Letter from Makenzie

Let's face it ~ times are a bit weird.

We are in an in-between stage.

On the leading edge of change.

As the men and women (you & us) that have been doing the work, it's our kuleana (Hawaiian word for responsibility) to share what we have received.

If there is one thing that Hawaii has taught me from living on her land, it is that when we learn something, or we receive something, we must share it generously.

It's our human nature to share what we have. Generosity IS the human spirit.

Think about how much you have received from the sacred medicine that is Cacao.

Think about all the times she has held you. Guided you. Blessed your days.

She is a warming reminder that we are loved and that living a magical life is our birthright.

You have applied to the Facilitator Embodiment Container because of the yearning in your heart to share what you have received thus far from Cacao.

This is the exact place from which I birthed KAKAO.

The moment she hit my cells for the first time seven years ago, we merged in ways I couldn't have even fathomed. She gifted me the vision of KAKAO and from that day onward I never traveled without a bag of ceremonial grade cacao to share with others - family, friends, airbnb hosts, strangers.

It became apparent that people love her. They wanted to work with her more. They wanted to welcome her into their life beyond me making it for them when I am in town.

So then it really began....

Guatemala called me way before I thought I was ready.

I had no money and I had no time. (Truly)

But I could hear the guidance loud and clear.

So I put a very cheap skyscanner flight on the last remaining balance of my credit card.

I told my intern that I was going to need extra support so I could do this for a week.

And I went. By myself. To a foreign country that 'isn't safe' with no one there that I knew. My grandmother was worried to death...she thought I was actually crazy.

It's been quite the journey since then. The spirit of Cacao has been our teacher and guide through it all.

We plan to share more of the story with you in this course, so that you can feel the roots & origins of KAKAO as an organization.

When you filled out your application, you got to read an overview of each module and what we intend to share in each call. It will be all of that AND more.

Michael and I have personally created our processes and developed our core principles as facilitators. In this course, we will be passing on what we have learned and created to date so that you can feel confident, ready and willing to share this medicine humbly with the people in your life.

Cacao has called you to share in her legacy, and we honor you for this. You and Cacao will dance in unique ways and co-create your own magic. Our role is not to impose on this sacred co-creation, but to be a supportive midwife in this unfolding that is personal to you.

We are ready to walk with you as custodians of this medicine. Sharing the journey is what brings us joy, fulfillment, and a true sense of legacy. We know you can relate.  This container has the capacity to imbue you with those same sensations in uplifting your path.

Michael and I create tight containers. Our version of 'sacred space' is free from hierarchy, competition, comparison or projection. When we enter into group ceremonies, we act as a shield between you and anything outside of your own energetic field so that you can really tune into YOUR truth. We innerstand the importance of letting the medicine do her work without too much interference, and we also innerstand the necessity of having a strong space-holder who can impart perspectives and guidance from a place of humble wisdom and integrated experiences. 

Thank you for trusting us with your journey and path in this way. Our promise to you, and our daily prayer, is to be a clear vessel for purity, for Truth, and for the sacred medicine. This is our integrity, which also means constant reflection on our own leadership so that we can honestly address our own mistakes as humans.

We have so much love and respect for this community and we can already sense the beauty of this container together.

See you soon,

Makenzie & Michael

"I’ve been LOVING the program so far. Your generosity in sharing (time and content) is such abundant energy to be in. I haven’t once considered whether I’m getting enough out of this program. My soul feels so nourished on these calls. Learning the human side of both of you through your personal anecdotes, as well as learning which healing modalities you use in your lives is my favourite so far. Since it’s rarely about what we are doing, but rather who we are being in life and while leading ceremonies that matters. It’s your energy, your habits, the healing modalities you use, your humanity and lessons you’ve learned as well as your lifestyle that I find so valuable. The sharing about your partnership and union has also been quite healing to hear. Thank you for trusting us enough with that information ❤️" - Anonymous Feedback Survey from Course Participant

"Thank you so much for the beautiful opening class and ceremony you held on Friday! It felt like such a powerful moment of initiation, and I was enthralled listening to your every word.  It felt like such a blessed, other-worldly journey. Thank you for your time, thank you for your knowledge, thank you for your trust, thank you for your guidance, thank you for sharing your magic with us.  I cannot wait to see how the inspiration, motivation and illumination of all that you will share with us will begin to shape our destinies as well. I have now listened to the recording of the first class in full, and I will surely listen to it again before we meet for the next module. It is just so inspiring to listen to the words as they come from your hearts and souls, but also as they are channeled through you by our beautiful Mama Cacao. I cannot wait to be sitting with you in blissful enthrallment and absorption for the entire duration of the next class. Thank you, dear Makenzie, dear Michael 🤍✨."  - Cynthia
