To sit in a circle is to sit with oneself, in company of fellow brothers and sisters with the same collective intention of communing with Athma, the Divine within. From sacred heart to sacred heart.
Raw cacao is one of the most dense superfoods, and is the highest source of magnesium on the planet. Additionally, it contains anandamide, a so-called "bliss chemical” that works with the heart's ability to expand, supports emotional clearing, and deepen the connection with self and with life. It is believed that the spirit of cacao has the power to reveal and unlock the secrets of the soul, bringing forth our ultimate truth in a way that is soft and lasting. However, Sacred Cacao does not act like a psychedelic. It does not take you on its trip, but facilitates your own.
As you settle into the practice, you can expect to feel a gentle expansion of the heart chakra, and a new quality of awareness.
