A journey into self and sound with a Cacao circle ritual.

Let us discover what the soul has to say through our body's own improvisations.
Welcome to Woke Wisdom Community's first Cacao Ecstatic Dance of the year. Ecstatic Dance is a free form dance that invites us to release our embodied selves into ecstasy- taking us into realms beyond ego states. It is a conscious event which is not based on drugs and alcohol. Rather connection and personal expression through movement. Our track list will take you on a journey into self along with the powerful consecration, meditation and breathwork ritual that accompanies drinking sacred cacao.

What is Cacao?
Cacao is an aphrodisiac, mood enhancer, an antioxidant that protects the heart and is densely packed with nutrients, cacao is a nutritional powerhouse, proven to be the most pharmacologically complex food in nature. It can improve your memory, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and create loads of energy.
Cacao contains the neurotransmitters serotonin, tryptophan, and dopamine - the chemicals responsible for feelings of well-being, as well as anandamide, known as the bliss molecule that leaves us feeling blissful and euphoric, moderating pain perception, as well as assisting in regulating appetite and mood.
When high-quality raw cacao beans are prepared for the ceremony, all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao become particularly active. It increases blood flow and nutrition to the brain, heart, and skin, and the whole body is nourished. People report heightened awareness, focus, and intensified sensations.

Chocolate Shaman, Keith Wilson, whose cacao I use, lives in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala and has been working with cacao for over 12 years. He uses cacao for spiritual and shamanic purposes and processes his own cacao under instruction from the “cacao spirit.” Keith refers to cacao as the “food for the shift”.

Claire and Saxon will be guiding the cacao ceremony and being heartful space holders for us to explore the magic of this sacred medicine. As well as our personal intentions, we will set a collective intention of bringing greater balance and harmony to the world by anchoring more love and light into our bodies by allowing ourselves to dip into our shadow to heal. The balance between light and dark is very important, and LxCacao helps us to do this work with ease.
