Cacao Spirit, Equine Hearts

$40 per person/ group of 3 minimum

$75 single private session

Join us at Small Blessings for magical nights with the horses, donkeys and plant medicine. Cacao has been used not only as medicine, but in ceremony, ritual, and as currency too. As medicine, cacao, while it is not a psychedelic, has naturally occurring serotonin which gives us the feeling of joy or euphoria. Phenylethylanine, also found in cacao, stimulates the nervous system to release endorphins, which also makes us feel good, alert and focused. High in magnesium and theobromine, cacao is an excellent anti-oxidant and helps with improved circulation. ​However, there are some precautions. Studies show that if you are taking anti-depressants that contain MAOIs, it may contraindicate which may lead to headaches. Cacao is a vasodilator therefore those with heart conditions should be cautioned to mind their dosage (less quantity, smaller sips, greater dilution). 

Using pure 100% organic, fair trade cacao, we will begin meditation by infusing our cup of cacao with intention, and as we sip, allow the healing properties of the bean to open our hearts to receive her gifts. We will then invite the equines to join us in a guided meditation, followed by sharing and time with the animals.
