DISCOVER OUR FAMOUS 20-DAY CACAO CHALLENGE!
OUR NEXT ROUND BEGINS ON MARCH 3RD 2024
SINCE WE LAUNCHED OUR CACAO CHALLENGE OVER A YEAR AGO, WE HAVE WITNESSED THE PROFOUND HEALING & TRANSFORMATION IT HAS BROUGHT TO HUNDREDS OF PARTICIPANTS EACH ROUND!
We are blown away by just how many of people have embraced the challenge of sitting with cacao for 20 consecutive days!
Over the course of 20 days you will not only learn more about yourself but you will discover the secrets of an ancient culture, and create a life changing relationship with the medicine of cacao in the process.
SUPPORTED BY 20 SACRED ENERGIES
EACH DAY IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE GUIDED BY THE 20 SACRED ENERGIES OF THE CHOLQ'IJ CALENDAR. THESE ARE THE ENERGIES THAT GOVERN ALL OF LIFE & THE EARTH'S CYCLES.
Throughout the challenge we will experiment with different healing recipes, used by the Mayans from millennia and in the process deepen our understanding of both the 20 daily energies and our own personal Mayan energy.
ABOUT THE 20-DAY CACAO CHALLENGE!
CACAO IS A SACRED PLANT THAT HAS BEEN USED BY THE MAYANS FOR MILLENNIA TO CREATE HEALING, WELL-BEING, AND SUPPORT IN THE COMMUNITY. WORDS DO NOT SUFFICE WHEN IT COMES TO COVERING THE RICH HISTORY, IMPACT, AND BENEFITS OF THIS MEDICINE.
Our team has been on a decades long journey of research, and they are still uncovering new mind-blowing information about the ways in which their Mayan ancestors used this medicine.
A symbiosis with the entire universe, a tool for healing, and beneficial for the health of the Earth, the animals, and the human community are descriptions that only begin to explain cacao.
ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH CEREMONIAL CACAO?
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN STARTING TO DRINK CACAO TO BENEFIT FROM ITS INCREDIBLE PROPERTIES?
Either way, this challenge is for you!
Together we will go on a 20-day virtual journey, meeting for 60 minutes daily to share a cup of ceremonial cacao. Not only that, we will send you a list of ancient recipes that the Mayans have used to prepare their cacao for millennia. Recipes used for healing, to give strength to warriors, and to enter a state of transformation.
In our challenge we will explore the 20 sacred energies, making a different recipe to connect with each energy to heal from within.
We will close our Challenge with a sacred cacao ceremony guided by our Ajq'ijab' (Mayan spiritual leaders) and Aj Kakaw (guardians of the wisdom of cacao) from Guatemala.
This is an experience not to be missed!
SIGN UP BEFORE THE 18TH FEB TO MAKE SURE YOUR CACAO ARRIVES IN TIME!

How does it work?
FOR 20 DAYS, WE WILL MEET FOR A 60-MINUTE DAILY GROUP CALL AND SHARE A CUP OF CACAO.
This is a community event of connection, healing, and openness.
If you have been following us, you know there is a sacred calendar called the Cholq'ij (sacred calendar of life) and every day has a specific energy that carries us throughout the day and determines what will happen. In our challenge we will go through the 20 energies of the Cholq'ij, and every day we will explore each one through cacao.
As we mentioned, our teachers spent the last 15 years doing research and what they discovered will determine this Challenge...
Part of their research was dedicated to recipes, and they discovered there is a recipe for each nahual (energy of the Cholq'ij).
Let's look at an example: On the day that is carried by the energy of Ajaw Aj, you can mix cacao with chili to boost the healing of the nervous system. And since the energy of the day naturally activates that part of your body, the mix creates a powerful healing reaction.
Some days will heal the physical body, others will heal the emotions and mind, and others will help have a profound spiritual experience.
The 20-Day Challenge will cover all of the days, we will recreate recipes the Mayans were using thousands of years ago, and get to know the true ancient uses of cacao.
What Benefits can I expect?
- Overcome your anxiety
- Improve your depression
- Become more open and feel lighter
- Improve your overall health
- Less conflict in your relationships
- Revelations about your life and healing
- Learn your personal Mayan energy and how to work with it for self-improvement.
We could keep going with the benefits because here is the thing, there are very few areas of life cacao doesn't help with.
It crosses the blood brain barrier and regulates dopamine and serotonin, which are the happy chemicals! It doesn't only make you feel a heart opening, it literally contains amino-acids and fats that improve blood flow and relax the muscles.
Cacao puts your body in the perfect state between physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being!
When do we start and what time are the live calls?
The 20-Day Cacao Challenge starts on Sunday March 3rd.

What if I don’t find all the ingredients?
If you can’t find all of the ingredients, we recommend just the drink the cacao by itself.
There will be some ingredients, that can be substituted and we will provide this information within the recipe doc.
Will the 1lb of cacao last long enough for the challenge? What are the measurements?
If you have signed up for the Full Experience, the amount of cacao we send will be enough for both new and 'standard' drinkers.
Here is our recommended dosage for the Challenge.
0.5 oz (14 grams) for the first 10 days, and 1 oz (28 grams) for the last 10 days.
If you know you like your cacao a little stronger then we recommend adding a little more to your cart when you check out.
