About the workshop

Cacao is the medicine of the heart, and it is an extraordinary plant medicine that facilitates meditation journeys, helping to plant the seeds of change, for connecting with our hearts, for releasing blockages, and creating the opportunity to contact with positive emotions and the Great Spirit. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a traditional medicinal cacao circle as you are introduced to the history and legends of Mesoamerican cultures through the embodiment of their sacred myths around Cacao and Corn which are the seeds of origin for the original Mesoamerican people. The day will include stroytelling, building a Community Mayan altar, cacao preparation, and embodied shamanic journeying with the plant medicine of the heart. In participating in this circle you will gain an insight into understanding how this plant spirit has the potential to alleviate many ailments, why cacao is used in ceremonies and how it is a powerful healer. Who is the day retreat for? For those already working with cacao, for people who would like to have cacao in their lives as medicine, or for those wishing to experience a truly authentic cacao ceremony for the first time. Cacao is and has been for thousands of years a spiritual tradition, apart of being an incredible super food, its medicinal powers comes from its ritualistic origins, which comes from the original people of Mesoamerica. Marcela follows the tradition from the Cacao Guardians of the Yokot'an Mayas in the state of Tabasco Mexico. She is in an active process of tracing back and reclaiming her Yaqui Indigenous roots, she is in commitment with the Great Spirit to spread and translate the ancestral knowledge into these times.
