Is a ritual observances and procedures performed at grand and formal occasions. During the immersion experience we will be holding space for Cacao Ceremony, and Temezcal. The intention of integrating these ceremonies to help us connect more with nature and the elements. Both Cacao and Temezcal are South American and Mexican Ancient traditions considered by today standards meditation and yoga considering the meditative and the union that takes place on a personal and collective level. The cacao ceremony uses CACAO locally harvested from the land by us, then it will be processed organically in the cacao factory in Macaw Lodge , which then the practitioner will cook for us w pure water; cacao is full of magnesium and is used as a heart opener, and was traded as a currency during the Mayan Civilization. Temezcal will commence with collectively collaborating as a group to connect with the land and then build it based on permaculture practices and principles using natural materials from the land; the way and the process of building the Temezcal is considered a ceremony because it is practiced with respect to nature and connection to the elements and the seven direction which enhances our senses or direction and presence. Then we will enter the Temezcal (Sweat Lodge) as a group and the partitioner will chant using a native sounds and vibrations to detox the mental body and etheric body as will as the physical.
The intention of incorporating the Cacao Ceremony and the Sweat Lodge is to practice spiritually connecting from the essence with the elements. to practice spiritually means to act from a place that's present. the reason why the spirit is connected always to the present moment is because the mind is a function of memory and patterns acquired from past experiences and impressions.
