For the last several months, I have been attending a local Wednesday night meditation group that is exploring the use of cacao as a partner in our personal work. The group is hosted by Rev. Shar of Lucid Waking, a show on A2Zen.fm. Cacao is the plant that chocolate comes from. Yep, I indulge in the yumminess of chocolate every week. You know that feel-good thing that happens when you have a piece of chocolate? Well, the kind of chocolate we use is very pure and has the qualities you would find in chocolate from heritage breed plants. Even taking a little makes you feel a lot good.
We also practice taking that feeling the comes from smiling…that little glow you can detect all over….and amplifying it. So we will be gathering on this first day after Summer Solstice to have some chocolate while we grow our smiles…. or perhaps I should say GLOW our smiles.
I have made a video to explore the light and the dark. Let it be an invitation to you to connect more with the light that lives within you.
(Note: The images used in this video are taken using kinetic photography at night. They are of the Harbor Bridge in Corpus Christi, Texas. It is lit with lights that put on a show every night. Enjoy!)
Curious About Cacao?
For more information about Ceremonial Cacao and Going to Glow, please visit Keith….lovingly known as the Chocolate Shaman. His site has lots of great information…. and while you are there, make sure to check out the quality of his smile. When you look at someone and can sense the peace in their heart the way I believe I can with Keith, you know they have something worth listening to.
