What Is A Cacao Ceremony?
At its purest essence, a cacao ceremony can be any type of ceremony in which a ceremonial cacao beverage is consumed to elevate the spiritual activity being practiced. This often includes deep meditations or healing work.
The cacao used in these ceremonies is chocolate in its purest form. Cacao beans (seeds) come from the fruit of the cacao tree and have a distinctly bitter flavor. They're also chock-full of nutrients, making cacao a super food that has been used in ceremonies dating back to the Mayans and Aztecs. Today, the bitter bean has made its way from Latin America to many corners of the world for casual sipping and ceremonies alike.
Chef Jordan's Relationship with the Cacao Tree
As a dedicated Plant-Based Holistic Chef, I deeply respect the Cacao tree and the beautiful fruit it produces. I fell in love with Ceremonial Cacao about a year ago when I had my first ethically produced high quality Cacao drink. I resonated with the heart-opening energy it gave me, along with the focus and mental clarity. I quickly replaced coffee and tea with Ceremonial Cacao as my morning energizing beverage. As my love and appreciation for Cacao deepened I began cooking and baking with Cacao more frequently.
A few months ago an opportunity arose to become a Cacao Practitioner, with a wonderful company called Keith’s Cacao. As a developing Cacao Practitioner, I immersed myself in learning everything I could about Cacao, and how to hold proper Cacao ceremonies. My deep reverence for Cacao has led me on the journey of now holding my own Cacao ceremonies and workshops in the community. Here in San Diego, CA, I have had the opportunity to lead Cacao ceremonies for community meditation events, men’s warrior retreats, cooking classes, and personal workshops.
