Whether you are new to cacao or have enjoyed countless cups, this gathering will be a place to ground down, relax, connect with community, explore this sacred plant, open your heart, set powerful intentions into motion, and receive whatever healing Mama Cacao intuitively knows to offer you.

In this experience, we will flow between sipping cacao, sharing the lineage, as well as the health and spiritual benefits of cacao, a guided meditation, and an opportunity for journaling, sprinkled with laughter, gentle movement, and intimate connection.

All are welcome as we come together to honor ourselves and this sacred medicine.

Cacao comes from the edible seed of the cacao tree, which is native to tropical regions such as Central and South America. After cacao beans are harvested from the tree, they are pulled from the shells and left in the sun to naturally ferment and dry. Cacao is known for its impressive
nutrient profile, and many even call it a “superfood,” as it is the most nutrient dense live food
there is. Cacao has 40 TIMES the heart-protective antioxidants of blueberries. It is one of the
highest concentrations of magnesium in any natural food source. It is the highest plant-based
source of iron, and has more calcium than cow’s milk. It supports brain function, cardiovascular
health, is anti aging, and so much more.

It is a sacred plant medicine that has been cultivated, harvested, and used in ceremony by Mayans for thousands of years. Beyond the powerful health benefits, cacao is a heart opening medicine, and allows us to tap into an elevated state of being. To put it simply, it’s like a hug from the inside out.

Ann-Britt Hakansson is on a mission to help the world return to joy. She believes that joy is our natural state of being and our birthright, but too often our modern world robs us of this feeling. Through intentional and experiential offerings, Ann-Britt provides a safe space for others to access their joy through connection, community, self expression and love. Since 2018, Ann-Britt has been facilitating cacao gatherings in the Lake Tahoe Basin and is deeply passionate about bringing people together on the land which she is so connected to.

Her events have a way of cracking your heart wide open, dropping you into your most authentic self and allowing you to be, move, and express however TF you want. Her background in yoga, reiki, business and life coaching, hypnotherapy, microdose / plant medicine guidance and embodiment contribute to a grounded, safe and open space to explore the medicinal benefits of cacao – and the other magic that comes through!
