Solstice Cacao Ceremony Sarasota; Saturday June 22nd from 10:00am to 5:00pm

June 22nd 10am-5pm
Welcome to this plant medicine ceremony of Cacao and Community. Held within the portal of the Summer Solstice, we have the opportunity to bring more light and renewal into our life and extra power behind our intentions set forth on this day.
Cacao is not a psychedelic, but it is an entheogen, and thus has be known as the “Food of the Gods” by the Mayan people for millennia. Cacao helps us to connect with our higher selves through an ever-more open heart and mind. The community becomes the shaman and we learn from new insights of one another and the reflections of aspects of ourselves that are ready to be seen, and with this we will create a space where new awareness can be gained and healing can occur.
This is a ceremony of life where we can feel and experience the joy and happiness, sadness, pain and grief, anger and confusion, and anything in between. We may connect with our guides from other realms, or perhaps just experience a simple, clear and spacious mind.
This ceremony will be the first offering and an opportunity to introduce Conscious Cause to our local community.  We are joining together to offer this workshop.  Conscious Cause is a faith based non-profit & vibrational wellbeing community movement here to awaken, elevate, and inspire humanity to transcend trauma and addiction, and raise the collective consciousness through ancient and modern holistic wellness practices, transformational community experiences, and devotional partnership with nature as sacrament. We offer plant medicine preparation and somatic integration before and after ceremonies. If you would like personalized support leading up to or following this event please contact

– Drinking a cup of 100% pure, ceremonial-grade cacao, education/history around this heart-medicine of a plant, and diving into a meditation with her spirit

We will be guided by a long-time practitioner and space-holder to work with the Spirit of Cacao in a beautiful way. The creative visionary and journeyman of the Holy Wow Cacao project, Mat Chandler, has worked with cacao for 9+ years and moved to Guatemala 4.5 years ago to work with Cacao directly at the source. He has also studied with and brings the medicine vibes of tribes in the Amazon of Brazil, Peru, and Colombia. The cacao we will work with is Cacao he will be bringing that’s been formed within their Mayan Cacao Collective, called Las Manos de la Tierra.
Jeni Holla will also be facilitating a connection for the group with the energy of the Akashic Records. The Akashic Records are a multidimensional energetic field that holds all soul’s past, present, and future possibilities and is used for soul growth and a deeper understanding of one’s purpose and self. Every person has an Akashic Record known by numerous names across cultures, including the “book of life.” The energy of the Akashic Records is expansive and sacred and a perfect compliment to the deep dive into the Sacred energy of Cacao.
