My First Cocoa Ceremony: A Journey to Inner Peace

It was Anouk who told me about cocoa ceremonies she had done. This caught my attention and I started researching this further to see what it would do for me. But honestly, I didn't know exactly what to expect. It sounded intriguing, a ritual dedicated to pure cocoa, but also a bit mysterious. Anouk invited me to join her and my colleagues Lester and Maurice for a ceremony at Rahel from the Soul Cafe.

 

The preparation

Before the ceremony, I was given a few instructions: eat lightly throughout the day, drink plenty of water, and come with an open heart. The ceremony would take place at Rahel's home , who has a beautiful space at home, decorated with soft pillows, candles and incense. The space immediately felt warm and inviting. We gathered in a circle and Rahel , an experienced ceremony leader, began with a brief introduction to the history and significance of cacao in spiritual practices.

 

The Beginning of the Ceremony

We started with an introduction round and the question why you are here. Everyone has their own reasons for participating in a cacao ceremony. It creates a bond because everyone exposes themselves one evening to basically unknown people.

After this, Rahel prepared the cocoa that we were going to drink.

 

Drinking the Cocoa

When the cups of cocoa were handed out, I held mine in my hands and smelled the cocoa. The taste was intense and intense and hit my stomach hard.

 

The Journey Within

As the cocoa took effect, I felt a gentle warmth spread through my body. My heartbeat seemed to be in sync with the music playing in the background. Rahel guided us through a series of breathing exercises and visualizations designed to connect us more deeply with ourselves.

I felt emotions arise that I didn't know were there: joy, sadness, gratitude, and a deep sense of connection. The cocoa seemed to open my heart and allow me to look within without judgment. I felt a deep connection with the others in the room, even though I didn't know most of them.

 

The ending

After what felt like an eternity but was probably an hour, Rahel began to close the session. We talked about our experiences in the group and I was amazed at the power of the stories shared. Everyone seemed to be touched in a way that words could hardly describe.

As I sat in the car home, I felt light and energetic, but also deeply moved. It was as if the cocoa had lifted a veil and given me a glimpse of a deeper reality, one in which I was completely connected to myself and the world around me.

 

Reflection

My first cacao ceremony was a journey inward, a discovery of the healing power of nature and the deep wisdom that lies within all of us. It was an experience that I cherish and that inspired me to learn more about this beautiful ritual and the rich traditions associated with it.

This was my first step into the world of cacao ceremonies and I look forward to the many journeys to come. With the cocoa from Kakaw Spirit!
