Cacao Ceremony

Full Power Cacao

Cacao Ceremony WOW Fest Full Power_edited.jpg

Full Power Cacao are back, hosting their sought-after Cacao Ceremonies over the weekend. A Cacao Ceremony is a sacred journey to the heart with the spirit of Cacao through meditation, healing, music, mantra and dance. Allowing you to remove all that is holding you back from being the magnificent person you truly are. Cacao was used by the indigenous healers of Mayan and Aztec communities to enhance their journeying and build bridges between the different aspects of Creation. There is genetic research that dates the use of Cacao back to 2000BC but there is a good chance it was used for thousands of years before this. The Mayans considered Cacao to be a gift from the Gods and it was also called the ‘Food of the Gods’.

Forest bathing is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. Research has proven that spending time around trees can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy and the immune system, and even help you to lose weight.
