Event description


Celebrate the dawn of a fresh year for a truly magical evening of transformation & renewal!


The month of January is a peak time to create solid foundations for our year ahead. So to kick off our first Cacao Ceremony of 2018 we will be in strong visioning energy, grabbing the year by the horns & anchoring our intentions deep into the Earth.

Cacao is considered the Elixir of the Gods and has been used for thousands of years in Ceremony as a way to access a truth that is beyond the mind – as her Spirit is the pure essence of LOVE.

Cacao helps us open to the love that is our natural essence, offering creative solutions to challenges & change, and shows us a clear way forward as we navigate what it is to be fully ignited as the creative, powerful & gentle heart-based masters we are.

Combining embodiment, ancient intention-setting practice, dance, meditation & Cacao, we will go on a journey and dance to OPEN and EXPAND our HEARTS more deeply. Supporting us to create a beautiful 2018 that reflects all the integrity, of what it means to be ME.

Melt your heart open to the love and joy at your center.

Come back home to your authentic self.

Let go of inhibitions & connect to your desires, from your true source of power.

Surrender your mind & let go into your body & senses.


Cacao is a potent yet gentle plant medicine that has been used in shamanic rituals in South America for thousands of years, known for being a powerful tool for relaxing the body and melting the heart open. We use Ceremonial Grade Cacao from Guatemala for this journey, which is the highest vibrational form of Cacao. The Cacao works on a physical and an energetic level, opening the heart to more love and joy, activates the pineal gland which connect us to our deeper wisdom & clarity, & the high magnesium content in the cacao relaxes the body, melting tension and body armour.


We'll use shamanic practices to support transformation & embodiment processes to integrate fresh vibrational energy into your cells:

* Opening, Cacao offering & intention circle
* Art & writing: time to road-map & get clear on what we’re ready to create and call-in for 2018
* Ancient intention-setting practices to anchor the new into our quantum field
* Fire Ceremony
* Open and expand your Heart – embody love through dance (or meditation if you prefer!)
* Joyful Community – partner work and connections

To end this beautiful night, I feel very joyful to offer us all a Despacho Ceremony – an extremely powerful Andean practice that makes concrete our vision - & offers it as prayer to Pachamama (Mother Earth) & ourselves. We program everything that goes into the Despacho to help us create (concrete, grounded) miracles for the year ahead!

** Please note: If you are currently being treated for depression, Cacao may not be the medicine for you. The tryptophan and monoamino oxidase inhibitors of the Cacao are a bad mix with anti-depressant medicine. Can cause severe migraine, or worse. Please get in contact with me to discuss if this is a consideration for you.

Cacao has been used for centuries in different cultures as a tool to facilitate a reflective & meditative experience that focuses on the heart-space. Due to the active medicinal properties of Cacao, it is possible to experience a state of heightened awareness, which opens us to deeper-stored emotional densities that are ready to be seen, felt & released.

The euphoria-inducing properties of Cacao help us to connect deeply to the love, & ultimate truth, that sits inside our hearts.

When we sit with Cacao with the intention to open to ourselves & our own vulnerability, Cacao has the potential to create a profound yet gentle inner experience of heart transformation. To help activate this opening, I have sourced the highest Ceremonial-grade Guatemalan Cacao possible.

"The Cacao Ceremony held by Petra was one of the most beautiful and profound experiences of my life. She held the space beautifully with a lovely mix of acceptance, freedom of expression and guided visualisation. I laughed, I cried, I danced and sung. Mostly I connected with my ancient self, beyond all time, and felt very held in that process by Petra and Cacao."
Malindi Lovegrove-Lower, Co-Director of The Chocolate Yogi.

“Petra brings a level of integrity to the Ceremonial space that is rare to find in facilitators. Her ability to lead a experiential process along with her capacity to be attentive to all participant needs is outstanding. Her work is truly transformational - from her Cacao Ceremony I discovered a whole new part of myself that has stuck with me two years on. This has been a shared experience with friends and colleagues who have attended her events. I would recommend Petra and her work to anybody that is ready to address and directly tackle any potential limitations within themselves along with anybody looking to unleash their full potential.”
Sacha Damiano, Therapist & Neuro-coach

Known for the wisdom, integrity & authenticity she brings to her Ceremonial spaces, Petra opens the way for people to experience their own personal enlivened truth. Driven by a desire for all beings to walk powerfully in their most integrated Self, she creates a deliciously ripe yet safe container for people to explore true connection, in this moment.
With 20 years on the healing path, her practice combines somatic process, earth-based Ceremonial methodology, metaphysical causality and practical, heart-centered action, supporting individuals to walk in the truth of their own empowerment.
Petra brings an embodied quality of softness & strength to Cacao Ceremonies, her therapeutic individual sessions, the online workshop space she facilitates, and the pilgrimages she leads around the world. She has studied the Science of Psychology at Uni, holds a Cert III in Psychosomatic Therapy, specialises in trauma therapy / neural re-wiring, & has a compulsive tendency to do cartwheels and handstands whenever she’s in a park. And dance. Anywhere, anytime!
