Let's deepen your connection to cacao and grow your ritual practice.

In our July Ritual Forecast Part 1, we've highlighted meaningful astrological dates that help you align with the natural cycles of Earth, significant days to celebrate and reflect with cacao, and notable historical events. This offers you a mix of cosmic and grounded cacao ritual.

In addition, we recommend specific cacaos to support your intentions on these special days. 

Each day is an opportunity to go deeper with your ceremony by dedicating more time, planning a more involved ritual, perhaps increasing your cacao dose, or planning ahead for a (virtual) group ritual with friends, loved ones, and the larger community.

How will you make your rituals authentic to you this month?

Let us know! We look forward to hearing from you. 

*P.S. - Stay tuned for your Ritual Report Part 2 in the middle of the month!

Cacao Ritual - Inspiration & Suggestions

Wed. July 7th | World Chocolate Day

World Chocolate Day is a global celebration of chocolate, an invitation for chocolate lovers to indulge in their favorite treat without any guilt. To really enjoy chocolate guilt-free demands several key understandings.

First, an awareness of how chocolate candy came to be: colonization, suppression, and oppression of indigenous culture, extraction and degradation of natural resources (and humans), and many more harmful things. However, ceremonial cacao (not chocolate candy) reconnects us with cacao as a sacred plant, as it was before colonizers brought it to the world.

Second, guilt-free enjoyment demands an appreciation for cacao as a healing plant in its purest and whole-food form, which carries enormous benefits for the human mind and body.

Prepare a cup heart-opening cup of Tantric Rose Blossom today and offer your gratitude to the indigenous cultures that discovered and cultivated cacao long ago. If you could share a cup of ceremonial cacao with them today, what would you say, ask, or offer?

Fri. July 9th | New Moon in Cancer

What makes you feel safe and secure? This New Moon invites us to build our awareness and feeling of being at home. Descend into your roots with Medicinal Mushroom Enhanced 100% Cacao today.

A mushroom is the flowering body of mycelium, which is the vegetative root of all mushrooms. Underneath the ground, mycelium networks physically connect with each other, sharing vital nutrients and communicating important information about the health of their home environment.

When and where do you feel most at home in the world? What are you really feeling in those moments? How can you link roots with others to feel more safe and secure?

Sat. July 10th | International Essential Oils Day

International Essential Oils Day (IEOD) is a celebration of the power and benefits of essential oils. To create more “advanced” cacao rituals, try optimizing your physical/energetic space with essential oils. Just like cacao, these plants can carry wisdom and impact your state of being. 

Connect with the purity of Glowing Guatemala and get curious as to which oils are synergistic with your rituals. Try diffusing different oils before you start preparing cacao, rub them into your palms and breathe them, or anoint yourself wherever your body needs it. For uplifting rituals, try diffusing Peppermint or citrus oils while you drink cacao. For grounding, try lavender or cedar woods.

How can you unlock the deeper benefits of cacao by inviting essential oils into your rituals? 

Mon. July 12th | National Simplicity Day

This day honors the life and work of Henry David Thoreau a naturalist, transcendentalist, poet, and author. An advocate of living simply, Thoreau spent 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days living in a cottage by a pond, where he wrote the famous book Walden.

Thoreau once said, “In short, I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one’s self on this earth is not a hardship but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely.

Enjoy a pure cup of Boundless Belize and reflect: how can you thrive by simplifying your life? What can you remove from your life that would get you closer to yourself and to the planet?
