Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony

With Alixe van Ogtrop

Alixe will guide you in a Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony. Cacao has a very gentle and loving energy. When drinking the cacao with intent, you can receive beautiful insights, connect more easily to your heart, and experience a lot of joy.


Cacao is an ancient medicine, the Aztecs valued cacao as gold, and this is not for nothing. Cacao is a gentle and powerful plant with strong healing qualities. The soft spirit of the cacao helps to open your heart so you can experience more love, gratitude, and joy in life. Through the cacao you can connect to your inner child, feeling playful and wondrous, or heal wounds from your childhood.

What you will learn:

As everything is energy, we will start the ceremony by setting an intention. We will drink the cacao that is infused with healing herbs with loving awareness. Alixe will then guide you on a healing journey to receive possible insights and let the cacao do its healing work. Since cacao also has a very joyful spirit, there will be room to enjoy singing, drumming and dancing (for those who want it).


In her ceremonies, Alixe creates a safe setting by working with nature's elements and the directions. She knows how to take people on a journey in a light and warm way. A journey inward to connect to your true Self.


Looking forward to celebrating the loving and joyful spirit of cacao together!

After a PTSD Alixe went on her own healing journey, when reconnecting with her True Self and coming back home (within) she could not, not start to guide other people back to their own Inner Being.
