Cacao Events

Nick Meador hosts full-length Cacao Journeys and shorter Cacao Circles in-person in the Portland area.

Check out this testimonial from the 2022 Summer Solstice Cacao Journey:

"Thank you again for a truly beautiful experience on Saturday.  I am so impressed with your powers of intuition and your ability to guide a journey in this way. You are gifted. I so appreciate your cultural sensitivity, your dedication, and your appreciation of this beautiful plant medicine and the people who make it available to those of us fortunate enough to learn about it and experience it." - Angela Davis, yoga teacher


Soul Lift Cacao offers private ceremonies and can also serve cacao at events. Please contact us for more information. 

Our ceremonies are based on the Soul Lift Cacao Method and involve five aspects: Intention, Medicine, Embodiment, Inter-Action, and Integration.

We incorporate wisdom from many healing and self-development modalities in an ethical way, giving credit where it is due and only using practices for which we have extensive training.

We have cultivated a method that is trauma-informed and places heavy emphasis on consent and safety.

Our Mayan cacao sources emphasize that they want the cacao medicine to spread far and wide, and that anyone can serve it as long as they're humble and respectful.

It's also important to be careful with how and where ceremonial cacao is sourced. Our model goes above and beyond for transparency and ethics, sending an average of 11x the "Fair Trade" rate per pound of cacao back to the source country.

You’ll be amazed how much positive shift and connection can come from a modern cacao journey. In a virtual ceremony, everyone makes a cup of cacao at home before tuning into a video conference.

We have paused our public events during the opening phase of our first cacao cafe in Portland, Oregon, but are accepting proposals for private events, either online or in-person. Please contact us with inquiries.

You can also join our newsletter for updates as events are planned.  


These are unique opportunities to get a direct experience of the Mayan Cosmovision and meet ceremonial cacao artisans.

For example, Izaias Mendoza of San Marcos la Laguna makes Lavalove ceremonial cacao.

From Izaias: “Our Cacao ceremonies are attuned with the energies of each day according with the Mayan calendar, use the tools that every energy offers which is many of them to guide each person or group. This helps us to access deeper emotions and connects us with our roots taking us back to our Mother Earth. We use the energies of fire, air, water, earth, sun, clouds, mountain and animals.”
