enjoyed learning each week new ways to have a ceremony. From singing, to dancing, meditation, and the many ways to create sacred space and spaciousness. To cultivate a personal relationship with Cacao and allow her to facilitate your inner journey, intentions, prayers, healing or transformations.
One of my favorite practices is through embodiment, and Cacao and the many ways we are taught to practice our ceremonies furthers this expression - from dancing, singing, and meditation.
Cacao is such a beautiful plant ally to add to your life, and with this course you also dive deep into knowledge of Cacao, it’s history, benefits, and beautiful ways to practice your own ceremonies! There is also an aspect of richer and more loving relationship to your self that is cultivated in this practice. You are reminded of your own magic, the magic of the world around you, and the one-ness that is shared within you and all. Whatever your intentions are - from cultivating creativity, self expression, alignment with your dharma, healing, magic… Cacao and working with Christine can beautifully assist.
I was surprised by the profound healing that occurred for me during the final ceremony! This was so because Christine cultivated trust and shared vulnerability with us, which allowed me to open up. The climate of the world was/is such that we were all feeling a lot. Already dedicated on a healing journey, and then finally leaning into the stillness you can cultivate in meditation facilitated by cacao allowed me to feel, heal, and release another layer I had carried and pour in love.
I also loved the week dedicated to signing and voice activation, and felt myself break down barriers to using my voice in song!
This was such a beautiful, magical, and meaningful journey for me. I intend to circle back to the videos often in my practices with Cacao, and Cacao is a lifelong plant ally for me now. I am so grateful to Christine for sharing her wisdom, and to the indigenous peoples throughout time to today who have preserved these traditions and brought this medicine to us." – Taylor Wyman
