Romany's Journey with Cacao

The first time I consumed chocolate as medicine was during a cacao ceremony in 2014, held at the raw food restaurant where I worked, in Fremantle, Western Australia. But it wasn't until 2016, when my closest friend returned from travels through Central America and urged me to source some ceremonial cacao paste, that I truly realized the healing nature of this plant and I soon fell in love with the spirit of Cacao. 

My husband Eduardo and I have been sharing a morning practice of gratitude over cups of steaming cacao for the past 6 years. There aren't really words to describe the positive effects it has had for us as individuals and in our relationship. Cacao allows us to commune with nature, connect from the heart, and create space for more love, truth and beauty in our lives.

Over the years, we've been blessed to connect with a global family of cacao lovers on similar paths of healing and awakening. I hope that Cacao finds you wherever you are on your journey, and may she gently guide you inward to discover the miracle that you are.
