Cacao ceremonies has been performed for 1000’s of years by the indigenous tribes of Central America and Cacao was considered to be the ‘Food of the Gods’, an association that gave rise to the scientific name of the cocoa tree, Theobroma cacao, from the Greek words Theo (God) and broma (drink). It was also so valuable to be used as currency. According to both archeologists and Mayan spiritual elders, the Cacao Spirit was one of the most powerful deities in ancient Mayan cosmology. While the ancient Mayans and Aztecs of Southern Mexico and Guatemala are best known, there are contemporary Indigenous cultures in Central and South America who continue cacao use in Shamanic Ceremony, preferring it to locally available psychedelics. An Indigenous myth from these areas tells us that whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony. Sacred Cacao was ignored in the ‘60’s resurgence of medicine-plants because it does not act like a psychedelic – it does not take you on its trip, but facilitates your own. Cacao is now considered as a superfood and there are contemporary Indigenous peoples who use cacao to facilitate a type of collective Lucid Dream where all journey together in another dimension.
During the ceremony we drink raw organic cacao paste, we share of what we want to let go and what we are calling in, we create an intention, we hold space and we explore and expand through sound, movement, breath and tantric meditation. This gently opens your heart and brings new opportunities for personal and relationship growth. You will also activate your higher chakras and glands and have insights on how to direct your Life Force Sexual Energy upward and inward. These altered states of consciousness will open you to the potential of your sexual life force energy as a spiritual platform for accessing extraordinary states of reality and Bliss.
What is Raw Cacao?
Cacao is the raw, unprocessed chocolate Superfood on everyone’s lips. It is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans from a medicine magical plant, which preserves the beans nutritional content. It is gentle but potent in creating an uplifting state of being. Cacao is the most pharmacologically complex food in nature. It is rich in antioxidants and contains over 300 nutrients including magnesium, large amounts of iron, omega-6, vitamin C, chromium, trace elements, sulphur, zinc & copper to name just a few. Commercial processed chocolate developed during the last 200 years is made with roasted cocoa, sugar, milk, and other ingredients that eliminates these compounds from real cacao by 99% to 80%. Studies have found that by adding dairy this actually blocks the absorption of antioxidants in chocolate. While processed chocolate may taste delicious, the benefits of cacao are only found in the raw form. Raw cacao contains nearly four times the antioxidant content of regular processed dark chocolate, 20 times more than blueberries, and 119 times more than bananas.

This is a very safe and intimate space and the people that attend always surprise themselves at how they are able to open up to others, especially when they start to realise we are all a mirror for each other, with similar fears, sufferings, hopes and dreams. During the Ceremony the cacao activates within the body and the heart, allowing a truly transformative and ecstatic process to unfold.
The context of the ceremony supports meditation and creates a rare opportunity to explore and sit with the stories of the heart and to identify areas that are causing you restriction, limitation and pain. You have the chance to relax deeply and receive insights, inspiration and creative ideas that can give you a clarity on the “next steps” of your life and where you can support your overall health.
Many people report a deep sense of Joy and Peace, a connection to something bigger than themselves as well as insights of limiting behaviours, thoughts and feelings that are able to be understood and released within the safe environment of the ceremony.
Some also find that as their focus holding ability improves, their overall success in life increases and a greater sense of contentment and satisfaction follows.

Simona works with Organic Raw Cacao Paste (not Powder).
Check out what some of Simona’s regular participants have to say about it…
It was such a gift to be in “Sacred Cacao Ceremony” with Simona. I am so used to being a facilitator that sometimes I forget how powerful it is for the person receiving. Simona I felt had a very rare energy when it came to holding ceremony. The best way I can describe it is a Grandmother type energy. Warm, wholesome, unconditionally loving, grounded, earthy, centred and joyful. With nothing to prove and everything to give. I am very sensitive and acutely aware of a person’s relationship with their body. When we hugged I could feel the openness, aliveness and love pouring through Simona’s body which allowed mine to melt, relax and be open to receive. This may seem like a simple thing but it is an immensely powerful thing to radiate that quality of energy with your body and being, especially when holding such intimate ceremonies. I am so grateful that my first cacao ceremony was with Simona and would highly recommend anyone who hasn’t tried it, to experience it with Simona.
