As longtime practitioners/teachers of yoga and qigong, this husband/wife team, have been working with unroasted cacao for over 11 years, creating delectable, superfood-enhanced treats, while observing and experimenting with its physical and metaphysical properties. Their concurrent study of herbalism  and human energetics of various traditions has led them to a profound and unique perspective in the use of cacao as a sacrament, elixir, and catalyst for inner alchemy and higher consciousness.

 A strong, sacramental cacao elixir will be served as Aradhana and Truth-I weave together a synergistic musical, meditative, energy cultivation experience of ceremonial chocolate, music and prayer! We have observed that chocolate, and especially a strong brew of cacao, made with love and intention opens gateways in the human heart and spirit, and when combined with inward contemplation, reflection on the inner light, and fellowship in a safe container, it proves a warm and gentle catalyst to greater states of gratitude, compassion for Self and others, forgiveness, and peace. This can be an opportunity for channeling creativity, opening to ecstatic states, freeing our voices and connecting to the energies of the heart-fire. With the assistance of the Cacao medicine we are enabled to journey more deeply into our heartspace to connect with each other and Source energy. Each ceremony is unique, but there will surely be singing, silence, listening, accessing inner wisdom, and opportunity to commune with self, higher self, and each other. All feelings are welcome in this safe, sacred container harnessing the potential for great growth and love.

The idea was birthed to create Chocolate Church! Because of our desire to nurture community gatherings and create a container to dive deeper into healing, contemplation, wisdom, and magic, with the assistance of our powerful Cacao brew, we began holding weekly meetings in January, 2018.  After a summer of festivals and touring we are happy to announce that Chocolate Church has returned (with a few breaks here and there for our fall festival schedule)   https://www.facebook.com/events/234608907244549/


About Chocolate Church...

Chocolate Church has arisen from our 10+ years experience of using cacao in our spiritual practice as a medicinal sacrament and focuses on creating a container for contemplation and deep inquiry. We have observed that chocolate, and especially a strong brew of cacao, made with love and intention opens gateways in the human heart and spirit, and when combined with inward contemplation, reflection on the Divine, and fellowship in a safe container, it proves a warm and gentle catalyst to greater states of gratitude, compassion for Self and others, forgiveness, and peace.

Our Chocolate Church meeting invokes the ancient root word for church- circe/cirke (circle), and involves the use of deep inward exploration through a period of silent meditation, followed by an exercise of “active listening.” Modeled in part after a Quaker meeting, participants are asked to reflect inward, listen deeply, practice discernment and share as the Spirit inspires.

In this way we receive reflections, messages, lessons, and wisdom from our collective which leads to further contemplation of purpose, presence, and service to the greater good. With the assistance of the Cacao medicine we are enabled to journey more deeply into our heartspace to connect with each other and the Divine.

This section is followed by facilitation that leads into a community forum where profound discussion is fostered. There will be singing, silence, listening, wisdom, and opportunity to commune with self, Great Spirit and each other. All feelings are welcome in this safe, sacred container harnessing the potential for great growth and love.

In the months that we are not traveling to festivals, we host Chocolate Church at our space near downtown Asheville, every Sunday, from 1-3pm.  See our Facebook page for details  https://www.facebook.com/events/234608907244549/
