Join Anu Peter as he guides you in a sacred ceremony with two perfect ceremonial companions, cacao and Clarity Breathwork. As a shamanic practitioner skilled and experienced in ministering sacred plant medicine ceremonies, Anu Peter treats this as a similarly sacred practice, giving it wings to support the clearing away of old energies, patterns, conditioning, thoughts, and emotions, and removing our blocks to expanded perspectives, inner/higher guidance, self love and forgiveness, and personal clarity. As with other plant medicine ceremonies, by engaging in an intentional, respectful, heart-felt practice with cacao, we invoke the benevolent spirit of the plant to assist us through her sacred wisdom and divine intelligence. Cacao can provide ecstatic experiences as well as moments of relaxation, and can help to release inner blockages, opening our hearts and clearing pathways to personal harmony and peace.

Breathwork allows us access to our own innate ability to heal and to feel, process, and release emotions, to connect to inner guidance, and to bring clarity and transformation into our lives. Following the ceremonial drinking of cacao, Anu Peter will skillfully guide you to merge your inhale and exhale into a pattern of circular breathing. When you relax into this circular breathing, it becomes effortless, and you are taken on a somatic, experiential inner journey which may surprise you with its depth. Many say the experience of breathwork can be as powerful as taking a psychedelic, and indeed, breathwork does give us access to similar altered states. By changing the balance of CO2 and oxygen in our body, breathwork makes our blood more alkaline, which creates changes in our brain; this decreases the activity in the prefrontal cortex, allowing us to step beyond our ego and everyday mind, and to access valuable insights and broader perspectives about our selves and our lives.

How to Prepare

Anu Peter suggests you prepare yourself by coming to the ceremony with an open mind and heart, as well as with strong and clear intentions for what you would like to receive or get out of your experience.

What to Bring

Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring layers as body temperature can vary in this work. Bring a mat or pad – Anu Peter highly recommends that you bring a comfortable, cushioned pad such as foam or blow-up camping mat. You’ll be lying on your back for the session, and being comfortable without the hard floor interfering with your process can make a big difference. Anu Peter also recommends that you bring a small item of personal importance to place on the ceremony altar, as well as a blanket and a water bottle.

Health Notifications for Cacao and Breathwork

Cacao is a high-quality, raw, and unprocessed chocolate sacramental drink used for ceremonial purposes around the world, with origins in South America. Cacao is not recommended for people who are on above-average doses of SSRI antidepressants. Cacao increases blood flow to the brain and is a source of tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin; these can improve mental focus, mood, and your feeling of well-being. Breathwork is a powerful practice that creates subtle, temporary changes in our brain chemistry, enabling us to step into altered states of expanded consciousness. If you have any history (current or past) of cardiovascular issues, mental/emotional health challenges, physical limitations, epilepsy, recent surgery, or other mental or physical health challenges, you may want to check with your doctor before embarking on a journey with cacao and/or breathwork. If you are experiencing mental or physical health challenges or are taking an antidepressant, please be responsible for your own integrity and well-being, and please inform Anu Peter of your condition before any cacao or breathwork ceremony.
