Do you desire to share cacao with others, whether it be your loved ones or with your community at large?

Are you eager to deepen your work with cacao and integrate the medicine into all areas of your life?

This container is for anyone that is already hosting cacao ceremonies OR anyone new to facilitation that would like to learn how to incorporate KAKAO into their offerings with integrity and confidence.

The intention for this container is to pass along the wisdom that Makenzie and Michael have gained from 7 years of sharing cacao with thousands of men & women worldwide.

The course will include (but is not limited to) how to create sacred space, the core values we uphold in every ceremony, and the key principles for cultivating truly transformational offerings.

You will walk away from this container feeling more confident to host your own cacao circles with integrity and humility. This course is intended to empower you in offering your gifts to your community in a bigger way, while holding you accountable to being truly embodied in the wisdom of cacao and your Soul's Truth.

"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
