Cacao & Love

A Sensual Cacao Ceremony

How does cacao affect us?

Cacao has been known for centuries as a medicinal plant in Guatemala, Peru and other South American countries. The Mayas and Aztecs have been using xocolatl, as they call cacao, as a drink and also as an important component in religious rituals. Cacao is known for its heart-opening effect, which allows us to access the spiritual realms and may thus help us trace deeply hidden emotions, allow us to connect with them and reintegrate them into our system.
At YouMeUnity, we combine the sense of touch with the positive effects of natural cacao, which is specially produced for ritual purposes. During our rituals, a loving, safe space will be created. In this magical atmosphere we invite you to meet yourself and others on the heart level. Meditation and breath, light and shadow, joyful presence and stillness, ecstasy and perfect peace. All of this you may encounter during one of our cacao ceremonies. Anything might happen, but if nothing happens, that’s just as good.

Cacao in pieces and as beans and powder

During our ceremonies we sound and sing powerful songs. We also invite silenceto keep us company. During the meditative phase, you can keep to yourself or cuddle up with somebody to feel their loving, appreciative presence. Cacao is a very gentle medicine, and it will show you exactly what you need to see.

Our own special experiences with this wonderful plant

Joy S. and Thomas Hochgesang

It was cacao that made the two of us meet: Joy with her fairy nature had fallen in love with the magic of this plant and thus decided to attend a cacao ceremony in Heidelberg. That's when she first set eyes on Thomas ... It could have been the heart-opening effect of the plant that initiated our special connection. Or maybe it was just surrendering to the incredible, magnetic pull that kept bringing us close together. We can't know for sure, but we highly recommend cacao for initiating a relationship. A cacao ceremony can help you remember that life is pure magic. Are you ready? Come and try for yourself!

Level 1: Beginners and advanced

Good to know: Traditionally, it is often recommended not to eat anything 2-4 hours before you participate in a Cacao Ceremony. You should also not consume any animal products, heavy foods, alcohol or coffee on the day of the event. This way the plant is given the opportunity to develop its maximum effect. However, we are in tantra. Which is why we will simply suggest you eat consciously and not more than necessary before the ceremony.

Dress code: Just like during Soul Sounds, everyone is asked to be dressed during the ritual. When we start with the tantric temple time, you decide what to wear and what not.
