While doing my Cacao Ceremony training and journeying with Cacao I felt a strong pull to add dance into the mix. Not everyone who facilitates Cacao Ceremonies will do a dance element in their ceremonies, but for me, it was something that I really wanted to explore.
As I went deeper into the practice, I felt it constantly coming up – I needed to Dance Cacao out into the world. And so that’s what my ceremonies are. Dancing Cacao.
So why dance? Well for me, dance has always been in my blood. I started dancing when I was young, and carried through with dance training until I was around 22 years old. Since then it has always been a part of my life.
Dance has the ability to circulate our energy unlike any other form of exercise, in my humble little opinion. Energy that is stuck or stagnant means that our life can feel stuck or stagnant. Energy is meant to circulate, to move. Life force energy is meant to be moving, constantly. Dancing does this. It allows us freedom to let go of the daily chatter and go inward. I have personally found a deeper connection to self through dancing that I have through any other form of meditation.
Dance is energy, it’s connection, it’s truth, it’s love in motion, it’s self love, it’s freedom, it’s beauty, it’s the beat of our soul made visible.
Dance is also the quickest way I have found to connect to our Sacred Feminine energy. When we dance we are fluid, flow, connection, love, open, receiving, giving, sexual, sensual, playful, joyful, energetic, vibrant. All traits of the Sacred Feminine energy.
As I said, not all ceremonies you go to or see on social media will have a dance element. In fact most won’t. But for me, this is the truest path I could take to help bring Cacao out into the world, to bring healing out into the world.
And while for some it may seem daunting, I encourage you to be open and willing to allow the energy to just flow. With soul dancing, there is no right or wrong way. It just is. Soul dancing is all about the flow of your energy, moving through you.
