Cacao Ceremony – City Centre

22 March @ 6:00 am - 23 March @ 9:00 am

You are very welcome to join me for an afternoon in ceremony with Cacao, the heart opening and soul connecting medicine.

🔸Get out of your Head & into you Heart
🔸Recognise the light and gifts you hold
🔸Let go of whatever is in the way of that

A Cacao ceremony is an opportunity for you to connect with yourself and what is moving within you. With the help of Cacao to guide you deeper and help your beautiful heart to open, you can let go of what no longer serves and open to the expanse of who you really are and all the gifts you hold.

Cacao’s number one job is to open your heart! These ceremonies are a space for you to open to more self love and compassion and allow Cacao to show you messages from within about where you can open more, what needs to be released and how you can love yourself more, exactly as you are.

We will sit together, drink a delicious cup of Keith’s Cacao and allow this beautiful medicine to open our hearts and bring us to a place of deeper connection to ourselves, to each other and to whatever arises within the circle.

As it works its way into your system I will tell you about Cacao, why it’s used in spiritual practices all over the world, and how to work with her. Then, once you feel her calling you within, I will lead you on a meditation to connect deeper and then give space for you to journey with Cacao and follow the guidance she is showing you.

I will be there to hold a loving space for whatever may arise, and to offer support and guidance where needed. I have many tools I can offer to assist you to journey deeper with Cacao and unlock some of the messages coming through in order to get the most out of your journey.

Cacao is a powerful but gentle and loving teacher plant that can help you access deep parts of yourself that are calling for your attention and love. She can help you release old patterns of conditioning; emotional, physical and mental blocks that no longer serve; and welcome in more joy, more love and more magic in their place…. More of you!

Paula has been working deeply with cacao for many years in Guatemala, with the man behind the worldwide cacao resurgence, Keith Wilson aka ‘The Chocolate Shaman’. She has been leading Cacao ceremonies, Cacao dance and Cacao yoga in Dublin since 2015 and is absolutely in love with this medicine which has been so aptly named ‘The Food for The Shift’

Things to note:

🍫BYOC – Bring Your Own Cup
Please bring your favourite cup or mug to drink your cacao from

The MAOIs in cacao can interact with some anti-depressant medication so Google your meds. It’s not dangerous, just unpleasant as it can create a migraine. Let me know if you’re taking any as I may need to alter your dose, but you can absolutely still join.

Cacao is safe and really good for developing babies but your dose may need to be lowered, depending on the stage so let me know if that applies to you.

Cacao increases your heart rate 20-30% so if this would be a problem for you let me know and I will alter your dose. It’s an amazing heart medicine but you may need to start slower with it.



🚫Caffeine in the hours before as it may be over-stimulating and effect your connection to the cacao

🚫Dairy in the hours before as it counteracts all the goodies in cacao (hence, doctors suggesting dark over milk chocolate)

🚫Big meals in the hours before. Better to come with a nearly empty stomach. A small meal a couple of hours before is fine.


✔️Your favourite cup or mug
✔️A small meaningful object to add to the alter (if you like)
✔️A journal if you’d like
✔️Water, and come hydrated.
✔️Wear comfy clothes you’ll be happy to sit in for a few hours.

🍫I will have blocks of Keith’s Cacao available to purchase for €45 (11 ceremonial doses)

The Cacao I use is Keith’s Cacao, which is unparalleled in quality. If you would like to learn more about ceremonial cacao in preparation for the ceremony, have a read of Keith’s blog:

Looking forward to sharing this space with you.

Much love,
