These practitioners have demonstrated a thorough understanding and competence in creating ethical, consent-based, and trauma-informed containers for modern transformational experiences with cacao.
Dozens of people have taken our 10-week course in either the live or self-guided format. But our Practitioner Program (where certificate holders get a listing here plus other support) is still very new.
So check back regularly to see facilitators who are hosting cacao experiences online and/or in-person.
