Cacao-NIT is as the name describes, we enjoy a cup of Keith’s ceremonial grade cacao and do NIT followed by an inner journey to access the power of your heart.
What is ceremonial cacao? This is a type of cacao, non-industrial, organic, and as unprocessed as it is possible to make it. We use only the highest grade ceremonial cacao we can find, The Original & World’s Finest 100% Pure Ceremonial Cacao, Keith’s Cacao. It is made in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala.
It is grown partially on small, organic farms, partially wild. Hand harvested, hand sorted, fermented and gently ground and packed. That’s it. Nothing added, nothing removed. Heat exposure is only from the fermentation process.
No wonder it is so rich! Rich in flavor, rich in nutrients and especially rich in the type of chemicals that makes us love chocolate, the lightly psychoactive chemicals like theobromine, anandamide, and a little caffeine.
So we use this special cacao for more than food and good taste. We use the nutrients the cacao contains to create more depth in our activity like going on an inner journey of discovery, to get inspiration, reflection, creativity, in meditation, in yoga or dance. There are many possibilities.
In this Cacao session we’ll combine NIT with cacao and a guided inner journey of discovery with a specific intention to get in deeper contact with the power of your heart.
What should you bring with you?
– A bottle of water (cocoa is mildly watery)
– A good mug for the cocoa drink
– Blanket and pillow
– Comfortable clothing
– Notebook and pen
– Some feelings/thoughts about an intention for the evening
– Some snacks – e.g. nuts or fruit
If possible, please avoid this before you come:
– Caffeine intake six hours before
– Dairy product, it prevents absorption of the antioxidants in the cocoa
– Large meal, 2-3 hours before you come, bring some snacks
– Alcohol etc.
NOTE: Heart disease. Cacao increases heart rate by 20-30%. If you take heart medication or have a pacemaker we advice users to start with a
lower dose of cacao. If you have a combination of a medical condition, underlying anxiety, stress or trauma, as well as the consumption of alcohol can enhance the experience with cacao – so here I advise you also to a lower dose. Tell your instructor if this is the case.
– Trauma and Tension Release Exercises course
The event will be conducted in Norwegian.
