MEET OUR
SACRED CHOCOLATE CEREMONIALISTS

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CACAO CEREMONIALIST
FOR YOUR EVENT OR A ONE ON ONE SESSION?

We are deeply honoured to introduce you to our star graduates from our Sacred Chocolate Shamanic Cacao Apprenticeship.

These remarkable luminous leaders have gone on to become exquisite facilitators of Sacred Chocolate Shamanic Cacao Ceremonies and are available to be booked for group or one on one events with our highest recommendation and blessings. 

WHAT IS A 'SACRED CHOCOLATE SHAMANIC CACAO CEREMONY?'

Experience a true and authentic Cacao Ceremony that is steeped in Ancient Wisdom, tradition, Lineage and Light.

 Your Ceremonialist will work with the powerful forces of the seen and unseen natural world to create an impeccable container for you and your participants to journey within. 

You will be guided inward using a variety of modalities (which you can ask your Ceremonialist to elaborate on) to help you uncover and remember the truth of who you really are. 

Each Ceremonialist is trained by Jemmita and her team to work shamanically and also encouraged and supported to bring forward their own unique flavour and authentic wisdom and essence to their Ceremonies. 

This way no two Ceremonialists will be alike, but you can rest assured that the foundational container you are being held in is rock solid, fully supportive and saturated in Light.

This is what makes the experience of a Sacred Chocolate Shamanic Cacao Ceremony so unique.

 Our Ceremonialists have undergone intensive inner processes and training, and have learned the tools to traverse and transform their own processes, so they are prepared and ready to be in service to others.

It gives me great joy and pleasure to introduce them to you here, and witness the beauty of the magic unfolding as they share their Ceremonies around the world, with our Global Family. 

You can reach out to each of our Ceremonialists directly or feel free to drop us a line at [email protected] for any questions. 

 

 Blessings on your Ceremony!

ELYA SALIE

Next to being a Shiatsu therapist and Spaceholder in Ceremony, I am above all, a mother of 2, a friend, a daughter, a sister, and a lover

Born in the Netherlands, I travelled the world, studied Communications, became a producer and then turned my life around.
Graduated from the Zen Shiatsu School in Amsterdam in June 2019, I am now officially a Zen Shiatsu Therapist.
During my last year of studies I specialized in burn-out and I found that my power lays in triggering and guiding transformation.
Maestra Cacao became my allie in guiding these processes.
I have my practice in Amsterdam and work in the Netherlands since my group ceremonies are not held in English yet.I offer group cacao ceremonies in my practice, at yoga schools and on festivals and campings. Not online. (Dutch)

I offer one to one (cacao) ceremonies both in my practice and online, I combine cacao and ceremony with the clean beautiful clean language method of one of my masters: nick pole...(book: words that touch) it is a very strong combination and it keeps surprising me what comes of it!!!

My first connection with Maestra Cacao was on a Peru pilgrimage with Jem in 2019. I fell in love with the gentle, yet powerful healing of the medicine. It is truly an honour to now be a Sacred Chocolate Shamanic Cacao Ceremonialist.

I am passionate about helping women reconnect with themselves and bring them back to the present. Immersing ourselves with nature really helps with this process. I host wellness day retreats for small, intimate groups of women at a log cabin in the forest. A stunning location with the cabin situated on a lake. It’s an opportunity to get away from everything and go off grid while there. A perfect place to just be and relax, to get connected to Mother Nature. It’s a day of restorative yoga, relaxation and cacao ceremonies. I combine powerful cacao ceremonies with yoga nidra for deep relaxation. 

I also offer cacao ceremonies for small groups and one-to-one in person and online.  I am located outside Trondheim, Norway.

TAYLA WATSON

Tayla lives each day with the intention that her whole life is to be a ceremony and a celebration. It wasn’t always that way (and she still has her moments), but through being a forever student and sharing her teachings of yoga & meditation, ecstatic dance and cacao ceremonies she truly believes these magnificent modalities are what opens her to the remembering that she is the creator of this beautiful life.

In Tayla’s ceremonies, you can expect her to use a mixture of these modalities that have supported her so deeply in her own magical creation of living awake, not asleep. Tayla feels her dharma is to guide souls in their remembering of the sweetness of life. Tayla invites us to weave a magical web of light and love in ceremony together.

When Tayla is not in ceremony, she also weaves this magic into her work ‘womens heart medicine guide', friend, daughter, sister and lover.

Tayla’s offerings are based on the south coast of Australia (Illawarra, NSW) from Thirroul, Kiama through to Berry.
