Sacred Cacao Ceremony

Sacred Cacao Ceremony. An invitation to tend to your sacred heart.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

I’ve just come from guiding a sacred cacao ceremony. I playfully call it the Chocolate Temple Journey.  It was an intimate gathering.  Each individual came for their own personal reason. We each sat, sipping a cup of warm, rich chocolate made with sacred cacao from Guatemala. We shared what called us to explore our inner landscape during this particular gathering. And then, each of us gently opened ourselves to the see what aspect of life wanted to join our collective playtime for the evening.

Chocolate Temple Journal, reflections on sacred cacao and the inner templeCT Blog Line Page SeparatorThis Chocolate Temple Journal is a collection of my personal reflections on sacred cacao and the inner sanctuary of Self and Source.  I share some of my thoughts here to give you an idea of where the spirit of cacao can take us when we invite it to partner with us on a journey of self-inquire and self-discovery.

Excerpts from the Chocolate Temple Journal

The chocolate elixir was especially creamy tonight…and the cayenne pepper gave it a good kick! I remember thinking that it was as rich and silky as the deep ah-ha’s the group shared with me.  I remember thinking the circle of my cup felt like a tiny representation of the Universe…the Universe I live in and the Universe that exists inside of me.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony with Rachel Payne of Creativity Tribe

Big ideas often come after drinking cacao, and this sacred cacao ceremony was no different.

I felt clumsy in the beginning.  But in all actuality, that was perfect.  The group was small, made up half of cacao ceremony regulars and half of those new to the plant and the process.

I could sense excitement and a bit of discomfort in the group.  I think the discomfort was simply coming from walking into a new experience.  Even those who had come many times to sit with cacao had never come to a group soley guided by me.  I spontaneously found myself talking about this place we found ourselves in….this Unknowing. I felt Spirit guiding my sharing.

I dove in….

I confessed to feeling clumsy.  I confessed to feeling starkly aware that we were all moving into uncharted territory….especially those of us who were used to drinking cacao together for years in a circle guided by another who we all respected dearly and had gotten into a comfortable groove with.  I confessed to feeling nervous about showing off my own personal groove.

I felt naked….but calling myself out, transparently claiming my vulnerability felt empowering.  I laughed and boldly stated that my intention for the night was to lean into my experience and courageously be as clumsy and awkward as I needed to do what I felt guided to do for the group.

They all laughed with me.  I gave myself permission to showed up flawed and authentic, and as I did, I felt the group shift.  They leaned into the Mystery of the evening with me.

And the Mystery was beautiful.

Eclectic Soul Podcast

encouraging creativityEclectic Soul Podcast

This last week I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon visiting with Cindy Jones Lantier of Spiritual Guidance for the Eclectic Soul for her Eclectic Soul Podcast.  Cindy is a spiritual mentor who’s podcast inspires those walking their own spiritual path.  Eclectic Soul is a practical guide for navigating a fulfilling and meaningful spiritual life with integrity, resonance…. and just a bit of woo. 

Cindy and I have worked together for several years now, supporting one another as visioning partners, brainstorm buddies, and good friends.  When she approached me about the interview, I felt felt deeply honored to be included.

My Unique Spiritual Voice

I have always known my spiritual path was unique, quirky, and yes, even eclectic.  Being given the opportunity to share my own personal take on spirituality gave me a lot to think about.  As Creatives, anytime we express our heart’s desire, we risk judgement.  Courageous creativity is all about bold, radical self-expression.  In the podcast, I talk about that kind of vulnerability in relation to expression of spirituality as well.  If you have ever felt tender hearted about sharing your beliefs, you may be able to relate.

You can find the interview, along with highlights, and the quote I chose to share over at the Eclectic Soul Podcast. Click below….
