  • What's the Deal with Cacao?

    Chocolate. One of the worlds most beloved plants in the world, cacao makes up most of what we call chocolate. Native to the Amazon basin, cacao was domesticated by a group of people near Mexico. It has been used ceremonially by many people in Central and South America for thousands of years. In 1753 a Swedish botanist by the name of Carl Linneas gave the plant the latin name Theobroma cacao, translated to “food of the gods”. The name chocolate comes from the Aztec word “xocolatl”, which was translated as “bitter water”.

    Especially through ceremonial engagement, many individuals have had fantastic spiritual experiences with cacao. The biggest thing cacao is said to spiritually is open the heart. Cacao ceremony’s have a reputation of being connective, playful, fun, and loving. These ceremonies can induce a transformational experience for many.
