Cacao facilitator training
About This Event
I'm offer an unique opportunity for a 3 or 5 day immersive training into the world of Sacred Cacao. I have years of experience facilitating medicine circles, primarily with Kambo and Ayahuasca as well as leading Kirtan singing circles which ultimately lead me to Cacao and holding Cacao ceremonies and one to one healing and guidance. I now feel called to help others unlock their potential as a facilitator, circle holder and server of sacred medicine.
Cacao is an ancient heart medicine with the capacity to bring deep profound healing, its accessible and the perfect gateway to reconnecting with Mother Earth, nature and plant spirits.
I will teach you about Cacao as a plant medicine, how to brew a powerful ceremonial drink with intention. How to hold space and develop your own way of gathering in circle to share Cacao. I will teach you prayers and invocations, as well as songs, drumming and many ways to open to the medicine and share it with others.
I teach from my own experience, teachings and understandings I have received from Great Spirit and plant medicine and I serve as a guide for you to develop your own relationship and understandings as we all come with our own unique gifts to give. So I aim to help you discover your gifts and bring them out so you can uniquely share with the world through the power and wisdom of our connection to the plant spirits.
Each retreat is uniquely catered for the individual or group (no more than 5 people at one time) we will discus your requirements pre retreat and form a program of daily mentoring.
HANNAH NEVILLE BRISTOL UK Voice Yoga Residencial "My stay with Vanessa has been really life-changing for me. I felt so comfortable to explore and understand my voice. Vanessa is gifted, with a wholesome knowledge. She guided me with the flow of me voice giving me skills and techniques that will last my lifetime. She has helped me find my confidence and after just two sessions I will continue to sing which I never thought I would of been capable to do. All down to her incredible support. Her space is magical - In the depths of the Costa Rican jungle (although a pretty easy route there from San José) you are surrounded by pure nature. A perfect place to chill and relax but also with an vast amount of things to do. I was fortunate to experience the Tinamaste Feria; where the community come together to sell what they grow, create and love. Plus yoga classes too. I would recommend coming to stay with Vanessa if you’ve ever wanted to explore your voice and need help to let go of fear that surrounds it. She offers a unique way to spread the joy of singing and you will see results."
