CO-FACILITATED BY SOUL LIFT CACAO FOUNDER NICK MEADOR

Nick spent years traveling throughout Central America connecting with cacao farms, collectives, and experts. He founded Soul Lift Cacao to create a positive impact in the world by helping Mayan collectives share their cacao in the U.S. and beyond.

On top of that, Nick has been on a path of facilitation, leadership, and self-development for about a decade. He has trained in various traditions, schools, and lineages for healing and self-development, and looks for the parallels that tie them together. 

Nick created the Soul Lift Cacao Method to provide an ethical and responsible way to share ceremonial cacao in modern settings, and to create safe containers for transformational journeys. He has been training people to share cacao on their own since 2017. 


ALSO CO-FACILITATED BY MARTIN AND SOLVEIG OF THE MAYAN WISDOM PROJECT

Martin and Solveig co-founded the Mayan Wisdom Project with the mission to create a bridge between the Mayan world and the rest of the world. Within the project, they make their network of 100% indigenous teachers available to help people overcome their blockages, create growth in their life, and learn about natural medicines – with the help of ancient Mayan technologies and holistic approaches.
The journey of the Mayan Wisdom Project with cacao is deeply rooted in the vision of bringing the floor back to the indigenous peoples of Mesoamerica to become the source of information for this medicine, as it is them after all who carry its legacy and ancestry in their blood. In a world where ceremonial cacao is growing, they aim to provide the true and authentic information, to ensure that the use of this medicine is followed with the proper permissions, respect, and ancient techniques that ensure the best results and a positive impact in the world. 

ABOUT CEREMONIAL CACAO

Cacao is the natural, unprocessed form of chocolate grown in tropical regions around the world. Most people know cacao as a superfood. It has possibly the highest amount of antioxidants of any food. Cacao contains beneficial minerals like iron and magnesium. And the main active compound, theobromine, gives a boost of energy without the crash or cravings that can happen with coffee.

Yet cacao also has another aspect not spoken about in health food stores. Legends tell of ancient Mesoamerican civilizations using cacao for introspective and celebratory purposes, calling it the “Food of the Gods” and even trading it like currency. This more mysterious "plant medicine" side of cacao offers the potential to put you more in touch with your body and your soul. You can gain insights into the best direction moving forward, as well as the focus and motivation to take action towards those goals.
