About the Cacao:

Cacao is a delicious, heart-opening medicine stemming from Mayan traditions. Drinking cacao in ceremony where one is invited to connect with the spirit of cacao and invite it into the heartspace can bring profound healing experiences, especially when combined with movement such as dance. Cacao is just one more way to infuse Love into your dance!

The cacao we will drink comes from Alta-Verapaz, Guatemala and was processed in Lago Atítlan, Guatemala by a collective of women indigenous to Lago Atítlan. This ceremonial-grade cacao, 'Ruk'u'xUlew', means 'heart of the earth' in Kaqchikel, one indigenous language of Lago Atítlan. We will collectively gather in ceremony to serve and bless the cacao before we drink! To learn more about Ruk'u'xUlew Cacao, click here.
