Cacao Ceremony on the Zoe Retreat in Corfu

The Zoe Retreat to be held on the magical island of Corfu in Greece on 16 – 22 July 2016 with Sarita and Chintan now includes the very special offer of a Sacred Cacao Ceremony as part of the group!

Zoe RetreatDuring the ZOE Retreat we will harness these qualities of sacred Cacao to support us to journey into “Sophia: Embodied Wisdom”, the theme of this year’s retreat. The Cacao Ceremony will also support us to unveil our capacity for unconditional love and pagan joy. The ceremony will be held by Sarita and Chintan. Together they will guide the group into accessing liberation through love and ecstasy.

And what an amazing place to do that in, Corfu, one of Greece’s most lush and green islands. With daily access to a nude beach, and where you can indulge your entire body in the healing properties of mud baths just next to the sea.

Sarita sipping cacaoCacao was known as the food of the Gods by the ancient people of Mexico, Central and South America. At one time, it was prized as being of more value than gold and was traded as a form of money. Kings used it to be able to satisfy their harems and it was known to activate sources of love and energy within body and mind.

A quote from says: “N-acylethanolamines are compounds found in chocolate that are structurally similar to anandamine, which is similar to the cannabinoid responsible for euphoria from cannabis. These compounds may not exert their effect by binding with the tetrahydrocannabinol receptors, but by inhibiting breakdown of endogenously produced anandamine, thus prolonging a “natural high.” 

The Cacao Ceremony unveils our capacity for unconditional love and pagan joy. This incredible plant medicine, revered by South American peoples for millennia, has had it’s beneficial effects destroyed through the process of cooking with such additives as sugar and milk, turning it into what we know of as ‘chocolate’.

When cacao is prepared in it’s raw form as a consciousness inducing drink and imbibed in sacred ceremony, we can experience the full benefit of this miraculous “Food of the Gods.”

A typical Cacao Ceremony will take 4—6 hours and is best done on an empty stomach and in company with a group held by a mystic who understands the effects and can guide the group into accessing liberation through love and ecstasy.

During the cacao ceremony, you will be invited to let go of what is not serving you, call in what you would like to manifest in your life and to deeply open your full capacity for love and ecstasy. We will be moving into a deep process of unveiling our deepest self, Kundalini awakening, Trance Dance, and powerful Tantric Ritual.

In Tantra Essence Cacao Ceremonies, we use the highest ceremonial grade of cacao, carefully selected by a cacao shaman and shipped to us directly from Guatemala.


So join us for this holiday tantric retreat, ZOE, where we will be moving into a deep process of unveiling our deepest self, while inviting Kundalini awakening. Sophia after all, gave birth to “anthropos”, humans, who are both conscious and sensual!
