I love working with Ceremonial Cacao during my group breath sessions.
Besides that, I’m a big chocolate lover – guilty!
Cacao combines beautifully with breathwork. It’s a natural vasodilator – which allows for more flow of blood and oxygen through the body. It contains Anandamide – which makes you feel happy and positive.
The high amounts of antioxidants are very nourishing, as are the high levels of minerals.
For hundreds of years Pure raw cacao has been used for ceremonies and important decision making in Mayan culture. The Mayan’s also used cacao, because of its properties listed above for women during pregnancy & postpartum! Its a lovely substitute to coffee, while being activating it does not give the same rush.
I regularly start my PSYCHEDELIC BREATH® sessions with a Cacao Ceremony – to allow for some time to ground, connect to the breath and set an intention for the breath practice. Working with an intention has a very powerful effect.
