In this sacred ceremony we will drink the plant medicine known normally as chocolate and dance our hearts out! Cacao has been used as a sacred medicine for thousands of years. Known as the food of the gods, cacao will provide a heart opening experience that will get you deeply in touch with your body and enliven your senses. Drinking a very special Mayan Cacao from Guatemala blended mindfully with a witchy blend of herbs and spices. The chocolate drink will be divine nectar for you to savor and enjoy. With the ceremonial space invoked and the cacao spirit with us: We dance!

Levi and Pavitra will guide you in an ecstatic dance journey through the 5 elements. You will shape - shift your body, moving in new ways, seeing new parts of yourself and remembering parts forgotten. During the dance there will only be body language and no exact words shared, only the guidance of the facilitators and your free form movements and primal expression. You will go deep into the dance and lose the distractions of your mind. Playfully releasing any stuck energy and embracing your natural essence. We are made of the elements, so through the dance: We embody the elements!

Once we have moved through the entire journey, we will come back together in a circle to close the ceremonial container. We will share in community and togetherness. Leaving you with a sense of beauty and fulfilment in your heart.

Though cacao is not an aggressive plant medicine and our blend quite delicious, it’s still not required for you to drink the chocolate at all. You can come just to dance and experience the ceremony!

Please come with an open mind and prepare to open your heart!

Cacao Ceremony 
The food of the gods. Theobroma cacao. A historically - revered plant food, now much overlooked and misunderstood.

Or, in more familiar terms, chocolate. Levi’s cacao ceremonies combine the profound sacredness of ceremony with the equally profound deliciousness of arguably the most magical food on the planet. What’s not to like?

Using ceremonial - grade cacao imported especially from the highlands of Guatemala, which makes even most raw chocolate taste ordinary, you’ll experience the unique heart explosions that only cacao can bring and channel the wisdom of cacao spirit for deep, transformative realization.

Every cacao ceremony is a collaboration between the co-participants, facilitated and woven together by Levi. Each one unfolds differently, although you can expect some or all of the following: y oga, meditation, singing, dancing, processing, laughing, crying, hugging, and – undoubtedly - loving.
