My journey with cacao began in 2011, during a magical plant medicine ceremony in the heart of the British countryside. I was astounded at the capacity of this little known medicine to open my heart into profound states of beauty, grace and joy. I was curious to learn more.
I began to import huge shipments of ceremonial grade cacao from Guatemala, incorporating the many gifts of its medicine with depth explorations of meditation, ritual magic and folk herbalism. When I discovered a farmer's co-operative in the Peruvian Andes who were cultivating an ancient strain of the tree using permaculture principles, I soon came to favour the naturally high cacao butter content of this unhybridised variety that gave a luxuriously rich flavour and warm sensuality to elixirs crafted from its fermented beans. This is the source of Cacao Love that I now ship to devotees all over the world.
Since 2012, I have served elixirs made from this exquisite Peruvian cacao to over one thousand participants in cacao ceremonies across the UK and Europe, and it often becomes the medicine of choice for facilitators working in service to this mystical and celestial plant intelligence.
