Cacaoista Ceremonial Cacao Recipe Book

This recipe book is a collection of 12 recipes used by the Mayans as ceremonial beverages, for mental, physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Each of the recipes incorporates a different grain, herb or spice, with explanations of how to make them and why they use them.

I also include a description and suggestions of more modern ways to work with cacao in ceremonies such as adding essential oils and vibrational plant essences. These have been tried and tested by myself in ceremonies for over 5 years, and I can truly say they have changed my life and the lives of many others I have worked with.

I hope you enjoy exploring these recipes together during ceremony!

I began my journey into the healing world of plant spirit medicine over 30 years ago, whilst searching for my own healing.

Like most shamanic practitioners, I am a classic tale of a wounded healer - as a young woman I had deep spiritual and emotional wounds, which were ruining my physical health, I had to look for alternative ways to heal as the doctors were lost as to how to help me.  I met a healer who worked with herbs and homoeopathy and she gave me the herb calendula - she was my first great healer and teacher - it was love at first bite. I will never forget the feeling of happiness and warmth spreading through me when I first took her as a medicine, so gentle, yet so powerful.  I instantly began to heal physically too, and from that moment I became fascinated by the world of herbal medicine,  the science, and traditional wisdom.

I went on to train as a Medical Herbalist at University, initially focusing on Western Herbal Medicine in a very scientific way, qualifying in 1999.  Very early on in my path as an apprentice healer, experiences led me to discover and train in many other forms of healing including Hypnotherapy, Hypnobirthing, Clinical Aromatherapy, Therapeutic Massage, Advanced Reiki, Gong & Sound Healing and also Shamanism and Cacao Ceremony.

My training in shamanic traditions is eclectic, with over 25 years of training and continued mentorship with Indigenous Shamans from Peru, Ecuador, Medicine people from North America, Pagans, Druids, Cacaoistas and Plant Spirit Medicine Healers. I weave together my medical and shamanic traditions to share these powerful healing techniques, for your mind, body and spirit.

I have been a teacher of natural health, from beginner to advanced postgraduate. My clients have included The Psychedelic Society, Low-impact Living Initiative, The Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy, Learn-Direct, The Shoreditch Spa, and The University of West London. I now teach privately, running a variety of both live events and online courses in Herbal Medicine, Plant Spirit Medicine & Shamanism.
