Amazing Training

I’m 4 weeks into this training, and so far it’s been a wonderful experience. I have always had an interest in facilitating cacao ceremonies but wasn’t sure where to start. The information shared in this course is absolutely fantastic. Soul Lift Cacao is also a beautiful brand, offering the best quality ceremonial cacao I’ve ever had. I highly recommend.

Where do I begin…

I’m a yoga teacher and sound bath practitioner. I was looking for something to add to the toolkit because, as Nick also says, each person needs a different medicine and I thought it would be lovely if I had something else in the bag to offer. Here is how it’s going:

The first sip… “Okay, why is he speaking so slowly?…Weeeell…Why exactly do I need a faster delivery? Where do I need to be anyway? What would be the point of speeding up intake? Ah, the judge is here. Salty. Let’s take a seat, shall we?” Already a lesson within the lesson.

Second sip… “Oh, that’s rich! Complex, yet simple and refined.” Nick addresses his vagueness. It’s intentional. He offers the science and history very concisely and thoroughly. Bites just big enough for you to chew on and respond to in a slow, meaningful way so you actually synthesize the experience and information.

Third sip… “Aw, THIS is the good s$@$% (stuff)! I think Nick might BE the cacao. Lol. Incidentally, the answer to why he speaks at the speed he does is in the third sip/module. And it makes complete sense. This is what it feels like to be aware of someone holding space for you while showing you how to hold space. The magic is unfolding with each taste.

That is pretty much the basic representation of how the modules are progressing for me. I’ve just finished the videos for the third module. Each one has hit different parts of me a lot like taste hits the different parts of the tongue—sometimes bitter, sometimes meaty/umami, sometimes sweet, etc., but like a good cacao, the quality, complexity and clarity come through. The information is comprehensive and “full,” but never overwhelming. They're explored more deeply and intimately through the exercises assigned after each module. I think of it as "therapeutic discomfort" (also addressed in a module). You know how it is, the way a long held yin yoga pose feels-- a little painful from atrophy and in need of attention or like discovering a muscle you forgot you even had. Still sitting with the memory of the first three modules, but very much looking forward to the next sip when the fourth is unlocked. Cheers!

Perfect example of conscious ceremonial facilitation

This course is definitely worth the price of admission. I found myself resonating deeply with the philosophies Nick shares, and found the first three modules to be highly impactful in terms of setting the right mindset to enter into the role of ceremonial facilitator. I have completed the first half of the program as of this review, and find the ‘how to’ nature of the middle section of the program to be very helpful, especially for anyone who has not experienced creating or hosting live events. I highly look forward to the last four weeks, as the titles of those modules feel very much aligned to what I wanted to learn in this program.

A worthwhile investment for people of all spiritual backgrounds

This 10 week experience deepened my relationship with ceremonial cacao, with the cacao community at large, and with my own budding spiritual framework. I learned not just how to create sacred containers for others, but how to foster moments of reverence just for me, so that my cup is actually full enough for others to drink from. Nick is a flexible and adept educator with a keen understanding of how everyone's approach to spirituality differs, which makes this course material easily applicable to many traditions, many walks of life, and many communities. Avoiding cultural appropriation is a fine line to walk; Nick's years of experience working directly with indigenous Guatemalan communities allowed him to find that delicate balance between giving thanks and paying homage, and creating his own ceremonies that allow Mayan tradition to stay unique to the Mayan lineage. The producers of Soul Lift's cacao want their medicine spread far and wide, but enjoying their generosity ethically and authentically is up to us.

The very concept of a "ceremony" is deconstructed into its component parts and parallels are drawn between all traditions; in truth, all any ceremony boils down to is some combination of community, symbolism, breathwork, movement, music, sharing, and reverence. It's just an opportunity to ground our energy and re-connect to our both our innermost self and our highest intuition, and it can happen either alone in our bedrooms or in a room full of people. Nick challenged us to approach our outward expression of spirituality as a creative outlet, and to delve into the influences, be they cultural, environmental, or spiritual, that have already shaped us individually. We learned how essential it is to honor our own lifelong journeys before assisting others in theirs. Staying true to ourselves is the best and only way to show up authentically for other seekers who come to us for ceremony, and cacao is nothing if not the medicine of TRUTH. If you are at all curious about ceremonial cacao, about holding ceremony, about articulating your spiritual framework to the world, or all of the above, this course, is highly, highly recommended. Endless gratitude for Nick, his healing vision, and his unstoppable work ethic! You are truly doing God's work...

Comprehensive learning experience

I very much enjoyed the 10-week Cacao Powered Facilitator Course. I came in with a basic knowledge of ceremonial cacao and finished feeling confident and excited to incorporate ceremonial cacao into my life and healing practices. This course provides an overview into the many facets of cacao, including nutritional benefits, plant spirit medicine and energetics as well as introduces one to the principles of group facilitation that lead to creating and holding safe containers and experiences.
I was especially grateful for the conversations around ethical practices with using and sourcing cacao, and am happy to have found a company like Soul Lift Cacao! I look forward to many more cups of cacao and to sharing this beautiful medicine with others.
Thank you, Nick!!

Le facilitateur propulsé par le cacao : cours autoguidé de 10 semaines

Avez-vous entendu parler du potentiel magique du cacao de cérémonie et vous vous demandez de quoi il s'agit ? Ou l’avez-vous vécu par vous-même et souhaitez-vous apprendre à le partager avec les autres ?

Au cours de ce voyage épique de 10 semaines, vous entrerez dans un creuset conçu pour vous aider à avancer sur votre chemin en tant qu'animateur d'expériences cacao.


Cela pourrait signifier que vous organiserez des cérémonies. Ou cela peut signifier que vous ajouterez du cacao à vos cours de yoga, à vos groupes d'hommes, à vos événements de danse, à votre pratique de massage ou de Reiki, que vous l'apporterez à votre organisation ou que vous le partagerez avec vos amis et votre famille.

Le chemin de chacun est différent. Ce cours vous aidera à découvrir votre chemin unique avec les conseils d'un instructeur expert, Nick Meador, fondateur de Soul Lift Cacao.

Ce cours adopte une approche pratique et terre-à-terre pour travailler le cacao de manière éthique et responsable.

Tout au long des 10 semaines, vous couvrirez tous les aspects de l'animation, de l'idée de rassemblement à la logistique et à la promotion, en passant par la préparation et le service du cacao, la prise de parole en public et le leadership, l'éthique et la sécurité, etc. Vous aurez l'occasion de travailler sur blocages avec des exercices autodirigés.

OBJECTIF DU COURS

1) La philosophie de la facilitation transformationnelle et du maintien d’espaces sûrs

2) Développement personnel en tant que leader et orateur public à une époque complexe

3) Introduire le cacao dans un contexte moderne de guérison et de développement personnel tout en « redonnant » par la reconnaissance et le paiement

À PROPOS DE VOTRE INSTRUCTEUR

Nick a passé des années à voyager à travers l'Amérique centrale pour se connecter avec des fermes de cacao, des collectifs et des experts. Et il forme les gens à partager le cacao seuls depuis 2017.

En plus de cela, Nick s’engage sur la voie de la facilitation transformationnelle depuis près d’une décennie. Il s'est formé dans diverses traditions, écoles et lignées pour la guérison et le développement personnel, et recherche les principes et les dynamiques qui les unissent.

Bien que le cacao soit un allié végétal doux et qu'il n'existe aucune accréditation ou certification internationale pour travailler avec le cacao, il est très important de recevoir une formation d'un expert avant de partager du cacao lors d'un atelier ou d'une cérémonie. Voici votre chance !

TÉMOIGNAGE D'UNE FORMATION ANTÉRIEURE

"Je voudrais dire que j'ai vraiment apprécié votre cours de formation. J'ai découvert que j'avais reçu beaucoup plus d'informations et de connaissances sur la cérémonie du cacao, la production du cacao et le cacao lui-même. J'adore la visite virtuelle que vous avez incluse. Honnêtement, j'en ai appris davantage. de ce cours que le cours précédent que j'ai suivi. Alors merci. Je me sens un peu plus en confiance qu'avant pour répondre aux questions qui semblent se poser lors des cérémonies.

"Encore une fois, merci beaucoup. Honnêtement, j'ai vraiment apprécié le cours que vous avez organisé et je vous suis reconnaissant de partager ces connaissances." -Jenn (Saskatchewan, Canada)

À PROPOS DU CACAO DE CÉRÉMONIE

Le cacao est une forme naturelle et non transformée de chocolat cultivé dans les régions tropicales du monde entier. La plupart des gens connaissent le cacao comme un superaliment. Il contient probablement la plus grande quantité d’antioxydants de tous les aliments. Le cacao contient des minéraux bénéfiques comme le fer et le magnésium. Et le principal composé actif, la théobromine, donne un regain d'énergie sans les crashs ni les fringales qui peuvent provenir du café.

Mais le cacao a aussi un autre aspect dont on ne parle pas dans les magasins de produits naturels. Les légendes racontent que d’anciennes civilisations mésoaméricaines utilisaient le cacao à des fins introspectives et festives, l’appelant la « nourriture des dieux » et l’échangeant même comme monnaie d’échange. Ce côté « médecine végétale » plus mystérieux du cacao offre le potentiel de vous mettre davantage en contact avec votre corps et votre âme. Vous pouvez avoir un aperçu de la meilleure direction à prendre pour aller de l’avant, ainsi que de la concentration et de la motivation nécessaires pour agir pour atteindre ces objectifs.

Vous serez étonné de la rapidité avec laquelle vous pourrez apprendre à préparer et à servir du cacao afin que vos clients et les membres de votre communauté puissent ressentir un impact positif dans leur vie !

REMARQUE : Il ne s'agit pas d'un cours sur les pratiques cérémonielles indigènes, l'histoire ancienne ou la cosmovision maya. Ce cours consiste à animer des ateliers modernes avec le cacao cérémonial comme allié. Nick travaille en collaboration avec des guides mayas pour les aider à préserver leurs traditions et valeurs spirituelles. Cela se produit également en s'approvisionnant en cacao cérémonial par le biais d'un commerce direct éthique qui soutient davantage les préparateurs indigènes de cacao que dans les modèles de fabrication du chocolat « de la fève à la barre ». De cette manière, nous pouvons utiliser le cacao dans un contexte moderne, avec respect et intégrité, grâce à une transmission éthique d'éléments culturels qui redonne sous forme de reconnaissance et de paiement.
