In a new article on Medium, Soul Lift Cacao founder Nick Meador tells the story of how ceremonial cacao came into his life and helped him overcome chronic illness. Here’s an excerpt:
I don’t remember the exact course of events in that first ceremony. I know it started with setting intentions and led into different embodiment and interactive practices allowing us to connect more deeply with ourselves and also connect with the others in a very enriching way.
Mainly I remember my own embodied experience. My heart felt like it was waking up after a long, murky slumber. I felt my blood pumping more quickly, but not in an alarming way… just more vibrant and alive.
Leaving the ceremony I felt energized and clear, which I noticed especially when I went right from there to lead my own workshop that had been scheduled far in advance. After nearly three years of hosting workshops, I was more lucid than ever.
I suddenly knew that cacao was going to be part of my life from that point forward.
