The Medicine of Love
Cacao ceremonies have been a form of shamanic healing in the cultures of Mesoamerica for thousand years. The Aztec and Toltec believed that cacao was a key ingredient in restoring balance and connection to the divine. It was customary for them to drink cacao before discussing important issues or disharmonies in order to open the heart and help use discerning thinking.
