What's you will learn

Module 1

From Seed to Ceremony
In this first module together, we will be introducing cacao, how it is different from chocolate, and explain the 5 keys to what makes cacao ceremonial quality. I’m going to take you behind the scenes with Cacao Source: there, you will understand the level of love, care, and intentionality that goes into a sacred cup of ceremonial cacao.What exactly is it that makes a cup of cacao ceremonial? It’s really about where it’s coming from and where it’s going. In this first module, we’ll cover 5 keys that distinguish ceremonial cacao.
    1. Genetics of the cacao
    2. Cultivation
    3. Processing the raw seeds
    4. Preparing the drink
    5. & the intention behind the drink
It’s the all about the quality of each one of these keys that creates a ceremonial grade cacao. Appreciation means to increase the value of something. Through this knowledge, it’s my intention to allow you to greater appreciate cacao. This will deepen your own relationship to it, and how you go on to share it with others.
