It is recommended to follow a protocol for several days leading up to and including the day of, and after the ceremony. Get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. Avoid sugar, dairy, gluten, and red meat.

Integration is key to any plant medicine journey which is why we provide 3 cacao integration ceremonies and support while on retreat, along with post-retreat 1:1 + group integration. Much of the journey actually happens post-retreat, so it is very important that we continue working with whatever is coming up individually and collectively for the group. You will have a 90-minute 1:1 somatic healing session, along with a 90-minute group session post retreat.
