Full Moon Cacao Ceremony

Hello and welcome to the Joyful Minds Full Moon Cacao Ceremony, you are very welcome here. Open to all who wish to join, this is a night of deep relaxation, connection and grounding.

“Cacao is a tool to open your heart" Keith Wilson

For me it’s all about living your true nature and purpose intuitively and authentically and I’m creating different spaces for people to do that.  A Full Moon Cacao Ceremony is open to all who choose to join and is a night like no other.

What is a Cacao Ceremony?

Cacao is raw chocolate that we drink.  It is considered the ‘food of the gods’ and has been used for thousands of years in rituals.  It is a an entheogen (also known as a plant medicine), a class of psychoactive (not psychedelic) substances that are found in plants that release naturally produced chemicals in the body that can invoke a change in mood and focus.  Entheos translates to “full of the god, inspired” and gen means “to come into being”.

Every cacao ceremony is different and in the Joyful Minds Full Moon Cacao Ceremony we gather around the values of connection, presence and community.  

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to get you to be something else is the greatest accomplishment” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What to expect

  • Drawing on the wisdom of nature
  • A ‘journey’ to the shamanic drum (which may be guided or open with the setting of intentions)
  • Experiential self inquiry
  • Sharing (if you are comfortable to)
  • Ritual
  • Tools to strengthen your inner guidance
  • A Loving and welcoming atmosphere

This is for you if you’re looking to:

  • Learn to listen to your inner guidance
  • Create a space for yourself to re-centre and reconnect 
  • Strengthen your intuition
  • Find a non-judgemental space where you can be yourself 
  • Be resourceful, creative and whole 
  • Create space for healing and growth
  • Be fully seen, heard, and supported
  • Join a community of like-hearted people

Full Moon represents a time for shedding, surrendering and releasing, and for re-balancing and grounding.   

"Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't really you, so you can become who you were meant to be in the first place." Paul Coelho

What will I gain from attending

Many people say that Cacao can create a profound and deep experience. This was true for me too! I would summarise the benefits as:

Connection – ceremony provides an opportunity to connect with ourselves. A lovely warm and inviting space to shut out the outside world, close the laptop, turn off the phone, and be fully present with ourselves. As a result you will leave feeling more connected, centred and resourced. 

Intuition is a muscle we need to exercise regularly for it to get stronger, and that can be really difficult whilst juggling all the other demands on ourselves. Living intuitively means connecting with our true nature, in a unedited, unfiltered, uninhibited way and allow that intuition to guide us.

Community – sharing experiences like this often creates that lovely feeling when we connect with others at a deeper level and are truly seen and heard. We realise that we’re not alone and we are welcomed into ceremony as resourceful, creative and whole.

Creativity – Cacao is an incredible tool, as is the shamanic drum, for raising our vibration, for bringing forth our wild creative side and for connecting us to the natural world around us.
