Raw cacao is an incredible tool that increases mental and physical alertness and leads to a greater awareness for those who seek it. When partaking in a cacao ceremony, whether it be medicinal or spiritual, the user should think about their intention and keep that at the center of their mind and heart during and after the session. Since Cacao increases blood flow and circulation and is an excellent addition to physical rituals like yoga or Tai Chi.
Many cacao ceremony participants report feeling the effects up to 2-3 days after with feelings of peace, joy, lightness, ease and relaxation. In order to prolong these effects we recommend having delicious healthy food and avoiding stressful or exhausting activities following the session. It is important to note that in some cases, the after effects arrive in the form of retrospection and emotional turmoil, almost always surrounding issues that require your immediate attention.
