Gaia’s Gift Ceremonial Cacao is a celebration of gratitude & reverence for Mumma Cacao. She has ignited the ancient fire deep within our wild souls & led us back to her sister Gaia, Mother Earth, here we have fallen at her feet in deep resonance & gratitude honouring every inch of her infinite beauty and bountiful gifts.
Cacao is one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods, containing more antioxidants than any other food on the plant, and has many amazing medicinal benefits. It's a high source of Magnesium, has more Calcium than cows milk and contains zinc, copper and selenium. It's a powerful source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, anandamide, dopamine and phenylethylamine.
Gaia’s Gift Ceremonial Cacao reflects the true cost of fair trade. We are working hard to help both the Ashaninka Tribe and Tsatsayaku Association protect their land. Here at Gaia’s Gift Cacao we are passionate about building awareness for the care of the beautiful rainforest and the ancient products that thrive there. By giving these co- operatives a fair price for their cacao, we enable them to be more economically independent, whilst maintaining and protecting the forest and wildlife they inhabit.
Using cacao in ceremony is a beautiful opportunity to take a shamanic journey to meet the spirit of Cacao. A time for stillness and inner peace, away from the outside world. On meeting with cacao’s spirit, she will help you to reconnect with your true self and your own inner knowing.
Gaia’s Gift Cacao is prepared in ritual ceremony on the New Moon, blessing & infusing her with the intention of pure love. Your Gaia’s Gift Cacao is then charged on a crystal grid which allows the Cacao to absorb powerful crystalline energy.
